Morning chaps,

A little while ago I strolled across from the 240 forum to ask some questions about V50s with a mind to getting one in the future. Well, I'm close to having the means to make the move now and, whilst the V50 still ticks my boxes, I realised I haven't actually driven one yet. I'm pretty sure I know what to expect but if anyone in the Portsmouth area is on this forum and doesn't mind me using their car for a very short time one evening in the next few weeks I'd be really grateful if you could drop me a PM.

Obviously I'm not going to thrash it (I drive a 240) and I'd expect the owner to come along as well. I'm fully insured, willing to compensate you for your time in beer/haribos and basically just after a quick five minutes around a car park to double check that going back to a FWD car wouldn't irritate me to death.
