    Default Interviews, Beer and remaps...

    Well this has been an interesting 2 days!

    Yesterday I got up and drove down to Luton for me Interview...I think it went OK but it was a "competance based" interview so I struggled to sell myself. I will find out more in the next fortnight.

    Then Last night I met up with Cara, Mark and their lovely cats...They were kind enough to let me join them for a glass of coke or two

    We were joined by Cabbie and Gizmo....

    Gotta say I really enjoyed myself Really chuffed to me you all...

    Today I got up (eventually) then went back to bed.... Then I had to Check out. I Deboxed the engine so it would have settled down again for my next stop. I'd forgotten how gutless the 120 is...

    I headed off to 888/VXPC and before I knew it I was ordering a remap and a possible F1 style rear diffuser that they're talkin about doing. They did try to sell me a Carbon Fibre tail gate but I was able to say no to that one.

    I walked into the building shaking like a little kid....

    What was interesting was Tony took a copy of my existing map. While he set it up I noticed loads of faults being recorded on Tech 2. He sorted them out there and then as none where major..but I was surprised at the fault list for a car that as far as I knew was fine.

    The remap will be ready in a week or two so I guess I've gotta go back.

    Another interesting thing...

    On the way down on the M1 I was passed by a 2.2 SRi and an Astra VXR...I had my camera set up for time lapse photos on the way down so I fired a couple of shots off. Any guess who was at 888...The Astra. He said he S*** himself when he saw me cause He thought I was a copper.
