    YES. 
    I don't drink any more so you're all slightly* safer too. 
    Considering I only own sports toasters now and have no car buying plans (?!), I'm not sure which I'll bring, probably the Civic as it's more interesting, and doesn't scrape on much for how low it is. I can't sleep in either (probably) so I'll likely tent it. I hate storing tents...

    Yaris has had a slow flat since I bought it. Goes down every 3 days. 
    Asked the tuning shop to sort it with the exhaust, they couldn't find an issue. 
    It was audibly leaking...
     
    Anyway there's a local car guy I see around a lot that's recently bought an EG Civic. I've spoken to him on Instagram but that's it. It transpired he was a tyre fitter at my local Ford dealer and was happy to do a repair in exchange for a set of EG wheeltrims I had knocking about. Win win. He found the hole easily, but it hadn't gone through the tyre completely hence why they couldn't find an issue the first time. Drilled out and plugged, sorted.

    Quite the opposite, they're brilliant. If you have a tame fitter it's about the cheapest way to do tyres.

    Had a stainless exhaust made up for the Yaris. 
    Sounds very subtle but fun. Just what it needed. The torque curve has really smoothed out, it doesn't scrabble for grip and tramp off the mark now.

    Rightio, the nagging has paid off and I've got it booked.  Location is my mates field/woods/campsite near Bridgnorth in Shropshire.  Should be quite reasonably priced so long as we tidy up afterwards.

    Lets make the location easy to find.
    What3 words to the entrance.  ///bungalows.next.windmills
    Which looks like this

    The open one on the left.
    From above.

    Access is from Ashfield Road, the track marked on Google heading South East doesn't exist as far as I know.

    Rounded out my unemployment by spending the week driving the Civic and generally larking about. 


    I also picked up some more goodies for it, SiR door cards which are a bit better for sound deadening and look lush, and an unfinished JDM rear plate conversion that I'm going to prep and have painted. 



    I'm now an IT consultant.
