Just bought a V6 3.0 !!
Well, spurred on by the T.S v V6 thread, I looked at an ISA and saw that maybe at the end of the year we may be able to have a McDonalds with the interest, so the Looking started.
I recall having fun on that thread and placing the pic of a cement mixer to represent the V6.
Well, yesterday, I got the train from here in Suffolk to beautiful Dorset to buy the V6.
Had plenty done on it (like we all do anyway), one or two issues that need to be addressed, but well documented on this forum, an offer, a haggle and it was mine.
So, Insurance in place,(it's taxed till sep) the test was to get the cement mixer home, and on the way, see how well the mixing barrel spun!
Unfortunately,(apologies to all you PC brigade and correctivists) but at times, I did get to the ton, which isn't wise as although my 11 points are now down to 8, probably would have involved a ban, but These cars have Satan under the bonnet, and he appears to have a strong influence and they are a thoroughly enjoyable driving experience.
So, up the A27, M3, onto M25, M11 and A14..Thoroughly enjoyed the drive and the car didn't miss a beat, and I was amazed at the way I drove it, how well it performed on fuel!
Aesthetic wise, it's minging as it has stood outside for a few months, but that will be corrected today by the Rumanians up the road.
I now firmly believe I have the right and perfect mix....The TS spider and the GTV V6.
