ANTLER HOMES PART EXCHANGE A WINNER Antler Homes at Bredhurst Gardens Wigmore Antler Homes has sold over 50% of the properties at Bredhurst Gardens in Wigmore and the appeal of a hassle free, part exchange purchase has proved to be exceptionally popular. Part exchange takes much of the stress out of buying a property because, effectively, Antler takes on the responsibility for selling your property and so the purchase of your new Antler home is not dependent on the sale of your existing property or a volatile chain.

Tim added: “Part exchange takes the worry out of buying and we recommend people who are interested in this call us and discuss their needs with our negotiators – it could be a lot simpler to move here than you think.” Wigmore is in a good location just four miles from Gillingham and there are fast trains to London (Cannon Street) from nearby Rainham and the Channel Tunnel trains stop at Ebbsfleet 18 miles away. Prices start from £399,950.

Tim Foreman, Sales and Marketing Director of Antler Homes says: “Part exchange is popular because it makes moving easier by giving buyers peace of mind that they can definitely buy the home they want in the time frame of their choosing.”

Please call 01732 849410 for more information about part exchange or to book an appointment to speak to an adviser.

There are eleven detached, four-bedroom properties in Bredhurst Gardens and construction is now up to the roof level with the work on target for completion from September onwards. There are five different architectural designs and this gives buyers an exciting choice of interior layouts; all these homes have a superb kitchen/breakfast room with granite worktops and fitted stainless steel appliances, spacious reception rooms and luxury bathrooms – one en suite to the master bedroom.

Don’t Get Into a Flap Over FlatPack Furniture! Help is on Hand! Hello, My name is Paul, I run a local business called ‘flat pack rescue’. Some people find it a chore, some just do not have the time, some are simply bamboozled by the instructions. Whatever your flat-pack furniture problem is, please allow me to save you from it! ‘flat pack rescue’ is here at last! Flat-Pack furniture... here's a little history lesson: During the early 1950’s, Swede Gillis Lundgren couldn’t fit a table into his car, so he broke off the legs to make it fit and he re-assembled it at home. This was his EUREKA moment. He took his idea of RTA (ready to assemble furniture) to his employers IKEA and the rest is history. Ikea now have around 280 stores worldwide. Some say, Ingvar Kamprad, Ikea’s owner, is richer than Bill Gates, must be doing ok then. Tip: Until recently if you wanted IKEA furniture a visit to the store was the only way to get it. But, if you like IKEA furniture, and many do, their furniture can now be ordered online. So, browse the website, order some furniture, get it delivered and contact ‘flat pack rescue’ for assembly. Thanks for reading. Look out for more ‘flat pack rescue’ ads in the future.

Please visit my website, www.flatpackrescue.co.uk or call me, Paul, for details on 07801814511.

DIVINE INVESTMENT PROPERTIES IN BISHOP’S FIELD Bishop’s Field, an Antler Homes development just to the south of Maidstone, is one of the area’s big property successes with investors and residential owners who want to buy a property that is close to the town’s the amenities and convenience, but this development is also uniquely peaceful and spacious. However, and just as importantly, there is also strong evidence to show that prices here are likely to go up in the coming years. Data from March 2010 Land Registry figures show that property prices in Kent have risen by 7.5% this year. The Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) UK has also recently stated that, based on its data, house prices in Britain are liable to rise by about 20 per cent by the end of 2013. Investors are finding that the apartments at Bishop’s Field are already commanding high rents because the Antler finish is so desirable. Tenants are prepared to pay a premium for apartments with shiny new kitchens, beautiful bathrooms, contemporary décor and parking spaces. Equally, young professionals and downsizers are beating a path to the development because they want to live in a stylish new home that is ready to move into and will not require valuable hours of maintenance and upkeep. Tim Foreman, sales and marketing director of Antler Homes Southern, explained: “Some people may be wondering what investment to make following the Budget last month, but property still offers an excellent return on investment. The rise in Capital Gains Tax (CGT) may be of concern, but you only attract CGT when you sell an investment or property and

21

make a profit over the £10,000 threshold. Over the last 20 years, new homes have consistently outperformed almost every other investment opportunity and it is still true to say that, generally, the longer an investor owns the property, the larger the profit.” Bishop’s Field sits just south of Maidstone centre yet within easy reach of the countryside. The town offers a wealth of amenities including an array of restaurants, bars and cafes, and a well equipped leisure centre. Shopping enthusiasts won’t be disappointed with the choice of outlets and independent retailers, not to mention major shopping arcades Fremlin Walk and the Lockmeadow Centre. The prices start from £134,950 for a 1 bedroom apartment and £164,950 for a 2 bedroom apartment. The show apartment is open from Friday to Monday and can be contacted on 01622 600110.

Impersonating Elvis by Polly Nelson This isn't a story about Elvis Presley. This is a story about Chuckie Walaach and me and Chuck's wife, Carol. Carol should have been my wife but sometimes things don't work out the way they should and so she became Chuck's wife instead. Carol got pregnant right after our senior year at Stimson High. It's true that Carol and I hadn't actually had a date since eighth grade but I would have married her anyway, even though I had plans for accounting school and I knew it couldn't really be my baby. Even in junior high I'd been too much of a gentleman for something like that to happen. But not Chuckie Walaach. Carol admitted it was Chuck's baby so he was the one got to marry her. That's pretty much Chuck Walaach in a nutshell. Unfortunate luck, I call it. During sophomore year the senior quarterback pulled a groin muscle coming over the console in Tamara Newsome's father's mustang and knocked himself out of four games. Chuck wound up getting the credit for the whole winning season. When it came time to cast for the year end Stimson High Musical, they needed a beefy type lead and because Petey Boyd Beasley had laryngitis, who do you suppose got the part over yours truly? Chuckie Walaach. Don't get me wrong, I have to admit that even then he had an unusual voice. Deep, sort of croony and slurred like he'd just had a mouthful of something the rest of us would never be lucky enough to taste. Chuck always got the babes, even Carol. I rest my case. Girls are the reason he got to be class president, too. Brawn for brains should have been his platform. Tight jeans and duck ass hair. But all that happened about twenty years ago. I'm a mature man, forgive and forget. Except. Because of Carol's indelicacy right out of high school, Chuck's father took him immediately into the family business and made him a junior executive. Meantime, I went off to college where I was doing fine until my father shredded his foot with the wheat combine and my mother took ill with a rare type of swine breeder's syndrome and I had to come home to help out. There's only one place off a farm in Stimson to work: the Walaach School Bus Body Manufacturing Plant. Now I don't want to come off like I'm some kind of a certified public accountant, because I'm not, but I do have a talent with numbers. Chuck knew about that from my days on the scoreboards at the Stimson High games, plus which I completed better than four community college classes. Walaach Bus moved me right in to head up their inventory department. The general public would be surprised at all that goes into making a school bus body. It's more than just kid-sized padded metal seats,

23

metaline yellow paint and oversized amber/red flashers, I can tell you. There's an engineering trick to opening that folded front door from the outside that - But this isn't about the inventory, design and construction of school bus bodies, either. It's about Chuck and his Elvis impersonation. I don't know, maybe it's because Chuck's been here longer than I have, but since he became company president, he doesn't seem to be all that interested in the bus body business anymore. In fact, for this last year I've practically been running the whole shebang for him. Partly that's because I'm better at it than he is but mostly it's because Chuckie Walaach thinks he can be Elvis. He's grown sideburns and instead of letting the gray come naturally, as I do, he's started dying all his hair black. It's disgusting. I'm not talking just about the puffed up pompadour or the cheap cheek hair. I'm talking about those little tufts that come out through the vee in his shirt front. Oh yes, Chuckie stopped wearing a tie to the office when his father stepped down out of the bus body business two years ago. If Chuck weren't in the driver's seat now, he'd never get away with the stuff he does. At this year's company picnic, Chuck came in a white and gold lame skin suit with three back-up singers and a full rhythm band. Myself, I think he was assisted by some spandex body support, too. The men who work the line cheered for him. Gave him a standing ovation, in fact, but what does that mean? They gotta work for the guy two hundred sixty-one and a half days of the year (less three weeks vacation if they've been here over five years). And Carol! Well, she came to that company function in a short flared skirt with some kind of net stuff swirling out the sides that didn't belong up on a stage above eye level, what with all that open strut-work underneath. She cheered him on, too. But of course she has to, she's gotta live with the guy a full three-hundred sixty-five days of the year, no planned vacation. And she's still a good looking woman. Not every woman over forty could wear a poodle skirt and that flip platinum hair with the class she does. She's got too much style for Chuckie Walaach and when she leaned down under the stage to ask if I'd like to crawl out and eat lunch at her private table, I could tell that she'd finally gotten bored with the shallow excuse for a man that Chuck really is. I also realized how much fulfillment she and I could bring into each other's aching, empty lives. This induced me to work out a plan. I already knew that come March, Chuck had paid the application fees to perform in an Elvis Look-Alike Contest. Chuckie Walaach is certainly not the only man in the world who thinks he could pass

for Elvis. Apparently a hundred and thirty-six other mousse haired fools think the same thing. This was to be a battle of the Elvis's. Elvis's? Whatever. So. Since I've accumulated over eighteen weeks of back vacation time in my years with the company, I asked for two of them at the time of the Elvis contest. I bought myself some temporary black dye and a snub nose Saturday Night Special like the ones Elvis favored towards the end and I booked a room at the Elvis Contest Hotel. I did not, however, give my real name, nor did I enrol myself in the contest proper. It was a good plan. Almost foolproof, I've got to say. Just picture the police putting out an all points bulletin on an Elvis assassin who looks like Elvis in a town with one hundred-thirty-seven Elvis's walking around. Who could give a description? I didn't even have to hide, I just walked into the Elvis Grand Ball Room, pulled my gun, shot my Elvis, dropped the gun and walked back out before any of those other Elvis's could swivel a hip. Then I immediately got on a plane back to Stimson, rinsed out my midnight-blue pomp and reported for work the next morning. And who was there? Chuckie Walaach, third runner up in the Battle of the Elvis Look-Alikes. I needn't have worried that someone would ask me how was my vacation in Kenosha; all eyes were glazed on Chuckie as per usual. He was full of news about this contest and the killing. Seems that the number two Elvis — the one who was killed — was wanted for serial murders in three entirely different states. The bullet which killed him just grazed lucky Chuckie and now Chuck is being treated like some kind of hero in the whole affair. Pictures in all the papers, national news coverage. Even people who should know better have started treating him like he had superstar status, especially Carol. She even had the nerve to ask me if I'd like to drive them back to the airport. Seems the Elvis Contest Hotel has gotten so much publicity, they've decided to give the hero and his adoring wife a week long vacation in their hearts-bouquet honeymoon suite.

Audi R8 Spyder. When Audi first launched the R8 in 2007, it rather took critics and consumers by surprise. Could a mass-market manufacturer, albeit one in the premium sector, really build a proper, desirable supercar? The answer, it turns out, is yes. A true supercar, the R8 gives the Porsche 911 a serious run for its money and shows that Audi's Vorsprung Durch Technik doesn't have to be restricted to its usual line-up of executive saloons. Now, three years later, there's also a convertible variant, the R8 Spyder. A stunning-looking car, the R8 Spyder is a real head-turner. It looks special, its sleek muscularity hinting at the power buried under the rear deck. There are a couple of changes from the coupe version: most obviously, the carbon fibre blades on the side have been dispensed with, but the aluminium space frame has also been strengthened and carbon fibre has been substituted for aluminium elements such as the doors and engine covers. The canvas folding roof, when in operation, is also an eye-catching feature. An intricate system that opens and closes at the touch of a button located on the central transmission tunnel, the roof folds and is swallowed up in a compartment behind the cabin. We never tired of watching the sections fold, petal-like, and disappear, especially as it only takes 19 seconds to open or close. And it can operate on the move, up to a speed of 31mph. The Spyder's interior is up to the usual high standards we've come to expect from Audi in recent years. So there are leather seats, a leather-trimmed fascia and carbon fibre inserts in the doors and centre console, and a superbly well-laid-out dashboard, with the usual high-quality switchgear. This would be more than acceptable if it weren't for the fact that this is a ÂŁ110,000 supercar: for that kind of money, we don't think it's unreasonable to expect something a bit special, something beyond the standards of a very good executive saloon. There is a lovely gated gearbox, but even that's not enough to raise standards to those of Aston Martin, for example. Unlike the coupe, the Spyder, has been launched with the 5.2-litre FSI V10 engine that is also used in the Lamborghini Gallardo, mounted behind the cabin (a V8 version will come to market later). It's a hugely impressive engine,

with stats to match: a peak output of 518bhp at 8,000rpm allows it to sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 4.1 seconds before heading off into the sunset at a top speed of 194mph. It's a huge amount of power, but it somehow manages to not be as intimidating as, say, a Ferrari or Lamborghini. The rear-biased, Quattro four-wheel-drive also means that none of that power is wasted, a rear differential also helping to provide excellent levels of grip and stability. And the sound it makes... Stow the hood away before turning the key and you get to hear it bark into life unmediated. Once you get underway, you only have to squeeze the throttle to hear it snarl and roar as the needle on the rev counter sweeps up to the red line. The downside to its infectious howl is that short of taking it for a spin on a track, or venturing over to the freedom of Germany's derestricted autobahns, you don't get to legally sustain that kind of acceleration - with its accompanying soundtrack - for very long before you hit the national speed limit. And having a valid driving licence is a distinct advantage if you have access to this kind of machine. But outright performance isn't the only weapon in the R8 Spyder's armoury. On the road, it handles brilliantly, its agility and balance inspiring enormous confidence and making it an utter joy to drive. The steering doesn't quite have the communication of a Porsche, but there's certainly enough feedback to ensure that the driver is aware of what's going on beneath the wheels.

Taking the top off a car invariably affects its torsion rigidity, and the R8 Spyder is no different: there is a reduction in chassis stiffness compared to the coupe, but the degree to which this happens is barely noticeable. There's still no perceptible body roll and the Spyder stays flat when cornering at speed. There's also no scuttle shake to speak of, which demonstrates just how successful the reinforcement of the chassis is. Possibly even better than the Spyder's handling is the quality of the ride. Audi products have been a bit hit or miss in this department in recent years, but the R8 is very definitely one of the company's hits. Fitted with magnetic dampers as standard, the Spyder has two settings, with the standard set-up perfectly judged for daily driving. Indeed, the ride is so compliant that owners need have no fear about using this car on a regular basis, even in town, even over speed humps. Most supercars don't like being reined in on urban roads, and often run the risk on grounding out on the dreaded sleeping policemen, but there are no such concerns with the R8 Spyder - all of which makes it arguably the easiest supercar to live with. So does the R8 Spyder allow Audi to hold its head high in the drop-top supercar market? Absolutely. Other supercars might best it in individual aspects, but as an overall package it certainly rates as highly as any comparably priced convertible. That's no mean achievement for a carmaker new to the segment. By Clive Denson
