I think it was a female driver, but that could be your GP's other half I guess...Glenn - I think that might belong to my GP, there is a red R172 in the surgery car park. He also drives a lovely Aston Martin Lagonda in racing green.
I saw my first moving 172 in Morrisons in Guiseley just near there on Monday. It slowly crept around the corner of an aisle in the car park an crawled past me at walking pace. It does look very nice, probably helped by being so shiny and bright white compared to the usual old dirty Focuses and Passatts in the car park!
