    the Dart charge setup now is utterly unacceptable IMO.
    Previously, it was physically impossible to make the crossing without paying.  Now it is entirely possible to cross, believe you have paid, and still end up with a debt collection tosser on your doorstep at 6am demanding over £600, as the fine for not paying on time is dealt with in the same way as the fine for speeding or similar.
    I wonder how much additional revenue they have raised by issuing fines.
    Wankers.

    Nowhere in the world is a "safe space" and the very suggestion that such a thing exists is somewhat offensive.

    Given some of the stories you've told on here, I suspect you were already "ahead of the curve" in that respect.

    If you know what specification they are I can have a look today and bring them to you this evening. I will be passing several places that will have stock. Have you got the right spark-plug socket on-board?

    Because the route you are taking is headed for disaster and you can't see it.  Many people here can, hence the advice, guidance and help that has been offered.  It's all been offered on the basis of trying to help you avoid that disaster, as no-one here wants to see you end up in a situation that could have been avoided.
     
    I'd never want advise from close friends and loved ones... mad buffons on the internet who buy the most stupid vehicles they can?  Absolutely.

    For a 35 year old ford, that is in stunningly good condition.  The CPT / overbuffing areas on the upper body are irritating, but the rest of it is in amazing condition.  It looks like a 3-5 year old car.
    Other than the irritation of a blowing exhaust, that could be pressed into service immediately.

    well, she's going to get a rather large surprise.  If she'd been reasonable and apologetic, I'd have offered to fit a second-hand bumper at cost.  Now, she's getting a quote from mercedes for a brand new bumper and their labour to fit.  And two other quotes from people I know who run bodyshops.  If she sees change from £1k for this she'll be lucky.  She won't like that, but tough shit.  If she ignores me, I'll just engage the police and claim direct from her insurer.  Utter cowbag.

    The overall issue here seems to be a lot of people with a VAST amount of experience driving just about anything and everything over many decades, trying to give advice to someone with none of that experience and allowing said novice to benefit from their errors and experience.
    ... and that advice being utterly ignored in preference to their own plans.  You can lead a horse to water, etc...
    All I'll say is that I wish I'd had this level of genunely useful advice available when I started driving.  As it happens, I didn't do too badly, but I am sure I would have done a lot better if this sort of forum had been available in 1993.  Like all teenagers/early 20's, I thought I knew everything.  Actually I knew practically nothing.

    Jesus H fucking christ some people really are utter cunts.
    Just had an ultra irritating karen in a D3 reverse into the front of the merc.  I saw it happen.  I wasn't in the car at the time.  Cue an utter barrage of shit from her about "you parked too close"  "I didn't see you"  "you're in an awkward location" yadda yadda.  And when I tell her that she's done damage (which she has) she gets all twattish with me, and starts telling me I'm being agressive.  She then gets shitty with me when she gives me her phone number and I drop call her phone to make sure it's her and to give her my number.  "oh, don't you believe me??!?!!!?"  Actually, no, I don't.  Plus this is the easiest way to give you my number.
    Then when I give her my name "well that's typical.. that's my ex's name"  What the utter fuck has that got to do with it?
    No apology for hitting the front of my car.  A properly nasty arrogant attitude, and she even said "what else do you want,.. I'm in a hurry".
    Fuck you, you utter waste of blood and organs.
    And breathe!
