    Default Greetings from Nth QLD

    howdy all,

    well I took the plunge and lashed out on an ex demo MPS luxury hatch, picked her up on Friday. I have to say that not driving a manual for about 10 yrs I have only stalled it twice!

    I think I might be the only Townsville member as there are only 4 MPS here, or so I have been told.

    Pics to come soon and I have a truckload of questions!

    Welcome mate. I know there are a few members up north. Not sure about Townsville though.

    Hope your enjoying the new MPS.

    Hey There!

    Welcome aboard... we've got a good crew in Cairns so we'll be sure to catch up at some point.

    Some of us are coming down in June so be sure to check the FNQ threads.

    If you're super keen: we're doing a drive up here in May; A good way to familiarize yourself with that 6-speed 'box!

    Hear that TSVMPS? Col is under the mistaken impression that we're dreaming!!!

    I chose Red because once I saw it I was hooked (as I'm sure you were by that somethingorother Blue colour Col )........personal preference and all that.......and what a name.......

    VELOCITY RED!!!! - it just sounds fast
