London Motor Show Meet

Recommended Posts

The motor show is on this year at ExCel in London's docklands.

I thought it would be a good chance for us to meet up and have a look round the motor show. Toyota will be there, so if you want to have a look round the current Rav or the Urban Cruiser without a salesman bothering you, this would be a good opportunity! :lol:

As I went two years ago, I've been sent a code to get 2 for 1 tickets up to a number of 8 (if we get more than 10 to come we get a discount of 15%). At the moment Mrs Duncyduncs (she wants to look at the Bentleys), myself and TOC 'A lister' Anchorman have confirmed our presence.

Having spoken to Anchorman we are both available on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th July. Now I realise that a weekday may not be ideal for you all, but it does have some advantages. It's cheaper (tickets will only be £5.30), will be quieter than a weekend and it'll be easier to get to by public transport (trust me, weekends can be a nightmare!). We'd obviously go for the date that most people can make. :)

I've got until the 30th June to book the tickets, so have a think about it, it'll be good to see you all :thumbsup:

Is it bed time yet?

I am booked to be off on the Monday and Tuesday but if Nightstalker can only go Wed I can try to change. If we can decide for sure then I'll see if I can swap.

'Evening!

I got some meguire's but not too much!!!

Last year I got DOT3 brake fluid because although it says in the book that it must be used, TGB don't sell it!

You will know where to meet at the show, just follow the sound of Toyota Sales reps being <the spuds of lurrrrvve>ed about run flat tyres and DMF's ;)

Cheers

PS Don't let me spoil the arrangements - I just can't promise with asking first.

I hate to say this but I'm struggling for the Wednesday too. If we can go on the Tuesday it would be easier.

Aaah, indeed. Unfortunately, it's Air France (well, CityJet) from DUB to London City and they are...... expensive! It's an interesting airport (LCY, that is) and it has a short runway and a steep approach - although not as steep as it used to be, when it first opened :fear::help: Not really suitable for Easyjet, they'd fall off the end into the river :boat:
