It wasn't a complaint :unsure They were more head-buts anyway :laughing2 I'm a dog fan, and I made a couple more friends... :) I've told them to sit under your petrol tank to prevent you changing it if they spot you not resting your foot...

Great show as always. Thanks to Paul for sorting out the passes.

Good to give the 416 blast up and down then M1/M69/A46/M40.

As others have said about their cars, mine performed faultlessly too.

I don't use my air con because I've noticed the engine revs run higher and lower and higher and lower - seems to switch maybe every 10 secs.

When driving you can feel the difference in pulling when driving.

Is this normal?

Glad that it's normal - might start using it a bit more then! Found it a bit offputting at first - not the air con, but the engine behaviour when using it. Only very subtle, but noticeable.

and to those that didn't arrive, i hope you had a good excuse :glare

i had a damaged foot, advisories that i shouldn't drive due to the quantity of drugs required to make it bearable, the inability to wear footwear due to swelling but i still managed to do the 260 mile round trip with family in tow to get there (even if i was in a 75 :laughing2 )
