  1. Forgot to shamelessly self promote last month - probably too late this month...
  2. So today I had planned in for a while, to get the exhaust changed at my mechanics and to get both CV joints changed. He called me this afternoon to inform me not only had he managed to get these jobs sorted without any dramas, he was also able to get a last second MOT test done before I picked it up due to a last minute cancellation. Winner winner. The whole list of jobs cost the same as one CV boot change with t'other fuckwit. Bargainn Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  3. Stop tempting me!! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  4. I like how you were saying about you have enough small card and maybe a bigger car maybe a good addition to the fleet. And then you do this. Well played. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  5. So apparently despite this going along the line and it blatantly being some sort of manufacturing error, Evergreen tyres aren't interested as I didn't buy the tyres myself. Cocksacks. It'll have to be a part worn for now until funds improve. [emoji2357] Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. I checked it, there's a finger sized bulge on the inside. Knacked. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. They've quoted £500 for all the required work [emoji848] Taken it back, going to crack on with the jobs and the tame mechanic can bash out the CV boots. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. Well that didn't go exactly to plan. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. Not had much of a chance to do anything with this at the moment. Swapped out the rear speakers, exactly the same as my previous Prelude if you want pictures! Dropped off for a last second MOT, en route the Speedo was playing silly buggers more than normal, check engine light came on as well. [emoji2357] We'll see how this goes.

  10. Results are in. 33 MPG. Not too bad. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  11. This is absolute testament to Craig and everyone else who has previously owned this car, you've done great work with it. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  12. You're not wrong there. This is a 26 year old engine - it has no business being this clean. All the fluids were perfect levels and crystal clear and absolutely nil concerns. Still, probably should have at least checked it before driving down the country [emoji2357] Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. Couldn't have been, I still have about 1.5 gallons left in the tank [emoji50] I didn't have a massive amount of traffic to contend with so it was fairly smooth throughout. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you all for the kind comments and company by the way, definitely kept me plodding on down south! This place etc Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  15. It was a long old poke, but it's all worth it in the end! This popped up on my phone while driving down. Stand down, autotrader app. Your services are no longer required. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  16. Home safe and sound, and 390ish done on a tank, I'll fill up and get the empeegee figure later. That was a nice pleasant drive, few little jobs that can be bashed out after the MOT and I've got a damn fine car. To go with the other car. ...and the other car.

  17. 300 miles down, last 80 or so. Performing faultlessly and I'm not stiff as a board yet! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  18. Split > he already had enough cars and he knew I wanted it! Jim > it was quality, the woman next to me let her kid listen to his iPad at full blast! No headphones!I love easyJet. Fifty miles in, car is driving great. Pulled in for a piss and a coffee, then I'll continue. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  19. Snagglepuss is right though for us, we're still working! Snaut > we do seem to, not sure why. Makes for a more fun caper for people to wake up to. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  20. Actually, just fiddling with the settings has found a decent enough sound. I'll wait til I get home. Suppose it's time to set off for home. Let's do this. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  21. Bugger, negative Philips head handle on the cars toolkit. Off to Halfords. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  22. Pulled in, filled up. Popped the boot open. Oh, I didn't show you everything in my bag. I'm changing the rear speakers before I go. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  23. The horror [emoji24] Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  24. What's better than one red Prelude? An absolute pleasure dealing with and meeting Craig, a brief but pleasurable chat and now I'm just about to fill up and set off! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
