Did you make it into work yesterday at all @theoneandonlymrk ?? :)
No ,i nearly didn't go today either but being too cold isn't an excuse my boss would take.
He was fine with my impromptu holiday yesterday though since he Was one of those who tried to go work but hit a bus stop on route, see i was being wise, not lazy.

I'd have an interesting afternoon, it's coming down rather heavily at the moment so I hope it'll be clear for when I have to drive to pick up my daughter tomorrow evening and that my ex can get there as well otherwise it'll be another few weeks till I can actually get to see her.. Hopefully we can get snowed in on Saturday and Sunday and maybe for a long time after so my daughter can stay with me for a while lol :) I like to live and dream :)

How's the weather up there?? :)

That's a nice cupra r Leon you got there Phil.
Thank you mate :) I've had it now 7 years :) Bought it when my daughter Isabelle was due (just found the first petrol receipt I had filling it up... That's bad!! 21/01/2012 day I picked it up :) ) Used to have a Golf GTI Mk5 that I gave to my ex as she was driving a rather poorly Clio so she had the Golf and I had the Cupra :) It's the 225 bhp model, I think when I had it I had it on the rollers to see what it makes when I took it for a complete service when I had it :)

Serving me well, just the lacquer that has been falling off for a few years.. Damn yellow lol :)

I got a friend who recently purchased a highly modified one outputting 290bhp in yellow aswell, drinks fuel like its nothing so i've been told lol. There are barely any Mk5s Golf GTI and mk1 leons these days now.
All either been scrapped or low mileage stored away or turned into track car and binned.
I got my MPS in for oil change next tuesday, still need get clutch&flywheel somepoint.
Very light snow up here and DPD Hinckley being c*cks once again not sending out my parcel yet, it went down to cornwall depot and now back in Hinckley.

Snow is coming down hard here.
We had about 5 inches over night :) Looked beautiful this morning until I had to make my way into work lol Damn lol

Mines standard bar a cat back exhaust for the moment, but mine seems to be rather good with fuel, on a run the trip reckons I can get up to 40mpg, I normally get about 3 to 4mpg different to what it tells me but otherwise it's been a lovely car :) It's not what I really hope to end up with as I'd love something AWD, would make trips in the snow much nicer lol :)

Those MPS's are rather quick from memory :) Upgrades on the clutch and fly wheel or just replacements? I'm still wondering if I should ever do anything to Seat... It's having too much power through the front wheels thing that's a problem for me lol One of the cars that the garage I take mine too, has a 600bhp model in there.. Still front wheel drive as well I think... Surprise it actually moves off at all lol

Any ideas when the parcel is due?? :)

I get about 26mpg with my commute and the MPS are quick on a roll as they are torque limited in 1st and 2nd gear but once you change to 3rd gear its a bullet. The clutch just needs a replacement soon,its now done 87k miles and probably hasn't been replaced since brand new.

I just went to the depot hoping I could just take it but its mixed with load of other parcels so its impossible for them to just give it to me on the spot..they said they will get it out tomorrow, we will see about that.
High powered FWD just like other cars..just feather it lol.

That's not bad, I think they are stock about 265bhp or so? :) I don't believe my clutch has been changed either, just crept over the 101k miles on a 55 reg, it's doing well :)

Such a shame with the parcel, hopefully you'll have it tomorrow :D

We had a fair bit over night too but its all melted into sleet now and its currently sleeting as we speak.
I hope it's melted here now, I've got a 160 mile trip to make hopefully later to pickup my little girl!! :) How is it in London now? :)

Road is generally wet, the sleet (from the sky) has turned into snow again but most of the sleet/snow on the ground has gone or melted away AFAIK

Better bring a tent, some drinks and food while you're at it aswell. Start camping on the motorway.
The car is 260bhp standard, tune brought it up to 290bhp which doesn't sound a lot but these car are very sensitive to torque due to weak rods. They can do 350bhp comfortably i've heard but i'm happy with 290bhp as its usable power.

Well after 5 phone calls to DPD, rubbish help from Square-Enix EU customer service, a visit to the depot and additional £23(7p per min just to ring DPD customer service) added to my phone bill the KH3 Collectors edition has finally been delivered today(04/02/19), almost a whole week of mishaps it finally arrived. Safe to say I won't be ordering anything from SE for awhile and I pray nothing I order from Scan/Overclockers or other UK vendors goes through Hinckley depot.

Anyone got a delid kit i could borrow?

Well after 5 phone calls to DPD, rubbish help from Square-Enix EU customer service, a visit to the depot and additional £23(7p per min just to ring DPD customer service) added to my phone bill the KH3 Collectors edition has finally been delivered today(04/02/19), almost a whole week of mishaps it finally arrived. Safe to say I won't be ordering anything from SE for awhile and I pray nothing I order from Scan/Overclockers or other UK vendors goes through Hinckley depot.
Thats a shame, I normally find DPD to be the better courier compared to a lot of the competition. Parcelforce and Yodel tend to be some of the worst ive encountered. Both of them will never turn up for a collection that has been booked well in advance then they will deliver to a house with the same number but wrong road about half a street or block away, leaving you to send a load of emails to their customer service while you wait and hope whoever got handed your parcel has the decency to deliver it to you because you have no idea where it is. sometimes the couriers wont make a delivery at all. you can track them on the map, and they'll be parked up around the street but they wont make the delivery.

I paid £400 on a custom set of wheels for my bike and the wheel builder had it delivered by parcelforce. It went missing for two weeks because the driver handed it to someone around the corner and this person just had it sitting there for two weeks till they checked the address and found out it wasnt theirs so dropped it off to me. They had totally opened the box of course... I mean a box that big? who wouldnt?? If it was some hi-fi equipment or a gaming console im sure they wouldnt of considered walking around and handing it to me.

Benchmark Scores It's not to bad.. More importantly, it works!!
Road is generally wet, the sleet (from the sky) has turned into snow again but most of the sleet/snow on the ground has gone or melted away AFAIK
It wasn't so bad driving, even with the snow.. I just miss my AWD lol :)

Better bring a tent, some drinks and food while you're at it aswell. Start camping on the motorway.
The car is 260bhp standard, tune brought it up to 290bhp which doesn't sound a lot but these car are very sensitive to torque due to weak rods. They can do 350bhp comfortably i've heard but i'm happy with 290bhp as its usable power.
From the yester year that seems to be Friday, the roads where fine. Got up there and back without any issues, even had the ex waiting for me to pick Isabelle up.. Was indeed shocked!! Always feel that 300bhp in a decent car is more than enough, anymore and I thought it was a bit to laggy or not really needed otherwise.. All depending/dependant on what and how you drive of course but... :) Happy medium :)

just Started to snow again here on south Coast
Still got pleanty of snow on the ground for it to settle on
Roads are slushy.
@phill pack a big thermos, blankets, and a Shovel.Hope you get to your girl and get her home

ps hope there's 6ft of Snow afterwards so you cannot take her back and so get more time with her:)
Oh that would have been lovely (not so sure about the tent on the motorway mind.... lol) but it was lovely seeing her again just wish we had more time together.. It just flies past when I do get to see her... Sadly no snow since Friday really.. Bummer.... :(

DPD are generally good for me aswell, its just when it goes to Hinckley depot which is meant to be their largest depot in the country..everything seems to go a lot slower and mistakes are bound to happen which unfortunately i got the receiving end of it.

@phill 300bhp is definitely enough for a road car use..but the itch for more will always take over.
