What photo uploader do we use


Many use photobucket or tinypic - it'll give you the option to create a link. The direct one works ok for me although apparently not for some confused

Yes was a good drive

9 hours in total
Filling tank up in Southampton
Major rush in Southampton

Then half hour break at
Stafford and Gretna

with mostly relaxed driving and a few spots of whizzing past people

Car never missed a beat and was pleasure to drive
Was coming off a night shift so I was flagging at end

The n/s reflector often falls off, perhaps the heat from the exhaust melts the retaining pins, the o/s never seems to fall off. And whilst the o/s one is still available new (Partsworld) the n/s is not available, and they both appear to be unique to the Coupe. MOT test requires 2 separate reflectors at the back, but they can be pretty much anywhere (in similar positions) and there's no minimum size specified, they just have to be proper reflectors and not reflective tape.

Thanks for that, Dave-

they look like OE running-lights...

I can't wait to see this, now...

Hey Alan- no rear wiper I see; and is that an additional gauge in your centre console..??

Eagle eye to spot that from pictures provided

I have a boost gauge far right next to drivers door

And the one next to centre console is a
AFM
Air fuel meter

I think I need to hire a co pilot to check all these gauges as I drive along lol

Yes no back wiper replaced with black cap so actually looks good without it and I’m used to driving a van where I can’t look out the back anyway
