Cheshire XC40 meet up

Post by pjm007 » Tue May 22, 2018 5:25 pm

Short notice I know, but at least a couple of us (with delivered cars) are going to meet up tomorrow evening to share info and generally chat about our new XC40s.

Location is http://foxandbarrel.co.uk which is on the A49 at Cotebrook just north of Tarporley, Cheshire. Time planned is 7:30pm.

Any board member who is within striking distance (with or without a delivered car) is welcome. Both cars we know will be there are FEs, so sorry but no Momentums or Inscriptions yet.
It was an XC40 FE D4 AWD Auto - Bursting Blue/Charcoal/20". On the road since March 9th. Sold on August 20th. It was Polestarred. :)

That's a shame, I would love to come but unfortunately it's just too far away for me at 167 miles ish.
Have a great time anyway.

Miles will ramp up quickly continuing on that pattern... there'll be a convoy to Scotland soon!

Whilst 'over the hills' from me I would have tried to make a visit to one of my clients and used time to get to the early evening meet.....(assuming I could prise the car away from Mrs S!). However, we're actually driving down to London for a couple of days, so someone on the M1 from Sheffield to London may see us :)

Looking forward to seeing some photo's of a collection of 40's ! - Maybe we need to think-up a collective noun?

How about a “Roar” as in the “Roaring Forties” winds...

Currently, due to short notice and perhaps a lack of delivered vehicles (!), it may be the “collection” tonight is only 2. A Roar of XC40s sounds good though.
