    It was Hull Motorshow which we didn't attend as a club this year. It sounds like it was a great day out so we will be looking into possibly having our own stand on there next year. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Awesome pics Paul mate, car is looking tip top

    Since it was dry and sunny up here today, I serviced the car.

    oil/filter
    Cabin filter
    Fuel filter
    plugs
    Wiper blades

    All bosch prats.

    Brake fluid was changed not long ago when I did the front brake upgrade.

    Now time for few beers to see the new year in :)

    Inside all shiny again leather treated etc. Changing the inside to carbon fibre, still waiting on two bits to finish it off. (cup holders and clocks surround.) steering wheel is here but I'm not going to fit it till I have the rest. Still have all the irmy titanium items if I ever want to go back.

    Had the motor out for a run, first time in weeks. (normally just parked up on the drive for over winter). Be rude not to take a photo. IMG_20180108_162318_670-1528x1528.jpg

    I was after some new GSi badges for the doors. mine have seen better days (chrome peeling) and wanted some brand new ones. So thought i'll ring Vauxhall LMF etc to be told nolonger in stock and nolonger forsale. Checked UK ebay none forsale on there aswel. Typed GM part number on German ebay and showing one in stock, so send them a pm asking if they had anymore to which they said they did. So i now have two brand new GSi badges :)

    Can't beat German eBay Paul. Dave Bradley pointed me in that direction some time ago and I've never looked back!
