  1. I did not, I can’t see any damage so didn’t think to ask
  2. It’s been hit again today! Just got home from that and maybe 20 minutes later a neighbour knocked on the door really apologetic that she’s hit my car Now this one has damage, but I’ve got paint so told her not to worry about it and refused to take any money for it at the end of the day, both people have been very honest and it’s a scratch on a 20 year old car it’s not a massive deal ill sort it in the coming days
  3. sat in traffic about half an hour ago BANG and jolted forward, immediate panic thinking the gearbox had done an AL4 almost to my relief i'd been rear ended 18 plate fiat 500 with P plates on it and a girl got out in absolute tears apologising bless her her number plate fell off and i have a tiny little mark on my bumper, floor all straight told her not to worry about it, i'm not bothered took me ages to even see any damage i told someone on facebook about it and he told me i should have been angry and told her off i'm sorry but no, a very minor accident with a new driver, i wasn't even angry i was just concerned anyway, car is fine and i'll just buff out the mark

    End of shite?

    Talking of newish car prices my dad has an 18 plate civic (prestige spec 1.5 so fully loaded) and a very nice thing it is too he paid £18,000 for it in early 2020 According to we buy any car it’s worth £20,000 or so, that’s after doing 40k in it! it’s staggering

    They’re out there still just not easy to find i bought this 37,000 and full proper service history back in august, even a brand new timing belt! It’s been completely trouble free too i paid £750 for it, seemed suspiciously cheap but I agree a few years ago this would have been £400
  6. fitted a replacement headlamp washer cover today wrong colour but looks better than a hole! washers still work perfectly and whilst i was there i decided to give it a good wash and waxing looking very nice indeed! does look better with the cover fitted even though it's the wrong colour otherwise it's been a perfect car! put a fair few miles on it so far too! what a fantastic purchase this has been
  7. 54.2 MPG averaged the other day on a 40 mile round trip! happy with that! otherwise literally no issues, nothing, it's been fantastic for the 5 months i've had it now, can't complain at all oh, i replaced the rear door lock too! what a bastard so door card off, then you have to adopt weird uncomfortable positions in order to wedge your hand up behind the door handle on the rear of the door handle there is a metal shroud, this is easily removed by removing the single bolt on the back and thumping it to one side, it's still but it works and it comes off then round to the outside and remove the external door handle fun begins...... so as mine was jammed locked there wasn't much i could do to try and open in i ended up using a hammer and a screwdriver to smash the lock apart until i got to the latch and then spend 10 minutes faffing about trying to release it managed it in the end, then joys of refitting everything, which was much easier said than done! but it works perfectly! pleased i managed to get it done i'd say it took around 6 hours in total to get it all sorted, which was annoying, but hey, it's done
  8. Sorted the belt squeal, got it running properly again too and it’s going well i reckon it might be time to move this one on so I’m offering it for sale many reasonable offers considered I’ll do a proper write up tomorrow
  9. Do something with the XM, it’s just a bit knackered and really not the best for a daily at the monent
  10. what's broken today? horrendous belt squeal started and it's incredibly embarrasing tried to fix the heater direction control it can get to fuck i'm not feeling this car at the minute, not going to use it for a couple of days i'll feel better then
  11. i drove it for an hour or so and fixed the slow cranking i had to fill up with unleaded and that's it this is the most boring thread ever, but seriously that's how owning this car has been
  12. might as well tech myself to weld with this car
  13. grrrrrrrr speed holes! bit annoyed but hey ho i'll sort it maybe i should buy a dacia jogger and have an easy life? dull though
  14. central locking broke again so today, i went poking at things and then wish i hadn't grand, so that's a nice little hole i've got now! decided whilst i was there to give it all a coat of stone chip and then a coat of body colour see it looks better note my hole, isn't that fun i also don't particulary like the way the front passenger door feels at the bottom, it feels surprisingly thick and hollow old cars r gr8
