    Thames Valley Announcement

    Hi all.

    As some of you will know I've recently replaced my Dax with a new toy (a BMW Z4, boo, hiss!), with no plans to re-enter the world of Cobra ownership. In addition, our normal venue (The...

    As Simon said, unfortunately The Swan is closed and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Although the normal date would indeed be the 20th, in view of uncertainty over what the "Rule of Six"...

    Unless there's been a recent change, seats do not have to be adjustable - but if the seat has runners, the mechanism must work correctly.

    No problem Rob - have fun! ;)

    Guys - if I find The Swan is closed when I get there I'll head for The New Inn at Heckfield. It's about five miles south of Three Mile Cross straight down the B3349.

    My Dax has just driven off for its new home in Cardiff, so I'll be in need of some Z4 recuperative therapy! I'll aim to be at The Swan for 12:15.

    However, I've just checked their Facebook page and...

    Well spotted Dek.

    Only 35 minutes to go - though The Auction does operate an "anti-snipe" policy so it may well be extended a few times if the bidding goes bonkers in the last few minutes.

    Thanks for the kind offer, but I won't need to take you up on it as my Dax is now sold.

    Road tax is £330 Simon, and I suspect the 3.0i will prove to be the preferred model.

    I spotted this eBay listing the other day, which is now shown on their website as sold - see here.

    He manages to squeeze himself into a Westfield fitted with a full roll cage at present Kevin, so I think it's primarily a height rather than a width issue! ;)
