  1. I find most cars I own make people angry. Especially if painted in a colour other than original, that definitely winds people up. 🤣 Saying that, it's been a while since I've wound up the AS fragiles, think another silly paintjob or modification is in order. 🤔
  2. The thought had crossed my mind...
  3. The cup holders are my own addition by the way, not standard. 😁 It's a lot more tinny than the Baleno, and the 3cyl 1.0 is a lot less refined. Handles a lot better.
  4. The recall is apparently for front suspension strut corrosion - it's an inspection only, and if it is deemed to be faulty, they will replace Typically the technician I need is off sick, so either have to wait or go to another Suzuki dealer. Presumably this one: Reason for recall Corrosion of the front suspension struts may cause the steering knuckle to become detached from the front suspension strut leading to loss of directional control.
  5. Ah yes, the age old rust solution of washing the loose rust off, and then while sealing in the left over rust and moisture in with a coat of goo, drilling holes everywhere to give it the best chance of (not) rusting further. 🤣 Or am I missing something?
  6. Had a look at the Suzuki exhaust, but sadly it's going to need a garage - can't risk breaking the other bolt off, and I couldn't get a socket to grip it properly anyway. A couple of bodges to get round some of the day to day issues: An extra heater to supplement the meagre warming you get in the cabin And my favourite - this is to pull the window back in line when you close it, because otherwise it leaves a gap and water gets in.
  7. Couple of non digital photos of cars I've found of cars I owned in the past...
  8. Also found some non digital pics of my old 1.1
  9. Current photos of G401BLU while I'm the custodian. It's getting the odd run out here and there, but not being used much. Could do with a wash too. I must point out, it looks way better in the pics than in real life 🤨
  10. Slight oil leak = about a litre a day will be deposited onto your parking space. 🤣
  11. It has an interesting manual slide sunroof too. Not mine to do, although I'd probably say a red stripe would be better.
  12. Quattro is dibsded by @Tenmil Socket 928 and Alpine are both Solido Yes, there are two Corgi Cubs there, the Fire Dept thing in the row behind is also one. Price wise I reckon £3.50 for the decent ones, and £0.50-£1.50 for the more shit ones. Reasonable? So: @Tenmil Socket - £4.50 @sierraman -£4.50 @155V6 - £5 @bunglebus - £8
  13. You can't have it unless you can correctly identify it 😂😜
