    @Skizzer has a Lotus, has no room for a Princess.
    @Shite Ron wants a Lotus.
    Skizz sells Lotus to Ron, has space for Princess.

    1973 Ital!  Considering I've had Marinas from 1975-6... I think not!  What else does he not know, that he should?

    Those look like a child's drawing of the new Discovery I reckon.    (Without the stupid wonky rear number plate.)

    Can't find it now but I saw a video once about using citric acid to flush the coolant system.

    It was being done on a similar age mercedes, maybe a 190d.

    The citric acid powder is actually available from mercedes for this procedure but you can also buy it on ebay.

    I think the citric acid does a good job on rust and shite (I use it for derusting steel parts) but is mild enough not to melt holes in alloy bits.

    After one of the ushers got stuck in traffic, I got roped in taking the bridesmaids for my sister's wedding. Naturally only the best and most reliable vehicle was appropriate for the job...

    My friend Steve who's wedding it was taught me sharing cars is even more fun than just having them so if it is out while you are here I would be pleased to take you out in it.
    I had to jump start my E-Type once from my Visa at a Citroen show, that made them laugh at me!

    @SiC Just my twopenneth...
    I had a 1982 520i and for various reasons (impending mortgage, looming bills - clutch and welding etc) I got rid of it. And 20 years on, it's one of only 2 or 3 cars I really wish I'd kept. And that includes a 1275GT.
    Horses for courses and all that, but the Mini was a real laugh and all that but it was also capable of rusting-while-you-wait, and having to take the bonnet off for any routine maintainence became a ballache, as opposed to the headache if I'd left it on. I WAS determined to run it on a budget, time and moneywise as I had a lot of things going on, but it exhausted my time, wallet and enthusiasm pretty quickly. Made a "Wheeler Dealers" type profit when I sold it (ie not accounting for my time). Would I have another? Yes, with the proviso that I'd be able to afford a decent one, it would have to be a 2nd or 3rd car, and I'd be able to afford to pay someone else to take care of it.
    The Beemer.... I bought it out of "Loot" for £not much and spent NOTHING on it in the 18 months I had it. It had faults, yeah, but nothing too horrendous, all filed in the "ignore drawer".  The MoT waqs looming and it had some grot that I couldn't be arsed to fix, and an earthing problem which meant the OSR lamp cluster was like a disco light when I put the indicators on. Looking back, I could have fixed it, but at the time life was in the way.
    FAT BLOKE RECCOMENDS: Fix 520i, blat about, GR8 4 DRIFTIN, then decide. Prices are going up, so I don't see how you'd lose.
    And have a go in a Mini before you commit OBVS, they're noisy, uncomfortable, bouncy....but a good one is 10feet of grin.
    TL:DR fix Bimmer then drive a Mini
