  1. I just bought an LS2 firefly, to replace my LS2 metro. Reduced at M+P from £169.95 to 35 quid... pinlock, inner tinted visor, and ACE gold rated. Glows in the dark too 🙃 That'll do. Noticed as well it has red tabs on the sides in the lining- checked the website and its emergency tabs to take the lining out for the emergency services.. never seen that before.
  2. Front End Chatter is a podcast about motorbikes, just noticed your number plate.. people that listen are feccers.. If you like bikes, it's worth a listen!
  3. Are you a Front End Chatter listener..?
  4. Proper proper want. One of these is on my bucket list.
  5. You're getting Erich Honecker mixed up with Nicola Sturgeon again.. Oh.
  6. Eeek. I like those too, and considered one. My Triumph lives outside under a cover and has no signs of this at all at 11 years old. Is it pitted or just tarnish? Is your garage damp?
  7. VOSA went away in 2014... its really DVSA, who deal with everything now..
  8. I don't think the gubbermint would or should get involved in actual testing, would be better to have a TUV type body, or even the like of the AA or ADAC type thing. Standalone testing stations with fixed price and countrywide tester compliance testing. I'd go even further and test trailers and caravans. But, this would never make Brits think like Germans who seem to like rules and regulations.. but they can also do 160 on the Autobahn. I really do think the DVLA are skirting round the edges. That testing manual needs re written for a start, instead of appendix 1 ,section 3 ,revision 4 etc. Start again for this century at least.
  9. I think like the majority of classic car owners, you are an enthusiast and maintain your car properly. I did worry when the exemption was introduced that some unscrupulous folk would buy an old car just to save cash but that didn't really happen. I probably wouldn't get an exempt car motd either, but it would be kept to beyond mot standard.
  10. I filled in the DVLA survey, and that's pretty much what I said. I also said it should be taken out of private garages hands and a system like Germany or Spain put in place.
  11. We had a 55SX, picked up from Perth auctions for £200.. Had it 3 years and it never put a foot wrong. Much better car than a Mk2.
  12. My driveway many years ago... A driveway close by. They got scrapped before I could get to them.. My work. You can't just have one...
  13. Great wee cars, used to change a lot of rear arms on them, and saw some overheating issues but otherwise pretty bulletproof.
  14. Has nobody mentioned a Twingo yet?
