New comer - Progress (edit)

Post by Hawaiis0 »

Hi All

I am now the proud owner of BRG Excel SA acquired on Friday :D . Having got the speedo up to 155mph on the journey home :shock: , I was disappointed to still be doing 50mph whilst stationary at the lights :lol: . First expense was a replacement instrument from Lotusbits on Saturday. :D

Now fully hooked and thinking what have I done! But looking forward to playtime :).

Looking forward to chatting with you and meeting you on the road.

Stu

Which is entirely appropriate and just right for keeping things loosened up. :D

Big Jim - I think the colour is great too :D It's an auto, and you have just missed one which was being touted on ebay and the forum ( Green too :!: ) I say missed - I havent seen the sale confirmed any where yet and would have been a steal.
