One assumes that 320T isn't posting this from a puddle of gearbox oil next to the M74, and the beast made it home by some means or other?

Sorry, emergency plumbing got in the way..

After a fine repast, we drove the long* and arduous trail to Cannock

IMG_20170916_101603.jpg
And I Woollarded like a pro!
IMG_20170916_101718_2CS.jpg

The auctions were a disappointment - with but a Marea Weekend to turn my head. It rapidly snapped back when I realised it was hamstrung with a 1.9jtd rather than the sonorous 2.4

Fuck knows, we got the hell outta Dodge!

She took £50 sheets to fill

IMG_20170916_111553.jpg

And the gutty was applied in full measure.

Heavy traffic from j14-19 on m6 took ages. Other than that it drove lovely, and you can drive round the issue. Sat at 70 with occasional foray to 71*

GLF m9 and is hingin inside

Old charter and tradition was achieved
IMG_20170916_143440.jpg

And things were seen to be going well

SERV light on doesn't spark much confidence that the next post will be positive either! At least the squiggly box light isn't lit though.

Despite the dyson one's feelings of foreboding,

All that happened on the next leg was it threw an eml.

IMG_20170916_180258.jpg

TADTS!

it ran up the road no bother, and I found new rear discs and pads in the boot. Along with the lack of any rear seats/trim

Did you have a stab at the Sharan, chief? Despite the 'cat' marker against, an automatic diesel one of those must be worth daft money.

We left before the auction started. And the front tyres were doing a great telly savalas impersonation

There was an oddly high number of 'insurance total loss' markers, even by Cannock's standards*.

Those discs are old stock and will be made of chocolate - green box Eicher brakes are the reason people complain about them

Newer red box stuff is made in the UK and actually pretty good (maybe not great for anything with a hint of performance mind)
