How did you know it was an automatic? Wheels? A quick glance inside?

My boyfriend told me :lol: - yes it is the wheels (apparently). We had an auto at the last Herts meet.

54 Titanium Grey leaving Amersham Tescos on Saturday afternoon... Stopped to let me across the zebra with wifey and little'un in tow... Possibly overheard me pointing out his '8 and noticing he was in the club ;)

Edit: Actually it was a 54 plate, not 04...

Saw 2 (one red one black) in J&J car park today.
The red one had a spookily similar number plate to mine (only the last letter was different...)
I sold the RX-8, I got a Volvo.

What's wrong with me?! :-(

I met California Style today! I was at Milcars Mazda and just after I finished a deal on an MX-5, he approached and introduced himself. We chatted for a few minutes before we went our separate ways.

Nice to meet you!
Anyone going faster than me? Reckless. Anyone slower? Stupid.

Hehe, an unmissable car and very nice!

Good luck with the MX5 as well, i test drove one to take advantage of the sun and it was very nice....

Got a new set of alloys on warranty, a new cat, new starter and plugs and also they painted my wheel hubs to tidy them up, which was nice, so all in all my car LOOKS spanking again...

However Dyno next week will tell me more about what my engine is saying..

Milcars claim that the diagnostics show all is OK.... I am still a little unsure if thats true tho....
