Re: Roads they been a changin'

Re: Bristol newbie

Hi Cloggie from yet another Bristol IAM-er :roll:

FWIW I'm also with Gareth in the use of an auto box, which is how I drive my partner's GTi having a DSG box. Drives her potty (in both senses) :D

Hello, and congratulations on your recent successes. (Your post brought back some memories of my being taught to drive in my Dad's Hillman Minx)!
