    Having ordered our new 145 Autoquest in Feb at the NEC we will be going up to Cumbria in two weeks to pick the vehicle up.
    Going to start with a five day trip in the Lake District to familiarise ourselves then heading into Europe for three months in September::bigsmile:
    Very exciting if a little daunting

    Hi and welcome to the fun from another local, if you can drive in Devon you can drive anywhere, hee hee. Do check out the rallies and meets calander, we do have a few in the south west. Don't forget the chatroom, I live there most evenings and we have a quiz on Thursday evenings (8pm in the quiz room)

    :ROFLMAO: your eternal optimism never fails to impress and amaze, Brian.

    welcome to the fun and take the old curmudgeons with a pinch of salt - at least you will get good advice on here as to the best scratch removers and the cheapest wing mirror repairs :thumb:

    Hiya

    We found Zummerzet the quickest place to remove a wing mirror, though I can see Hilldweller's logic; we've been lucky not to wreck motorbike plastic on several occasions up there. Bladdy tuggers LOL - although he had forgotten to hitch it up but evidently thought he was towing it, according to his road positioning!

    and test for leaks..

    seriously, some things you do need to find and get sorted before you hit the road for the big one.

    welcome, some great information here, the search feature is brilliant.

    Nip down to SUNNY Wrenbury and I'll show you the scars ! Luckily FIAT wing mirrors are tough.
