    Ahh yes of course it is! It did look a little dark to be Titanium, but couldn't think of any other darker silvers at the time.

    Forgot about Nimbus, same as the 197's then! Love it.

    Did Ya! I've had a nosey in the plant room too! Big build! And I work within the assembly hall for the new 2litre Diesel engine

    And clio is costing too much just sitting on drive, it's not getting used like it should. I needed an Eco car due to the mrs being at aberystwyth uni, clio was costing a fortune in fuel to get there. Although it was a great drive! :worried:
    I hate to say it too, but the fiesta ecoboost is a great little car!

    He's on the turn... I love the diseasel, but after a run to the MOT test centre, I've fallen back in love and you won't want to regret selling her.

    I gave it a run to Wales the other weekend, and remembered how great the little clio is. But financially, with wanting to buy a house etc it makes sense

    My 172 and 182 were two of the most economical and cheap to run cars I've owned.

    Granted it's cheap considering the performance etc. But I was travelling 220 miles per weekend, plus back and forth to work. Was just too much

    I see. Not the sort of thing you want to be kept in the "what's going on" situation is it really.

    The odyssey lives!!!!.....picked her up earlier today....i aint half missed her purrrrring.
    Almost paid more than i was quoted as Lisa was getting muddled up on pricing.They had said the tracking needed checking so i took her to my local and understandingly she was well out,sorted that....a cold air feed pipe was missing luckily i had one spare at home..sorted that too...some of the mudguards hadnt been properly joined up so cable tied them...got a side light bulb out but can source one of them later.

    What do we all think about a Midlands Weekend - Camping Friday night for those who want to, Show and Shine on Saturday followed by an on going BBQ and a few beers. Camp or stay in a pub on the Saturday, then a small drive up a few roads and then clear off home?

    I'd say it's probably going to be hard to get any decent numbers for it - without something else going on tbh! Nice idea though for sure.
