Hi everyone,

I bought a white facelift st3 in october but not driving it yet due to insurance costs!

But as soon as it goes down (due to my age) i'll be on the road and can't wait.

Been reading this forum for a couple of months now so thought I better post something lol

Cheers

Must be torture having it sitting outside. Do you have a trickle charger on it, or is it being driven by someone else? Having a car sitting there for so long doesn't do it any good.

But surely you looked at the insurance costs before buying a car?

Well its in storage at a different location so not seeing it everyday kind of softens the blow. But at the same time puts bad thoughts in my head if you know what I mean.

But not long to go now. Got a new slr camera for christmas so it'll be picture time at every opportunity!

Yeah it's not good. My mates got a pb prefacelift and I loved the noise it made. It's the main reason I bought one! Bringing it home Sunday hopefully so get some pictures up.

Welcome along mate and good on you. Buying a car knowing you won't be driving takes some balls, bet you can't wait to get behind the wheel.

Tick tock......not long now! Lol.
