  1. I had big plans to take my e46 320d to 200 or 300k, sadly I'm going to sell it soon at 191k. Bought at 100,600 though.



    I had similar plans for ours, but it was a pile of overrated rusty shit.... big MOT fail for grot. 

  2. Gear oil do you still have those wheels? I need a spare for our Chevy Aveo and Google says a 15 inch VX steel is correct. I will take all 4 of course, could potentially use as winter wheels for the Corsa also.

    Yep, PM replied to, and I can confirm they are very foc.

  3. Well, got it home and lost 1st and 2nd gear, further investigation has revealed........gearbox is knackered, rattly noise im guessing was the selector fork breaking up and floating about inside, so, now looking for gearbox

    UPI at Inverkeithing had 2 or 3 75's in when I was there couple of weeks ago.









    But the big, some would say crucial question is - has the Paul Walker sticker been removed and burnt with actual fire yet ?

  4. May I offer...


    1 x Vectra B front bumper in silver, all mounting tabs unbroken, fog lights intact as is the rubber bit along the bottom edge.


    4 x Vauxhall 4 stud 15" steel rims, with Pirelli P600's with about 6mm tread. Been off the car about 2 years on a pallet at work.


    1 x Vectra B estate load cover.


    Collect Edinburgh or Falkirk.

  5. Don't know what the crack with Nobles is, only time I was there they let me in the yard but as everything was so jammed packed together I couldn't get what I needed... Stacks 3 & 4 high and 12 inches if yer lucky to get between them. My Vectra got collected by Car Take Back by Nobles, I guess they aren't interested in breaking now, just crushing..??


    Went to UPI instead for parts, job jobbed.

  6. Keep an eye out for the Holden HSV thingy sat on Crewe Road North in Pilton, been sat a while now which makes me think the owner is either banned or something expensive has gone pop...


    Craigentinny has a fair bit of chod too, there was one place with 3 Minis and a 2.9 GLS Sierra which I never did get around to sticking a note through the door enquiring about... :roll:

  7. Got 2 at moment, but a rotten Ford Orion in 1.8D flavour would do nicely.

    Sorted forum for something to do to be honest as i hardly go out nowadays,also had a server doing nothing,also a IPB licence.

    Thanks for the thought though.


    That's the spirit Dave...

  8. We have a WINNER!!1!


    £8991 worth of leaf sprung nonsense and not a guinea more I wager thee good Sir.


    Current bid:£9,000.00 Reserve not met


    £9 out which is bloody good guess, although Garycox was only £75 out. PM me your address Gearoil and I'll pop your winnings into the post for you mate.


    Crikey, I ruddy well won...!!


    That's a bloody stupid price. Wonder what he really wanted for it..?


    Anyhoo, winning gushing acceptance speech thus:


    I'd like to thank my parents for bringing me home in a Landcrab 35 years ago, my brothers mate Gudge for letting me hang around with them and go round the town centre at breakneck speeds in his Avenger, my Dad's mate Shug for teaching me to swear,Trigger and Autoshite for this opportunity to shine, and finally the makers of Vise Grips & Bradex. Thank you all. :lol:
