    You don't need much of an excuse for a drive out Andy. Great photos as usual but where was all the traffic, you looked like you had all the roads all to yourself;)

    Great photos - I was in the lakes beginning of December minus my Z3 as it just lashed down constantly. But I am planning a few road trips there early next year. I love the place just need to make sure my Z is 100% ready. I have a split lower air intake hose (engine mgmt light on) and a heavy accelerator at present so they are next on my to do list.

    Christmas day was lovely here with bright sunshine and no wind. Boxing Day was terrible wet most of the day. I whimped out of watching live football and spent most of the day in the pub watching football :):)
