    will good morning,

    thought i better post and introduce myself after joining been a lurker but limit on the posts you can view meant i had better join.(not a bad way to get members)

    well my names Adam I live in Gwent work in Easton,Bristol mid 20s. family as well.

    car history is shocking really Nova SRI,Rover214,Escort,Fait Doblo,Ford Ranger.Work car is either a focus RS or Vito both in a blue and white colour scheme but been out in some other faster models T5,530d,X5,Freelander,VRS Octavia. also ride motorbikes currently ride a BMW1200gs free for the severn bridge.

    found my new car via a party a friend invited us to,its a 520i SE auto touring in blue on a R plate good condition and at price to good to pass up.collect it on Wednesday, pictures to follow because i want to give it a good clean.
    that will pretty much do for a intro i think.

    Adam

    thanks for the welcome,

    well I collected the yet to be named car today and had a nice drive down the duel carriageway from Abergaveny and I wasnt shaken by road which is normal for my 4x4 and lucky to see 70.

    its interesting getting to grips with a auto the only issue so far is i keep placing it in sports mode when i stop. the cruise control is a god send set it and forget a a bit more then 70.
    got back parked it only to discover some limited space on the drive means some creative thinking in terms of parking later.
    a few small jobs need doing a new front foglight,rubber seal replaced on front windscreen, and the airbag warning light is on.
    other then that its taken a 2 hours to give it a good clean, pre-rinse,shampoo,rinse,dry,polish and a quick wax,windows cleaned,back to blacked trim etc.looks really good got to sort inside tomorrow. might be tempted to give this detailing thing a go.
