Late happy new year to you all...

Hey chaps...
Hope you all had an amazing Xmas and a good new year so far? Not been about much lately, just been mega busy with work and personal stuff.

Some of you might remember I got rid of the 330d and got a tree hugger car a few months back (1.8 Prius) to help cut costs etc. Well enough is enough, it was kinda doing my head in, so new year and new car

You only live once so I went out and bought a brand new car and got an amazing deal on it, way to good to pass up. It's not a Beemer, I'm staying with a smaller car for now but it's a corker and I'm totally smitten with it. Collect it from Seat on Friday, so until then I'll keep schtum about model details and post pics up over next weekend.

Just happy to be back in a normal sporty car again.

So have I missed much since being away?

We enforced a strictly no SEATs rule?

Welcome back. Did wonder how long you'd stick with the Prius. Bloody awful.

I can see why they appeal to some, but I just couldn't live with it. Deffo not me. Was actually a relaxing drive, and had more toys than the Beemer (being a 'T Spirit') but that wasn't enough

Very good guess Adam. I've got a Leon FR Supercopa in white

Spec is pretty good, adaptive xenons, full media pack etc. also have the upgrade black BBS rims. Will obviously add my personal touch to it ASAP

As a matter of fact, I just realised something I'd not thought about until right now. The FR is a Supercopa version. Pretty ironic considering what I do for a living

HNY to you Mart and welcome back. You'll be well pleased with the Leon, a pal of mine once owned a Leon Cupra tdi (150bhp) as a daily drive for five years or so - never had a thing go wrong with it, and it was a bloody fast little car as I remember always being impressed with its performance.
