    Countdown thread for RossR

    Hopefully you will soon be collecting your new car, so in 8v tradition here is your very own countdown thread. A little tune to keep you focused. Enjoy. x

    Morning all.
    Well there were no iceberg incidents during the night and my car is currently off the coast of Scarborough. Expected into Port of Tyne at 3 this afternoon.

    It's only about 30 miles away from where I'm sat at the moment! Making good time too - could be a couple of hours early.

    Collection date is hopefully one month tomorrow

    So, to keep myself occupied, I've been trying to decide what music to test drive the B&O sound system with. Currently I'm thinking this: Muse: Unsustainable / Isolated System - YouTube or something from the same album. I've got a super high quality version on DVD (Lossless, full dynamic range, 24bit, 96KHz).

    i did find lots, but when I clicked download it downloaded a search engine and a place holder for all my music! I'm a novice at this download stuff, any advice? Sometimes technology just bypasses me!

    A few years ago I went to a music festival. The song that got the most universal approval was form any of the artists performing, but a recording they played between acts. Which song? Bohemian Rhapsody of course.

    Dealer was in touch today asking when I'd like the car ready for the detailer to pick it up and do their prep. So I should have a better idea of exact timings tomorrow :-) Hopefully it will be at the detailers on 31st so I can sneak a peek the day before delivery.

    Ah yes, I do remember, one of your sites for taking pics could have been slightly inappropriate! Lol. snowy backdrop much better. Be a nice Xmas present for you.

    If it's any conciliation, I won't be driving with the roof open either. Pano roof was beyond my budget.


    I promise to do my best with pics for you all. :-)
