Just like to say thanks to the register organisers and Sytner for the friendly welcome and hospitality today. My daughter and myself had an interesting day. It was good to put faces to names!

Thank you (everyone) for a great day!
Some amazing cars - we couldn't do it without all your support.

Mark Adkin said he loved seeing all the cars again.(and was reminded just how much he enjoyed working on them)

Thanks again,

Matt
Ps
Hope the journey home for everyone was pain-free. (especially Norman who had to travel to Gatwick)

Great day (and previous evening), cars and people. Thanks to all!

Sorry we couldn't join you on the drive: we were correct not to, though as we got home just as it hit dark, and the weather through the mountains after sundown was pretty horrific in places :evil: Made the end of the day 'interesting' :roll:

Until next time.... 8)

Very enjoyable day, must put my anorak away :wink: .
Thanks to Matt and Sytner for hosting the meeting, and Simon of course.
Good to meet fellow enthusiasts old and new.
Got caught up in a large spaced out convoy of vintage buses and coaches on the 2 lane stretch of the M11, the speed differential was frightening they were way acting like a rolling road block :shock:

I enjoyed a lot :D
Great day overall, people and cars!

And to make things interesting, on my way back and an hour after filling up the car and driving like a nun (between 65-75) on the motorway, I had a nice cling and some amber lights on: ABS light, traction control warning light and the exclamation mark light on and tyre pressure warning light on (I don't know where the latter came from, as I have no run flats...)

Later on the thing came off, to come back on again :x

So, tomorrow, after I sort out the Jag... :roll:

See now? These are my holidays... having the cars repaired.... :roll: :shock:

Nevertheless, I say again! IT'S BEEN A FANTASTIC WEEKEND :clap: Am glad I made it :yahoo:
I'll post some photos as well (from my blackberry) in a day or so
And the name is Marie-Noëlle or nick name MNL, NOT Marie or Noëlle ALONE; unless if you are looking for someone else and not me!!!
Car: D3 saloon 2007 and...a couple of cats made in 2003! and a little Scooby WRX STi...
