    Wow.....that is a very cool story bro- thanks for sharing and posting all those pics.

    So to cut to the chase....how dafuq did you manage to meet Mr Solberg himself and what was the holiday/time away all about? Did you like book a package holiday at a winter rally course or something

    Shame you haven't managed to bring any snow back with you :(

    Cheers bro.

    I got it as a reward for being one of the top 10 Fiat Salesmen in the country.

    They paid for everything, I didn't spend a penny.

    Just bumped into him basically, got on with him really well. Sol erg wasn't part of the package they booked for us, he just happened to be home whilst we were there and took a shine to us.

    Lol @ just bumping into someone with his talent.

    From what I know of Scandinavian people, they take very warmly to pure petrol heads - probaby because they take driving very seriously because it is literally matter of life of death if you don't respect the roads/conditions

    If I was that rich/famous I wouldn't be letting any random tracksuit wearing lad to see my private collection of motors in a remote plan/warehouse tbh! haha

    I also expect PLENTY of driving videos of you mucking about in the snow when it reaches the UK - just don't go behind the wheel of a focus :p

    Westy, I guess you do 100 miles commute for work?


    This weekend I'm off to a mate garage to look at wiring up his Golf and making some custom LED rear lights for a customers RX7.
    I also need to check out the faults on my motor as well.
    But its currently pissing it down, so no chance of me doing any thing out side.

    Not much planned this weekend, need to change the tyres on the wifes car, so going to do that hopefully, got a cracking price on some Uniroyal Rainsport 3s - £60 each fully fitted (205-55-16) apparently they are a really good tyre too going by the reviews I have read. Footy with the lad in the morning tomoz and then just chilling hopefully!!

    I assume you drove that today for your 100 mile commute?

    Football and drinking on the weekend as well?

    The 2s got amazing reviews for wet weather performance - so I can only assume the 3s will be just as good if not better.

    Does sound like a very good price - £240 for a full set! wow.....

    Yes the 2s did have awesome reviews, and the few that there are for 3 are just as good in the wet and the dry, she doesnt do many miles, so im hoping they will last a while too.

    Im actually looking forward to getting them fitted!! :)

    Even the fitter was surprised when I told him the price of them.

    Camskill have got them on their site.

    Boooooooo! I hate stuff like that. Why can't people ever be real men and handle stuff themselves rather than getting mates to come round. Get Scott involved, he likes stalking people. I'm sure he could find your dodgy mechanic in a compromising position soon enough and bribe him.
