    hi All

    Just got my 1998 gsi back - bought new in 1998, sold in 2003, tracked down and returned to me by my son this year. Just got 12 months mot put on it and looking forward to many happy hours.

    Many thanks James - I love you xx

    Thanks, all.

    S599 BVV now has refurbished alloys, new discs and pads all round, new wiper, rear boot struts etc etc and have started 'fumigating' the interior including new plywood, felt and soundproofing in the boot. Me and James taking it on a run to Newark tomorrow so anyone on the A57 watch out for us. Exhaust wasn't an MOT fail but it's certainly blowing from behind the engine and you might hear us before you see us.

    mine got MoT'd last week, there is an ever so slight blow from the flexi at the downpipe, it still passed and wasn't even an advisory.... i think it makes the v6 sound even better so i'm in no rush to fix haha
