Anything more complicated/fiddly than unbolting, replacing, re-bolting is mind melting to me.

see, and there is me thinking that the reason we all like shite cars is because we can all fix them...... :lol:

WTF is 'german look'? Listening to the fuggin skorpions while combing your mullet?.

LOL at that Mini story:

The owner was introduced to the band,had a conversation with John Lennon who led him to the autoshop

In reality, this happened: 'Scuse me, I couldnt help but notice that this is the Beetle Club? Yeh Ive been looking for a small car to buy, and I really wanted to try out the car youre advertising, seems a cool choice at the moment' Sadly they were out of stock it seems, pretty nice Mini though.

Drums can be tricky because they take a certain nack and it's easy to forget and get out of pratice. Once you get use to 'em they're a piece of pish and are more reliable than a rear disc/caliper set-up.

I thought that Mk2 Astra was a "Capita" special edition.... you'd buy that and then have the urge to take over a call centre and balls it up, laying off most of the experienced staff to be replaced by agency workers before running it so far into the ground the original owners take you to court to get control back.[ /personal gripe ]

This looks somewhat down-at-heel for a 240.

I am curious to see what this ends at, as it's already over £100, yet only has a month's test, need a fair bit for the test (a set of tyres for a start) is a lower spec model and is generally tatty. If it goes over £200 mine would easily be worth that, and it's what I paid for it, with a full test so it's great zero depreciation motoring!
