    Well yesterday was a blast. 4 seasons packed into a few hours. The roads and scenery were excellent. Felt like I really got a feel of how the coupe handles. Its a lot more on its toes that the hatch.

    Massive thank you to Ali, Laura and Arwen for allowing me to squat for the night and to chloe and kody for allowing me to use their sofa.

    Thanks for organising the run Ali, some really great roads in that area, enjoyed the ones before lunch much more though

    Shame I had to head off early, but wasn't happy driving the car with that noise coming from the back. Jacked it up and had a look under it when I got home and couldn't see anything obviously wrong so will get it booked in with Douglas and see if he can spot anything.

    Only makes a noise on rougher roads, absolutely fine for most of the main road / motorway on the way home.

    Shame you had to head home Andrew but it was the wise choice.

    It was I'm sure Douglas will get on top of things but it might be worth checking the rear shocks Andrew. I burst one a year or two ago on the HBT and it led to a rattle/ knocking sound at the rear, particularly when going over speed bumps at an angle. I'd originally thought the noise was the rear ARB bushes wearing but it turned out to be the shock absorber.
