It's been a couple of months of trouble free motoring in the Elise since my last blog. I've got into Twittering in the meantime (www.twitter.com/martingibbs)


Mileage now nearly up to 4,000, well and truly run in and nicely loosened up. Doing about 250 miles everytime before the fuel light comes on and then it takes about 35 litres to fill up, which is 32mpg.


We had a great day in the Peak District last weekend, blasting about on a Phil & Kirsty style property hunt. Had to keep the roof on though, but was pretty refined on the M1.


Yesterday was roof off all day, pottering around to parents. Today we went to a Christening near Dorridge. Roof off all day, sunshine and sunburn as well. One of those days you buy an Elise for.


I sent off the paperwork on Friday, so very soon I will have my private plate on the Elise.


Biggest problem at the moment is stone chips. Masses of them on the sills and chin. Driving me nuts. The paint just seems to fall off if the car so much as sees a bit of grit. Never had this problem with a car before. Getting good with touch up paint though.
