  1. Oh lord. I'm that tired after a night shift didn't even realise KruJoe posted about the things, that I did 2 individual replies. sleep is for the weak (me)
  2. YES PLS ALSO! I shall PM you
  3. YES PLEASE!!! PM incoming
  4. Sweeping statement that. We're not. Take each person at their merit, rather than tarring an entire force etc. Rotten eggs in every walk of life, but doesn't make me hate a collective of people because of the poor attitide/behaviour of a minority.
  5. It's literally one of the ones round the back at my place. I'm considering spreading some of my stuff out to the both. He said I can have it for a while (whatever that means). But, I think this is a good chance to clear out and see if I can stomach squeezing the car in amongst my stuff. There's a hell of a lot of stuff which I cannot be bothered to remove out of my laziness. I think there's some up by Kings Heath that came up about 4 days ago, I'll have a look and try and find the advert again.
  6. FULL VERIFIED VOSA MOT HISTORY (WITH PRINTOUT TO PROVE) *in the absence of any real service history* As if that is a selling point. It's totally and utterly free you moron. UGHHGHGHG
  7. That's a bargain. Ultra clean as well
  8. WANTED; Original Rover Philips stereo for the Rover Drivers door rub strip with red trim for the Rover
  9. MK1 Focus 1.8 Pez - When replacing the ICV, don't bother trying to get at the bottom bolt from the top, despite what Haynes and Youtube tells you. It's fucking nigh on impossible to get at it. Go via the bottom, can be tricky to see but once located, makes the job a breeze.
  10. When my brother drove the Bora (giffer style is most apt), he managed 61mpg. Phenomenal really as I tend to drive averagely and I normally get high 40's, without even trying to get good MPG. The Rover, well so far just under half tank used and 130 miles done. So that'll do.
  11. Always had a soft spot for these. Slightly ugly but, they keep on going, this one looks lovely! Great buy. VTEC STIKKAS PLS (lol joke that's Audi)
  12. Also, mod's, is there any way of removing the tag of "for sale" as I'd like to convert this into a sporadic progress thread
  13. Any positives with the spares chaps I'd be most grateful.
  14. Fantastic, if you do, let me know what you'd like for it. Also, there's a missing thing just in front of the sunroof. Think it may have been a manual wind for it in case the electric failed, at the moment it's just a round hole in the headlining with a nut behind it. If you have that also I'd be obliged
  15. That would be great. I'm after a drivers door rub strip if you've got that too.
  16. Cheers guys. In the coming weeks, I shall be doing a crappy thread about things I'm doing to it to improve it slowly.
  17. No longer for sale! Managed to sort a garage here, old boy approached me who had been away, and said I could use his for free so long as I cleaned it. Get in! My Rover stays. Woohoo. LONG LIVE BERNICE (POTENTIAL NAME)
  18. No I know, it's a combo of me being ultra precious and just generally paranoid.
  19. I think so. When I bought the Bora I received it within 5 days, ferociously fast! I do like the new system though, makes it less of a hassle. Plus, it's free. No need to pay for a stamp and envelope. F U POST OFFICE
  20. Cheers sterling, do let me know. If it sells it sells, but I'd love to know if there's a cheap lockup near enough. Ta. Still available atm just waiting to hear back on pm
  21. I'll even give myself a stern telling off in the mirror.
  22. It really does Paul! I had started to purchase items with the intention of fitting/sorting bits on each rest day I had as well. If I didn't have so many tools (shit) in my own garage I would have tried to shove it in there. I even shoved in some Redex because POWER
  23. Where I live it's a cul de sac, just off a main road, where there isn't really parking. I could park it in the side streets nearby, but seeing as they are on the cusp of built up areas, I'm not very comfortable with it. Yeah, it's a £200 car, but I'm very precious about my cars, whatever their value. I treat them as if they're the best thing since the proverbial sliced. Plus, it may have also be the fact that I am plod and highly suspicious about anyone coming near my car.
