Drove to Essex... Picked up Albs... on to East London... hooked up A-frame plus 2.2 Omega... back to Essex... dropped off Albs... then back to sleepy Suffolk... parked up both cars.

Checked BC and I averaged 24.1mpg on the trip... gotta be happy with that!!  ;D :y

Congrats, I take it being Peugeot means what I think it means?  All the best, and I really hope it works as well as it should.

It does mean what you think ;) I've had to "take a flyer" to a degree as the contracts aren't signed and sealed but needed to get it delivered before the end of the month to get the deal I had hammered out ::)

No major problems with the contracts, just waiting for written confirmation of a couple of agreements we have made verbally :y

Should (hopefully) go fully live on November 7th

Good luck with it, LD! If this is all what I think it is then you can now legitimately go and get a Halfords trade card, too..  :D

I spent the best part of 600 in there on Saturday.. trade card would have been very handy  ;D ;D Though I see now all you need is a business card, according to their website..
