I can't figure out how to post pictures, not that I have any until the car arrives on Tuesday.
Insurance was reasonable with Lancaster at 113 quid fully comp, pleased with that.

I reduce photos to 800 x XXX pixels post with Full Editor ( below ) having browsed for them on my pc and preview them to make sure they look ok before submitting them. There are of course other ways to do it but that means keeping your photos in the cloud etc and I don't do that. Welcome from the NE.

Reduce pictures to 1200x1200 & 512kb to upload them using the "upload attachment" function below the reply box (in "full editor" mode, not "quick reply")

Much simpler and quicker to use a third party host such as photobucket, then you just copy the link into your post.

I think that this:

http://s143.photobucket.com/user/Sutol

Is the link to your photobucket account.

Depending on whether you're on a PC, iPad or phone will depend where you will see the links you need to post for each picture - but look for the [img] link.
