  1. Hi, do you still have the green Subaru? It's our old car we have pics to prove it, would you consider selling if you still have her. Thanks

  2. Be interesting to see how you find this. I was utterly captivated by the C4 when it launched, for some reason. I'd prefer the coupe, but they are usually useless day to day.
  3. What's that about never owning a car for the second time? Yeah yeah all part of Citroen ownership isn't it? Pretty steady dripping, I'm assuming a poor repair on the old leak has given up.
  4. Before I bought something else, I was going to bid on this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283958956596 However I was slightly concerned it would be problematic, as I've no experience of the 136 2.0 HDI or C4s. The coupe does look interesting though. Six speed and cruise too. 8 previous owners seems high mind you, and short ticket.
  5. I don't tend to, and probably shouldn't have here! Likewise if anyone fancies it for themselves, let me know. I don't get attached to cars anymore.
  6. @holbeck Your wish is my command. Fairly late 110 Exclusive. It's been welded in the one place it needed it since I had it, and the small LHM leak also cured. It's a bit dirty though, but I'll eventually clean the outside. Wiping the front seats and dashboard today helped no end. I can't stand dirty dashboards. I also gave it a work out yesterday which seems to have improved the normal ride height and driving feel. Steering still feels a bit off at low speed but nothing terrible. I increased the tyre pressures to factory as the steering was beyond heavy! Will I keep it? Probably not. But it's nice to drive about in. It would be perfect with cruise as the throttle pedal is not ideally positioned for hours of driving. There's also a duff engine mount and on the high side clutch, but the latter is nothing worrying. Funnily enough I found a train ticket inside dated April 2019, which my ever tidy other half left in there the first time I owned it.
  7. The Alfa saga continues, I have now lost the ONLY key. It was in my coat pocket all day Wednesday and I kept thinking to myself that I best put in the other halfs bag, in case I lose it. Long story short, I didn't and I lost it! Obvs I will now have to get an automotive locksmith out to get it replaced. No such thing as a proper free car eh? Real low car mojo at the moment, all things considered.
  8. @DVee8 Good work with the Lagunas! I'd personally love a real poverty RN Estate with black bumpers..
  9. Took the E36 out for a drive today. It hadn't been driven for 5 months so I was expecting all sorts wrong, dodgy or sticking brakes and just some calamity. It drove spot on. Exhaust still terrible but brakes fine, temperature fine, nothing wayward at all. It feels like a good one. No knocks or bangs at all. And I won at least one traffic light GP...
  10. That doesn't sound that bad for a leggy turbo diesel XUD? A lot of people exaggerate their economy so real world figures can be a bit different. Am I right in saying the tourer was amongst the heaviest mainstream car to get that particular XUD7T? Heavier than a 405 believe it or not.... Personally I found my NA ZX better on fuel than the (very well used) TD. Not by much though. I wouldn't necessarily say revs are key to efficiency, my six speed A6 was nudging 2k revs at 70 and was less economical than the more powerful and higher revving V70 with the same engine.
  11. When Fiat dropped the 900, they brought out a tiny SWB Ducato called the Talento, which is what that is based on. Still a few about in Italy, they all look quite hilarious.
  12. A schoolfriends parents had an estate when they were nearly new, it looked great with the panoramic sunroof. Might be interested when you move it on, but knowing me I will knee deep in some other shitter at the time (not literally).
  13. Indeed, it's not a bad car by any means, just a bit on the firm side for my body! Any takers on the 147 at £3.50 a go? Must be realistic about it.
  14. Send me a pm @Steve79and we can go from there. Doc, swap sounded good but I'd get bored doing 64 miles in a straight XUD I think. Thanks though!
