    As an early birthday present and to cheer me up, I thought I'd buy myself a new toy:

    For those who care about such things, it's a Subaru Forester XTn with a UK spec STi tweaked engine which apparantly makes it good for 0-60 in 5.3s (according to Top Gear).

    Yes, it has sat nav, before you ask.

    Does that mean you got rid of the Beamer?

    That is a nice looking vehicle. One that I couldn't have here if I wanted to retain my liscense but nice all the same. :D

    Yeah, the BMW was going wrong all the bloody time so I'm part ex-ing the b'stard. That's actually the motivation, but you know... Cars are good and this one blends affordable, practical and performance.
