    Hehe... I only took it as a **** take ;)

    I have, however, been to Harrods more in the last 3 months than the entire rest of my life.

    Didn't help I was staying at a nearby hotel quite often and it was only a few minute walk.

    The pizzeria in there is the best I've found in the UK, by far... although I'm not so sure about the singing chef.

    Weirdly car crime doesn't seem to be a thing around Bedford.

    I guess drug dealers don't need to steal :p

    Ahhhh yes, I forgot... Bedordites don't know anything exists outside of Bedford, so why would they even think about those mobile seats that get in the way? :D

    TBH Bedford is no where near as bad as it used to be. In some places the house prices are rocketing as ex-Londoners move in (they skip over Luton obviously).

    There's a black NSX somewhere near me. I've seen it a couple of times whilst returning home. Driven by a youngish looking guy. About the only one I've seen in the flesh.

    Sharing some photos from Autosport International at the NEC last weekend.

    It was a good show and better than the Autosport I went to about four years ago - a lot more to look at.

    A lot of is not really my taste, I skipped a lot of the liberty walk stuff. But there were some diamonds in the rough.

    Of course like a moth to a flame, I was drawn to the TT:

    This was my favourite of the whole show:

    Saw this last week,some new Bentley out on test by the look of it Which is fairly common in Cheshire , any ideas as to what model it is?

    I was amused that they’d gone to such great expense (!) covering the badge with gaffer tape yet forgot about Bentley on the number plate. :D

    Looked very nice side on but only got a rear photo unfortunately.

    That's not a test mule, that's a pillock. Tbose things have been driving around Chelsea for ages already.

    Followed this to Newhaven last week I believe, must have been heading to the ferry back over the France, either that or just a coincidence, sounded lovely though.

    Number plate was DB 205 FG I believe

    Edit - Just googled, looks like I saw a different Martini stickered Porsche :D

    Even though the car has been released it might still be a test car. Often manufacturers will use cars to test model year updates, future changes, to review customer comments, etc.

    Think it was a mule tbh, it had numerous contraptions attached to the sides (which you can’t see in my epic quality photos) along with sensors of some kind stuck to the nearside and rear windows and both occupants were wearing what looked like boiler suits, not your average Bentley drivers attire.

    Something looks wrong with that NSX, the passenger compartment seems too high

    Aspect ratio of the photo is messed up.

    Petrol shortage here atm. Not sure what’s better, the people who block the entire road by using the other lanes to jump the queue, or those who are considerate enough not to do that, but instead choose to drive the wrong way down the road.
