  1. Whilst attempting and failing miserably to get a better view of a Volvo 240: This was sitting behind: Probably still worth a million pounds even though it's gubbed.
  2. This was said to me before and it went right over my head. Should I hand in my card on the way out the door?
  3. Cars are such ungrateful bastards. I feel your pain man. Hope the garage sorts it easily enough. 🥺
  4. I've regretted selling plenty of cars, but I've never sold anything I've marked as a keeper as they weren't in that category when I sold them if that makes sense?
  5. Welcome to the Bank holiday Weekend. Every. Single. Time.
  6. Susanna is probably the sort that would eventually arrive 5 hours late to pick it up in a Smart Fortwo.
  7. Sensible me should flog the 1100 and Toledo to get something else. What will likely happen is I'll continue to be indecisive and do nothing, then on a whim I'll buy something else and double down on my dilemma.
  8. Same one I've got. Had it for years. Lasted well.
  9. I'm having a similar-ish dilemma. I really want another car as I'm itching for a change but I need to be sensible and get rid of something first. Need to make my mind up what!
  10. Up early at 4am to drop my wife off for a 7am flight to Palma for a Hen Doo. They've delayed the flight for 7 hours. Fucking useless bag of dicks. This maintains our recent high failure rate at Prestwick with Ryanair. Fight before last to Malaga was delayed 3 hours then cancelled completely 😂.
  11. Cleaned, rotary polished and waxed the 1100 this afternoon. Didn't go mental with the polish as the paint isn't the best. Pictures flatter, but I think it turned out well. This evening I put £40 of super unleaded into it at 1.67p litre. My brain still can't comprehend that super is 10p less than run of the mill diesel I put in the Navara.
  12. Got out of shopping commitments (yay!) to wait in for a delivery. So I replaced the disks on the red MX-5 this evening. The disks on it were put on very recently. They have no lip, but they were starting to pit and try as I might I could not clean the face of them off. £48 for "quality" unipart branded discs. Will see how I get on.
  13. I know our mothers taught us not to judge a book by it's cover but the one advantage of marketplace is that you can at least have a quick snoop on their profile beforehand to get a feel if its worthwhile taking their enquiries any further. Getting a full name and photo is even better. Jackpot if they leave their mobile number to Google. 😂 Poundland Magnum Pi. When I looked at selling the 1100 last year one of the guys wanting to come see it was convicted of possessing something silly like £200k of heroin and had other previous convictions for assault. Maybe he was a lovely guy when he wasn't flogging smack, but was I fuck giving him my home address.
  14. Oh I get where you're coming from man, but the local Lidl is terrible, which is why I'm assuming it a local environmental or even handling issue for the local store. I'll buy from other Lidls just not here!
