The best thing is all of your add-on's, well most of them (we don't need heated seats here) are included in the OTR cost here. Can't wait - it's only been a month since the deposit was paid and it's taking an eternity!!!!

Once a pom always a pom, its in your blood

I am in London by choice, 9 yrs now, but could sell up our property and come back anytime, but it's not that bad over here for a stint, wouldn't be a lifer thats for sure, only so long I can go without feeling the warmth of the sun, hence the reason my wife optioned the heated seats, she is from the sunshine coast and still 9 years on in the UK she struggles with the winter, hell her hands go blue in summer here

Cost of things are pretty much equivalent in ways but I still find electricals /computers, bikes etc I can source here cheaper than I can back home, also the cars I have had here have been much more expensive if I had happen to buy in Aus, but what you gain in one area you lose out in another........wont even go into the bloody exchange rate, the amount I am sending back now on a monthly basis for our property there has gone up big time!

The 1M we will bring back with us no doubt.........as for your wait, that's all part of the enjoyment
