well, the white fella has been enjoying hoofing around the city centre for the past few weeks.
im still getting used to the different 'characteristics' of the new setup and working out whether
any of the new rattles and pops are going to cost me money!

Here he is parked beside Ted... I know, I know :P

Green GT's are much faster Bert :D maybe it is time for a yellow Clubman to join the 16v Club.

Hmm im fairly comitted to the1399cc as ive all the parts there,all though both cars are very impressive! id probably lean towards the suzuki as its a cheaper build and no massive alterations needed

FINALLY put some miles on him today. Had a lovely spin down to Waterford and back. Took in some lovely backroads too.
He's driving beautifully, the BMW head really is a hoot to drive. The temptation to give it the full shoe is unreal!
The interior needs a complete freshen up, new seats, dash etc... he's got some bodywork issues,
much like myself I spose :D

just some more pics.
