I used to find green flag the cheapest however I've since discovered that adding euro driving to your existing cover is the cheapest daft as it sounds :!:

how come when you go to Europe the distance is converted to km. Is it automatic.? :D

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

must have got things the wrong way arround when I got home we did 2565 miles in total fuel cost about £280 + 1 ltr of oil ( I think I might stay in Andorra fuel cost €1.05/ ltr)
not bad for a 15 year old
