    Been in Scotland for a few hours. Haven’t seen any proper Volvos... think I might complain to Nicola Sturgeon. 
     
    Although did park next to another Saab...

    Fuck off you massive twat. 
     
    I am suggesting that people who repeatedly post videos pointing out other people's shit driving are generally not the best drivers themselves. I don't think he deliberately escalated the accident, he probably thinks he didn't do anything wrong. 
    I am not disputing that there was bad driving on the woman's part, just pointing out that there was bad driving from the BMW driver too. For the benefit of the capital letters wanker up there that's what discussion is.

    As Jamie said look at the headlight adjuster on dash and if no height adjustment it would originally probably had xenon. Also should be adjuster arms on the front and rear suspension for the xenon. But chances are not replaced when new arms fitted. 
    Here's a link to previous owners posts on forum. In 2009 he fixed the xenon lights.

    Don't worry, this Astra will be just fine.  I'm sure the nice man in the flatbed is just taking it for repairs and a well deserved, full valet.

    Been a supervisor and manager in 2 different re homing and rescue centres, in the second one i was at, we had a running joke/situation of this woman who would come in at least twice a week to hand in another "stray" cat.
    In all my time there, i don't think a single one of them was a stray, they were all her neighbours and folks nearby.
    In fact, she brought the same poor fucking cat back to us 3 times in 2 weeks and even had the cheek to ask us "are you sure he isn't stray?"
    "Yes, i'm certain....that's why you've managed to get him here 3 times, we're not just immediately sticking him in a van and dropping him back off in your garden when you hand him in you know..... we speak to the owners and they pick him up, they live 2 houses down from you and are worried why he keeps randomly going missing"
    "So he goes missing?"
    "Only when he's been kidnapped and wrongly handed in here "
    "Well....better to be safe than sorry i guess"
    "No... no..... please just leave him alone from now on, he's a cat, doing cat things, it's normal.... honest"
    I think the weekly struggle to not yell "STOP BRINGING US YOUR NEIGHBOURS CATS YOU FUCKING LUNATIC" wore me out.

    200/400 OC are a nice bunch, cheap membership, and loads (I mean loads) of good knowledge and stacks of spares easily unlocked. Always enjoy meeting up with other club members at events. Chair, John Batchelor, is a genuinely nice bloke and makes everyone feel special. Absolutely no snobbery about the condition of your car at all.

    Assuming it is the same as a MK1, yes there are too little rubber pipes (for front and rear) that run off the screen pump that deteriorate over time and can pop off - quite exposed to the elements down there.

    Old news from Friday! Small collection as I'm a shit shiter and not into public transport in any way. Agreed to buy an ex. raffle car a week or so go and had been procrastinating about the journey to get it. Mate was heading up to me on Friday to collect a car trailer then down to Glagow to drop me off. After that he was heading to Wigan overnight, next morning to Salisbury then across to Kent to pick up a non running Morris Minor, back to Wigan overnight and back to Glasgow (Better Shiter!)
    Any way thanks to Andy CMS206 and Jamie Bangernomics for patience and general helpfulness. Great to meet Andy as he is proper Shiter and part of the Scottish contingent I hadn't met yet. 
    First stop at an actual airport to pick up trailer.  



     
    Bloody Ford invading!

    Boot Full

    Let it in eventually.





     
    Still a handsome motor the Mk2 in my opinion. I owned an 1800 back in 2001 and always liked them. Only fault is it tramlines a bit with the low profile tyres on it. Also the windscreen scooshers were bereft of any scoosh on the front but I found a clue to that and likely just a pipe or something
