Phil that should be fine I just wanted approx numbers so we didn't end up at the pub with 40 people wanting food and no advanced warning.

Me neither. I'm trusting it's a 'wander' ...or even a 'blast' ....but if it becomes a 'rally' :shock: I don't do off-road in the 924 :lol:

All on public roads, and with only 7 cars should be able to stay in convoy

I have got route instructions but just follow me

the 14 people include my best guess and probally 2 children that I know of, 1 is mine

The MoT is first thing on Friday morning so fingers crossed!

And.... it passed! :woohoo:

...but only just. It actually failed on CO emissions (5.5% vs. 4.5% maximum limit), which is unusual as it's never been a problem in the past. Anyway, the tester said that if he had time at the end before the next booking we could tweak the mixture and try and get it through as a re-test. Luckily, the next booking was late so he hooked up the gas tester ready to tweak - but straight away saw a value of 4.498% and quickly printed it out to get the pass. That's about as fine a margin as it gets!

So see you in the morning. Probably won't stay for the evening meal though.

Great news. :nod:
It needs a run to clear those emissions. But you already know that ;-)
