To be fair, they're only shit because they're broken, but the MX-5 works just fine (write about cars, have MX-5; it's a tradition, or an old charter, or something) and has just passed his 19th MOT. I think I've had three of them (two NAs and one NB).

 

I did once own a Xedos 9, which was shit only in regards to the fact it had been crashed and optimistically repaired by an 'enthusiast' who very much adhered to the "out of sight, out of mind" principle. The others... eh, when they're moving again they might get threads.

Evening all. Been lurking a while and finally decided to sign up.

 

Current fleet is a rusty old Daimler XJ40, slightly less crusty CX and, for when I actually want to get where I'm going, a disastra van I got for free.

 

Not been driving too long but had my fair share of shite, highlights being an E46 318i, E39 520i and an mx5 but my real love is old Jaaaags

 

Looking forward to getting to meet you all!

Hi all,

 

Spent a good amount of time reading through the forum but never really posted.

 

Driving a 1987 Bluebird LX with about 24,000 miles on the clock at the minute, building up a rank 1989 Civic GL hatch into something nice, and I have a 2000 Mb6 Civic that was sat for about 15 years after an accident in 2004 - I just got it running again yesterday.

 

My only prior car was a burgundy Volvo 360 GLE, and I started on bikes with a 2002 Peugeot Vivacity ( :oops:) at 16 before having a CG125 of some vintage and a 1990 DT125R that never worked properly.

Good morning all. Come to find this wonderful forum from watching hubnut videos.

Currently own an audi a5 and bmw z4 so nothing too terrible although picked up this magnificent bmw 320d yesterday which has AS written all over it. 11 previous owners and smells of wet dog, lovely.

From sunny Bolton in Lancashire, I much enjoy reading your threads and especially the ongoing project ones, reet friendly forum and a credit to you guys keep it up!

Hello all

 

Newbie shitter here :-)

 

I don't currently drive anything that maybe qualifies currently as autoshite (KIA Picanto 2 automatic from 2017) but it's definitely future shite & with all the brand snobbery about many average motorists will possibly regard a KIA as shite anyway :mrgreen: .

 

Previous car was a 1998 K11 Micra 1.3 CVT, now sadly departed. I've had a Metro, Capri ,Renault 5 & a Ford Anglia in the past.

 

Blame Hubnut & his video's for me being here.

 

Cheers & happy Easter.

 

Dave

Hello

 

New member here. A long history of shite, mainly out of necessity rather than choice to be honest, but now I have come to prefer shite as long as it goes. I have just acquired a £300 Peugeot 406 hdi estate. I hope that qualifies me.

 

If that doesn't quite cut the mustard, since I passed my test in the 80's I have owned amongst other things a Marina, Avenger, various Talbot's including a Samba and an Alpine. A couple of Sierras, a Fiat 126, a clapped out Honda Civic hondamatic circa 70's, a Volvo 340, mk1 fiesta and many more. Some of them have been an unmitigated disaster but others have been marvelous bargains including the Avenger which cost me £50 and lasted me nearly 3 years. Up to a couple of days ago I had an Almera Tino which kindly deposited all of its oil on the road and I fell out of love with it.

 

Despite my long history Im a hopeless mechanic so I will no doubt be visiting these boards regularly for advice.

Welcome along Wizwag, of course a £300 406 qualifies you as a bona fide “Shiter”.
There’s plenty of knowledge on here as well as a liberal sprinkling of piss taking. Be sure to keep us updated of your French related car shenanigans.

Quick update. The 406 is indeed shite. The clutch bites VERY high on its travel which doesn't bode well. There's a mysterious knocking. A clunk when I reverse.. A wobble when I put my foot on the throttle but not when going steadily. Other than that I really like it. Handles great and plenty of torque (its the 110hp). Don't really want to spend any serious dosh on it so lets see how long it lasts.
