Congratulations once again!!

Cheers,

Suhail
And im sure he gave you the registeration number too.
He talks about cars that way.
When we discuss a certain car we may say "You know the blue and white Fiat..."
Karl would say " You know MRJ 9041..which was a factory Jonquil before it was painted a Sardine Brown, before it was painted a Desert Mist before it became Freeze Blue and Refrigerator White...." Just kidding Karl...what the..NO Im not kidding!!. You should be proud of this. Its a gift!!
