    Haha, knowing my luck i'd get hit by a bloody fire truck :sweatsmile:

    Thanks guys, yeah Friday I felt rubbish, but i'm fine today, still a bit of anxiety with traffic, but i'll survive. I'm not giving up driving, I love driving, it's my thing, I have been working with, on or in cars since I was little, now work with them as a living. I used to do a lot of trackdays when younger too. I was hoping to get to do a few more, last time I went on track was 2013 at Nürburgring.

    I even worked out I still have 4x 225/45/17 (and 2x 255/40/17) R888's in my attic, so I could get some Laguna Silverstones and throw them on!

    Don't worry, it's just a phase where everything has happened at once, i'll be back in a Clio soon (once I get paid out) :smiley:

    That's the spirit! Good to hear that it isn't getting you down! And having those track tyres available to you is a nice little motivator for getting back in a Clio :wink:

    Thanks Jimmy, yeah it's just a passing phase, i'm getting over it :smiley:

    Thanks Micah, I have seen that and it is so clean, but unfortunately I will be getting no where near that money (mine has more miles and not as clean). Also as much as I love LY I just cannot picture myself owning one, why I like the AB as it stands out, yet it is still relatively subtle.

    So some updates:

    * Been paid out (waiting for the cheque to clear....yeah who uses cheques? Why not BT it....stupid really).

    * Also random and I wasn't expecting it, but someone has bought my old 197 F1 (#93) and PM'd me on here, asking for some details on when it was serviced / belts done etc.

    He seemed like a lovely guy, I will let him make a thread and introduce himself to everyone, I gave him my number and I went through all the details with him.
    I also offered to send him all my paperwork / spare key, as it will help him know what is what, so I will be either meeting him when I go near his or get it out in the post.

    I am kind of happy it will hopefully live on, as it was a great car pre-crash.

    I am still looking for another 197, I have one I am potentially going to buy (once they get time to sort a few things / get some pics I have asked for).

    I hope everyone has a great Christmas / New Years, you better all eat and drink as much as I will be :smiley: (PS, tis bulking season :smiley: haha)

    Thanks for the update, and nice to know that your car is going to be in good hands (hopefully!). Best of luck with the search for a replacement - hope this one comes to fruition!
    All the best for Xmas and New year too!
