Sunning myself on Arnside Promenade

Hi all, ahh first things first time for a quick intro, i'm Hotel MCF (something to do with a plate attached to me), i'm a 23 year old MK2 Golf GTI 16V and I live just outside the Lake District in a little village not too far from Kendal. Enough about me for the time being.

On to my little excursion, as you would expect as it's a sunny day I wanted to get out and explore, next thing I know i'm happily tootling along under Arnside Knott, I saw a fellow German car, a real pretty little thing a Porsche 911, quite a bit younger than me I might add, her owner acknowledged us, I felt quite proud. Anyway i'm rambling, we headed towards the Promenade, we stopped my owners asked if I'd like a picture and here I am and that's my day, tomorrow looks like I may be having PAS fluid leak looked at, woo hoo.
