Just seen this Colin, I'm up that area now. If interested we could have a bacon butty and a cup of tea. Hopefully I'll have the X fixed by then.

Hi Colin

Look like a good place to stay and enjoy the scenery in that part of England.

Hope the rest of your trip is as good.

Sorry your a bit far north of me down in Hertfordshire, but you can always drop in for a cuppa if you head down this way.

Hi Colin.

Glad you had a good time up in the Lake District and maybe we should have some forum window stickers so we can see if an X Driver is a forum member, as the membership is definitely on the up.

I know of a local sign and print Company that does bits and may try having a chat with them.

I guess I better run it past PVR and Bmw as they are the founders of the forum and they clearly need to give their approval to such a step. However, if we can get agreement it would be cool to have the XDrivers logo on there as this would make me feel proud of being a forum member, as I think this forum is probably the best one I have belonged to.

Thats a good idea  , nothing to tacky or too big and  maybe all located on an agreed area of the window
A whole lot better than waving and flashing lights at every X you meet on the road ( like me  ) lol
