Well, much fun as the Mazda MX-5 was, its limited practiallity finally got the better of me, hence I went out and chopped it in for this, a BMW 330d Tourer.

Its the SE spec, with the sports trim smile 184bhp std - will be soon chipped wink to approx 215bhp. Std 0-60 comes up in 7.6 secs and it pulls like a train in every gear, and still returned 52mpg on a spirited trip back from Wolverhampton with it smile

Well, I hope this one is for keeps smile

The Mazda, despite being a fantastic hoot, just wasnt practical enough, it was also pretty thirsty, mainly because you just couldnt help driving it like a loon sorry

The BMW is faster, more economical, has more seats and a boot.

I will miss the Mazda, and despite their reputation, if the Nissan wasnt my play car, there would deffo be an MX-5 on the drive!!!

Guy comes round to the house to do it smile

Hes doing Chris's Seat, and Andys Berlingo at the same time which helps keep the cost down as he is coming from Coventry and all the cars will be in the same place for the remapping smile

Right, it got it remap on Tuesday, and the difference is amazing.

The throttle is more responsive, and there is a lot more go in the car now - the traction control light flickers in 2nd gear in the dry now wink
