Your forum name
Your real name
The colour of your car
The registration number of your car
Your mobile phone number

(I need these so that I can keep track of people on the day and get hold of you if you are late or get lost.)

Please respond ASAP, thanks! :D
Actually, can I add that you confirm the number of people in your car? :oops:

Hi Spokey,

just replying unfortunatly I am still not sure as I took my golf in to VW main dealers to get a water leak (paddling pool in drivers footwell), as well as fog lights full of water and failed switches on the air conditioning, whilst they have being attending to these problems, they have managed to drive the car into a post! damaging the bumper, wing and bonnet, so they have it for repair.

As yet they haven't given me a date for compleation, and loan cars as small as Polo's just arn't that comfortable especially when you have my physic, honed to perfection after many hours spent in the pub.

Only 31 days to delivery of the 1 series, if I get the Golf back I will let you know for definate.

just In case the details that you reguested are:
EXgtiman, Nigel Varley, YG05OLM, Blue & 07707604368.
120d M-Sport in saphire black, sunroof, adaptive Xenon's, Mirror pack, Pro radio, popular wood, 19" alloys, performance short shift & pedals, othere bits & bats

Just a quick bump! I've only had clear confirmation from JoHNY and tminal, is anyone else definitely going to be there? If you are, could you please send me a PM? :wink:

Oh, the route has changed slightly ... people who have confirmed will get the updated details via PM. Unless I get a clear confirmation PM, you will not be sent the new details. :)
Ciao,
Spokey

Just a quick update, managed to break the polo loan car so I now have a jetta with dsg box, going in the morning to see what sort of a job that they have done repairing the Golf, as they rung to tell me its ready, I'll belive it when I see it.
not that I am keen to get the BMW but only 22 days remaining of VW ownership.

The current count is 35 visits to the main dealers with it in 3 years :evil:

Had a look at there so called repairs to the Golf this morning, it looked as if it had being assembled by a first day YTS studant, the pannel gaps were vaired to say the very least, from a sixteeth of an inch to in excess of half an inch, so its staying with them till they get it right.

That unfortunatly means that I will miss the northen romp :cry: but I will definatly be there for the next, or first show of the year where I hope to meet a few of you northern BMW owners.
