Headed up to Manchester this morning for an all day meeting, leaving Oxford at about half past very early o'clock.

There were a few cars and lorries about which caused me to ease up occasionally, but this wasn't a problem as I revelled in the exquisite ability of the car to float away rapidly as I squeezed the throttle once the road was clear again.

Six and a half years and 160k miles on and I still fall in love whenever I have the opportunity to take advanatge of the prodigious power delivery from the B3S engine Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I think you need to get out more Laughing

I'm only joking, I'm 10 months in to the BT and I still love it...I couldn't truthfully say that about the Cayman...
