Cars & Coffee, 6th Feb 2011 11 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 328
Taken from the Octane site.

The second Cars & Coffee of 2011, Cherrywood Business and Tech. Park, will take place on Sunday morning, Feb 6th, meeting anytime from 10.30am onwards.
Take exit 16 from the M50, and follow the road to the complex, park up in the large car park opposite the Spar store on the immediate right upon entering the gate.
This venue so far has proven to be a great success, it is quiet on a Sunday morning, with minimal public traffic, and we have the permission and blessing of both the site security, and store owner.
Take care on the approach road to the complex, it is a three lane road, and very easy to break the limit(60km/h) but often policed with speed traps.
Steve


Come on guys, lets get a good gang along for this one, all three marques perhaps!!

I have an NCT (Previa)on Saturday and NCT (MR2) Sunday at 11-50 in Mullingar, so not so sure on making this one, and if I do it would be for 5 minutes in the morning.

They normally start around 10-30 I believe can anybody confirm that.

Yes between 10.30 and 11am, I'd turn up a 9am on saturday for the previa for the nct and see if they take it in early and then tell them you have your mr2 booked in for sunday and could they take that in aswell if you fly back and get it after the previa is done, They did that for me when i was getting mine and the wifes car in the same weekend, If you can get there just before their lunch is due on saturday with the mr2 you'll probably find they'll fly through it

Just going to the NCT now, talked to them yesterday and they said they should fit it in early. Thanks for the heads up Dave KC'd, then head straight to my first C & C .

Weather looks like it will hold out.

Nice catching up with you lads.

Got home and a couple of hours later I got a call about the car, bit of an enthusiast. He had one before and was in the original club, knew Andy. His old one was the same blue with a Toms kit, so when he saw mine it reminded him of it, plus he liked that it was an mr2.ie owner. He came and went and is coming back tomorrow with a deposit. Loved the car and really appreciated it which is just what I wanted.

Hopefully he'll be on MR2.ie and at a few meets

Cheers Spidey and Ray. Sad day for sure but I will try get him to sign up, he was part of the original club, so can't see that he wouldn't want to.

BTW, got another 2 calls since. Makes me wonder, I waited out for months and months and dropped the price and all of a sudden I get loads of interest! Maybe dropped too much.....ah well... found a suitable replacement:

Wow - cool motor If it weren't for the tax, I'd get myself a 7 series !! I'd say the car has nearly every gadget/toy available

I say "nearly" because we all know it doesn't have a winky-switch

Well done Swagger! The 7 is awesome. Just needs tinting, lowering and some gangster rap booming out of it.

Shiteballs...went to see the car today, turns out....get this....one of the staff dropped the price as "a joke"...it is actually 8K. Assholes huh? I didn't find it particularly funny after driving all the way up to see it. Still not a bad price at all for a car that was approx 130K new, but more than I have to spend at this time unfortunately.

What do you all think of this:
