  1. Fair play to Flintoff. That looked utterly fucking terrifying.
  2. The £600 convertible challenge has me wondering whether they have been taking buying tips from these very boards. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  3. Looking forward to the auction game! Note to self, do not pick any Jaguar XFs just 'cause it might be funny.
  4. Problematic is a fairly diplomatic term. Some might say as strong as a chocolate cheese string a mile or two from the surface of the sun.
  5. Not to be outdone, the new Mazda 3 further increases the bodywork -> glazing ratio for smoll cars... It must be damn claustrophobic in there... The photographs Jalopnik have posted would confirm that! https://jalopnik.com/the-2019-mazda-3-hatchs-rear-visibility-is-precisely-as-1830754940
  6. @garellikatia - number 21! Congratulations mate...what a car to win! When it first tumbled out I thought it was 12 and almost sharted.
  7. First thing to check with ABS-related lights on these are reluctor rings (if you're so inclined). Had similar issue on my S60 and had a cracked ring...cost £70 all in to have it done at a friendly garage. p.s. please roffle this when you're bored of it. Assuming I don't win the Galant tonight I'd have three tickets on this. Love these large Volvos.
  8. After a gentle* reminder from @fatharris I have done the deed. Now to hope I do not win this fine example of Japanese exotica*.
  9. It's amazing how many threads I can spam with the shite I've owned. That colour is definitely the best for a Galant, although you can make it look quite weird with Potatoshop sliders.
  10. Why the hell was this FWD and not RWD? What the hell were they thinking dumping a 115hp four-pot in it? The V6 only had 160hp or so, why no special Cosworth-tuned lump? I suspect the answer to those questions is, essentially, 'Mazda'. And while I'm a big ol' fanboy of Volvo, I really find it hard to stomach its absolute stubbornness to put anything bigger than a 2.0 four-pot in any of its cars. The five-pot warble was almost a USP all by itself from the late 1990s through to the late 2000s. Now Volvo have lost that, while BMW have retained its six-pot character, Mercedes have been stubbornly putting a sort of V8 in its performance models until very recently. I look at the new Volvo S60 T5 and think it's wasted opportunity.
  11. Looking forward to this. Losing the auction game for the second time will be fine. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  12. I'll inform my sister that she owned the world's most famous black Ford Focus 1.8 Ghia.
