Having been 'mothballed' back in December, I finally got the old girl back...

[ATTACH]29968[/ATTACH]

Connected the battery, let it sit for 5 minuets then fired her up. Not bad considering it's sat in a barn for 9 months. (I can sell it as a barn find?).

Treated he to a full tank of Shell V-Power and been fine, but she'll be playing second fiddle to the Abarth. Forgot how much I loved it's smooth ride and V8 burble.

 

On another note, this is the first year since 2011 that I've not bought a car! :O

Thanks!

 

Test drove a fair few vehicles, but the Mercedes always felt the most special to be behind the wheel of even though the interior is a bit old now compared to an Audi A3 for example. That steering wheel just felt & looked the best.

 

Will be good to finally drive a car with apple carplay too.

 

Love the BMW 2 series on the outside but BMW interiors (other than the new 5/7 series) are just awful aesthetically.

Probably going to change the boost controller first, internally it's pretty much the same as the high pressure turbo, the LPT just farts out its boost before it does anything interesting. That'll give me about 50 ponies, after that it'll be stiffening the suspension as it's an absolute boat. maybe after i'll lookl at changing the pipes because with a proper kit the red block sounds angry as hell.

A few weeks ago I spent a few days on the Isle of Skye, needed time away from it all and its the perfect place, just me, the Abarth and open(twisty) road.

Having been there many times as a child, it was great to actually drive there myself. :)
