    I think that's a fairly roundabout way of saying "feck off, with the greatest respect"!

    I was told that a carport was better than a garage because it wasn't affected by damp to the same degree.....

    The one that came with the CX has a card which has the words "corrosion guarantee" on it. On asking an acquaintance about this (he used to drive GS/GSAs) he said that what it actually meant was that corrosion was guaranteed.

    Tadhg Tiogar got a reaction from GeorgeB in Does AS have a resident Citroen SM? If not, it does now!   
    That is probably the best-known street south of the river in Citroën circles. I'm guessing the owner's not particularly worried about ULEZ or the choice* of future Mayor....

    Reminds me of the time Classic Car Mart borrowed my CX for a feature. Complimentary copy? Forget it. I still had to buy the magazine when the feature was published.

    Not going to get that in short distance / stop-start runs; even a TDi 100 might struggle to eke out the mpg on a delivery routine. 50 yes if you make use of all the momentum and coast at every opportunity, 60 no.
    It's only the long runs where it's easy to exceed 60mpg. I used to be able to squeeze my TDi 100 past the 80mpg mark before the remap.  Post-remap, it's more like 70mpg for London - Carmarthen trips.

    Yes, the CX's replacement water pump (Borg & Beck) came from these fellas. Surprisingly not expensive at about 60 quid compared to the 90-plus other sellers were asking for the same thing.
    Here's the Rover 5-cylinder

    A bit more than that if you're running Michelin XAS, and a quite a bit more if you're running anything requiring metric tyres....

    Or possibly it's owned by a 'shiter who just has loads of other cars dumped  stored in several other places?
    At the end of the day, no matter how much shite you collect, you can only physically drive one at a time....

    I think the top pic is West Ealing,  due to the glimpse of Woolworths. Both it and Sainsbury's are long gone from here. Woolworths premises is being redeveloped as shared-ownership flats.
    This one's long gone as well. The only Sainsbury's presence in Ealing today is a Local around the corner from Ealing Broadway station.
