  1. Had a friend (Joe) phone Saturday morning in a panic as their car is making horrible noise from the wheels on their Hyundai ix35. Could i have a look/help? No problem, says I come straight round in it. I will have a look & laugh at your predicament. Ok, we will pick it up from the garage it is at as they can't look at it for a week! They say... So it needs front discs and pads as they are down to metal, not a problem. The motorfactors down the road are still open and have them in stock, so we jump in my car and go down to collect them, on the way Joe says we may as well service it while it's in bits to which I agree so we get the 3 filters and 9 Litres of oil for it! 9 litres. All went fine, and I did the fuel filter last, which was still a Hyundai filter in it. They have owned this car coming up for 5 years and had it serviced every year with the mot at a local garage! That container was clean before use! Filters gonna filter!

    This is down the road from me and only appeared earlier this year. 18 grands worth of pink 🤔
  3. If its like my sons fiesta's with the plastic slam panel, they suffer with bonnet locks moving and need realigning and a tightening up of the bolts properly.
  4. I am sure someone on here once said whatever your question is? Honda Jazz is that answer. Question: What car in your family is going to fail its mot every year with brake issues? 3 new calipers, discs, pads and a hose to fit.
  5. The reluctant instructor. A mum or dad in their L plate plastered new electric or hybrid car/suv that drives everywhere with terrible road sense + positioning while always exceeding the speed limit, on their own in the car making us wonder if they are the learner?
  6. I will take 6 please, will fire off a payment ASAP then set a 28 month timer on Alexa to remind me to expect them!
  7. My second oldest son's girlfriends car (keep up) is a corsa 1.4 petrol 2010 and a couple of months ago this fell off. It is the outer part of the a/c compressor wheel which I put back on as tight as I could with red loctite until today it made a successful bid for freedom tonight. Now I will have buy a repair kit as pictured just for this part and work out a better way to ensure it doesn't escape like the last one as I don't think loctite is effective at the skin burning temperatures I endured while checking the rest was not going to fall off at the side of the road.
  8. We are up to 4 sheds at our house and I still refuse* to organise them! *I am too busy and lazy!
  9. I never like to miss an opportunity to remind people about Nipple Therapy. http://www.fraserbrowneng.co.uk/index.php?c=nipple-therapy-kit
  10. Just came across this German seller: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/385589776166?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=tdQUbw3WRMi&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=Ypy0e5BWSd-&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Been years since I have seen this kind of sales technique away from a promotion or show.
  11. Panda in Burgess Hill with a quality door repair. Edit: I messed up the camera quality
  12. Outside Majestic Wine in East Grinstead last week.
  13. I have some earlier ones including a 2011which I paid £25 for off of evilbay last year but was watching other post 2000s go for up to £45 + postage.
  14. It's not just the cards!! You need the phone apps as well for full immersion into their shopping experience. Remember to leave the notifications on as well.
  15. Havant Thicket Reservoir down Portsmouth way is the first reservoir being built in over 30 years in the U.K. We apparently haven't needed increased capacity in years [emoji848].
