  1. Thanks for all your words of support! I’ve seen all sorts of success stories everywhere and it’s heartening to see so much support! This condition afflicts the young as well as me and if they can do it, I’m sure I can! Going to treat myself to a drive out in the R tomorrow as it’ll probably be a while before I feel up to it again! I’ll keep you in the loop as much as possible and once again, thanks for all your support![emoji123] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. UPDATE. Had a phone call today from the consultant’s secretary to come in - results. As I secretly suspected, I have leukaemia. I start my chemo next week so I’ll probably go through bouts of feeling poo but as leukaemia is a pussy cancer, [emoji23], I’m sure I can beat it! The main thing is the remission rate is good and it can’t spread into my other organs so have to go in feeling positive! Thanks for all the kind words and I’ll keep you updated as and when things happen.[emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  4. ......and yes - it’s a petrolhead’s heaven at that place! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Cheers mate! Taking it easier now as the last blood transfusion is starting to wear off and the breathlessness is creeping back in. Had a shower this morning and I was knackered so had to sit on the bed for a few minutes. Consoled myself with a run in the R this morning. The three units of blood (three units, not pints) I’m due to receive on Friday should help. I’m just living between transfusions at the mo but my results should be back soon so then the haematologist can decide what course of action to take. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Stick with what you’ve got I’d say. The gpf is new technology and I’d rather let someone else take the chance. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. If you buy one with the 19” wheels, personally, I’d say you need DCC (adaptive dampers) by default. It makes a big difference on our crummy UK roads. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Had a wobble yesterday. Tried cleaning the car - didn’t end well so I’ve sacked going back to work next week. Had a phone call yesterday evening - got to go back in next week for another blood transfusion - 3 units this time so that’ll be another 6 or 7 hours out of my life. It’s only been two weeks since this started but it’s getting me down already. Just want to be normal again. [emoji22] Might try and get out tomorrow again for a drive.

  9. The owner has asked me to share it. If you are on any groups, especially other VW groups, social media etc can you share away please? Thanks. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. None by the looks of it mate. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Stolen

    Stolen this morning in Banbury at 0330. Too close to home. The scum broke in for the keys.[emoji22] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. He tried going around the outside of me as I turned left off the roundabout. I wasn’t even racing him - I wanted to get ahead of the two trucks ahead as I knew where they were going and would’ve held me up - I didn’t even notice the AMG - was too focused on the trucks. He faded into the distance somewhat - I went through an S bend without issue - he was sideways and frantically wrestling with his steering wheel - I had to admit to chuckling!

  13. Had same a while ago. I’d relate the encounter I had with a C63 but no one would believe me........ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Casio digital for work, Armani when off duty. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Yes it’s a great place mate! It got busier later in the day - some guy rucked up in a Countach as well! This is the one thing I like about this place - you never know what’s going to turn up next - and it did feel great to give the car a blast! It sounds odd but it just felt great feeling normal for a bit - if that makes any sense. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  16. Thanks for all your kind words peeps! Managed to get out to Caffeine Machine and give the car a run yesterday - the transfusion has obviously done its thing! Even had a little play with an A35 on the way back - I was surprised - not at how good it was but how my R stayed with it. I dare say a 0-60 would see me beaten - I have a manual for starters - but I know those A35s can be pricey but don’t seem to have moved the game on very much - am I mistaken?

  19. At Caffeine Machine - someone’s been busy cleaning - the Lapiz is a poppin’! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. Looked at it out the window........again. Not moved for over a week now.[emoji22] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Near Stratford upon Avon mate. It really is a great place! https://caffeineandmachine.com/ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. If the PS4s are not directional, then you can rotate diagonally instead of just front to rear. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. They also have a Facebook page - and some exhibits you’d not normally find in a house! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  24. £5 entry which gets you a decent coffee. All sorts of bacon, sausage, egg rolls etc and some decent driving roads to get there - doesn’t get much better and you get the odd F40 and 911 GTs there too! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
