Just realised the twelve month anniversary of i30N Fastback ownership passed a week ago.

That's practically keeper territory for me.

We've been reopening quite a lot of stuff this week so car dealerships are back in action with social distancing in place, Facebook knows about this so is bombarding me with car advertisements.

425bhp M4?

Hopefully going back to normal in the not too distant future.

Tell you what though, my MPG has gone through the roof, turns out that going everywhere at 40mph in 5th gear is really fuel efficient.

Not as fuel efficient as going everywhere at 0mph.

My normal mileage is around 1,200 miles per month, and I have to fill up the Yaris' tank about once a week.

Nearly two months on one tank so far and I've still got about a quarter of it left.

I put in £25 in mid-March. Lasted until last week. I then filled up so should be good until September now.

I have been taking Sal to work and picking her up every day, so I’m probably driving more regularly than before, but not doing any medium or long trips at all.

Filled up the RAV4 yesterday, first time in ages and cost us £46 rather than the usual mid 70s!

Yeah, I normally use half a tank a week. Entered lockdown around march 23rd (work started sending people home before mandatory) with about half a tank (modern VAG senders are colossal liars) and I filled it up on Saturday without even getting into the red.

Insurance renewal coming up, I'm planning on removing commuting use and declaring 2000 miles; a confused quote got LV out at £175! I'm with them already, £290 the year.

All the fearmongering about tax hikes this year, mine has come in at just over £13/mo, up from just under £13/mo.

Finally got the driver’s seat back into the Celica, after buying two other sets of second hand rails off eBay that didn’t fit.

Bought some proper Bride rails from Japan, and they fit perfectly - as one would hope for the bloody money paid for them.

Just gotta charge the battery now and hopefully it’ll still all be alright!

Custom manifold for the Essex-mgb. The original was a bit bulky to fit between the chassis rails, block and steering column

That looks purdy.

I had a lovely drive this afternoon, the superb really comes alive when everything is put in sport and manual and then you hold the traction control button down for 5 seconds.

It's due an oil service, I really need to accidentally get Startin Skoda to put the ECU and TCU remaps on while they're at it, now they're Racing Line resellers.
