    Had a nice leisurely Bristol - Swansea - Bristol drive this afternoon. Sun shining, ACC on and a nice leisurely 70mph trip down the M4.

    On the way home just after Port Talbot where the M4 goes from two lanes to three found myself doing a leisurely 70 in middle lane, lorry up ahead in inside lane and a BMW Z4 in outside lane but making no more progress than I was. With that some van moved from behind me into inside lane clearly with a view to undercutting me.

    Gave the accelerator a little push, and within a few seconds he was a blip and looking at my speedometer decided to take foot off throttle, never tire of that feeling of power it's crazy how you don't feel the speed or hear the engine work which would normally naturally make you glance at your speed.

    Yes, decent turn of speed Andrew for sure, better again with the remap.

    We all know we shouldn't get into these situations, but with so many drivers around doing god knows what and unsure if they will / won't etc, it's good to have that little bit of power to get you out and clear

    Have you got any sounds on a USB drive for the car yet?

    Yes 8gb usb stick primed, and a few cds stored on hard disc. Youngest watching Mr Bean on the screen with independent sound through headphones - can’t fault it.

    Looks like a good day today weather wise so may attack the corrosion on sunroof rails, only slight snag is it’s the wife’s birthday....
