The next 2 images really dont work when not on my phone as I have a programme called photosynth which stitches pictures together and you can do 360 views if wanted, but without the software............

Great day out - thanks all!


Didn't break down either! :cheesy:

Great day out all :D

Thanks to everyone who let me have a little run in their cars. Defo going to have to get a HDi 110 and 'Not' remap it :lol:

I must say I'm very impressed by the C5! For a Citreon the thing is bloody awesome! Built pretty well and the engine is awesome :lol:

All in all great day! Me and Nolingtonhards has a great expedition off road on the way out :lol:

290miles really taken it's toll on the Focus. Exhaust is blowing and that bloody steering shake I been complaining about all day :lol:
Although I think I know what the steering shake is. I put a few plogs of copper grease behind the disc. Wondering if the disc is flush to the hub?
It did make it though, there and back and did 46mpg! :lol:

Twas a grand day out. Unfortunately I've not got too many photos to add as my hands were a bit full to be taking pics - those who were there could testify to how lively my little boy is! He was asleep before we hit the M40 & woke up full of beans when we got in.

Was great meeting everyone & being able to put faces (& cars) to the names. Was a shame we were so late with the pic otherwise Omega's blue beast could've joined the line up.

Hope we can all do it again sometime in the not too distant future.

This new Sony Camera is 5 years newer than my last sony cybershot, and 500x worse. Hate the thing.

Dogslife (hiding behind CaptainJack) trying to connect his computer to Hangar18's tubby, but the tubby was having none of it.
Later, Sam diagnosed the temperature sender.
