  1. This 1993 Volvo 480 2.0ES. Bought for £550. Driven for 13 months or so. MOTed (about £40). Sold for £550. Ignoring fuel and insurance (both of which were pretty good) cost of ownership was £40.
  2. It's very nice. Feels a lot faster than 170hp too. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  3. As an Omega botherer myself I can report a catastrophic yogurt truck incident has just occurred. Just...wow. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  4. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202108096024276 Fucking amazing. £999.
  5. Still awaiting the V5 unfortunately. Given that the car is SORNed and registered to an address way much further south taking the car north would be risky as it would inevitably get tugged after pinging an ANPR. Frustrating for all but we're at the DVLA's mercy unfortunately. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  6. Currently awaiting V5 turning up and then the collection, pending some new uncracked tyres, can get underway. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  7. Garage took care of entire fail sheet and gave it free retest. Also had battery (old one gubbed) and new brake fluid. Fitting exhaust was a doddle it seems, although part of it was gummed, so the advice is to only fit a gasket when it starts blowing. Drove wonderfully on the way home.

  8. Supreme victory! I'll be collecting it this morning and it'll be going back on the driveway awaiting collection. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. Only thing garage cannot source is exhaust (middle and rear sections).@Saltyscotsman is going to be doing some Googling tonight! Otherwise, LOOK MA! NO ROT! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  10. MOT day today. About to drive it there. Definitely needs a backbox. And at least one tyre (186/70/14 profile!). But who knows what else! The excitement*! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  11. It looks wonderful. If it's half as good underneath as it is on top then it'll be fine.
  12. Me wondering what I'm involving myself in... Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  13. Eh? Jaguar Land Rover are about to bring out am something actually called the Land Rover Crossover...If we could stop this in any way then we need to get a wiggle on. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  14. Still on fleet... Approaching 188k now. Still going strong, although probably needs a new hub at the front to stop the discs from warping. Required a new offside rear coil spring for MOT, which had to be purchased from eBay as it was £160 from main stealer. New to fleet...future modern shite: Very leggy (91k), turbocharged petrol, very acceptable family wagon with mod-cons and Isofix and the general space and things you need when you have two kids under 19 months (or will have from January).
  15. I found the three electric hatchbacks more interesting than the ice cream van and would have preferred a longer segment of semi-serious review/testing culminating in that challenge than a double whammy of ice cream van. If that Corsa really does have a 200 mile range then that's impressive. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
