    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : lots !

    Default Trusty old workhorse.....

    Poor old girl - 1100 mile round trip Sun - Tue ( averaged 41.8 mpg ) and then straight into an MOT !

    Passed with a comment on the handbrake travel - I fitted new pads but don't think they've quite taken up yet.

    Holiday / Tour.

    Going with two mates, stopping at camp-sites / hostels - maybe the odd hotel.

    Original route involved going up through Denmark/Sweden/Ferry to Latvia/Lithuania/Poland to Germany - but we decided it was way too much driving for 2 weeks.

    Sorry for the thread - Hi-Jack.
