    If you're asking which is receiving the check-up lol.... The GP is.

    Developed a rumbling from one of the wheels. I thought it was the drivers side. So checked the bolts last night and all seemed fine. So thought it could be something more serious.

    Decided to hire the truck (to be on the safe side). Never want to drive one of these things again. Bloody uncomfortable.

    Na I meant was the low loader in your possession or the car had it and you was on someone else's. How much was it to rent may I ask? The ring is something I would like to do to tick it off but would never drive there and back in the same car. I push my cars way too hard on track!

    So my new daily run about has turned up at home. I was not there to greet it sadly as I have to be in That London all day, but please find taxi related images taken by my lovely wife, currently nursing a broken foot, so excuse the somewhat rushed images!

    Oh. I got back from the ring a couple weeks back. I drove there and back - doubt I'll do that again. Got really uncomfortable.

    I didn't want to drive the car 100+ miles to Lohen. So hired the transporter. £90 for the day.

    You didn't want to drive a BMW Mini 100 miles so you hired a truck?!

    No... the car developed an issue and he didn't want to risk a potentially dangerous 100 mile drive so he hired a loader to be safe...

    Yes that was exactly it.....

    And I'm glad I did. I had intialini thought it might have been a drive shaft issue. Turns out one of the wheel bolts was a little loose. Which annoyed me because I was certain I checked all of them yesterday.

    Anyway.... Issue solved and mileage saved I guess. Had a few other things sorted too.

    Excellent. It is like driving one too I suspect.

    I have done 10 miles in it, so can't really make a judgement but it's soft, wafty, quiet and easy.

    Sounds good, nice drilled disks too (+10 bhp).

    Friend in the car club had his house broken into and had all three vehicles on the driveway stolen! :(

    BMW M4 - Now found but with the interior ripped out
    Cooper S - HV68 SYY
    Peugeot Partner van - CA11 ETL - Signwritten so probably painted over and wearing different plates...

    In Hampton.
