Delivered my son (with all his clobber) to university in the Chim this week. Gave him a bit of an 'arrival' amongst the dreaming spires. Several comments (from other parents) about getting all a teenager's stuff in a sports car. But then we know, don't we, that Chims are surprisingly practical (must remember to keep telling the wife...)

Very nice!

I was up that way on Saturday - a great weekend for it.

Nice wheels by the way. What size are they?

Hi Ow, they are 16 front & 17 rear, which means you can put some decent tyres on there, which makes a big difference to the handling. yes
