Well after 4 months SORN'd in my mates garage it was time to unleash the beast (well as much as a beast a 16v can be). Thankfully started right on the button and took it for a steady and extended drive home. Everything fine but I had forgotten how cr@p the bodywork is so that's the biggy for this year. I'm hoping to scrape together c £3k for the task but it means my youngest will be unable to go to uni in September. I think the phrase 'sacrifices have to be made' will be over used in the coming months but I'm sure she'll understand..
