That sedan is pretty flash. GLT? Can't remember, sorry, but are you somewhere like Oz since that will answer the question for me.

Yea in New Zealand. Over here the high spec sedans were GLEs and high spec hatchbacks were GLTs. We got GL, GLS, GLE & GLT. GL & GLS were either sedan or hatch. We never got 340s or 3 doors. I haven't seen the sedan yet, so a bit excited. Will be picking it up january. Till then i have:
2x broken 960s
1x broken 850R
1x broken 360GLT
1x broken subaru lancaster
To keep me busy 😂

I would like to say mine's in a better condition.... but the only panel that doesn't have a small ding or scuff is the roof 😂 no massive dent's though so that's a plus. A mate and i are doing a full fluid service on it next week. The only thing we aren't doing is the brake fluid as we wont have the time and they work well anyway.

Can I ask a question about the southern hemisphere. So our autumn is their spring and our winter is their summer, etc, but, e.g. for the latter, do they call it summer or winter? I'm guessing Summer, so crimbo is in the middle of summer, right ;-?

Hi Lads.
Still here but my health problems are heeping up
so don't get here as often as i would like.Will try a little harder.
Still driving the 360 as a daily. My mk1 345 is still alive but getting work done.
Have missed you all this past while but the bake book screen is much brighter
as i now have cataracks in both of my eyes :( :( .
Hope everyone is well and staying safe
Cheers Mark.

Just logged in after so long. My 360 is long gone and none exist down under anymore. Wish I kept it more reliable than the c70 that replaced it and more character than the s60 I’m driving!

Hello, I went over to cubeupload which is OK and doesn't resize images but then I had a look at my old photobucket account again and it seemed pretty good, so might start using that more. I heard that imgbb is good, but a look at the website just now shows its a bit short on info. Anyhow, I uploaded a cat:

easily enough and it didn't cost owt!
