    Hi everyone!!

    I'm Kitty (real name Steff but everyone calls me Kitty nowadays!) I'm 27 and live in Crewe, though I'm originally from Stoke. I also work in Winsford at a bodyshop :)

    I've been the proud owner of my Mk2 Leon for just over a week now due to the unfortunate demise of my Mk2 Ibiza (RIP) known as 'Smokey' The Leon is now called 'Queen Smokey II' :cartman: (I'm sad i know!)

    Anyway, Looking forward to getting to know you lot :)

    Kitty x

    Welcome! I live in Sandbach :)

    Which body shop is it? I know there is one on the way to Winsford from Middlewich called "Winsford Body Shop".

    Helloooo!!

    I work at KC Autos, on the Industrial Estate just around the corner from there :)

    Love the pic of your Leon. Funnily enough, I was after the exact same car as yours before I got my Leon. I was after a Crono Yellow one but the one I was really drawn to sold the day before I was due to look at it (In Nantwich) and I went to look at another one in Lichfield which was a right nail!

    I then checked Autotrader again and found my QSII in Warrington so happy happy happy :) xx

    :wave:

    KC is far better than 'Generic Body Shop'

    Had my beeza recovered there after an unfortunate incident with a hedge and a fence, 3-4 years back :lol:

    Ah never been down there, always drive through that junction though. Do they just do general stuff, or extra things like wrapping etc? Just handy to know that's all :)

    Mr Dave...... Was that a Black Ibiza we pulled out of a ditch for you?? :)

    And yeah, Insurance work only really, we do other stuff but its mainly insurance.

    And Griffo.... unfortunately it depends on which tech you get working on your car. ;) I will say though, When I get my Leon's paintwork done I'll be just as fussy as you probably were!

    Haha, quite funny - been there a while then!? (nice memory btw)

    Insurance wrote it off (glad to be honest, it needed a new side - would never have been the same!) - I was doing less miles and bought the Leon in my avatar pic. Still got that now but it rarely comes out because of the beamer :)

    Haha - it's possible you have - I've had a 206 XSi, then an Ibiza FR TDi, followed by the Leon, which I kept whilst I bought a mk5 Ibiza Cupra - now still got the Leon but hav a BM.

    Have probably seen your car about tbh :)

    More than likely then - although it's not all that often I'm awake before around 9:30 - but do have a day or two a week in London so get the train from Crewe.
