    After all the work to the front suspension I thought I'd be a good time to get the alignment checked. I paid a visit to Wheels in Motion his morning. Turns out it was out slightly and got the camber bolts installed too.

    "Herself" was not too impressed. Especially when I had to wait nearly a week for a few more seals to arrive.

    Just back from a little spin down to Sorrento(via Affalterbach, Austria, Florence,etc). The car performed well apart from the SRS light coming on in the last few days. I've had this same problem in the past so wasn't overly worried. I have the new connectors on order so will get it sorted as soon as they arrive.

    Great pics , the 73 hours driving for the trip is impressive (the 21mpg isn't :eek:) And good job with all the ongoing work pics , at least you have an all weather garage for the work .
