    Default Leighton Buzzard McMini Meet...

    I met up with Mark (GSi3.2) for breakfast this morning, you can probably guess where. After an average helping of McSlop we began with a little drive.

    Mark seemed pleasantly surprised in driving my diesel, but I'll let him do the talking.

    I also took his GSi for a spin, now thats a lot of fun. Seriously good power and it seems to love getting a good hammering!!! We got into a little but of fun with an Astra whilst I was driving the GSI, which ended up with me driving at, well, friggin quick, and the Astra in the background - although it did surprise us is all I'll say!

    Next, on for some piccies.....



















    As per discussions today, we definitly need more meets in the South. There's a number of us down here, watch this space.......

    Thanks Mark - enjoyed that, see ya soon.

    R-man and Mrs R-man (as appeared in picture 6 running away).

    Cheers lad's,

    That was a good morning..And yes, I was suprised with the CDti 150...Could even buy one myself..

    If you want a new game guess how much fuel Rob used in 8 miles in the GSi and guess what the MINIMUM fuel consumption he acheived in it was..

    'shiney, shiney' pics to follow in the morning when I'm not on this 3G laptop..

    As rob said, with the exception of Phil's East mid's , there's not a lot going on down here.. at the moment it's two..anyone else??

    I bet he used a lot less than you, I don,t know too much about deisels, i think they still do many to the gallon even when hammered, I,ll take an "un"educated guess say 30mile to the gallon.
