Hey Callum, long time no see. How are you?
There have been many changes since you were last on here. Too many to talk about on a thread so how about a catch up sometime.
The little red MK3 is Lui. We parted with Ripley and Robbie a couple of years ago as they just weren't getting used enough. The Mk3 is so much fun though :D

Hope you are well and no doubt still working hard. We're still at the same address if you fancy dropping in for a coffee over the festive season :th:

Which car to bring - fast or faster? That is the question... :)

It's the same colour as VC's, 2003 facelift 57000 miles in really good condition apart from the wheels needing to be refurbed, I'm working for the next 11 days so will take photos after then :)

I've had BMW wheels done and various other bits and bobs on jimi's recommendation. Does a great job but I think his prices have gone up to nearer £45 a wheel. Still worth if for a cracking job :th:
