  1. this was being broken a couple of months ago, the guy reckoned there's 3k worth of parts, I dont see it myself. after many messages he said he'd sell if for about 2.5k. now up for 1400. which i reckon is about is true value.
  2. After the amount of complete and utter twats That have been on the roads recently I welcome more police on the roads, sadly it’s not actual police patrolling the roads that we will get just speed traps. The real problem is the utter morons doing 50-60 around residential streets, tailgating and overtaking on double whites on blind bends.

    Purchased this from Amazon, £25, delivered. I've had a quick look at it and it seems well made. I've ordered it as I've started work on my Herald and have been jacking it up with the Jack from my CRV.
  4. We have a very expensive holiday for August, at the moment I’m just waiting for it to be cancelled due to Covid-19, also have a chuck of dollars that we won’t be able to spend!
  5. Fantastic, looks like a good un. looking forward to the updates !
  6. It means that the garage didn't get the work, and this is his way of proving a point. As for the woman, well. Not that I'd be able to afford his services but I'd 100% let MrB at any of my cars, welding or mechanicals.
  7. How many people are now thinking about buying a Z4? 😂
  8. Hand your bonus money to a trusted friend, run your current ZX until it dies, just chuck some oil in, scrap when it breaks for £100, scrap money plus bonus money = buy new car from here. The last 3 years I've had 5 cars put 4 through MOT's , scrapped 1, I've sold 4, while I'm not making money on them my loss on each car is only a couple of hundred quid, not bad really.
  9. My head says spunk it something I don't need, I'll probably pay the Water bill though.,.
  10. This makes me happy, also done slightly less miles than I thought!
  11. The MOT expired last December, I'll be honest I've been putting it off because I'm a knob and my normal garage who I've been using for over 10+ years has not been great the last couple of times, his work is not being called into question that's always good, his general lack of speed and urgency has started to grate, a lot of his regulars are retired and can cope with no car for another day or having to wait an extra week because he's taken on too much work, not ideal for me when I have to arrange lifts and walk with a two year old. The above has led me to find a new garage, recommended by a friend, proper old school 'back street garage' the garage that MOT'd the wife's C4 last week which flew through. The guy seems honest enough and has MOT'd the Honda today, failed on Track Rod, and rear bulb, I was expecting a fail but not on that! Should have the Honda back tomorrow and I'll speak with him about my couple of arears for concern, 1, rear spring, I thought it needed replacing. 2, front suspension arm, again I think rubbers are knackered I also had a couple of 'part worns' fitted on the rear, not overly impressed as one tyre is dated 2013. With the car nearing 197k I may well treat it to a decent set of tyres in the summer..
  12. The wife's C4 passed the MOT yesterday, no advisories, not to bad for a 2 grand , 11 year old 7 seater. It also tipped over to 137k on the way to the garage.
  13. If I'm not to late can I put down for one? No issues if I'm too late.
