  2. Used to collect loads of models as a lad and thought I'd kicked the habit, but this thread is a bad influence.

  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/325130535525 Have you always wanted a Focus 1.8, but with the power of a 2.0 and a rear spoiler that basically turns it into a McLaren F1?
  5. They definitely didn't plan on anyone ordering it without tints. What a mess.

  13. Got £325 collected for the Golf the other week. I'd rather it was worth naff all and there was more interesting sub £1k cars about, but not sure that'll change any time soon.

  15. I've had a few estates and loved them LL Merc 300TE 4MATIC - A lovely thing with the very rare 4Matic 4WD system and nearly every box ticked. It was over £50k new in 1992 (or about the same as the average house). Volvo V70 T5 Manual - Properly quick, bit rough around the edges and loads of space. Golf 1.9 TDI Bluemotion - Comfortable, economical, but has become a complete pain in the arse recently so will most likely be going over the bridge. Astra 1.3 CDTI Life - The latest addition and so far it seems like a basic, but likeable thing
  16. @95 quid Peugeot answered my plea for cheap practical motoring with this belonging to a work mate of his. It's a 1.3 CDTI in bASe 'Life' spec which presumably references a prison sentence, given most cells will be more lavishly equipped. I'm slightly disappointed it still has fancy electric front windows, but you can't have it all. It goes surprisingly well for a 1.3 estate, and the drive back across the width of the country was nice and easy. The wheel trims are going in the bin as soon as I can be bothered to cut them free.
  17. That is lovely in those colours and on Winter wheels. A set of original rear lights and it'd be perfect.

  20. My Golf came with a set of Alliance tyres (a Yokohama brand apparently) and they seem perfectly decent. Not a single moment, but then it's hardly a performance car. Nexen Nferas seemed decent on my E39 too, wouldn't have been my choice, but hard to fault. I'm a fan of Hankook generally, my 290+bhp 9000 Aero was much improved by a set, turning it from a wheel spinning machine into a proper rocket.
  21. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/194445405100 I'm in love.

  23. Interesting. Any more details? Can't see much mention of it online. The gear change is definitely a bit crap, but the handling is surprisingly decent. No real feel, but it turns in well and the suspension seems nicely sprung/damped. Gave it a much needed service today. Didn't get the fuel filter changed before rain stopped play, but glad I got the rest done.

    Winter tyres

    Never had any before, but the Vectra came on a set of Michelin Alpins. Given that they're now 10 years old they've probably hardened up into some performance summer tyres now though (I assume that's how it works)
  25. Thanks, It's a genuine 70s Gitane Super Pista (well the frame is). Ouch, that's not ideal. I don't do many short journeys so hopefully no issues here. It does need a proper service, but it runs really nicely. It definitely doesn't look great whereas the dash design I think is very smart and perhaps even elegant.
