Nice one, how many does that take you to in total? I get the feeling you and I have enough to last a lifetime now but I bet we both end up with even more at some point!
Slowly but surely doing things to the TZD now, replaced to knackered lights, put four TZD wheel trims on, new parcel shelf fitted, now it urgently wants handbrake cable(s), some tyres (have some here though on BX wheels) plus spheres changing and then Octopus relacement/repair.

A really neat AX went locally for £350. Is it a case of any small car so long as it's good (and not a Fiat!?) :wink: ?

Success! Have bought a Polo 1.0 Boulevard 3dr Coupe on a L plate with Mot until December and tax until May for £250! Needs a damn good clean and had a dent in the rear wing but its rust free and i think a bargain.

Problem is I have to go to Surrey to fetch it TONIGHT! as the guys going to Poland tomorrow for 2 weeks! So am leaving work at 4! 300 miles later we should be back! Then off to London again Sunday for the TZS auto.

I must be mad!

I've met you Tim and IMO you're not mad. Well, nothing that can't be controlled with medication... Good luck, and bon voyage! BTW Where in London is the BX?

Philip I`m wondering if you`re thinking what I`m thinking, as regards to where abouts in London Tim is going?
