NA nice day out

had the B5 serviced today in Nottingham no dramas many thanks to Gary Lott for the hospitality, Perhaps if I bring Mrs S next time we could go home with the epic B5 touring, the green of the d3 is wonderful too. A great drive home as well.

Have a great Christmas and will look forward to meeting you when you come over to Nottingham.
Looking forward to having a good look at the new B5 though I fear Christmas might leave me a little short...

SYTNER NOTTINGHAM

I must have rung service four times and was promised a call back each time but never rung, even left messages with the guy who delt with me last time, will be looking for a new Alpina specialist at this rate....

anything in the North East that would measure up for my perfect, to date service record
