Hello, friends!

Oh, I do feel good! Took Mama and Papa to Moseley for the first time in a week, it was nice to stretch my legs and see my mates at Moseley. Papa is enjoying the sound of my big turbo. Mama is enjoying my comfy seat and powerful air conditioning!

Just wish I could try out my new cruise control. Papa says it is not safe on the roads in Wolverhampton, too many other cars. So find a quiet road then, please?

Pretty please?

My new mirror sensor came today with a sheet of brass stiff enough to use for armour plate. No idea why he wants that! Thing is, my sensor is now working properly. And if I don't understand this, what chance has Papa got?

No point in him asking Lexia! Dunno where his learned to communicate but I can barely understand it. His old Xantia would have had NO chance!

Love to all
Otterchops

Hello, Friends!

I am a lucky girl! Not only have I had a much needed bath but not only has Papa wiped me down with a chammy but he is advancing with some cutting compound and polish.

Please take a picture of me so me friends know just how shiny I am!!!!

While waiting for his arms to stop aching after cutting my paint, Papa has looked up the date I hatched from my egg.

27 June 2002 in Rennes.

Don't remember much about that day if I am honest. But I do remember well Papa adopting me,

You need to get daddy to open his wallet and buy you a nice set of wheels or wheel trims to finish you off [emoji4] [emoji41]

Erm, Otterchps' Daddy has a nice set of Xsara centerless wheels to pop on, once they are cleaned up and have a bit of rubber attached.

Simple, Otterchops. Wait until Daddy shows you the hammer, and then start. When he puts it down again, if it is on the ground put one of your nice big wheels on it (as with the Yorkshire Wallet), and then turn off your engine.

I like the grey, classier than my rather weatherbeaten silver, with dings.
