  1. Have we had this yet? Dyanes don't come up that often and this one comes with a galvanized chassis. You just have to fit it! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F153753293185
  2. Dilemma: Multipla mot booked in for Tuesday. Handbrake is being a bit of twat and binding on one side. Replaced caliper. Still binding slightly and properly need to adjust the balance of the cable as the other side comes on way before the problem side. Also, the sodding airbag light is on. Tried to clear with MultiScan Ecu and red jumper cable but intermittent low voltage on driver and passenger side airbags wont clear. Any ideas how to proceed on the airbag issue? Finally I've been offered a £500 Cat D repaired '09 Astra 1.9cdti 150 3 door with 150k miles. Will have 12m mot after the weekend. You can see what I'm thinking, park the Multipla and run the dizAstra for 12m and wait for the Fiat to fix itself. What you lot reckon?
  3. For sure working from home wont suit everyone, everyday but for a lot of twats like me travelling 50 miles on Essex's most congested roads just to spend 7.5hrs pretending to work and 0.5hrs forced, unpaid lunchtime in a place not of my choosing, it seems like working from home is a low hanging fruit. Lift sharing makes sense too but from experience i'd rather cut my head off with a toothbrush. Perhaps squeezing a 5 day week into 4 days, or 80% of pay but pay 1.25 people for 1 job. Etc etc. Anyway this is all getting too political. Back to autoshite. I'm trying to figure out my next wheels, the Multipla has been running sans EGR for 12m so my NOx bill must be through the roof. It only manages 45mpg so not astounding considering I do 25k a year. I think a C1, 107, aygo might work best for me. Simple, 50mpg, low NOx and soot. Just invest in a nice plush coat.
  4. Beautiful prose, Bravo! Genuinely made me chortle coke out of my nose.
  5. Cool, me Mum & Dad are 30 mins from you: Le Loc'h, Peumerit Quintin. Sorry for diversion Lankytim, but the same offer was implied. If you find something in this area of Brittany my parents might be able to help or at least store. They do go up to Newcastle under Lime twice a year to see my brother but the car is usually filled with cheap plonk.
  6. No I think he needs a Diesel... *runs away
  7. Something will turn up regarding wheels. You could probably ask some nice ebay banding company to repair / replace the rim and just keep the centre. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F303216646747
  8. Sorry if this has already been done but there is one of these in work today: ISUZU Vehicross apparently.
  9. Only 2 off, and €305 delivered (possibly) but apparently the same alloys but in 6 x 13 flavour. https://www.leboncoin.fr/equipement_auto/1707789212.htm/ Or https://www.leboncoin.fr/equipement_auto/1379268455.htm/ note I only looked in Brittany. Also, fwoar! bet this goes like stink: https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/1704504441.htm/
  10. Am I right in saying the wheels are the same as 2cv/dyane/mehari? Just with some venting? Ecas and other suppliers do 2cv or ami super wheels (vented) for £55 and £75 respectively. Perhaps you could get away with replacing just a pair? They're only in Stafford too. So are these inboard brakes too?
  11. By the sounds of that update, nobody could wish for a better result! We had some 30ft conifers at the back of our last house and it was always dry under there, even during a downpour. Perhaps that saved the wee beastie.
  12. Yeah, you definitely haven't got me looking on ebay for Visas, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183888078073 Definitely not... Hnngg...
  13. has it got the umbrellas in the door or was that just an older model? does sort of look like you're wanking off a rhino... Top bombing!
  14. Erh mah gerd! All of the win! What a fantastic find and in true Autoshite livery! Love the rubber mats and the triple homicide windscreen!
  15. Way back when in college I had a Yamaha Neos and a mate had one of these. We swapped for a minute and tried some wheelies. The Zip was much quicker to jerk the front wheel up. The Yami would pretty much only do it on choke in the first 3 minutes of running and every time the front wheel came down the front plastics threatened to fall off. Good times.... jumpers for goal posts etc etc.
  16. Ha! We must be very close, I'm ten mins from West Bergholt.
  17. I can probably trace my love of cars to this scene in this film - just cool, the car, the actors, the bridge, the music. Perfect. Loverly 'S too Wilson squared, got me firing up ebay within seconds!
  18. Thanks, will add it to my procrastination list!
  19. After I've completely exhausted Deboss Garages content I've resorted to this channel Turnin Rust: https://youtu.be/sCib6S2DIJ4 This episode is putting a five-nine in a caddy hearse Ecto one looky likey. The first one I watched was a fucking hour and twenty three minutes of removing a 60s chevy pick-up from a hedge: https://youtu.be/zWLnBDJWvbA It's quite a painful experience watching someone do some pretty awful weilding of a chainsaw meanwhile listening to the bearded texas version of Casey Affleck. Every other second is a money shot of their fancy pants trailer or their Silverado with ludicrous offset struggling to keep up with the owners Ram. Even so there's something of interest in it and the editing and various camera angles do make it quite professional looking. Anyway it's no Filthy Rich starting up a Detroit but say what you think anywho, enjoy! https://youtu.be/TOe9veJAM2M
  20. I has dog for evening so he can escape fireworks at MIL. Quite like the little shit though I'm not a dog person
  21. Please sir (mods), may I have access to the shouty gammon faced thread? I need something to fill the gaps between work. (TBH work fills in the gaps between reading AS)
  22. What the deuce is the contraption on the back? Whatever it is OMG BRAN FIND DONUT PAINT!
