Today I had to shift a colleagues 400bhp+ BMW 330 round the block. Fuck a duck! I'm used to fast cars but that's on a completely different level. Terrifying!

Gosh, this is lovely. I can upload and download at the same time! That'll make the next magazine a bit easier. Next Invacar video uploading as I type. It seems to be taking 10 minutes (while downloading from I-Player at the same time) instead of about four hours.

Oh & today's grin is insurance!

 

Last years policy on both bikes was £370ish, so I've moved to a rougher area with worse crime stats. Same bikes, same use, same rider, still in a garage & it's now £260. I'm happy with that. No points or anything removed, still on full NCD etc. Oh & that's the renewal offer, so it's not even worth ringing round really.

Yup. We were on 2.5mbps down and 0.25 up. Worse, uploading anything crashed out the connection and made it unusable. This is so, so nice!

 

Should make our i-Player viewing a bit better too.

Something similar happened to me a few months ago, my benefactor being a retired teacher and former neighbour. We used to walk our dogs together 40 years ago. "Something" has been left to me and my sister. What or how much, and when it will appear, is anybody's guess. In short: don't hold your breath, and don't order any new Jags. Yet.

My family were left £650k by a family friend. My share bought the villa in Florida

Unfortunately I've been on the flip side of this where a great aunt, my grandad's sister, left £25k to family, split amongst us all and about £475k to her hairdresser. Not bitter about that at all!

A very good friend's grandmother died and left an estate of around half a million, including £5k for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

GDFTB disputed this, got the lawyers involved and it dragged ion for several years.

His eventual share was about £1500, only the lawyers did well.

 

I'll never forget his rant at the GDFTB charity mugger who accosted us a year or so ago, the bloke was shitting himself.

Nearly got us chucked out of the pub.


It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

Wandering back with the shop with three bottles of Henry Westons for a fiver, an Espace II came past me.

Or rather it hooned past me, foot to the floor. I never realised they did a V6 one of those but it seems so, with the PRV motor. Sounded lovely!

Went to the WRC round in Catalunya last year, it was fantastic. The cars are back to looking quick again which has to be A Good Thing.

Well yes I agree but it just makes it boring and predictable, a bit like when Mickey Shoemaker and Ferrari just kept winning F1.
Then the Dave channel bought the rights to show WRC for some stupid reason and the program went to shit. You didn’t get to see nearly as much stage action after that.

I won't disagree with you on it having been boring and predictable for many years-I stopped following it for about 10 years. I can't say I'm a big fan of Loeb either TBH.
 
I watched the Red Bull coverage of last season which isn't perfect but is watchable. 2017 saw a good close run championship (for a while at least)  with cars that looked and sounded more like a rally car should-80bhp more than 2016 I think from memory with more aero too. 380bhp in a Yaris/Fiesta is something to behold up close, believe me!
 
I'll be off to Catalunya in October again, it worked out cheaper than it would've been to go to Wales for Rally GB and was a damn site warmer!
