  1. Here's another one from the emergency forum..... Reactivated...........
  2. Drop me a PM with what info you want conveying & I'll get it sorted.
  3. Agreed re. the 508 - it is a pretty handsome carriage indeed. One 'brand' I can't qite get my head round is the Citroen DS range (new ones, obviously). Quite a few folk I know have commented on how ace the DS3 is. To me its just a typically bulbous small modern car with bland styling. Lots of stupid fairly ligts & wacky colour scemes do not make a good design.
  4. I've got loads of Polish mates who speak English - I could get one to phone on your behalf.
  5. Quite within your rights to give the little bastard a good shoeing (dog, not owner that is!)
  6. Same thing happened to me today. Just went to the bathroom this morning to brush my teeth, reached over for me toothbrush & my back went. Last time that happened I had to go to a Sports Physiotherapist but thankfully it appears to have cleared up today already.
  7. Newcastle players - always have been scum. Barton, Dyer, Bowyer etc. Filth.
  8. Its not really my place to spill the beans.........

  10. Well, you know where I am if you need a loan. I will do all I can to ensure 'Project Buy Another Rubbish Car' goes ahead. If this is the car I think it is, it is 123% weapon's grade Autoshite class & will make Mr Cox a motoring legend.

  12. I only had mine (hatch) for a few months and it had a knackered clutch, but I remember the feeling! I did need to replace the clutch slave cylinder on mine after a couple of months of ownership, which does occasionally need the nut on the main spindle tightening as it works itself loose from time to time. The old slave cylinder had two nuts next to each other, one acting as a locking nut, in effect.
  13. Mild grump Was driving behind a slightly Mod-d MkV Golf yesterday, single carriage A road in Leicester. Was about 20 yards behind said Golf, doing around 30-40mph (my speedo is in kph so guesswork comes into the equation), when the Golf decides to let a car turning left into the main road in in front of him. Nothing wrong with that at all. Except the bastard didn't have any working rear brakelights. Twat. I luckily hit the anchors just in time - the Simca screeched & slithered to a halt just about in time. when I pulled up alongside the chav driver to politely (I'm not one for confrontation) inform him he had no brake lights he did look genuinely scared. Probably thought I was some crazed Frenchman.....
  14. That's good news for when you sell the Break to me in the future Haha! I'm hoping the Break will be part of my life for many a year yet. Its a fantastic little car & you feel a million Euro's driving her around
  15. My Simca has LHD headlights, but to get it through its MOT I didnt need to get RHD headlights. I just got stick on headight deflector type thingies - little oval shaoped clear bits of plastic that your place on the headlight. Not sure where they are from as my mechanic ordered them.
  16. Photographed recently by my friend in Paris:
