    I will bring the Pork Pies, Deviled eggs, Ham, Cheese and I can bring Vegy Meat for those who like it.

    Or we could go to a nice food place nearby I fancy Piemaster - yes I am joking

    Hmm, unfortunately the previous owner of mine either cleaned it with a sweeping brush or visited the £5 hand car wash weekly. I've spent months getting the paintwork looking better. But I dread to think what it'd look like under the detailing lamps.

    Trub is I think lunch break is about an hour. So eg going to Dave's Bistro for an all day bfast might be a push.. plus, I'll fall asleep afterwards. Wonder if that stone baked pizza place in Stoke deliver.

    I can't do 21st or 24th or 25th September. I'd prefer it not to be a Tue, Wed or Thur. And I can't sit next to anyone who's names Tarquin, wearing a bowtie or the colour orange.

    So to kick off the bidding... what about 28th, 29th or 30th September? That's assuming they do Sundays.

    I am good with all three of those days and I think Tarquin is on the Audi site not the Seat one :)

    I've emailed them with the list of everything we put and asked for dates and what the plan on the day is.

    See what we get back.

    I'll bring a pry bar. Maybe we can "rock" it off. Have you tried spraying the mount points with wd40 btw?

    I did but maybe not enough lol I am using quite alot of force but in the end it's only plastic so part of me doesn't want to screw it up lol

    I'm looking forward to see who's engine is louder on start up lol

    They do take a lot of force to pull off. Rather than use brute force, I meant pick one of the 4 mounts and wiggle it side to side. What your trying to do is work a rubber donut up and over one of these:

    Well, I park next to a stock Cupra at work. So I'm feeling confident :D

    Won’t be me as my Cupra is Stock. So likely I’ll be last.
