Hi TT lovers
My names Rich and in November I had the chance to purchase a merlin purple TT.
I can't remember a time feeling so happy as when I drove Marlena (I've already named her) home on the A406.
Putting my foot down gave a whistle as the turbo gulped in air pushing me gently back in my seat as the 225 horses were unleashed.
Pure unadulterated pleasure coursed through my senses mixed with a little fear. It had been a long time since I'd driven something so quick and reactive making me chuckle like a kid, it was love and all I wanted to do was look after her and fix any problems she had and she had a few.
Bing bong went the oil pressure light, Mario the guy selling it, told me that the sensor was broken, I knew he was lying and I fixed the light by getting underneath the car and getting my hands dirty just a week ago. Boy that was tough but oh so satisfying, next job is to mend the washer bottle and then the dash shall be quiet, hopefully until the next challenge rears its head.

Thanks for the welcome guys, I've left grubby hand marks so I'm gonna' polish her up with Maguires polishing compound and restorer.
Should I wash her first with washing up liquid?
Thanks again and I look toward to meeting you all next year.
