Brilliant stuff Keith. Is that 250,000 on the clock? Did it start working normally again?

You're an inspiration to us all.

Fantastic!

I had every intention of taking a pic of mine at 123456 with 789.0 on the trip, I reset the trip at the correct moment in preparation.

When I got in the car I was too busy driving to notice it tick over....dammit

Brilliant stuff Keith!!

To think I didn't buy that car before you did as the PPI came back saying it was poorly. Wish I'd bloody bought it! I'd love to get to the bottom of that. nooo

How the hell do you do 25k per year? I always pictured you sat in your studio painting all day.
Anyway cracking usage. I might get out next summer for a run providing car is how I want it by then. Thumb

What a landmark Keith. What a car! Does your local fuel station give you a loyalty card?

Congratulations.
