  1. If I were to hazard a guess it may have been converted by Bunce for a New Zealand or Australian buyer - cars there have to be RHD regardless of their market origin to get plates.
  2. Some random offered a straight swap on my Amazon. He has a fucked L322 Range Rover worth about £1500 on a good day. Yeah, how about no and get the fuck out of my garage, blud? I fucking hate L322s anyway; they're too fucking big and drive like wobbling fat cunts.
  3. i think you and I are pondering very different types of keyless entry/ignition m9
  4. it was just called 'stealing' then
  5. I would opine 'such a shame' but therapy has suggested I @sierraman your conclusion.
  6. The BACK bumper's been off, you say? Makes a change.
  7. Trafford clowncil owe me a wheel, tyre and possibly a bottom arm after this fucking monster blew a tyre out on my Seat: A 50mph/NSL road, by the way.
  8. I'll explain. SVXs like to shit their autoboxes. I was watching an old release promo film about the SVX in Japanese and stuck the auto-translate sub titles on. That particular shot is of the car doing a full bore take off into the distance; for some reason the subs translated it as 'Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa' which sums up SVX ownership very well.
  9. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
  10. I've been on motorways in an 803cc Standard 8. And I thought my Amazon was slow.
  11. If anyone was gonna own a slower car than a Standard 8, it was you, fam.
  12. @alcyonecorporation and 'BlacktopMagazin' are the same person, yes. Note to the internet: not wanting a banger racer to banger race a car is not 'racist'.
  13. Hey, I enjoyed my time with it. [I nearly demolished a structure at RAF Upwood with it, mind you].
  14. I'm currently near-ish to Crewe but it'll be Wednesday or Thursday before I can get anywhere near it.
  15. BMW is said to have built as many as three E31 cabriolets; one red 850 is in BMW Classic's collection, and can be viewed by the public. If your boss had one, conversions were carried out to 20 or so LHD cars by Styling Garage, who called it 'Monte Carlo'. I believe an NFL player in the US had one done by a workshop Stateside, too. Might it have been a Styling Garage car?
  16. @dollywobbler has a drone. He inadvertently ended up making something that looked like a late nineties grunge video. I got the filters out. Well, fuck you, I liked it.
  17. The fact they want money for that offends me.
  18. It's already started. I can't get VWFS to authorise a service plan on my 10 year old Leon (110k) even though its own terms and conditions state a limit of 15 years and 200,000 miles. We're in to the third week of 'computer says no' and the relevant department apparently has no phones and 'only communicates by email.' I rearranged an entire week around getting the car serviced and was basically told to fuck off 'because the car is too old.' I think a public interest story on the matter would make a fascinating read.
  19. Manchester Airport. Just...fuck off.
