  1. Has it had a replacement windscreen fitted? I had a similar problem on one of my old cars, after some idiot failed to seal mine correctly after fitting a new screen. So had to get them to pull it out again an reseal it.
  2. Just been out and cleared the majority of the snow off my Stilo SW and my Mums Golf Estate. I'm half tempted to take the Stilo down the snow covered lanes to see how it performs, but as it's not a essential journey. I'll stick to admiring it on the driveway instead.
  3. Tidy looking MK1 Fiat Punto 85 SX with Mot till October. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202101158008830?sort=price-asc&model=PUNTO&advertising-location=at_cars&make=FIAT&include-delivery-option=on&postcode=ws98re&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&radius=1500&page=1

  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fiat-Stilo-1-8-16v-Dynamic-58000-miles-last-10-years-in-sunny-Spain/203244401443?hash=item2f524f7323:g:Dv4AAOSwq6df-1rj Liking the look of this low mileage Fiat Stilo which has spent the last 10 years in Spain. Haven't seen one with the fully opening roof in ages either, problem is I'd be terrified that it wouldn't close again every time you open it !
  6. Found my Monogram Mazda and turns out I have my Brother's old Pontiac too! Both stamped Monogram 1989 underneath too. Chassis diecast but bodies are plastic.
  7. I remember getting one of these as a kid back in the early 90's. Forget where from though, probably on a family holiday. I had a 57 Chevy in Black and my Brother had the same Red Pontiac Grand Prix pictured. A few years back I picked up a Mazda RX-7 by Monogram at a local Car Show. I'll try and dig it out. From memory they also did the BMW M3 E30 and possibly a 60's Corvette Stingray?
  8. Realistically I'm unlikely to be in a position to buy another Car this year because of funds. But there a rather sad looking Beige Vauxhall Chevette 2dr nearby, which I wouldn't mind rescuing. Although if I could get another 80's / early 90's Fiat, Uno / Tipo MK1 would be nice. Or a Talbot Samba as had one for my first car.
  9. I agree they did a really nice job with the casting on both and prefer there GTI to the later Vanguards version too. Glad I managed to get another Jetta, as I really liked the opening bonnet and boot on the one I had as a kid. Just need to get another VW Polo Breadvan like I had and then I've completed my childhood Schabak collection!
  10. Been a little quite on the buying front last year, although did manage to win this joblot of spares or repair Schabak 1:43 VW's off ebay. My reason being was I already had a Met Grey Schabak Golf, which I'd picked up previously at a car show but minus a tailgate. So that donated some parts to repair the White Golf. Also managed to remove the white paint/ crap off the bumpers with some hot water. The Jetta turned out to be only missing it's front lights/ bumper. So that has ended up with a Golf front end swap. Would prefer the Jetta front end, but it will
  11. H reg Peugeot 205 1.8 TD 5dr, paid £650. Had it 2 weeks without any problems, then after that it was nothing but break downs and endless issues. Spent over a £1,000 trying to get it sorted myself and with various garages, but after a year I gave up and sold it on for a £100. Best decision I ever made!
  12. A friend of my Dad's had a D reg MK2 Cav 1.8 GLSi hatch with these wheel trims fitted too. One day they went to a job and found one had fell off. But later on that day my Dad borrowed the Cav to go to a nearby cafe. On the way he was flagged down by a utilities worker. He'd been working down a access hole they had dug, when the missing wheel trim had landed in the hole next to him! Bonus was the wheel trim was undamaged.
  13. I've mixed feeling when it comes to VAG products. Although despite never owning one, I've driven a various Golf/ Passat's over the years and more recently Transporters and Caddy Vans. I remember back in 2001 two of my friends brought MK2 Golf's. One was a 1.3 and the other a 1.6. There were certainly better finished / screwed together than the MK4 Escort I owned though years later. One of them went on to get a rather nice 1 owner 1.8 GTI 8V too, which was great car. My Mum's current car is also a late 06 MK4 Golf 1.9 Derv Estate which her partner brought new. It's current
  14. Got a link for this one? Cheers.
