  1. That's not bad. About the price for a decent headlight kit anyway. And this way someone else does the hard work, I call that a result 😁
  2. Exactly, and what's the difference to playing with that or your phone whilst driving ?
  3. Yeah late 90s, possibly up to 2005ish. I only have a small fleet of 2 cars, a 1998 Mazda Xedos 6 and a 2000 K11 micra. After many years of buying and selling cars I feel my fleet is about spot on now, but maybe it's just my age! I don't like modern styling at all, there is no modern car I would buy, and don't get me started on the hideous 'infotainment' screens. Give me good old separate controls anyday. Cars seemed more individual back along, and yes you could spend a weekend tinkering with your Halfords socket set! Maybe it's an age thing, with rose tinted glasses, harking back to younger times. And maybe today's millennials will look back at today's cars with fondness. But I doubt it. Cars today just seem to be that 'a car' that gets you about. Because so many are not owned anymore it's all PCP ect there is no fondness for them?
  4. If nothing else the police may be interested in the legality of that plate πŸ€”
  5. Is it me but I thought the idea of a smart car was that it's small and easy to park? Proof I think that cars are getting bigger πŸ™„
  6. Sir, you are a top gentleman. Enjoy your waft home. As I have said before she has the makings of a fine automobile. Well purchased. πŸ‘
  7. Nice, I had a 600, couldn't believe how fast it was. Big fat tyres gripped like the proverbial to a blanket and gave me heaps of confidence. Don't see many original hornets anymore ☹️
  8. Has it got the cental locking worked by air? I had a mid 1980s Audi 80 and it always made me chuckle when the compressor kicked in to unlock the doors.
  9. I had a 1994 VFR 750, so similar. Got me to the TT and Nurbergring in comfort, plenty quick enough and did handle really well, bare in mind tho I am no sports rider! Sounds great with a slightly* noisier pipe. As for servicing, mine went to a bike shop, sod that for a game of soldiers. I was much younger then, and I would like another. But the servicing part puts me off, especially as they are another 20 years older. The 800 IIRC had variable valve timing and side mount radiators, I wouldn't know where to start. I think with both versions rear spark plugs are a 'challenge'
  10. That's fine mate, I reckon it probably needs a good run to get the battery charged up as you said. Especially if it's been sat for a few weeks.
  11. With your previous electrical prowess, what could possibly go wrong!!!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  12. Will that be 2 CR-Vs on the market soon then?? I hope she likes the bug.
  13. well bought that man! I must admit when I looked after @Cookiesouwest 75 for a week I couldn't believe how comfy the ride is, proper floaty over the bumps.
  14. Blimey, stick the Xedos behind Audrey and you will see how much a 4 door family saloon has grown since the 90s 😬
  15. It depends on whether you have a nice coach driver, strictly rail replacement coaches are not allowed to carry bikes. I used to because for some people it is part of there usual commute to work/home. good luck.
  16. Best thing at the local flower show!! Proper Crayford conversion.
  17. Mondeo- Norman, because its a saloon and no one likes a mondeo saloon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  18. Shirley the mondeo cannot be better than Audrey 😱 (ignoring her missing bits)
  19. I don't know much but are this gen mondeo saloon a bit rare, like the focus saloon? Looks nice though. How's the DMF ect...
  20. Just seen the video, thank goodness you are OK. What's the betting though that as that part of the road is a you tube star* it gets re surfaced reasonably quickly πŸ€”
  21. It doesn't take much mate. Small steps and before you know it she will be all together 😁
  22. Always happy to help, Audrey needs some love. As I said before she has the potential to be a proper nice place to be.
