BTW, were you at the builder's merchant for some tartan paint?

However, you clearly visit the champagne builder's merchants. Sod all like that ever parked near my local Jewsons!
champagne builders merchants??

LOadsa money round ere mate astons, bentleys, rollers, ferraris galore


My uncle has a DB9 and TBH it would be a toss for either that or the Bentley..

A customer took me out in his new XKR on a site visit the other week - beautiful car but a bit cheap inside - disappointed with the interior quality.

They are stunning - and so cheap in relative terms compared to their natural competitors. And factor in reliability/customer service etc when comparing to an Aston, as they usually are compared to, and it's almost a no brainer.

However, saw a white LP640 in my local village square today. Sounded awesome and everyone turned their head.

It just looks fab in my opinion, but it's a big car but with no rear interior space. It had the 20" rims on it and looked superb, bet there will be a diesel version in the next 18 months.

Hyundai - no sorry I did not think that.

I am no expert, but having seen the XK I can't help thinking that from the rear it looks too much like the very much cheaper Hyundai.





Not necessarily great representative pics but there are definate similarities.

It's amazing how well off these builders merchants are!

It's a bit like scrap dealers, whey do they always have Rolls Royces?

There are two women locally whom I know of that each own a Conti. GT. One is driven reasonably well, the other is used for driving around the district!

Moral of the story is Carlos, these women have wealthy husbands. So, if the thought of being a lady boy was abhorrent, maybe it's time to reconsider
