A sad(ish) Announcement
« on: March 31, 2010, 04:42:18 pm »
Well it is with a fairly heavy heart I can fill in why I haven't been on very active for the last week or so. I have now left Arnold Sharks Clark to further my career within the motor trade. As some of you may have noticed I had been lumbered with a Kia Rio as my company car, rather than an Abarth as I should have been in. This was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of everything I was having to deal with on a daily basis, the final straw being the problems with (and just after) my paternity leave. As a result I started applying to other garages around the Edinburgh area - one of which I had a real personal interest in joining. And it is that garage that I have ended up joining - so I am now an employee of Phoenix Hyundai/Mitsubishi (the Mitsubishi side caught my attention in the first instance given my own car - a MKII Mitsubishi GTO)!  ;D

I hope to still be around here and stay active to an extent. And at least now I can be a little more active in the Tuning Sections! I hope you guys will still welcome my presence here - despite my not having the same connection to the brand (at least until I can make enough to buy an A500C).

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Jamie - Glad you are happy with the car, it was a pleasure dealing with you. I was a little diappointed I wasn't able to hand over your car myself - hope that side of things went well! I saw the car on the transporter this week, as the same transport company delivers Mitsubishi's as well. And I am more than happy to set you up with a Lancer any time you want.....!

    Stevey - We are a Ralliart Dealer here - Got a Colt, Sportback and Evo X 300 SST sat on the site. Have to say the two Lancer's look  :devil:!!
