  1. Well that went very well. Fully comp 4k / year £55 I am 54 and technically still married, guess that helped.
  2. MAde my day seeing this, looks like a well used daily, tired but clean. This has been sitting for some time, i'm not a fan of white wheels ( wellers exempted) but this does tickle my fancy, i am a fan of small and japanese. I feel a note coming on.
  3. Spot the difference. Finally got off my back side and made a decision. New plates from halfords £32.50. made while you wait. 10 mins. Impressed. Maybe this weekend insurance and tax for 1st May No cloning my plate please .
  4. Thought i would take my 2 children up to london ( richmond station) from basingstoke next friday. Basingstoke is only 40 miles from richmond. Bloody hell, return ticket for 3 £49 ! Plus parking at Basingstoke. I have been out of the country for a few years but this seems expensive . Seems it is cheaper to take the 2001 civic. Parking £10 Congestion charge £15 fuel about £14 total. £39. And a good run for the civic . Surely this needs sorting out Mr railways and London.
  5. Made my sunday morning seeing this action scene. And yes, i was parked up at side of road to take pic.
  6. This is in basingstoke, nice older area too.
  7. I am doing some temp royal mail driving, amazing the amount of seemingly abandoned cars i have seen. This has probably never moved !
  8. Going by the mold growing inside this has been like this for some time. Going by the arse in the air stance i guess gearbox woes.
  9. I have been vaccinated abroad, i have had 3 vaccines for covid, i am registered here in uk with a doctor now. Nhs says now possible to register foreign vaccines on nhs for covid pass. I queue online diligently and with true British patience to make a booking to physically show my papers and get them registered. I tell them where i am in the country. They give me my nearest centre able to deal with foreign vaccines. Sheffield. I live in Basingstoke !! 150 miles away. A 300 mile round trip to show some papers.
  10. That is a fantastic job for a first time welder. I am very impressed. Brakes and carbs will be easy after sill fabricator and welding.
  11. ParlO italiano = I speak italian. Parli italiano ? = Do you speak italian. And don't mix up "tetto " and "tetta", look it up for a laugh. Especially important when looking at old houses
  12. As i am in no rush today for the ferry and yesterday i got flashed by a french speeding camera to offset the possible impending fine i decided yo take a detour avoiding tolls to save some money. And to add some more countries to this trip. Home via Luxembourg and Belgium. This is sunny Belgium. The civic is surprising good as a long distance load carrier. I am 1.80 m tall and slim. Driving position is comfy, lots of room for moving feet around and overall a feeling of space, apart from all stuff around me. Special mention goes to heating controls, modern cars could learn loads from the heater control position and how well it all works. Notice the bottle holder which in the summer is cooled by aircon vent, by design ??. Overall i am very impressed.
  13. Some may know i bought this sight unseen honda civic off auto shite some time back. In august finally got to see it, quick service and new battery and 2 tyres. New mot. Seems ok. 3 weeks ago drove it down to genova in Italy. Today return journey fully over loaded, currently half way in hotel in france. Sure beats the same journey in a suzuki sj ! Hightlights of overload, 98 kg jotul wood burner, 80 kgs gym weights, completely stuffed full of other stuff. I guess well over 400kgs plus me. Cruises happy at indicated 70 mph, getting 41 mpg. More than happy. Not happy with price of petrol. Did get flashed by speed camera in france , Verdict so far, it works
  14. Always sad to see a drowned panda. Local river burst its banks last week. Right up to roof level looking inside.
