i know my insurance rep very well:) at 18 i bought a 1.9tdi fr ibiza, remapped it etc, got bored, bought a cavalier sri and loved it but got bored, then bought astra gsi, put a bigger turbo in it etc for 300bhp but was too lethal for my low driving experience. thanks for welcome

Hiya James and
to the
club

You don't need a photobucket site, you can upload photos as an attachment. When you are replying in a topic, just under the writing space is the attachment editor where you can add your photos
