I see the ones on Ebay are Mk10s but the website lists Mk11s, what's the difference? I'm tempted but there're only orange ones left & I already look like a lifeboat

So I phoned donegaldan and he bought 'em both two minutes later. I've not been stuck for a Gecko since....

ahh... Donegaldan...pass on my best when you see him next.
is he complicit in your plan to acquire (allegedly ) a Redbay from
the contents of their spares bins?
