Which asdas that? It's a great idea. I've nowhere to work on my car and van. Would they twist if you dropped the gearbox for a clutch?


It's Boldon man. I'm Sarf of the river these days. I bet you could work all day in the quiet parts of the car park(s) of Cineworld/Asda at Boldon. I can't see them being arsed as long as you're not bothering anyone. I go there to change wheels and do bits and bobs but obvs never had a car fully apart. And I usually do a bit shopping when I'm finished so I'm technically a customer.

Official Mini tit-splitter pad. For the man with sensitive moobs.

No idea why these things are so popular. As far as I can tell their main function is to jam the seatbelt retraction slot so the seatbelt won't retract.

Since the wheel swap, the passenger front wheel was been losing a couple of psi a day. I popped round to Prestige German Cars for a puncture repair.

20190222_125300.jpg

They diagnosed it not having a puncture at all, reseated the tyre on the rim and wouldn't take any money for the bother either. Just sent me on my way.

That really cheered me up and restored a bit of faith in humanity.

It's the little things.

Im prepared to admit I had a set of those on my first car (Bogo standard Subaru Justy) and thought they looked great at the time. I can't even blame it on the previous owner as it was 100% my doing *much shame*

No, but you can fill the craters with distilled water and grow space monkeys.

Brilliant. Drop off some cakes/biscuits to say thanks and you'll be their new favourite customer. Always good to have that in the bank for the next time you're in.
