  3. Yeah, paranoia is constant. I hope that my cars are not the sort that would be of interest to that crowd, but just got to keep enjoying it as much as possible really, shit like this is all too common... ...Or it ends up like the Volvo getting swiped by an overconfident dustcart
  4. This is what it looked like a few weeks before the theft, I remember spotting it in my village around May time, as I live in the area. It isn't my sort of car, but the fact it was stolen with so little respect for other people's passion appals me. I already had a disdain for banger racing due to its needless destruction of rare, running examples of our heritage, but tolerated out of respect for other people's hobbies. However this is too much. Yes, I am sure there were more than a few innocents around the scene, but this sort of thing doesn't happen without a conscious lack of due diligence from crucial parties. It seems this sport is on the way out though, this sort of event probably accelerating it. I don't usually post here, but had to get it off my chest. It has shocked me for sure, though I probably shouldn't be

  7. Well after they had brought in a wiring specialist to jerry rig the DRL cluster (missing a connector) it came in to a shade under 3.5k, but the insurance payout was 2990, so I wasn't hugely out of pocket, even if I was unnerved at seeing such a large outgoing. Still need to do the tracking, but it passed its MOT on Monday (even tho I returned home in May, I forgot the MOT ran out in Feb, tho I wasn't actually using the car)
  8. Well it has been some months since I last updated this thread, for a variety of reasons. To summarise what the remainder of the French Trip entailed, here is the rest in 6 pictures and a couple of GIFs: Revelation as I discovered the CD jack in my newly fitted Blaupunkt Memphis could plug straight in to my phone allowing me to play music and render Bluetooth completely unnecessary, of course, when the phone wasn't overheating, which it was often doing... A dear friend of mine who lives locally decided to guide me up the route des Crêtes from La Ciotat to Cassis, a mesmerising trip which allowed me to take what many have said is my best car picture ever, and with a bit of touching up could have come straight out of a CAR magazine test feature After a few more days it was off to Lyon, by the long way. Heading north via Sisteron and Grenoble, I tackled the most spectacular roads I had ever come across in my limited driving career. Though the Audi really didn't like switchbacks (some of it was my cack-handedness in fairness) the sweeping valley roads were a dream, mixed with some a-ha cassettes, the atmosphere was incredible. Even if the traffic build up did prevent total enjoyment... Lyon was beautiful, a city I had never really considered before as it as the traffic equivalent of the Small Intestine. However taking a couple of days to explore a small part of it was really refreshing, pipped by this sublime Citroen C6 that was wafting around the centre. After a couple of days, it was time to hit the road. While it was my original plan to explore more of Europe, it didn't work out like that. However that doesn't mean I couldn't enjoy the run. The Audi lapped up the miles, effortlessly cruising at 80mph, this time with no rain or crosswind to test my biceps. Many cassettes were spooled from end to end, Simple Minds, Duran Duran, a-ha, Roxy Music and Fleetwood Mac all gracing the speakers. Oddly, the only thing that actually needed resting was my phone, which got biblically hot running the navigation software. After 8 hours though, I arrived at the Eurotunnel. There I followed two lost BMWs into the brexit theme park Freight terminal, and after being chucked out, managed to get into the car terminal. There I was intercepted by HM BORDER FORCE as I had ignored an inspection order. After being threaded back to the inspection pit my interceptors were chastised for getting me and not the silver BMW convertible they had been told to find 🙄. I made my way back and then missed the flexi+ queue I had paid for, but at least I was there. The UK Now All I needed to do was navigate the M25 at rush hour... . After 8 hours driving non stop in France, this was the biggest challenge of all. Compared to France, I felt as if I had taken a wrong turn, gone forward through technology, crossed the world, and ended up on the set of the next Mad Max film. Whether it was 130mph drug dealers, or people who had BMWs on Finance and wanted to pretend they were 130mph drug dealers, it was a melee However I was able to get through and on to the relative sanity of the M3. A short blast and I was back in Hampshire, having completed what wasn't the most ambitious trip of my life thus far, but certainly the longest and most complex...

  10. Thanks, shall definitely have a look when I have the money. I take it the chances of returning a rallied one to road spec are zilch
  11. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1035997500365243/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=marketplace_top_picks&referral_story_type=top_picks Always thought the CX-7 was one of the most attractive crossovers. Not sure about this one tho I don't think they quite understood the idea of Dogging
  12. What I feared, are there any original examples left? Want to snap up an unmolestered Ti if possible
  13. Oh I have no doubt he's a bit of a wannabe trader, description shows that he probably knows little about the car unfortunately. That will be kicking around for a while
