    Small world. Top end or bottom end?

    My car is currently at grinspeed. When it's back and weather is dry, I can take you for a spin in it.

    Haha! Indeed it is. Top end. Thank you man. That’s very nice of you.

    My car has been SORN for a few months as I drive my diesel Golf to work. I got fed up of of putting wasteful miles on the EP3.

    I don’t think I’ve seen your car around. What are you having done at Grinspeed?

    Not used him yet, but my son is picking up a freshly imported DC5 in the next few weeks and is going to use Stevie and we have just bought an EP3 Track Car that's going to want a FD and plated LSD so we will use him for that too.
