...as the saying goes Jim, if we all liked the same thing it'd be a boring world! :)

You really should have taken dad up on his offer to drive HKY (the Prestige) back from the convoy. Certainly characterful - no self cancelling indicators, Diravi steering, much softer than an XM, seats in a different league of comfort ALTOGETHER to the XMs. CXs look much better than XMs too IMO. etc etc etc....

This could easily turn into another FCF 'offtopic' topic :lol: and I know there's many XM fans on here, but c'est la vie that we don't all like the same things! :)

Anyhoo - anyone else thinking of coming? Not long now! :!:

Time-wise, we think we'll probably be there at around 1.00 - 1.30 in time for the convoy to Barry's. :)

Weather looks promising too, with highs of 17 degrees...! :o :lol: :roll:
