You know generally it's not necessary to obscure the license plates on a total ****box. I'm pretty sure nobody's going to be hacking the MOT system to track down the driveway that 265 is sitting in.

Nice to see you guys had appropriate weather though. Where are the drunken pics?

No drunken pics as we are all far too dull to just do a drunken meet.....shame.

I have to admit...despite being a moderator there...I often think that the 'mania' tag isn't deserved. It's more mania at the brochures and interior trim revisions...oh...and accessories...

I know your 760 is loosing Coolant , but was it really necessary to piss into the coolant resovoir with an audience present???

Erm, sorry to say it but this is a 700, not a 200, so the coolant res is on the drivers side.
