PX isnt great, as expected tbh,

i stripped the parts off the m3, and put it up for sale (half heartedly)

if it doesnt sell i ll be glad to be honest, so it can stay in the family!

yeah why not, it's a great car in its own right, plus.. are we gonna see a head to head drag race of them two while at your possession? It'll be good to make a little video on a private farm road of course

Congrats on your purchase, I bet Saturday can't come soon enough!

Congrats mate....don't get carried away on the run home and keep an eye on the speedo...very easy to seriously break the limits without feeling the speed you are doing.

Sound advice stevie. And congrats on the purchase James. Did you get it through Harvey @ benfield?

Top tip for you... Don't go back down the a1. Best to get the Tyne tunnel (try the exhaust sound out) and get the a19. Less boring road, less pork and you'll join the a1 after the 50mph roadworks with average speed cameras

no mate, i bought it privately...(sort of)

lottery winner bought it for her fella, its not turned a wheel in a year and only has 3k on the clock!

its been a right old saga, on/off/on/off for the last few weeks,

once a greedy dealer was removed from the equation, we seem to have sorted it!

If you actually cruise then you could make it on one tank but I'd hazard a guess that you might need a pit stop nearer 240 miles after some heavy right foot action when you first get it!

Remember v-power only
