Well done Matt, so which do you prefer the 1500 or the Sprint?

I'll let you know after a few miles Tony! It really needs going through and setting up as it doesn't run as well as it should.. However the power available is noticeable and the auto is quite nice too..
The 1500HL won't be leaving the fold though!

Very little action with SWU of late due to C19 and also having stored the car at my parents while we have some building work at home.

However I decided I would take it for an MOT today. Even though exempt I wanted it checked thoroughly for peace of mind.

I'm happy to say it passed with one advisory for play in the nearside wheelbearing. I replaced this a while ago so will nip it up a little. My regular inspector was generally complimentary and noted that the underside was better than he expected. It was running a bit rich so they kindly tweeked the jets to get her through.

I'm very pleased and will now try and get some miles in as things hopefully get easier for us all.

Thanks Ian. Yes, it was nice of Steve to put it on the front cover.

The picture does flatter it a little though! Tidy and presentable it is, concourse it really isn't!

I'm happy with it for now though.
