My car has arrived at the dealer, have to wait until tomorrow for finance to be sorted (just so I can save £800 from Ford Credit) and get it valeted and fueled.....

I am soooo not gonna sleep tonight!
Wonder how sharp I can get away from work tomorrow.....

I am up in Edinburgh and have just got rid of my old Volvo under the scrapage so this should be a bit of a change for me


That said I did have a Scooby for a couple of years so used to fast cars, dont think this will come close to the driving experience though. That said I was scared of pot holes and speed bumps since it was so close to the ground so hopefully this will be more of an all round car. Mind you I already have plans to get all the the Montune stuff I can (want to keep warranty) and a set of eibachs so looking for somehere in central Scotland that can do them fitted for a bit less than Ford quoted.

Lets hope I dont park this one in a garage wall like the Scooby


Oh, its an Electric White ST2... with black wheels

mate! If you're anything like me then you won't sleep for the next few nights
it took about a week for me to return to normality! May not be quite as in your face as the scooby but it offers fun in spades and the engine note is awesome


I'm sure I could 'dispose' those black wheels for you though...

Hello and
to the club


It is always good to see another Scottish member


If there is anything you think I may be able to help you with feel free to drop me a PM


Speak to Colin Shillinglaw(Coco on the forum) at David Harrisons(Ford) in Galashiels regarding any Mountune upgrades and Eibachs...I can recommend them and Colin will do you a good deal

Thanks guys, only 4 hours to go. Going to sneak out at lunch time and collect about 12:30. Unfortunately I have a visitor at work today so have to babysit him until early evening... then I have to rush home to let the plasterer in to the house AGGH!!!

Can see me going for a proper driver about 1am tomorrow morning lol

Was on the bike last night so rode past the garage and into the yard on the way home hoping to get sight of the car but it must have been well hidden as couldnt find it


As for upgrades, have spoken to David Harrisons re the montune stuff and said I would be back in touch once I had 1K miles on the car (so I can appreciate the difference) Not asked about the eibachs yet but from what I can tell Ford charge about 400 when places like Puma only charge 200 supplied and fitted....

All in good time though...

And finally re pics - will have plenty no doubt as just bought myself a Nikon D90 last week as want to get start doing photography properly. Can see the car being the perfect model
