Hello from Cheltenham

Hi all, have spent the last two evenings reading the forums and surveys, it's amazing how time flies. Have traded in an 04 laguna and and an 06 clio for a 57 2.2 diesel sport with 22000 on the clock. Exchange is Sunday...very excited!

Laguna rattled like a tin can but after 106000 miles it has served me well, hoping the civic will do likewise~!

Anyone else in Cheltenham, didn't seem to be, lookign at the map.

I've done about 2200 miles so far. It will only do around 20,000 before I change it again!

Thanks all for the very warm welcome (particularly wheely...the first link was at least very useful, especially as i haven't seen the car yet!).

The colour is galaxy grey, the choice was either that or black. We decided on the sport as didn't fancy the panoramic roof of es or the 'complicatedness' and extra cost of ex. Sport seemed to fit nicely.

I'll def post pics when i get it,...

Welcome dude... I am in Gloucester. There are a couple of Cheltenham types I know of on here but not seen them around much... but then I seem to have gone rather quiet in recent months too!
