    That's giving me horrible flashbacks - I was trying to work out which door to use to get into a taxi after 9 bottles of Newcy Brown. Ended up perched on the drivers lap. And it wasn't even a taxi, it was a driving instructor.

    It has the same problem as mine dis. The rear foot wells fill up with water. It will be the plastic sheeting behind the door cards than needs attached properly.

    Those dirty pikey metal thieving cunts have moved onto stealing complete cars now that scrap's worthless, you may think you're safe because your car is low value, but do just check what it would fetch if breaking, that's what the filthy lazy sub-species will be up to, when they're not fucking their own kids that is.
     

     
    Sub £20 these days, they're good, been running one constantly for three years, just works, anywhere.
    Below is the reply when I was abroad, went for a wander and like a wanker forgot where I'd parked, saved the day.

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&q=50.089230,14.417822&z=16 Fitted one today to a shitter of a campervan for my bruvs family, classic case of who the fuck would nick that utter heap of wank? But in spite of looking a rake it would easily break for a couple of grand. There's a bunch of wiring for all manner of features but we don't need to concern ourselves, just connect the red and black to a constant supply, add a sim card with a tenner on it, then there's two aerials, one GPS and one for the cell signal. I like to mount these well apart in case they meddle with each other, in this instance easily placed where there's no metal between them and the sky, on a car somewhere like behind grill or in a lamp can be nice, think signal access. Here it is mounted in a secret hidden place, quick half hour job as the interior will need to be all out to rebuild at some point, when it can be even better hid.Easy peasy low spanner rating job, don't even need a spanner.  
    Subhuman filth often abandon their booty for a day or so, this demonstrates the effectiveness of trackers as the cowardly hedgehog munchers fear being traced to their disgusting lair. Obviously this is where a fortunate owner might retrieve their wheels, or an intelligent one will think to wait in the back with a wheelbrace, don't kill the scum right away as you need to cut the fucker open while alive, try to find what's wrong inside the dirty shit eater bastards. When done, fuck the piece of shit into an old bathtub and pour in some traffic film remover until you've just the bones left, now pick these out carefully one at a time, drill an 1/8" hole in each end and cable tie to the next, use white ties. When it's all linked buzz a cuphook into the middle of the skull and hang it off an old standard lamp, should fetch enough off a medical student to cover a new quarter light, ignition barrel and a few quid for your trouble.

    Mad Cyril reacted to Cavcraft in Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) for new diesel cars should be raised by up to £800   
    And once more some knobweasels in power can't get their heads round the fact WE are the recyclers of this world. It's us who are doing our bit by making cars last for 10/20/30+ years. It's us mending and making do, rather than throwing money at a problem that isn't there in the first place. Not some fucking pollution factory churning out wheeled finance items to people who's only mantra is cheap road tax and two grand discount by chopping in a perfectly reliable, useable old motor.
    And then what happens? The whole bastard thing repeats itself as disused runways full of decent cars sit there until China and Russia dictate high scrap prices, and pollution is massively increased by sending ships half way round the world and back to collect the fragged cars to make into new cars they can then ship round the world again.
    Fuck the lot of them.

    'ere, 'ere.
     
    I ran a 2003 9-3 2.0t (petrol) Vector about seven or eight years ago.
    It was one of our company cars from new. I ran it from 50k - 100k and I never had a spot of bother with it. It never used a drop of oil or water,nothing squeaked, nothing fell off, nothing rattled.
    We never had to spend a penny on it.
    It was comfy, quick, quiet, and didn't feel anything like a rock hard, scrabbly, under-steery Vauxhall to me.
    Everybody who drove it or rode in it loved it, indeed two of my mates bought one after being in mine.
    Unfortunately one of them bought a diesel which sounded like a tractor and spent an awful amount of time in the Saab dealer.
     
    Buy a well looked after petrol one and I reckon it'll make you smile long time.

    Mad Cyril reacted to scaryoldcortina in 6 monthly MOT? Taxi?   
    Lots of traders put a fresh ticket onto a sold car as part of the deal even if it wasn't due. I'd guess it got tested at 3 years old, chopped in for a newer model, tested when it sold.
     
    Hard to explain the next six month test, or the 17 month gap except by assuming it got traded in and sold again, did a full year on the road but got chopped in when the test was due, sat for 6 months before selling again.
     
    But that's hardly likely, is it? It's not like it's a huge hard to shift citroen or anything!

    Mad Cyril reacted to cort16 in 28 Days Later - The Ghosts of Longbridge   
    A few years back I went to visit an old  creepy as fuck theme park in the states. I wasn't really there illegally I was part of a team looking at a re-generation program for the area, which had been hit hard by the closure of a larger local steel mill. The plan was to knock it all down and build some small business incubator units, a retail park and new cinema.
    There was a bit of local opposition so wrongly or writely we started spreading rumours out to the local media about the park being unsafe and possibly haunted (it was creepy).  To be fair it went a bit far and a few of the security guys (local hicks) scared the shit out of a few people trying to break into the park. As a result  this team of whistle blowing hippy type turned up in their scened up hipster van and started digging into the story. It was a wee smart arsed fat lassie, a stoner and his massive dog and a tidy but dippy girl and her gay brother. The pesky bastards uncovered the whole thing and I got in big trouble. The whole re-generation project was cancelled and now the area has a massive drug and un-employment issue. I hope they're happy!
