  1. Confirmed. Its still in my hands albeit some 120 odd miles away since I moved!
  2. I love that interior personally. For me, as much as I love the X350 Jaguar and am in the market for one right now, the Z3 would be the one to have. That 2.8 engine in them is ace, it is the right time of year to enjoy a convertible and the values for a good one are only going one way.
  3. This was the first thing that came to my mind too when I read the original post. Shitefest 2015. Awful news, he was a lovely guy. Condolences to Reb and the wider family.
  4. If you ever fancy making use of that towbar, as hinted by @wuvvum earlier in the thread, I can confirm that they make fantastic* tow cars with incredible* towing manners Never knew they made a saloon though. Following this with interest.
  5. Be worth it when it's done Eddy! I loved my time with this car, once you've had your use out of it let me know and it can make it's way back ?

  7. A number of weeks ago, @chatsharris, @richbraith and I were having a group chat on Facebook which determined that Chats would be in our neck of the woods at the end of August for his mates stag do. After much arm twisting* we convinced Chats to come up a day early...i would put him up at mine and Rich would leave the beloved Mrs B for a night to drink beer and also stay over. So tonight, there are 3 shiters in my house and how nice to socialise away from cars etc and also minimal car talk (aside from us all nearly buying a Fiat Punto - see My earlier post, unfortunately the rear outer sill came away in my hand!). A thoroughly great night and testament to this forum that great friendships can result and common interests outside of our car hobby can be found. The 4th chap is a mate of mine and Rich'S.... A mechanic who owns a garage called Retro Performance. I think that summarises why we all got on.
  8. After my Shitefest 2016 success with A-Framing my Cortina with a Lada Samara, I feel the bar has been set to a new height looking at this article. I need to have a plan for Shitefest 2020....
  9. Supposed to be going to MITCAR in Coventry on Sunday, but @richbraith's Tipo isn't going to be ready. Anybody got anything Italian we can borrow for the trip? Unfortunately I don't think our other option will successfully get us through the gate
  10. @Tamworthbay Yeah seem to be. It's a chain pub, Vintage Inns I believe I used to stay there when I worked for a company who's head office was in Lichfield. Quite nice surroundings too really and the car park was never massively busy for what is a pub with accommodation. The car park goes all the way round the back too, it's a fair size.
  11. The Hedgehog pub on the Stafford Road has a fairly decent size car park for something like this.
  12. So, 12 days ago in a thread about 205's, I made the post below. I then faltered on the comment I made completely. My mate who owns the BMW referred too offered me it 2 weeks ago after getting pulled for drink driving. He received a 40 month ban on Friday, so after a bit of negotiation a deal was made. 07 320d M Sport, 135k, decent service history, has been fairly well looked after overall, drives well. At less than £1500 I think this was a good buy. Just need to get his private plate off it now as, unsurprisingly, I was pulled and breathalysed yesterday evening ? Think the A8 and 205 will be going as this will do the job to replace both as economical commuter but big enough for daily family duties.
  13. Watching this one with interest!
