indeed it was! I know, I regularly drive through cow roast as I do a little lap round Ashridge and Berko as a shakedown of new parts being fitted!

you certainly seem welcoming! not too bad, just trying to justify the 500 it's going to cost me to replace the coilovers after blowing both front dampers on a 'spirited' commute to Milton Keynes.

cheers, more than welcome to! although the steels need a refurb now and it's not sitting right since I buggered the coilies. ohwell!

Hey Jake, I saw you taking it easy over the Tring speedbumps the other day - love the steelies, suits the Fabia well.

I'm in Tring too, keep an eye out for my met. red Mk3 with Vento nose , or I'll be walking a mental little spaniel along the high street Very Happy

Usually parked up near the museum mate. Not sure if it counts as a convoy if it's only 3 miles to Cow Roast Very Happy But yeah I'm up for that haha

PS - If your Borbets don't work out let me know, I'm looking at selling my 16" 9j DZ Exclusivs which are 5x100 too, refurb required but would have some nice fresh + stretched rubber on there Wink

I'll be out there later to faf with the battery, will get a couple of shots then, I think it has Proxes on there, but will have to double-check that Smile Price wise I had in mind 450 ish, bearing in mind the refurb - easily best part of a grand new!

I'm parked up nr The Caste, wheels are a bit dirty at the moment but feel free to take a peek. I'll be over there sometime after 7ish, trying to figure out why my battery keeps draining!
