2005 Transit Connect SWB low roof 75ps engine remapped to 101 bhp.
Top of the range ALDI soundsystem......seriously it takes Ipods and good knows what else, comes with a remote control, detatchable face panel, cracking sound through JBL 5 1/2 inch component speakers......and change out of £20, YES TWENTY QUID.

I`m just having to make do till i can get a Ferrari F430 but the waiting list is too long.

I drive an Astra (2007) same as Jasons but pov spec and also a vito (2007).
Astra is rather nippy for a 1.9, the Vito is ok but i dont like the handbrake in the dash

Stunning!!! best work van i have seen

LWB 2005 sprinter, fully racked, roof rack with rear door ladder.

I sometimes use my 2003 210bhp 406 v6 coupe when i go quoting or little jobs

On nice summers day i have been even known to go to quote/ pir/ minor job with a back pack on while riding my 2008 Triumph sprint st 1050

I don't do any installs, as I'm not a sparky, so I get the choice of either:

A Vauxhall Corsa 1.7cdti SRI (125bhp) in girl racer red OR a Volvo C30 R-Design SE Sport 2.4 D5 (180bhp) in police car white

Both are leased and I can't wait for the Corsa to go back as I want a heavy duty 4x4 this time, particularly one that I can use as a battering ram :D

used to look after the electrics for night clubs and pubs for a previous employer. the company car was a 730 series bm. wow chucking yer **** into the back of a 64 grand motor was great, everyone all over the country thinks sparks are well loaded thanks to us rolling up in a brand new motor of that class. was a bit awkward getting the yt4 into the back though.
