  1. I always love the look of that 205. If the A3 had a private plate you could tell me it was a 2015 and I’d quite believe you.
  2. Have you tried Printforce? They do single copy digital printing and shipping as well. If Amazon works for you it might not be worth the hassle. Maybe if you were going to supply shops or sell at events.
  3. That’s a curious thing. Many, many years ago a colleague had an earlyish Cooper S that broke a rear trailing arm. We thought it was because he handbraked into a kerb in the snow a few weeks previous. I remember having a headache at BMW as what they wanted to order was different to what was on the car. Had to find one on the forecourt to look at. From memory the original was cast and the updated was two layers pressed in a U.
  4. I could just PM but curious if I can guess. Any clues? I’ve had this a few times where garages have had my car for over a month.
  5. A friend of mine had an identical Focus in blue. He has a newer Focus now but always says that his older one was better and his ideal car would be a brand new 2003 1.6 Focus again. When my wife says Coalsnaughton it sounds like ‘coal-snot-on’.
  6. I don’t even understand David’s last message. It is the ‘toll m8’ bit I don’t get. Is he saying ‘mate’ or are they charging to drive from Glasgow to Edinburgh now? He is away in the cream puff because you didn’t reply straight away?
  7. I had a 1.8 S five speed and a 1.8 Sport six speed NB, I preferred the five speed box. I felt the sixth gear had been tacked on and messed up the rest of the nicely placed gears of the five speed.
  8. I was just thinking the exact same thing!
  9. Dunmore House and the mausoleum across that field in the forest are worth a nosey. I got engaged at the pineapple.
  10. Spotted this when I was out with the dog.
  11. Spotted whilst out walking the dog.
  12. I spotted these when out walking the dog. The mk3 Escort was one of those South Africa pick ups.
  13. When I’m on the train from Gatwick I sometimes notice an American car specialist in an industrial area. Absolutely no idea where it is though.
  14. Looks familiar https://www.autoliftproduction.com/en-gb/autolift3000
  15. Thanks. Unfortunately that is a very old photo. Crazy to think the car was probably only about 8 years old at point. Like a ‘13 plate now!
  16. I have a set of four piece drive on ramps somewhere you could borrow if that would make the exhaust easier?
  17. That’s who I got drive shafts for my Civic from recently. Couldn’t get them from Euro car parts or anywhere else local. Honda was well over £400. Got them delivered in under 24 hours for £130 the pair.
  18. A lassie at work used this recently. She had a year old Sandero Stepway though. A trader that bought my father in law’s car from me last year and all of the car buying services, including Arnold, all offered roughly the same book price. Then she noticed the +£500 thing on Arnold’s website. She booked the first appointment and the car was away an hour or so later. Still took a fair hit on a year old car but the extra £500 took the edge of it.
  19. Och, don’t worry about it. Happy to pass on my luck finding them.
  20. Forgot to include this Range Rover in yesterday’s picture. @Split_Pin did you see my offer on the News thread? Free if you want them.
  21. I must confess I spent five mins there checking the prices of them all on eBay. I just wanted to make sure one of them wasn’t a limited run by Faberge or something. I reckon if I’d sold them all individually I’d maybe get £100 with a bit of luck. Edit: there is a Range Rover fire service as well not pictured . @Split_Pin I’m happy to pass them on to you if you’d get enjoyment from them. Send me your address and I’ll drop them off some time.
  22. The boys working there were encouraging me to grab a few as they would get their jotters if they did it. Different to the time a few years ago when I got a a bollocking for trying to sneak a Chopper out of the bike section into my Dad’s Vectra!
  23. I didn’t photograph the others that are there.
  24. If you get yourself to Denny dump sharpish they might still be there. Left hand side of the metal skip. No problem on dibs. Need to give my Dad a proper look.
