  1. On the way to Gatwick early doors in a local taxi firms Zafira B. Never been in one before but I’m really rather impressed. Good ride. Quiet at speed. A rare exceptionally smooth taxi driver. Either it’s the lack of sleep or I’m turning into the sort of shiter that admires an old shite Vauxhall. (Send help!)
  2. Dad had one before it was replaced with a Motor Nation sold dark blue Mondeo 1.8 GL Zetec saloon. Was like going from a pedal car to a Tesla.
  3. Quicker than a 1.8 8v Granada!
  4. I had no idea Capital/Leic Sq/GCap/Global had some 405's.
  5. Absolutely delighted to see this thread resurrected AND to find so many other former/current fellow radio professionals here on the beige site. *Rememeber, professional only means you are getting paid...
  6. Have sent an amount equal* to the worth of my premium* Bavarian Sierra.
  7. This thread is 5 stars would buy again A1++, @Kiltox! It’s also a definite “I want a Saab 9-3 TurboZ ragtop next” now for me.
  8. Phwoar. Is it more waft than 'BMW dynamics'?
  9. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125268565983?hash=item1d2a969fdf:g:BVMAAOSwyq5iXrnu Actually pondering having a look at this as a stop gap...
  10. Oh god, that bad? I may well soon be having to do the same with my ratty Bavarian Sierra. What happened?
  11. Well this is quite something: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202203113455005?sort=relevance&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&radius=1500&price-to=1000&postcode=sm25by&include-delivery-option=on&page=7 Horrendous alloys, half the exterior trim missing, Cat N and to really seal the deal: 11 owners
  12. Exceptional vertical needles effort here on the fuel and temp.
  13. I’m about to have to throw the shite Bavarian Sierra away. Do you have anything that needs moving around for a bit @Six-cylinder? 😆
  14. And as if by fate, this YouTube vid popped up on the Twitters tonight: (It’s clearly a sign that I has to have a Mk 1 Mondeo soon)
  15. Omg! I remember our first Mondeo that Dad got from the UK’s first Car Supermarket, somehow having this VHS intact in its glovebox! I devoured it.
  16. Afraid I'll still be in the aftermath of Aintree after tonight's de-rig.
  17. A Puma and Mk1 Mondeo 😍 Apologies I wasn’t able to make it in the end as needed to be in two other places that day and got delayed but intent on making the next one!
  18. Didn’t expect this level of £££ vehicle in the Premier Inn Ashford Eureka Park last night. Extra points for the in use roof rack.
  19. Aiming to pop in for the afternoon depending on traffic driving a sat van back from Kent to Park Royal this morning…
  20. Don't suppose anyone going to FoD has a code reader that will talk to a 2006 E90 3 Series? I'm wondering if anything will come up to explain a slow battery drain when left locked up...
