Greetings from Scotland with their first car!

Hey folks! Got my first car - my little (big?) blue Ford C-Max 2014 Zetec with a 1.6L Duratorq-TDCi, (diesel) engine.

It's name is Mr Ford and he had a little over 56 kilo-miles on the clock at purchase.

Been in at the shop to get a new EGR valve (...after 3 weeks of ownership... and now it's getting a brake service as well as they're squeeky-squeeky!)

Hoping to have some fun here - I'm mostly into the driving techniques as I don't want to mod the car without good cause (especially when it's still under warranty! Insurance premium goes up too if I mod anything "critical") - and I think I've caught the hypermiling bug!

I'm a mad scientist/engineer as well, so I love statistics and monitoring - hoping to make the most of that side of the forums as well!

So, greetings and salutations, folks! Hope to hear more from you all soon!
