    I will do mate, it'll be good to meet some new faces

    I'am from Bolton, so it's only an Hour or so away from all the good places to have a good drive out, like trying new Roads out, but i mainly go to Wales as got a few mates around that area, i head to Ponderosa Cafe, then venture out to the 'Evo Triangle', and surrounding Roads then finally Bala, the B4391.

    Wales is a mission for me, though I would like to try it sometime. I would probably want to make a weekend of it. Hartside is about an hours drive from me so just nice for a day out, incredible scenery - you can't beat the lakes for that! Yeah seriously mate give me a shout next time your up this way

    You'd certainly be impressed mate, i find it more open, so can drive 'quicker' But there's some of Wale's i'd like to try, the 'Horseshoe Pass' for example.

    Yes i will do bud, it'd be good, i'am thinking of going back up to Hartside when it's a tad warmer, so will give you a shout

    Always a good felling when a full service gets done.

    Looking at your previous 2 posts, just for info if you've been to the Ponderosa cafe you've already done the Horseshoe pass, as the Ponderosa is on it.

    It is, this will be its first Service in my ownership, so it's 3rd Service all in all.

    Interesting, i didn't realise tbh! Unless I'am thinking of a different road/route lol.

    EDIT: I was thinking of the Black Mountain Road, A4069 and that famous bend everyone harps on about lol.

    I thought as much mate, I like a spirited drive like the next man but up the Horseshoe if you make a mistake your looking at a couple of hundred metre drop in places, with no barrier to help you out lol.

    If your ever up that way again give us a shout, Im only 10 mile away.

    Service completed today, apart the the Pollen Filter, but will do that another time, so the current mileage at the time was 23033. First Service in my ownership, feels good lol.

    Have to say the 'Box does feel better, it's still woeful but it does feel better, so that's one plus point. Stuck 2.8L in.

    Next on the list is Discs and Pads all round.

    So yesterday whilst the Weather was truly superb, decided it was the right time to give the 'Burg a really good 'Detail' i hate that word but seems popular these days, anyway! started of with taking the Alloy's of and doing the usual, Iron-X'ed, De-Tar'ed, Shampooed and then Waxed, no pictures of any interest unfortunately, along with doing that i give the Arches, Suspension, Brembo's and any other undercarriage components a good scrub, again no pictures of any interest :/ With that done, set about giving the Bodywork a good seeing to, did the usual and went and got some pictures

    Warning Triangle by Michael Smith, on Flickr

    As you can see, the First Aid, Hi Viz Jacket and Warning Triangle, by all accounts, these should be included with the car when being PDi'ed or by the Dealers, anyways, finishes it off.

    Also went for a drive out with mate in his new to him Ford Focus Mk3 ST-3
