  1. I had one of those too, it wasn't rusty but it suffered similar issues. My worst is probably a 307 estate, I'll never travel to view a car on the last train of the day with no way of getting home other than buying the car again. My recent V70 was a nail too, but the 307 pips it.
  2. This happened yesterday Sold to WBAB (superbike factory) Nothing in the garage to ride apart from my daughters purple scooter now.
  3. It's exactly the sort of thing I'll be getting next year, soft, smooth and comfy, the Z900 was the complete opposite and tiring to ride for any distance hence the reason for getting rid of it.
  4. Since selling the Z900RS I've been idly looking at these, it's amazing they have been out 20 years but still look fresh-ish.
  5. Nice to see the old girl getting some tlc.
  6. Why should they be paid the same as men? from what I saw the level of football played was nowhere near the standard of the male game. Agreed with the references to the war, it's pathetic really, they played well to win and congrats to the Women's team but let's not get carried away now.
  7. Saw my childhood dream car today, I've never ever seen one in the flesh despite going to lots of events It wouldn't be my choice of colour but what a car, it sounded a bit disappointing going up Clay Hill (at Oulton) on a demo lap but then it had some other exotica around it. F5000 cars sound awesome mind 20220730_141511.mp4

    I used to buy a lot of mags until I discovered Readly, £10 a month for pretty much every mag you'd ever read delivered through an app, it must have helped in the decline of print sales.
  9. Yes it's really noisy and kicks in all the time.
  10. Fitted a new android head unit to the Merc today And very nice it is too with full wireless android auto and carplay Then the car decided to treat me to this message Bah, that'll be an SBC pump rebuild then 😕
  11. Yup that's how they move them, I'd run them off the road if I ever saw the scum doing it here if I could get away with it.
  12. Exhausting? 😂😂😂
  13. I also had an ATS aircon service today for the E class, it was working perfectly but hey ho Groupon deal and all that, they removed 736g and refilled 950g so the gas was a little low and I figured it couldn't do any harm for it to have a recharge and oil topup. As it was the first run I've had in weeks where the engine got properly warm I tackled the glow plugs (I was put off after reading @Snake Charmer 's woes) but fortunately they all came out fairly easily, the warning light has disappeared and all is good. It's providing sterling service and I can't see any reason to change it anytime soon. I'm hoping to slather it in dymax or bilt Hamber underneath as the winters are harsh up here, hopefully I'll summon up the energy to do it before the salt goes down!
  14. Jesus that's a lot in a short time period 😂
  15. Having a chat with a mate earlier about cars we used to own and he thought he was doing well with 30 or so, I thought I'd had a few more than that and after going through my old pictures (I scanned the old stuff years ago and always add an image to my drive whenever I buy a new one) and it turns out I've owned 56 in my 49 years on this planet which isn't bad going really as I didn't buy my first one till I was 16! This does not include the 7 company cars I had and the 5 vans, the wife's dozen or so cars I have bought or any of the kids vehicles as they were gifted to them, oh and the 40 odd motorbikes!

I used the deposit for my house to buy it, not my smartest decision long term but I have happy memories. The worst was the PT Cruiser, I have no idea why I bought it. There must be a few on here who can at least double my tally.
  16. Don't understand this though, you'd sell it to a stranger on here for £1800 but not to a stranger on gumtree, cash is cash no matter who you sell it to, I'd expect £1800 if I was advertising it for £2k, everyone wants a deal so you price it accordingly.
  17. I don't think the heat is an issue, there's tens of millions of cars running around in the rest of the world where average daily temps in summer are equal to or above the spike we had for a day, I certainly didn't notice loads of broken down cars in Arizona when I was there, or in the Sierra Nevada in Spain where we lived for a while, or Dubai or Turkey. 51 degrees in that pic above? Absolutely no chance, its been parked in the sun, my mum always used to say 'it's been 48 degrees here today' until I pointed out to her that her thermometer was in direct sunlight, when I moved it into the shade the temps suddenly dropped by 10 degrees.
  18. You can get a recharge at ATS through Groupon for £39 which is cheaper than a DIY bottle from Halfords even with a trade card.
  19. It's 16 years old, it's nowhere near brand new, you are in the minority, mine is also the oldest in my public carpark.
  20. It's not an engine issue, the box is fucked and I think you know this, it will fail completely at some point and become undrivable, it's time to fix it or flog it.
  21. Nope they all have them so it's probably you.
  22. Quite, 46 at my mother's today, she just stays in out of the sun, it's just weather.
