Hi,
I've been on the main oc forum for a bit and wondered where all the scottish folk were! Ive found you! I'm not scottish myself but have lived in edinburgh for 10 years now, so like home.
Anyways, hi to all, especially to the other MK1 BRG's ive seen round edinburgh, any on here? Only had one wave :( I'll keep waving tho :D

Have a good monday!

A8000 redundant now the new spur is open, unless you want to go to Kirkliston.

Least your enjoying the car no matter what.

Next you should try having the roof down at night, very different than at day time.

driving with the roof down in the rain. some how you dont get wet unless its pi**ing it down or you've stopped. honestly try it!

or going round a bend and giving it a bit of welly in the rain and feel the back end sliding out. tho this one wouldnt really be recommened by anyone else as its abit "dangerous". :P - but gives you that aww schitt feeling and if you didnt hit the kerb and everything is back to normal then you get that am brilliant feeling. infact maybe you should practice that one in a big empty car park so you get the feel for it.

somehow i sense comments about that...

Welcome and enjoy. just dont hit anything.... well try not too.... :wink:

I love driving at night with the top down, nice feeling :D

As for driving in the rain... i've got caught a couple of times! altho was ok over about 40mph, otherwise wet heed!

And yeah i really need to give it some welly in the rain, still a bit cautious at the mo. Need to get myself to an industrial estate or something, i'm sure once i know what it feels like i wont drive so much like an old grandad in the rain!

I've got an advanced driving type lesson in a couple of weeks (through knockhill), so looking forward to that :D

You'll have been, like many of us on here, the recipient of some awful funny looks then :D I was heading to Meiklour in torrential rain down the A90 a couple of months ago, roof down, tunes up and getting lots of pointing and laughing. I was fine apart from a slightly damp shoulder :roll:

Nothing like the roof down on a chilly spring evening, middle of nowhere, stars lighting up the sky :D Oh I'm coming over all funny... ahem!

That'll be a blast! 8) You'll be needing to put your name down on the list for next years track night too (not that there is anything concrete yet...)

there was a small talk of maybe arranging to go to knockhill as they have a skid control track which would be ideal. let us know when your going so we can all go and laugh, i mean er.... watch... with video cameras and cake and tea and biscuits.....mmm

i know the round about your talking about chunky monkey. tho not really tried it there. i'd say where but you never know whos watching this... :shock:

but once you get to know how the car drives in the wet and how to correct it when it goes "bottoms" up. shouldnt have any problems at all.

tho i am curious how old you are for the grandad comment?! or should it be granny?

Sorry, thought that might be a bit of a cheeky comment after i wrote it! And yeah it probs should be granny, altho a fair way off that!

I get to have a shot on the skid pan too, but dont think that's allowed in me own car, but still be good laugh :D reckon i'll keep the date i'm there a secret then! never been on the track before so would love that if it gets sorted!
