    Hi guys,

    Long time since I've been in here, always busy with work and life but had a few days off over Christmas so thought i'd have an explore.

    Firstly I need to say to Ichiban that this place is looking brilliant. Very smooth and easy on the eye. Well done CJ!

    So hows the car.... Well I've had it approaching 4 years and it's now just short of 100,000 miles. It's due it's service any day now so need to get it booked in for that. The clutch still occasionally slips (it's done this for 25,000 miles now) and probably will need doing sooner rather than later if I decide to keep her. I got a flat tyre last week and with the MOT due in the next few weeks asked them if they could MOT test it. Well it passed with no advisories with no preparation from me!

    The HFT decided it didn't want to play the last few days so thinking the module has gone. I'll whip it out and reconnect it and see if that solves it. If not it's new module (or ebay) although one from ebay will probably have a minimal life and a new one will be cost prohibitive so may need to scratch my head.

    Apart from that the cars lovely. Still enjoy driving her and average just under 50 MPG (based on fuel added and distance travelled). I keep thinking I'll sell her in another year but that just moves on. I'd struggle to find something with the same specification without spending a fortune so happy to keep her at the moment.

    Anyway hope everyone's well on here and Happy New Year (once we get there!).

    Great Christmas thanks and the kids loved it! Just thinking how giddy they'll be when they see the snow.

    Its sleeting by me at the moment, no work for another week, so hopefully I will be able to spend some time with the kids getting beaten up by them in the snow.
