    Seat Ateca...WTF happened.
    To be fair its only when you hit higher revs it kicks off, I just was not prepared for it! - if they have updated it maybe its quieter now?

    Indeed, looking at places over the next week or so. Waiting for the paperwork to come through as that should give me a better idea of exactly where I’ll be!

    I’ve been waiting a while for this chance so it’s not getting wasted...still hasn’t sunk in though!

    No car parts for a few months though. Snetterton trackday is the day before I start. :tearsofjoy:

    Thanks John!

    Don't worry, i'll teach you how to mug people when you get here mate, so that you can blend in.

    Cheers Mes! Gotta go and get some new shirts and ties now, moving on up! :wink:

    Hahahaha the best bit is I know you’re not even joking...:tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    Too true!! Will have an awful hybrid accent soon.....

    Cheers man, I’ve put a lot of time and money into this in the last 14 months, really don’t want to get rid.

    Still weighing up my options for a new car to commute with to work...might look at getting a 3 year lease of something like a TDI A1 and find somewhere for the Clio...
