    ...so it would have been rude not to have a run out. 165 miles in total, mostly top down on some lovely Peaks and South Yorks roads. A very cold wind on the top of Snake Pass with a bit of snow about but still a great day. All wrapped up, heated seats on and blower working well, what's not to like. Oh yes a small shower which was not forecast:eek:, roof up quick for a few miles then back down again.

    Probably not this year Gary, now we have the 3 litre, the mileage is split between them. If we'd just got the 2.2, then definitely yes;)

    He doesn't actually drive it much Sean.
    He told me raises the rear end up, sticks it on axle stands, runs the engine on fast idle with it in fifth gear :rolleyes:.
