Gorgeous! Well for once you didn't beat us with the weather, warm and sunny here in the Midlands too - 20 degrees in places - but sadly no off-roading for me.

The Disco's looking good mate, but see you were followed up that track by a townie in a large Mercedes? affraid

Well, I suppose we can't all have taste. Razz

Depends on what you use it for, and how you use it, we our happy with the one we have.
Have to say that yes the price is quite high now, we payed less than that 2 years ago.

Not saying you did anythink wrong, first mistake i made was trying to use house coal smooked us and next door out, so tryed wood that was a lot better, going to be doing Convoy for Heroes in april going to try smokless fuel see how that goes and my friend is briging along a Dutch oven.
Will report back after. cheers clinking teacups

Dont knock the Merc very few cars can beat it for its mile eating ability and level of comfort.

I might have a little bias towards them as I have had one for 2 years and apart from dragging it's rear across the grass like a tired old dog I can't for one knock it's comfort, performance and fuel consumption (well diesel anyway) 35 to 40 on a run and around 30 to 35 around town.

Not bad for a panzer with the turret removed
