    I can see myself there. Especially as it's not too far away. Won't be in the 129 though as it's hibernating in warmer climes....

    Looks a really appealing way to spend a Saturday. I'll watch the weather and open negotiations with my wife. The chances of those two things working out well in Mid-November...

    Too far for me, but having bought my R129 from them 3 years ago, I can tell everyone, that it is worth a visit!

    Cool.. seems like I can tick a few faces off the MBO "Know your nerds" list :D

    I will be there provided something catastrophic doesn't occur with the wagon.. If I have the brakes renewed before then, I may take that.
