  1. There's a mk1 Mondeo that Ford bought back with over a million on the clock but it did need a new box at 750k. I've seen a few vitos and sprinters with a comfy 650k on them a lot still on their original running gear. The other two I remember being a transit connect on 324k at about 7yrs old, still going fine and a volvo s60 derv on a x plate that looked frankly like new. The highest mileage car I've ever owned was a BMW 316i e36 shape and it drove ok just painfully fucking slow. Had 250k on it. However, my old ml had done way more than that but I had it shaved a number of times when it was actually worth something yet ended up keeping it 8yrs and scrapping it anyway. That was most likely on 270-300k as we literally used it for everything including a lot of private recovery work. Living in the sticks can put even an average driver up over 25k a year. I'm currently doing a 90-100 mile commute so that's 25k easy just in work miles, luckily it's outside IR35 which is the thing the government won't talk about and why you're paying more for everything and can't get any lorry drivers.
  2. Should have told them it was vegan ham 😏😏😏
  3. Mk2 granada 2.8i ghia Estate or a mk1 golf for me. My mk1 GTI cab goes exempt in 6 yrs and its sat for the previous 10 so I'm tempted to just wait for that. No doubt Swansea will have one of these stupid schemes by then because we seem to have a huge issue with the car, despite having no acceptable alternative like a decent train or bus service.
  4. Cheap British thrills with a French twist.

  5. Saw the outside and thought "oooooooh lovely". But that interior is as they say in Derry Girls "you're a fucking disgrace".
  6. When I saw him rollering the bodywork NATO green I thought "fuck this" ad I hate shit like that but when he'd finished it there were some nice little design touches but as echoed above far too much use of coffee bags inside the cabin. I've spent a good bit of time sleeping in a berlingo and can concur they are pushing it if you're above5'10".
  7. Very confused? Wrong Town (City). Car built after the film came out. No mention of an accord in the film. 0/10. Cheap at £375 though 🤣🤣.
  8. Love a galaxy, can't believe I've never owned one!!
  9. I reckon it's had a bump that side and somebody didn't zinc prime it everywhere and seam seal also hence its rotted. Shame but you've made the right choice, get out quick before you get in too deep. Love these saxos as well but you can't save them all.
  10. Hate to go against the grain but I really like that.
  11. Ultimate mingebag experience, doesn't even look that rotten.

  12. Wow that's mint. Swansea plate as well.
  13. I tend to agree, you'd have to REALLY want one of those and the attached sleepless nights for when a relatively simple part starts failing and you get told it's citroen only and a 7 week lead time. And nobody is paying fucking £16k for one. It's like the bloke on ebay who sells (used to sell probably) 55plate passat estates for £8995 stating how they're the "last great volkswagen" and this highline spec model "has every factory conceivable extra" which means heated seats and rear wash wipe. I mean genuinely, who actually buys a car like that without spending ten minutes on the internet checking out the prices of other examples to realise its worth £2k at the most? And why the fuck can't I ever find someone like that to sell to, I always seem to get the ex whatever make i'm selling mechanic who goes straight to all the common fail points that I hadn't noticed and I end up paying him to take it away.
