Can you tell me how much that was? 'Regular' insurance quote returns £40pm which is outwith my budget.

 

Try these guys, I use them for the Locost and have found them pretty decent.

I shall keep fingers crossed. It was quite pricey for me, but then I need business cover on it.

It works out the same as the Megane with Footman James at £255 for the year which I was very pleasantly surprised at. Let other interested parties take note of that who may think that this is an issue.

However I have done my calculations (I'm rubbish at Maths) and I would be spending all of my savings on this car with nothing left over to put it in for an MOT in April.

You may not consider yourself to be much good at maths but you are eminent at critical reasoning!   :grinning-smiley-043:

Mrs DW allowed the Nippa's battery to go flat. Had to go on a rescue mission. FFS. Was running like a sack of crap.

Then it fixed itself at some point on the 11 mile drive home.

That is absolutely undeniable, even if you NEVER mention it to anybody, ever.

The most annoying thing is that I otherwise enjoyed the drive so much that I'm wondering why on Earth I want to sell it.

Mason has been sold, and will be leaving the forum. It's moving back to the North East of England, and I'm delivering it on Saturday, and collecting my new motor. And Lord Sterling's Micra by the look of it too!

 

So, back on the gingercators.

Pleasingly, I've sold the clear set for what I paid for them. Which is nice. Very glad I ticked this box before prices rose completely out of range, but it has served as reminder that I just don't really like big cars. I'm amazed I put up with the XM for so long.

Farewell Mason!

 

Looks rather good in that photo.

 

 

How do you plan to collect two cars, though? Is Mrs DW coming along with you, or are we in for more 7.5t truck action?

  That Ian, is because you don't know what you want, but are determined to get it.  You'll be wanting a "fitted" kitchen next  :-D

I'm picking Lord Sterling up on my way. Double collection caper! Also, tiny Japanese hatchback battle.

Yup. Though it's going to be about 12 hours of driving in total, so I won't be filming all of it!

Might be a bit of a wait. We've only just put the latest issue out.
