  1. Try doing a trip to The Netherlands in one. Painful! Overtakes were in single figures.
  2. Indeed, it had a decent innings and what a way to go. 16 previous owners on the V5, and I'd guess 13 of those are shiters. Scrap man has offered me £500 for it. Unbelievable.
  3. Initially I thought it was one of 13 ECUs these things probably have, but never mind. Back to running older stuff until the outer London ULEZ forces me to buy newer or run a W123 or something as a daily.
  4. Mental is the word. Just glad it didn't happen two weeks ago whilst in Normandy. So I consider myself lucky.
  5. The above comment is academic now as this morning it decided to self-immolate. Electrical fire whilst parked up. Source of it was the boot, and I can only assume some wiring in the leccy handbrake or something else set it off. Very strange and it was fine last night when I drove past it in the Xedos. No one was hurt and no other vehicles involved, so that's something. Off it goes on Friday for scrap as it's completely fucked. Glad I haven't got any insurance shite to deal with.
  6. Going well thanks Andy. The ABS light appeared a few times, but I'm hoping it was dirt on a sensor or something as it's been fine this past few weeks. MoT in a few weeks time but I can't see it needing much, if anything.
  7. Keeping the French End Up. Espace is still wonderful, although I need to start using it more to prevent things seizing up. Shatis turned 279k the other day so that's 7,000 miles in my ownership so far. I'm toying with the idea of getting the AC fixed, unless a previous owner can confirm whether the system is completely bolloxed. I'm lazy these days and haven't done any basic checks yet. The easier and cheaper solution would be to summer daily the Xedos instead as the AC works well in that. I can't imagine the VS would take too kindly to being laid up though...
  8. Sainsbury's Beckenham car park goes global.
  9. I've started off the list, assuming this is where we put our names down.

  11. Good thread. Has made me reflect on the cars and various road trips. Le Tréport and Isigny-sur-Mer Normandy, 2018. Berck, northern France. 2018. Shitefest 2018. Cairngorms at 11pm. Sun was gone by then obviously, but still. Southwold, Suffolk. June 2019. Closer to home. My local Sainsbury's car park, in no particular chronological order. The K*nt Centryside, August 2020.
  12. One of my biggest regrets in life is not doing screen grabs of his eBay adverts. Did anyone have the foresight to do so? Step forward if you did.
  13. Sounds good, thanks. I'm not too far away in Beckenham. Maybe in January? I'll drop you a message.
  14. I'd also be bothered by the clutch. If it's fucked that's £600 to replace, based on recent experience. Lack of clutch pedal rubber in the pic probably means it is.
  15. Shatis passed its MoT. Had the rear brakes done before the test as the NS pads were very low. Treated it to new pads, discs and calipers. Front discs were an advisory, but I'll wait a few months for those. Glad that's sorted before Christmas. Reno heritage fleet. I shan't tempt fate by saying too much, but I think the Espace is fairly sorted now and able to share duties with the VS. Since I tuned it to pass the MoT it has a tendency to cut out until fully warm, so that needs a further tweak.
