    What have you all got together? Who’s doing the work. Will be nice to see what power you end up with.

    I like the rotas and still think they are really nice wheels. But I'm just ready for a change I might keep one set of rotas. We'll see

    I might start mine sometime soon. It's been a while

    I need to decide what I'm doing with the 18' Hamann's as I need to either refurb the split rims or sell as is

    After that I need :
    2 new centre caps
    Refurb 1 alloy
    Interior light switch
    Offside door actuator
    Wire up the spots
    Replace the cracked screen
    Replace one knackered key fob

    & I'd like to add :
    Some side graphics
    Hella spots ??

    Then drive the thing somewhere nice up north

    Ah that'll probably be the F55 going south, aka the big torquey diesel

    Toying with cancelling the Electric and keeping the JCW, and then enhancing its power in October once the 3-year warranty runs out.

    I may be moving this year and not sure how far I'll be from the nearest airport. I want to be able to get to/from the airport on a single charge, which would be possible from Perth to Edinburgh. So I'll stick with petrol for a while longer and have some fun at the same time.

    I'm excited by the move towards electricity and the technology's only going to get better. That having been said, I don't think you'll be missing out by holding onto your petrol car for a little longer and making the switch in years to come. It also means you'll get a bit more enjoyment out your current beastie.
