I was bought a Jeremy Clarkson book, to stave off terminal boredom on long haul flights. It's a bit like being unconscious (certainly completely detached from reality) - but with the odd fit of inappropriate laughter! :-D

I must admit I enjoyed the Jeremy Clarkson books I've read... Definitely detached from reality - by a long way!

James May's worth a read too, much gentler, self-effacing BUT, in his own way, just as funny.

Do you have to be a club member or can you just turn up.
I was planning on taking the kids this afternoon as I only live 30mins away.

Quiet day today, I made an early exit when the rains came down.

Mr SteveTrainman was kind enough to give mine a once-over with his Lexia that displayed myriad faults but most could not be read or obliterated.
It has been hunting a bit lately (six months or so) and I suspect an injector being lazy.
Lexia recognised an injector fault but was unable to communicate with it.
Showed many other dire problems, none of which are manifest. Car goes as well as usual despite being severely mistreated.

Thanks again Steve
