  1. Aware questions regarding MOT's have been asked, looks as though the powers that be have listened. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/vehicle-owners-to-be-granted-mot-exemption-in-battle-against-coronavirus
  2. Saab 9-5 Aero Auto Estate, high miles but a rare beast for two reasons. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Saab-9-5-Aero-HOT-Auto-Estate/153870670284?hash=item23d36819cc:g:Dx4AAOSwzOlec5u1 Ventilated front seats (as well as heated but they all get those) and.... It misses the higher rate tax band by 10 days so you are not paying £550 a year for the honour. If this had a sunroof, it would be the holy grail 😛 £1000 with 12 months MOt, but needs tyres all round as advisories.
  3. You tube just suggested this to watch this morning (From 10 years ago) Not sure whether to laugh or be worried.
  4. Interior (and rest of car) shown in DW's latest video. All looked lovely apart from dipped /side lights set up which confused me
  5. This would surprise a few at the traffic light grand prix. Not cheap, but appears to have a load of good bits on it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174216033860
  6. I wondered if this was a typo? Very nice though.
  7. Ep 30 due tomorrow afternoon. https://www.youtube.com/post/UgxumMuuBDpQ8VPun6J4AaABCQ
  8. Jesus. Missed that totally. Need to spend more time on As 😉
  9. Apologies if this is listed elsewhere (on my phone so searching a bit difficult), but thought this needed it's own thread. I subscribe to Smith and Sniff on YouTube and just spent 45mins in the car watching their latest video. Fantastic to watch and all for sale. http://www.hjpugh.com/new.html Now going to spend the next 30mins going through the catelogue. https://www.easyliveauction.com/catalogue/b4e12819241cc188e9602114fbde3435/0af8d24542e81eb9357e7ef448a6646f/vintage-and-classic-cars-to-include-many-ford-mk-i’s-mk-ii/
  10. #28 please if it's still free. If not any old random. Cheers
  11. wasn't this the one where they had to cancel some of the publicity shots as one of them looked really happy with the car... looks great though
  12. First dibs please , when you choose to get rid. Always love an R8, but only had a CVT auto.
  13. Not car related, but just ended up at this video. Amazing what technology can do nowadays.
  14. Air con and heated seats as well. Oh the decadence Had a 400 years ago that was a lovely car. Fitted rear parking sensors which were great apart from the volume was set to 11. Used to shit myself every time I selected reverse. (Used to blame the sensors, but it was a Rover)
  15. Look back at the early years of Clarkson,Hammond and May and I think the current trio are further forward as a group and are still finding their feet. Was worried last season as they seemed to be taking the banter with Chris Harris a bit too far, but have sorted that out now and all seems fair.
  16. BBC obviously agree as they will be moving to BBC1. Was announced the other morning on BBC breakfast. They are hoping to get same timeslot/day but they dont know.
  17. Some light reading for you from the Rover 75 forum. Have a read through this thread which gives all the info on how to fit it, worth reading from around post #79 onwards http://www.the75andztclub.co.uk/foru...bh+text&page=8 Also my FBH retrofit thread where you can see where I put the GSM relay unit. http://www.the75andztclub.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=230123
  18. Basically it should work automatically in weather/temp like this. As its a diesel that takes ages to warm up, this kicks into life below 4 degrees (I think) and you get heat virtually straight away The heater is this bit in front of the battery, that's the exhaust vent for it, There is a separate pump by the rear wheel arch, but all cars I believe have wiring/pipework installed. Its just if it has these two parts as well. If not its almost plug and play. Some of the later ones had timers in the central armrest, but believe these can also be retro fitted.
  19. Just watched while waiting to pick daughter up from school. Noticed that it has the webasto pre heater installed which is a great piece of kit (if it's working) but then that's something else to fix/next video
  20. Yep, the escargo will probably be finished first.
