Evening all,
I will be away as of 3am Saturday morning as that's when I start my 470ish mile trip to Scotland.

As i was in the office at 7am this morning and then working up London and didn't get home till 10:30pm and it's now 11.40 I think I best try and get a couple hours sleep.

I will still be popping in via my iPhone and the Tapatalk app so you won't miss me to much :)

I might get my AC re-gassed when I'm up there as a man I know only charges £40 and he did my R75-LWB last year and my old R75 the year before that, cost double that down here to get a proper AC guy to do it.

It's an app for various smartphones (Nokia Blacberry iPhone IIRC) that enhances how the website works on the mobile device.

Now, is there one for windows mobile? Must have a look.

Last night in sunny Scotland, we've had really great weather for the 2 weeks we have been up here :)

I think my OBD is up to 1400ish miles now, I'll update the details when I get back home.
