  1. Might join tonight, later on my way home if I can work it out.
  2. What's the deal with this then? Nice looking E90 BMW on British style/colour/font plates: JK 53 AB Only 6 digits, and not recognised on the DVLA site. No country flag on it either - whose plate style is that then?
  3. That is a Billy bargain, great find.
  4. I have been quite unlucky. Minutes later... (AA van was not for me, but made a good photo while broken down) 14 months later... And then... The bridge in both "before" photos is the same one on the same road. The "afters" are the same parking spot at the same petrol station, and with AA vans. I'm never taking an old car down there again...
  5. Is that shared storage or do you have any connection to the fire engines and ERF in the background?
  6. Panel Gaps? Never heard of her...
  7. Long live das E-Klasse. New sills should have it on the road to 300k?
  8. A big old thumbs up to Mobile Brakes and Tyres Ltd in Portsmouth. Really lovely guy, efficient, polite and communicative. https://www.brakesandtyres.co.uk/
  9. If they're insured (both premises and vehicles), surely their financial risk is little-to-nothing except for a hiked premium?
  10. Will Champion, of Coldplay, drove a humble Polo until recently. Their bassist Guy Berryman has a slightly* more extravagant collection which includes an SM so he can be considered a WINNAR.
  11. A very kind offer - Ladies, form an orderly queue please! Local friendly tyre man should be here tomorrow morning assuming he can get hold of tyre, so fingers crossed should be back on the road.
  12. I've got my annual good deed out of the way early this year by lending the Saab to a friend for the week so he could get around. We were out in his car at the weekend and got a puncture on the way back to mine, no spare/repair kit/goo can, so got the car rescued to my place as it was much closer. You can see the damage on the SP of "Sport". Nearly new Pilot Sport 4, I'm glad I'm not paying the bill on that one! Of course that now means I've been left with an immobile BINI until the tyre fitter comes later this week, hopefully I don't need to go anywhere because I can't! I think I need to refer to the @Six-cylinder book of motoring and buy another car to prevent this happening again 😁
  13. That parts list could be useful... Dad's in the middle of changing the manifold gasket on his at the moment so if something goes Pingfuckit then I'll forward him your list, though he's pretty much only been able to do one bolt every few days because of his back. Also, there's no heat shield that I'm aware of, but of course it could just be missing!
