    Hey guys :)
    I've not been around for a while because I've been busy doing courses and training for a new past time, its taking up quite a bit of time tbh and also takes up a fair bit of driving time and having 3 cars means I really don't get to drive them all :cry: so I've had to make a BIG decision to sell the Spec C (I've only done 1500 ish miles in 6 months) and my newly(ish) acquired Peugeot RCZ 156 GT and buy something that I can enjoy at the weekends that has a little bit of poke, is cheap to insure, costs 140 quid a year to tax, comes with 380mm Alcon front brakes :shock: and does over 40mpg on a run without any effort (its a petrol btw) and keep my Citroen diesel for those long trips to work and back.

    So she is going, my 2003 Spec C Limited, after more than 4 years of ownership and my last scoob (for now :wink: ) because no way in hell am I going to touch the new Subaru STI with that (old) 2.5ltr engine in with a barge pole :shock:
    So over the next few days ill get some pictures up and give her a good clean whilst the weather is good, I would just like her to go to a good enthusiasts home rather than some dodgy geezer :lol: so most of you should be ok :wink:

    I'll still get to the meets when I can (if im not on first aid weekends, working or camps which is what has been happening) as LADS is a great community to be a part of :D

    I know Mick :( but the only subaru that would interest me in the EU line up is the BRZ as that looks to be a cracking car :D but if im going to go for a coupe then ill go for one with lots of poke 8)

    Tony you without a scoob does not sound right…. out of interest what sort of a price would you be looking for it as I very much regret getting rid of my spec-c RA and I'm getting tempted to get another spec-c to run alongside the track car i'v nearly finished, PM me if you want

    Must admit it is the best sounding and fastest Peugeot I have ever driven, I'm sure you will love it and can I just say thank you again for your business.
