I will consider recent Range Rovers, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche and several other Japanese 4x4s so long as thier recent with low mileage! I'm open to suggestions but I would sooner you propose something very recent and in good condition so as not at need to negociate the extra money you will need to find.

I think I saw it going up either the M5 or the M6. Did you spot an all grey Vipermax going the opposite way?

yep sure did ........I wondered if it was someone from here ....were you driving a shogun or similar...i think it might have been M5 but going from lyme regis to scotland i covered a few motorways ...actually it was the best run i've ever had ...not one holdup and nice weather and motorways not too busy.

Hightower ...henshaws call the colour ice blue ...just a recent colour they have brought in ...it was originally going to be Alpin blue but i saw a revenger in this colour and took to it...no turning back now.

still in awe of the verado

That was us, we'd picked it up from Liverpool Powerboats that morning. We also had a great run home, but an awful run up the day before with a bad smash on the M6 South bound which caused the North bound side to grind to a stop with a 5mile crawl due to bloody rubber-necking!.

Enjoy the boat, it looked good.

The new rig on its way down from Wolverhampton at the end of last year. 17mpg on a 200 mile journey was a bit wallet emptying!
