  1. Great result fella……….. although they do look a lot better black
  2. Can't agree with this - yes, talk to him like an adult...……. but don't alienate the other kid. ALL of you go - the brothers can probably form a better bond too if they both like it. If they don't - take just one…….. but at least let it be their choice. Good luck - it's the toughest of times going through it and (probably) parenting too (I'm yet to get there!!!) The sad fact is none of us at 14(ish) are listening at all when repeatedly told our actions 'now' will impact the rest of our lives etc...… It's always just the 'oldies' being dramatic! I'm not looking forward to that era at all.
  3. Welcome to the wonderful world of 'which car today' BINGO......... It's a truely great feeling. Go with it.............
  4. Here ya go.........how's the leg [and the Granvia?]

  5. Damn it - original vid is invalid source...…………… Anything anywhere I can see this breathed into life?
  6. Sorry - badly worded - NOT ALL THE CARS WERE CONSODERED UNROADWORTHY - and as such would've been allowed to continue...……. apologies of I didn't make that clear. Once the attitude started - they impounded them en masse. That's why they'll all be inspected. Not all will (hopefully) be such a bad ending….. Synopsis :- Stopped - informed of a couple of them dangerous defects - got arsey ……….. Deutsche plod said - fair enough - we'll take the lot then!
  7. I was heading in past Uxbridge - London bound - on the A40 at stupid o'clock. The entire herd had escaped because there was a car in their field...….. I didn't know this at the time and called emergency as the motorway was a fucking death trap for all concerned. I'd only just managed to avoid one of them. Me - there are cows on the A40 near the speed camera after the Uxbridge junction near the speed camera. Her - there are supposed to be cars on the road sir...…. Me - no...… cows…….. Mooooooooooooo Her - OH! OK I'll inform the local patrol Only after I hung up did I wander the shoulder and spotted the tail end of an Orion in the field. Luckily the driver wasn't too badly injured. sadly - he was out of his skull drunk.
  8. Fine(s) - yes - but not to be told they couldn't proceed due to being in a dangerous condition………… they went too far - and as said, were made an example of.
  9. Strangely enough - YES...… Apparently - the tyres rubbing on the arches were the initial pull...….. ex's brother knows one of the initial Officers involved - but when they tried pointing out the dangers they met with a load of attitude. A lot of - they're legal UK cars, you can't touch us…… and camera phone waving. While no real language skills and stuck with that yawning chasm too. Typical german plod shrugged off the attitude and immediately turned it into a - OK, we'll take the whole lot and sort out the fines for everyone then……….. Personally, I do feel a little sorry for the lads, as it's a nasty way to learn a lesson. According to the Germans, they'll get the cars back in a week or so - with impound costs etc... and fines to be paid first of course. Any found dangerous will need transportation out of Germany (where Belgian or NL plod will be waiting I guess). Stupidity learns a lesson somehow and someway - this is a tough one….
  10. Result and a half fella - if that doesn't give the mojo a kick up the arse - nothing will. The car wants to live...…. it's rare that they show us such gratitude
  11. No - you're bringing this - I'm panicking to get the XJR6 done in time - and we're swapping motors for a pootle about. Also - I'll probably (almost definitely) have munchkin with me too……… 9 in June - so he'll be well happy with this as a weekends camping.

  13. That's the venerable Broadsword - and that is the XJR6 now in my possession……… it's not missed a beat since he did this. It runs like a champ - mod and work thoroughly recommended…………. Good luck Nut of Saab
  14. Apologies fella - my work laptop - the browser hadn't refreshed properly (think they're tightening up the firewalls again!) ……….. I'm getting a REALLY slow load rate so it was a blank entry above. Do apologise! I've just seen the Cayenne comment……….. I'll let the page load a LOT longer before reading next time. Sorry fella
  15. Not particularly wanting to argue here - but who will kill someone? The biker? Car driver is sitting and waiting to turn, gap opens up - he takes it...…. he's indicated his intent to other users. Biker - I feel for him - but I would NEVER go around a car indicating! You have no fucking clue when they will 'go for it'. That is completely and utterly the bikers fault - I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but he gambled and lost. Hope he is OK and can walk away and learn from it all. I'm sure there's no-one to 'dob in' - it was a crash, the biker, by the sounds of it, isn't exactly pootling off into the sunset. Old bill will already be in the know………
