After a whole winter thinking will it or won't it the battery finally gave up when I stopped outside a little farm to buy some eggs. Half a crank was all it would give and the alarm kept resetting (and going off when the door was opened).

Luckily it was suprisingly easy to bump start :)

Once home (probably less than a mile) it managed to start off the battery - rather odd but I took the opportunity to give it a damn good thrashing in the hope it would charge it up enough to take us to the pub for tea tonight - and to put the top back up before it rains!

I've never really thrashed it around B roads before as the misses shouts at me. It handles wonderfully without a hint of understeer.

Halfrauds want 100 quids!! for an own brand replacement battery so I ordered one off the internet so fingers crossed it keeps going for a couple more days.

Posty - the guy who brings the post.:)

WRT to thrashing it on the B roads, one of the best places for the gtv, great fun although have found understeer on tight corners/roundabouts and in the wet.
