  1. The bloke dropping the car off must have run over his cat or something. It's that piss takey that I'm going to call shenanigans. Did he fancy it himself, was there a PCP deal desperate to be done? Something appropriate just over here sir, you're lucky we have this one.? I dunno, but it smells off to me. However, I've not looked that hard yet and it's not perfect by any means Some sill rot, but I'm not scared of what I can see there. Sure do. Was a pretty nifty unit once, still plays the radio well. And the heated front screen, just in time for spring. Got to drive it today. Felt like a SUV as you're high up compared to the Volvo. Sticky throttle action and stiff gears need some lube somewhere. Idles low and a bit lumpy at 750 on the dial. Might investigate. Plan A is just to run it till the test is up as a very cheap short term stop gap, but it might be too good for that. Jury will remain out until I've been under it with my own corrosion assessment tool.
  2. Another MK1 focus into the fold. Looks nice and shiny. 1 family low owners since new. Very clean design for a 20 yr old. New Edge looks both 90s and modern. But shows it age in other ways, mainly tunage. No aux in, DAB or Bluetooth. It's a ghia, but No heated seats or cruise control. Fluffy Ford seats with comedy afterthought armrest. Grey on grey 1.6 powerhouse for schlepping into town and leaving parked on the road all day. Looks gr8 M8, billy bargain, what could be wrong with that... https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/results?registration=Ck03xvz+ Ah yes. Frilly old Ford....
  3. Bx had an alloy block whereas 405 was an iron one iirc. Go on, treat yo'self https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234884296694?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=FzQHle6cQNW&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=FzQHle6cQNW&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  4. Swansea drivers. Fuck me. I don't have words. 20mph max. Time for a fag break between the green and pulling away. Don't use the throttle when pulling away. Some fucking weird prioritie a droit thing going on If single carriageway comfort brake regularly, but not in reaction to anything from the visual world. Don't stop, just roll slower and s l o w e r Phone use seemingly A OK I've genuinely just had to stop and have a word with myself/ time out. I should be doing work later but I've cancelled it cos I don't want to get back in the car. Fucking hell it's abysmal.

    It's a new thing since it's been sat a couple of months, it worked fine last time I tried. Iirc it's one with a limiter as well, is it in the correct mode is my stupid check question.

    Glad you found it OK. Sorry you found it under a tree with the fuel light on! Enjoy the long drive, hope it sees you well.
  8. That all sounds very stressful and traumatic to experience. Ring cruse. This is exactly what they exist for. https://www.cruse.org.uk/ Good luck.
  9. Hey @sutty2006 New head new headset new sump new nozzles new MAP new belts new gaskets. 20220510_151959.mp4 Purring. Boost is back baby. Figured having carefully stored a spare engine for years I should use some of it. Shiny new ticket on it and all. Even taxed it. 8k till the big 250. Should do that this year.
  10. Leggy, but temptingly cheap.
  11. @sutty2006 It's not good news mate, been a trying month... First this ... has totalled both doors. I was going to live with it and fit some replacement but then a slapdash bit of mot prep followed by a full power test run... 20220318_154412.mp4 ...and I've fucked it. I managed to not nip up the tensioner enough so it backed off. I hopefully reset it all and it runs still, but only on 4, somethings knocking and it smokes. Despite having a spare engine I have little time and less motivation to fit it. I think that's game over for the throbber. ☹
