Er apologies - the B5 is in the bad books - she's failed the MOT on rear brake discs & pads which are have been on order for a while now but seemingly not going to arrive from Germany until Monday and then the tester has found a couple of very badly corroded brake pipes at the rear end too, so its now sat on the ramps with the fuel tank off as we get that sorted - I am unable to attend on Sunday as planned.

Apologies and hope to catch up with you at some point !!

I'm coming from the south, been cleaning my wheels today (Alpina owners curse) then filled up the tank ready for tomorrow and admired how dirty the damn wheels got after a 3 mile drive!!

Saw a bloody gritter today! And mines filthy just having been to the petrol station.

Easy either way. I will be going to Sheffield afterwards so Northbound wouldn't be the end of the world for me…..

Nice to meet some new faces and cars. Back down in the tropics of Birmingham now :wink: look forward to seeing everyone in the new year in better weather. Thanks Hap for suggesting the meet, made for a nice Sunday morning blast out.

Nanook of the North here back in the igloo.
Nice to meet the people behind the posts, as Hap said good company and cars! Mine came pre dirty as it was foul on the way down. Spent some time with my son this afternoon in Sheffield who helped me spend some of his inheritance!

Best

Not the best weather for a meet I have to agree but it was a good way to spend a few hours on a Sunday morning. Made to pay for it afterwards going round Meadowhall, the price to pay I suppose :lol: Nice to see you guys and hopefully will catch up with you again in 2017. Happy Christmas!!
