    Bloke I knew at college had a Panda with 'city steer'.  We both reckoned it was actively dangerous because it gave you so little feedback...

    City steering on the relaunched panda. Never seen the point on having it even though the steering was light enough already. 
    Does rust count as an option? Seems to come as standard on most cars I buy 😂.

    Conversation with the wife this morning ended with ‘it’s a car, ok whatever’.
    That’s about the most committed response to showing her a car I’ve had and i think it means yes so a collection thread will be occurring on Saturday.
    Nothing too interesting, obviously.

    At the first sign of delay I would (and have) started chasing other jobs.  These days, I make it clear at interview that I have other irons in the fire and it's first come first served. 
    Arrogant yes, but can you afford to lose 2 months pay ? 
    In your case I'd say nothing, get another offer and start where ever is first.

    Shiters of the North West I have noticed we don’t have a meet or anything like it arranged. Would anyone be up for this providing we can get numbers? It is open to anyone who can make it. If we can sort out something for location and date wise - before the end of September? If there is enough demand hopefully it can turn into a monthly meet up.

    Was in a well known Scottish dealer group with my mother and she was looking at a Nissan note, usual sunday afternoon, mum was trying the car for size and ease but the salesman was getting to be a bit annoying. Mum got fed up with his attitude and started walking away, he made a comment about elderly ladies and i slightly snapped, nexr thing i am holding him by the neck with left hand whilst saying apologize before she lands one on your balls. Dropped him on the floor and walked out... Mum bought a car from elsewhere

    I’ve had two. Brilliant little cars. The prices some people are asking for them is ridiculous. Find a good rust free one and you’ll have an appreciating classic on your hands.

    I feel your pain. I only have one piece of shite and its not even shite. Its boring and reliable... yet I want to get rid... an old fabia diesel estate. I have flirted with the idea of getting a car on finance but my cars are used as beaters and I don't think id be able to keep a car for the length of a finance term

    Sandbach services are grim. About ten mins from where I stay now and had to stop in there a few weeks ago... wouldn’t go back. Would much rather piss myself.

    Initial reports from the vehicle inspectorate are favourable.
    A stop off en-route back to Lancashire for parental visiting and tea consumption has occurred...the view of the car park puts into perspective how bloated cars have become...the seven seater Ford is no bigger than the Focus next to it and actually appears smaller than the ex-snagglepuss Lancer at the other side...
