  1. This anecdote from @Datsuncog is too good to be buried in a thread about batteries:
  2. I collected my new car. I love it. It's great fun. Surprisingly perky. I was worried it'd feel slow, but it doesn't at all. The pedals appear to be designed for the feet of a Barbie doll but it's otherwise comfortable. Massive boot, and 50mpg on the hundred mile trip home. It's only my second car ever with a tape player, so I bought an old stereo and made a couple of mix tapes for the trip down there in Junkman's Citroen CX and my trip home - well... the tape player in the CX doesn't work at all, and the one in the 106 warbles so much anyone singing sounds like they're about to burst into tears. Time to revisit the lost art of belt replacement!
  3. Yeah, for some reason it never occurred to me to check to see if it was caught by the Streetview car.
  4. I found photos of the CUBE It was there for at least a year.
  5. are you sure? it comes with this
  6. Do these have a mechanical fuel pump or one of those clicky SU jobs? In either case replace it with a Huco 133010 and don’t think about fuel vaporisation ever again.

  8. Sir, the glass is rusty https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125858090718
  9. Oh no Hope it's easily fixed. The only problems I had with it were a failed cam sensor and expansion tank. The latter I bought from Mercedes, it's worth asking because the prices aren't necessarily as scary as you'd assume - they support their old models better than most. I took my old W124 to a dealer (Europe's largest!) to ask about the SLS pipes and they made me a coffee while someone printed out all the parts diagrams. They treated me and my 25 year old shed the same as they would the guy with the three year old S class. The MB part number for the hose is A 111 018 16 82
  10. I was always smart enough to top up the reservoir in mine before taking any photos.
  11. £36,250! At least you know you won't have to spend any money on the brak... https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1223647
  12. No mention of brakes at all! So the brake fluid reservoir is full I assume? (Winnie the Pooh voice) oh bother https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/134509347757
  13. excellent! so it's not losing brake fluid? aw, shucks https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234948328867
  14. Me watching egg almost but not quite post "Garden Shad":
  15. That is the sea. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/385516216410
  16. balmy out today https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/314480614664
  17. available parts include which I imagine is in superlative condition. Quite easy to remove, though. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/374528680053
  18. Most of that is for the radio, tbf
  19. Really nice, monster spec Mondeo estate here... ..spoiled only by this staggeringly shit install of a radio Wish.com would refuse to sell because "it looks too cheap" Not even bothered to find matching screws to fuck up the dash with. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202301083059439
  20. This looks quite smart. Nice colour. Anything wrong with it? Excellent! That’s what I want to hear about a car. A bizarrely worded sentence to say it’s not got any major faults. Uh oh Right… does not affect the drive ability? Okay… can I read what your local Audi specialist recommended? …. Ok, um, about that “no major faults”… A bargain then! Sorry, I can’t figure out how to copy links out of the Gumtree app. Just search the poop emoji and you’ll find it
  21. nailed it https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1552049
  22. The fucking ergonomics of this, lol A good 40% of the steering wheel outside of the car gear knob with a greater than zero chance of getting you shot by armed police too, nice https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/225461726145
