  3. Ah, but I'm an idiot. Everything takes me ages! Cabin filter for mine then too. Hopefully the heater will then be more than just tepid.
  4. I got back today from a short break in France. Chariot of choice was the 406, despite my reservations due to the running rough when cold issue. 611 miles on Thursday down to Bordeaux and all was well. But on Friday morning my sphincter got a workout as it kept cutting out on roundabouts and at T-junctions. Mrs T asked what my plan B was. Dump it and fly home was my response. However, before the hols I knew at full operating temperature it was fine, so lesson learnt I left it to warm up for 20 mins each morning and problem solved*. Closest I'll ever get to a bottle of Petrus. Saw several 205s and a few R4s. There's also shit loads of 406s in and around Bordeaux, as well as plenty of other 90s shite. It's the first time I've ever been to the region and I really like it, as it has a nice relaxed feel (out of season anyway). The Dune du Pilat near Arcachon is a sight to behold. Tallest sand dune in Europe. On the way home today, the Mulsanne straight. Fastest I went was 60, as the locals were pottering along... 1,500 miles in total at high 40s mpg, and apart from a sore right butt cheek it's a comfy old cruiser.
  5. Glad to see this is still about! My heater is shit too, think it might be a TADTS. I'm not surprised twosmoke is swearing at the brakes. I was ready to set fire to my 11 when doing the rear shoes on that. Similar Bendix ones by the look of it.
  6. Catalogue is filling up nicely for the next one on the 25th January. Nothing remotely close to three figures mind. https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic/saturday-25th-january-2020/
  7. Hopefully quite a lot. It was an H plate so a late one, and on C5 VTR alloys I think.
  8. Just a few to add from October up to the year end. Hanging yet wonderful in Stow-on-the-Wold. This pair were also in the Cotswolds. Piss wet in Pimlico. I got soaked that day. Could've done with a brolly, but a fairly decent haul was had. On the M20, London bound. Italy or Bust it says on the back. Fair play to them. A stickered up yellow modern Mini was following as back up, but still. They made it home. Ripple effect on the bottom, pop rivets elsewhere. A++. Brixton spots to finish. OK it was being used in a poncy context, but still good to see it. I ran to get this. I must've looked a right nutter. Immaculate low miler. Shame they'll have sell it, or stump up for the ULEZ. Appalling photo, but no question over what it is. Interesting* fact. A CX GTi lives 100 yards away from this shot, in that block of flats. Same road. Some pop ups to finish.
  9. Shite pickings should be rich in This Here London soon, what with ULEZ in April. Happy to help with collection/storage/delivery if you find anything up here. Edit: I'm outside the zone, thank fuck. For now anyway...
  10. That is fantastic. Heartening to know 80s exotica (yes this qualifies) can still be got for sensible money.
  11. I strongly recommend one of these plus a MAP gas canister from Screwfix. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROTHENBERGER-ROFIRE-GLOBAL-BLOW-TORCH-GUN-Brand-New-in-Original-packaging/193062350292?epid=13006966807&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item2cf369add4:g:dHEAAOSwKu9dXtfk It took me a while to realise, but heat plus breaker bar is the only way to shift exhaust bolts. Edit: get the bastards glowing red too.
  12. I'd rate this as my best spot of the year, seen this April somewhere in the Morvan region. Looks small compared to the 307.
  13. That Astra saloon looks pretty swish. Based on the estate's longer wheelbase apparently, so probably quite spacious inside (for a modern).
  14. Did you reply "I hope not, it's a diesel". Mind you, I always try and leave some in there, even if it's just a fivers worth. I find it a bit annoying when you buy something and it's at the bottom of the red. That V8 BMW I bought for actual money recently was a case in point. Considering it did 16mpg urban I limped it to the nearest pez station 5 miles away, as the gauge wasn't registering at all.
