The Diesel V's will never make the growl as their turbos dampen it so much and the DPF and exhausts are setup to pull the noise right back :(

When I say this episode of Top Gear with this car, I had to agree with their choice of music. Fast Forward to 3.50 minutes;

Well the 407 sailed through it's MOT on Monday morning without any problems :)

I got a text from Steve earlier to say he is coming to collect it tomorrow morning which is a shame as I'm quite gutted at the prospect of this one going. However, at least she's going to a good home and will be looked after.

On the other car front... The Activa and the XM haven't done much at all this year. The Activa can't have done more then a couple of hundred miles and the XM so far has only been to it's MOT and back again so in some ways I'm glad that the 407 is venturing to a new home as it'll allow me to spend a bit more time with the others and use them a little more over the summer months.

And she's gone... Steve has rehomed my 407 Coupe :(

Really hope the car lives up to Steve's expectations and behaves as well for him as it has done for me in the last 12 months.

It's a manual, they don't do gearbox faults :) Especially not at 27k miles!
