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! :(
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

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 know Steve has had good experiences with four ashes Renault but me sisters fella who's owned a string of Renault sports had nothing but poor customer service and big delays!

Selling the clio for a house? I downgraded to a trophy to buy a house lol

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.
