  1. Shitely offered - Ayrshire to Grimsby via the A1 next Monday 29th April. Returning home either 30th April in the evening or during the day on the 1st May. Will be in the Elgrand, just me and 1 dog so plenty space if anyone needs.
  2. Nice looking Toyota Picnic with full year's MOT. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3698788890438004/?ref=browse_tab
  3. Good value people mover. https://www.gumtree.com/p/volkswagen/vw-sharan-volkswagen-2.0-petrol-2000-lpg-converted/1477454604 Probably a more sensible option than my Elgrand. VW Sharan with an LPG conversion.
  4. Not really Autoshite money but just in case anyone wants to invest....The Drive Tribe Jag is up for auction and finishes tomorrow... https%3A%2F%2Fcollectingcars.com%2Ffor-sale%2F2001-jaguar-xkr%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR0aq6nCQVPB1KtoFJbfxqeYTL0rts6I_5CIHtcYB-eT-6iTCAwmxVAf7eA_aem_AclQhZGIc07VPL5unl0LZsZVVmObQvxHpR7GoAGBJw4n_oe2hQGLj4LkOtKszDkuY1jAR-AiCfZImG9FC-kfxn-w&h=AT1bQ125oKj_bDXYlGux8EK7lzEtQCXcKzg4FJRqjm5TvR82XkrP32dcaSShJ8rkCgzvL0EB17fHMKxdjK-eazW1M9XtxaXTE_NBT8W_AHPvDNtECtB-578X9Pa8KFt14co
  5. Nice looking camper for a decent price, especially this time of year. https://www.facebook.com/groups/712366136149860/permalink/1396878744365259/?sale_post_id=1396878744365259&mibextid=rS40aB7S9Ucbxw6v
  6. Finally home 😁 Further updates later coz I am beat, as you can tell by the state of my parking! Think I found the cause of the noise tho... Bits of undertray 😆 I'll be very glad if that's all it was! I fully expected to look underneath and see bits of exhaust hanging down.
  7. Made it to Carlisle to fuel the Ellie with Momentum after a brief stop at Charnock Richard to fill me with caffeine and egg sarnies 😁 Planning for this to be my last stop before home, unless I start flagging. Fuel wise, it has averaged 25mpg so far. A little off my target of 30 so will see what I can do on the last leg 😊 Running well aside from a highly alarming racket coming from the driver's front wheel. I don't think wheel bearing as it's not droning on the motorway, sounds more like something rubbing but it also squeaks at low speeds when steering. Not sure if the 2 are related but I'm thinking a back plate rubbing or contaminated/delaminated pads. They were done recently but I'm told Elgrands are heavy on their pads and you're doing well if you get a couple of years out of them. Caliper doesn't appear to be sticking as that side is no warmer than the other.
  8. Collection successful 😁 2001 Nissan Elgrand Highway Star 3.5 V6 petrol RWD with 8 very comfortable seats! Owned by a mechanic and has been very well cared for 😊 Place your bets now as to how much fuel it uses on the way home!
  9. Took off 20 minutes late, landed bang on time - pilot had their foot down! 😆 Now waiting for the taxi drivers sorting themselves out, to head over to the car.
  10. Made it with 10 mins to spare, before the gate closes 😁 I think this might be my budgie. Cya when I'm back on the ground!
  11. Departing Glasgow 2 minutes late. Prayers to St Christopher, patron saint of travel I believe 😆
  12. Next mode of transport for today. A black cab to here. Was attempting to make an earlier connection but failed by about 3 minutes! New planned arrival time at the other end gives me an hour to make my final connection, which should be do-able, providing there's no hold ups en route 🤞 There's a chap sitting behind me in the waiting area commenting that his Greggs big softie is "absolutely smashing. That's a belter!" 😆 Now have a very plush window seat near the front, on my 2nd last connection of the day.
  13. Next mode of transport for today 😊 It has actually arrived early which is a good sign. Can't understand why it costs £7.90 for a single but only 20p more, £8.10 for a return....go figure. Hope not to need the return portion tho!
  14. First mode of transport for today is the Spaceship, coz Al's driving and that's his favourite. Beautiful morning so far!
  15. This should be a collection thread but as I haven't seen the car in person yet, watch this space! This will involve multiple modes of transport and quite tight timings to meet my outbound connections. Praying no delays or the whole thing will collapse. Obligatory breakfast pic. Ham sandwich coz I couldn't be arsed making bacon. Hot cross bun coz why not. Cold brew coffee which I hadn't tried before. Okay but weird after taste. 6/10. PC 0
  16. What time do you reckon you will all be there until?
  17. Who was that with, if you don't mind sharing?
  18. Just got the renewal in for the Forester. It's normally around £400 for the year, with the bigger alloys and 4 pot front brakes declared. This year's renewal £328! 😮 Not sure how that happened but I'll take it! Haven't even tried the comparison sites because normally they can't get any where near Chris Knott. Now just the small matter of getting the Granvia insured next month and then Paddy the Corolla renews in June.
  19. Anyone want a Scenic for £140? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2114096952316619/?ref=browse_tab Does need a few bits tho.
  20. A tiny car with no front seats... https://www.facebook.com/groups/1659864250951399/permalink/3864075110530291/?sale_post_id=3864075110530291 Never heard of such a thing before but I'd be interested if it wasn't the other end of the country.
  21. This looks like a decent value motorhome on reasonable condition. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1482793628666831/permalink/3793362670943237/?sale_post_id=3793362670943237 Needs a bit of mechanical fettling and put through an MOT but now is the right time to buy before prices go nuts.
  22. How much of a faff is it to do injectors on a diesel C5? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/596393156020228/?ref=browse_tab
  23. Very cheap Skoda Roomster https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/766480118288794/?ref=browse_tab Doesn't specify what repairs are required tho...
  24. Is anyone close enough to this to give it the once over? I've always wanted a Grand Move but these are so few now I'd like to at least try this one. Does have some advisories and previous welding on the sills and front subframe which I'd prefer to get some eyes on before bidding.
  25. Nice looking Talbot camper. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/984179462480927/?ref=browse_tab Does need an MOT tho....
