Do excuse my celebrations....

After about FOUR MONTHS of trying to sell our old car we have finally sold it (to a nice girl from Wales)!!! Not a really big deal to you but it now means we can use the Maverick on a daily basis as the insurance can be transferred - yay! :) - not to mention I'm now in the bank managers good books too lol

And... for the first time this evening I tried the maverick in the garage, bearing in mind my old Volvo didnt fit and the focus doesnt have a lot of space around it, I wasn't counting on it fitting.... Well it did! :)

Can't wait to start using the mav on some regular trips, just in time for baby :)

Congrats, Arbs, on selling your corsa , just a bit suprised that a Taffy would buy it, ah well, at least you can now enjoy the "economy" of the Maverick :lol: :lol:

I'm waiting for you to do a full detail on it, BTW do you have any experience with DodoJuice polish??? :shrug:

To be fair the little corsa wasnt exactly 'green'! I know it wont be great but i'm just looking forward to using it a bit!

No direct experience of dodo but i know its quite widely praised. I get the feeling its a bit 'trendy' but i still want to try some :)

And just think, in a years time, we have to go through the whole process again, with the added fun factor of obtaining an MOT certificate :doh:

If I lived there, I'd probably be walking and riding the public transits system... :(
