New here, also.
As some of you know, or may not know.... here at MI6 they issue the new vehicles to the Double 0 agents and any other high-profile agents. Once they are a little "shop worn", they are turned back in and "Q certified" (kind of like pre-owned certified) and then reissued to the underling agents such as myself. Of course, you can't just take them to the dealer for this....they'll blow their bloody heads off. Since we underlings do not hold a licence to kill...I can't just drive around indiscriminately blowing up people and buildings ....all artillery must be removed from the vehicle before reissue. This also is part of the "Q certification".
Anyway, I was supposed to be issued a nice, barely broken in Aston Martin when 007 turned it back in. But unfortunately it was rolled like seven times when Vesper Lynd was snatched and 007 chased after her.. This after I had told her to keep an eye on my car when she was assigned. When 007 returned, I asked M about my car...she said I could pick it up if I had a lorry and a bucket.
I was also supposed to be assigned James "Crash" Bond's next Aston.....
So....I'm still stuck with this old XJS. Code named: "Morris" (some of you may remember him from the old 9 lives commercials....Morris the cat, not Morris the car.
My "Bond" girl has this Code named: "The Volksbunny".
