Morning all.
Sure you have all noticed my absence over the last couple of weeks.
I have been working in sleepy Suffolk but have managed to escape for a day to hopefully pick up my new TF, which has been sat at the dealers for the last 2 weeks :(
Only fly in the ointment is that I am waiting for my cover note to arrive in the post, as my insurer refused to fax it as 'its now against DVLA policy' to do this :cus:
So if you could all collectively cross your fingers they it should arrive and I can go get my new baby.
The new TF also worked out £!60 cheaper to insure than my old one, even though I have told them I will be transferring the mods over, which was nice :)
I off back to Suffolk tonight for 2-3 weeks so it looks like I will be running the new car in on the way to Highlander :err: something I was trying to avoid.

Good to hear from you again, even if only briefly. I ran my TF in on the way to last years Highlander, starting off with 200 miles on clock. Started to improve by Newcastle on the way back afterwards.

Hi Steve, good to see you are still with us mate. Where abouts are you stationed in Suffolk? Not too far from me, maybe we can get together for a natter?
I am working at Sizewell, and stopping in a place called Westleton (nearest town is about 20 miles away :bigeyes: )
Its still a good distance from you Andy, but I would still be willing to meet up for a chat if you wanted. Just give me a bell on my mobile after 7PM mate and we'll see if we can arrange something.

I saw the post van go up the road so drove down there and apprehended the postie, but he didn't have any post for me :cus:
Then spent a hour on the phone to my insurance explaining the situation and I think I have finally managed to get them to fax a copy of the cover note to the garage.

Edit: Garage just rang, they have the fax, so will be back in a hour or 2 with pics :bgrin2: :bgrin2: :bgrin2: :bgrin2:

Not much point when I have to use of a brand new Ford Focus hire car + fuel for free ;)
And I'm less concerned about leaving the Focus outside the hotel every night. If I was in the TF I would never get any sleep as I would be checking it was OK every few seconds.
