  1. Picture this: Bit early for picking the missus up from work, so I wait in the car cooking & sweating in the heat, wondering how to get rid of this headache. BOOM What the fuck was that 😬😲 Look over to an old woman miming 'Sorry' and peeling her door out of mine πŸ™ˆ Get out and inspect the damage, but immediately get greeted with abuse. "Woah hang on you are aware you're the one in the wrong here" says my mush. Old lass:- Frantic wipes of my door followed by calling me a scammer 'and I refuse to give you money' At this point I'm left REALLY confused and uncomfortable, but tell this now irate woman that I'm not after money and to not just assume I'm like everyone else or even these so called 'scammers'. I didn't even mention money πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ wtf. After listening to her increasingly louder voice I just shook my head and said "aah fuck this" sat back in the car & popped on the Air-Con to both get away from the noise and heat. Why do people need to jump onto the blame game straight away. Grumpy.
  2. I always forget about these, brilliant things. Good luck with them all πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
  3. Bloke at Happy Als has one the same colour πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
  4. I meant something a tad more indepth, such as showing the new relay details (part number) and what each cable marking says. Well done for being persistent with finding a replacement though 😎
  5. Is it worth you getting some pictures of this new relay etc, as anyone else can use your thread for a similar problem ? He says having never seen another Rover with this odd set-up πŸ˜…
  6. Day off. Eaten something that has disagreed* with me. *This disagreement has resulted in the mother of all squirty farts, like full on grand canyon material. Imodium has been eaten. Not helped yet. Parts are now tender 😬 πŸ˜ͺ
  7. πŸ˜… I don't think I've ever posted a picture of my 'normal' self, never mind a slightly wonky headed version.
  8. Local college does hair training of which a mate of mine teaches a wee bit. Anyway they offer haircuts* for Β£3, if any of you know me I'm not bothered what my face & head look like so thought I'd help out and donate my bonce. Well Β£3 turned into Β£1 and I left with a wonky hair-do. The grin ? The look on everyones face when I said 'yeah do what you want' Poor lass was sweating in fear πŸ˜…
  9. Can you get any heat onto the bolt, I'm wondering if it has thread lock applied. And try an imperial Allen key - Might just find one that fits good enough
  10. You do realise the general public are cunts ? So some folk deem it necessary to wear such things to try and avoid cunty customer shouting and ranting at them. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  11. New job induction today - Classroom based 🀯. I genuinely don't do well in this environment, so no idea how well (or bad) I've done, but I've not felt this out of my depth for a long time. 😬
  12. You don't seem like the type of bloke to want to 'rock the boat' But I'd be seriously putting yourself first now. Why do 3 persons roles / jobs to just end up destroyed when you get home ? .... when you could do one job at a time, take it easy and don't burn yourself out, at the end of the day you'll get no thanks AND most importantly you don't want to start a new job f*cked (if you've fired your C.V out) The company haven't looked after you, do your role no more no less πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  13. Just the Volvo Estate πŸ€žπŸ˜‰ *With welcoming arms awaits Ovlov love πŸ˜…
  14. Great to see some progress Eddy. Don't worry about the badge, keep it in the glovebox for now πŸ‘ Hope you're doing well - And don't hesitate in texting / WhatsApp/ p.m us if you need anything
  15. @warren t claim - Show them real poverty spec 😎
  16. You posh individual !! you've got Auto gearbox, third rear brake light and digital Hvac. My Derv is manual gearbox, manual hvac and no third rear brake light πŸ˜… Brilliant cars
  17. Brilliant purchase! Big Andy in work used to have one of these, at the time I took the piss, but I won't lie I'm starting to like them now πŸ˜…
  18. I hear Wigan is introducing a clean air zone at a similar time. I hope they don't enforce similar around here (Wirral), as i don't understand how they expect folk to just be able to afford the newer and 'cleaner' cars
  19. Notice emailed over last night. Woke up to messages on phone from management. This is going to be fun 😬
  20. Nice one to @worldofceri and @Inspector Morose for awesome logistics. 10/10 etc
  21. Jesus christ, those drop links look like they've lived in the sea. Sorry to hear that this has also been bitten by the rust bug. Shame as the interior, engine and gearbox are all pretty good. Just glad collectively (we the Autoshite folk) have been able to keep it on the road for so long. If i had another shell I'd be tempted to buy yours for the engine alone.
  22. @worldofceri - we're missing updates man πŸ˜…
  23. I can't recall them all, but I'll add what I can remember. First up probably the best car I've owned, comfortable, great on fuel, reliable, spacious and blooming quick. D5252t powered 850. Actually this was the second diesel 850, as the previous one donated its engine to this ... Should never have sold it, but sadly I'm an idiot and got bored πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Next up is this fine piece of wafting material, wasn't great on fuel but was the quietest and smoothest car I've had the pleasure to own ^ If anyone is selling a diesel (Om606) version, do let me know. Another one was this V70 D5, i noticed it was for sale at a local dealership & every time I passed it just caught my eye, so I decided to treat myself (The excuse being I'd gained a big increase in wages, as I'd finally received my engineering qualifications) ... Was a great car, but the geartronic box was starting to show signs of needing attention, so i bailed out. Another Volvo I've had, this one being the 760 (PRV V6) kind of rescued it as it had been off the road for a number of years, it had the typical Volvo comfort Think I sold it to someone on here, looking online it appears to now be off the road πŸ˜ͺ Another rescued estate is the Outback of many Autoshite members, purchased from Trab-Ron (brilliant chap), I then handed it to a local garage who returned the car with a wee list, thankfully a few quid and days later it was all road legal. At the time I still had the W210 and the 850, so decided to sell it on here, although this was a comfortable and capable car I just never 'gelled' with it This next one was Ex-DollyWobbler, Rover 75 2.0 D Con'. Great spec but at the time insurance was just too much for me, so stupidly traded it with a 'Will Pass MOT' Herald πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Are we counting 4X4s as estates too ?
