  1. 210k in a 1.3DX is mentalist territory. Nice job, very few get sufficient care and attention to avoid getting run into the ground. Bet it still runs sweet too, it's rare to see any 90s Honda on more than 120k that hasn't been ragged to an inch of its life or run into the ground.
  2. Someone on here made their own riveted plate recently didn't they? All you'd need is the right used numbers (eBay?) and some metal to stick them to.
  3. V50 has been MOTd and delivery has been arranged for Monday. As promised it's had a clean pass, which apparently required two new tyres on the front. Now I know the traction control on these Volvos doesn't like cheap tyres, and it just strangles all the power if the wheels try to spin - you need good quality, grippy tyres on the drive wheels. So if there are some half worn branded tyres on the back, and budgets on the front, I'll be swapping them around. Let's see what we get...
  4. OH FUCKING NO. That looked like this at FOTU 2019. What fucking arsecunt ruined that?
  5. 135, 138, 140, something like that yes. Junkman and I have the same issue with 405, they're an absolute pig to get in and out of for some reason.
  6. They're a MK2 Focus underneath. The 2.0D is the 140bhp Duratorq TDCI, which is actually a PSA 2.0HDI.
  7. It said FSH in the ad, but that's fucking gold. Thanks! If I don't have precise details I'll be getting them from Volvo then.
  8. (Yes, the value range on them is bonkers. A fucked DRIVe is £1500, a low miles 2.0d really is that much).
  9. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202101037595834 This is it. I should be getting it at the end of the week, it's getting a year's MOT and then being delivered. Deposit down, payment on inspection and delivery. The Parrot Bluetooth kit is a winner as it has music controls, you could get V50s with aux and USB but not Bluetooth.
  10. I used to daily an 850 T5, no chance of me doing that again. 2.0D R-Design.
  11. Clock just needs setting I think, the two holes next to it are time setting buttons. The one on my estate was like that when I bought it.
  12. There's no limit on how far you can travel for excercise. Yorkshire Police are reviewing a load of fines for the same reason.
  13. You do sometimes, I rented a Fiesta a couple of years ago that had a limiter but not cruise. You just kept your foot on the pedal gently, if you wanted to overtake you could push harder on the pedal and it'd let you speed up, then when you slowed down to the limiter setting and put your foot back on the pedal it resumed limiting you. Quite good really.
  14. I think that's Sandouville (Renault Trucks). Went there with Junkman in his R16 in 2019 (Sandouville was built originally to make R16s) to ask for a look around while we were holidaying in the area. They wouldn't let us in as there was something new in development that was under embargo (that'd be the now-current Trafic?).
  15. Tested to see if the disc turned but didn't road test.
  16. £4k isnt even a good price. 😒
  17. Fuck me, a third gen with arches, and in Manc. Shame it's the antithesis of what I need right now.
  18. Had a look at the caliper today, freed it off and now the handbrake doesn't work. Aaaaaaaaaaargh.
  19. They quite literally are lol, same car forward of the B pillar! It's a Saico model in, uhhh... checks eBay history_ 1/43.
  20. Guess what I never did. Guess what the only MOT fail item is - seized nsr caliper. The ticket runs out in two days so I'm looking at that tomorrow. MX5 is gone and never heard from the chap again. A guy I know in Huddersfield wants to buy the Civic and I want to get a Volvo V50, so Covid permitting I have plans, but that could equally be very up in the air.
  21. Regards XUD exhausts- the last job I did on my old 205 DT was a new backbox as mine was holed. Yes, they do make a difference. 😛
