This forum is a nice personal space for the UK owners - and we have the benefit of the many owners "general experience" from the Canada and USA links too.

Blimey, I've just finished saying cheerio on the RAV forum and then you pop up here!!!


Enjoy the Soul Paul. It isn't a RAV but it is a damn good car. I moved for the same reason. Couldn't justify £24k gathering dust now my job has changed.



Regards

Hey Anchorman! Small world! I thought when I'd been lurking on here I'd seen your name crop up! but then thought.......'Nah it can't be him'!!!!! Good to have you on board as you were a mine of information on the Rav4 site! Agree with all you say about the Rav4.........but for me it was just time for a change and I'm dead excited about picking up my Soul Echo! Only an hour to go and I'll have her!!!
Have agood weekend!

Paul.

You've gone all quiet Hoggydo, surely you aren't still driving
We had a drive to Cambridge for a wedding yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it, the drive somewhat more than the wedding

Good luck with the paint thickness test..... that was the one thing that i couldnt make happen when i had chipping problems.... let us know the results..... the paint is very thin on all cars nowadays.
