    I can’t imagine anything more pointless that watching two electric cars race. I’d imagine some people will find it interesting but then there are people that listen to Cricket on the radio. 

    I have to agree, they are soulless things, none of what I saw at Goodwood would make me want to go and watch them race, the formula extreme, formula E, electric rallycross etc etc were dull, yes they were fast but for me it's as much about the noise and smell and vibration of racing cars, which EV's offer non of.

    V70 2.4 Petrol Auto doing 1.5 miles in town every day.

    Don't really care too much

    47mpg Z900RS doing 200 miles a weekend

    Don't really care much either.

    To update my new E270CDI which was bought to replace the thirsty V70 is averaging 40 mpg as it's used mainly round town, and will easily crack 50mpg on longer runs, seeing as there's less than 5p difference between petrol and diesel prices now I'm technically almost twice as much better off. 

    My bike is doing 0mpg but not using any fuel as I can't be arsed to ride it this year.

    All good! I've not checked my wheels for heat although I think my black one may have a slightly binding OSR caliper. 

    Ps check to see if the roof opens off the key!

    It's possible your caliper is sticking again I had to free it up once before

    And I'm still pissed about the roof thing :D


    The shark fin is the radio aerial, forget about upgrading the stereo apart from fitting a parrot kit or similar, it's not really possible, if you do fit a parrot kit you need to plug it into a hidden plug behind the trim panel on the transmission tunnel on the passenger side and have aux activated with tech2, on the face lift models you can simply slot a different head unit in, not so on the earlier ones. 

    They are nice cars, I enjoyed mine.

    EBay selling. Have they taken away the offer it to the next highest bidder thing? Seems I can’t even message the next prick and only option is to cancel and relist. Final value fee back though bummed for another listing fee. 
    I fully realise that this is a small gripe in the grand scheme of things though budding and winning my motorcycle and not being even polite enough to respond / make up a bullshit excuse surely warrants getting a lifetime of postage unpaid shit from my cats litter tray mailed through your door. In fact I’ll purposely not get his balls chopped and mail you his stinking piss too.

    And breath. 

    Classified ad with Best offer is the only way to sell a vehicle on eBay, if you get an offer you accept message the person and tell them you'll take it but don't pull the listing until the car/bike is away up the road, works every time for me.

    It stopped working on way back from taking my stepdaughter home, I also noticed the external air temp sensor had dropped from 27 to -17 degrees C. Wondering if that’s anything to do with it. 

    Yup it will be.

    i really really wanted a sonic grey one!

    but no-one whatsoever so far has said they don't like it!

    I don't like it! They are seriously fugly and a complete styling mess, I'm sure it's a nice car though 😂

    Those stickers would be a red flag. 🤣

    The air filter would be a red flag. 

    Yup, I'd have not got past looking at the pictures to be honest.

    I had a mk1 VRS it was brilliant.

  8. Picked this up after a fraught train journey involving 4 trains, a missed connection and a lot of stress today


    The drive home was thankfully uneventful, its an economical beast, 53mpg over 156 miles of mainly motorway, a bit better than the 24 I got from my V70 usually. 

    Thanks to @sims00 for a easy pleasant deal as usual, my wife thinks we should just swap cars every 3 months. :D


    Train stress :(

    That sounds like a proposition, well dodged.

    The more I think about it the more I'm confused, who in their right mind would want to buy my car, then I deliver it and they then make the 800 mile round trip to drop me back off, people are insane, there must be other better ones closer to him, madness!

  10. Heat probably and a BFO hammer, what bike? 

    You could remove the rear wheel then remove the swing arm with the shock and linkage still attached to give better access, not too difficult if it's on the Divvy in profile avatar. 

  11. To me shite ownership is fine if you do low miles and you aren't averse to fixing things yourself, I run a 19 year old Volvo and the wife a 13 year old 308, combined we do less than 6k a year so the sub 30mpg doesn't sting that much. 

    However when we both did 20-40k a year in previous jobs it was new all the way, we needed something that would do a reliable 60mpg and a modern diesel was the only choice as we had to be able to get to work and if the car went wrong you'd throw it back in the dealers and tell them to fix it.

    To be honest they only have bowed to monetary pressure. Masks are worn on public transport and in all buildings related to health issues. Including the pharmacy.

    Some shops still insist that their staff wear masks, even when behind a till screen. The Spaniards are so indoctrinated that they wear their masks when alone in their cars.

    Walk around the shops and you can still her the warnings about keeping your distance. Hand Gels are still available at shop entrances. And these are used.

    No different to a lot of England still then, went to collect something from Domino's pizza the other night and it was strange to see every single member of staff behind the counter wearing a mask, see plenty of morons driving round with masks on in their cars too.

    Mine didn't have a rev counter (does now) but does have electric windows and remote central locking. It also has these black wheel trims which I thought were after market but apparently they are genuine pug.

    I paid £700 at a mates body shop to have a full respray as the body was starting to look a little bit rough after ten years on the street. I've also upgraded the four speakers which improved the sound loads. 

    It is bright red not pink!



    Looks pink to me.

    I sure hope so! I'm going to post it on Monday special delivery, it should be turned around and back to me by Thursday hopefully.

    He wants the cash in the box, he's clearly not* doing this under the radar 😂

    Yeah it's weird, cash only no PP or bank transfer, I bet its been quite lucrative over the years.

    Get yourself a criminal record sharpish. You won't have to do it then.

    Or just ignore the summons, it's not sent recorded or signed for so you never received it!

    I have a mate looking for a sub £700 car, and another looking for a sub £5k van for a short time that he won't lose on. Nothing about local online or even at the side of the road with a '4sale' sign. Madness.

    I've an S80 in the for sale section 😏
