  1. need a new rear light for the van. Buy one on ebay, it's a Euro one without fog light provisions, bit of a waste of time, but I get a refund. Buy a pair once I'm sure they're right, ebay man spends forever messing with invoice to try and make it work since the postage was set to freight, I ended up Paypaling him the money and he promises to get them sent on friday. The seller has now cancelled the sale on ebay and gone quiet, so it's looking like he's decided to scam me despite being a well regarded business for old VWs. It's £40 you tragic wanker. I just want to MOT my van.

    More tax

    Shame. I do the same, but it takes ages for Royal Mail to bother delivering letters these days and some definitely go missing. It's fine, but just one more thing to go wrong and just feels unnecessary in 2024.

    More tax

    I do wish they'd stick it on the fuel, I'd probably pay about the same as I do a fair amount of miles, but it would stop good cars getting scrapped simply because no-one wants to pay the tax. Doesn't seem very environmental to me. I will have to be a bit smarter in sorning cars when I'm not using them. If you pay 12.months by direct debit then sorn part way through do they put your money back in your account rather than sending a bloody cheque?

  5. Been out of the die-cast game for a bit, but I've made a couple of recent additions.
  6. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/256438410299 Apparently someone saw the clean lines of the E3 as a problem to solve.

  8. Performance petrol 4-pot , post-2001 with rusty sills, I'm going Mazda Mazda Mazda6 MPS.
  9. Tesla Cybertruck Genius edition: Large screens mounted front and rear showing a variety of Elon tweets and quotes. Honda Accord Ion: Bendy bus type mechanism in the middle. BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer Nan Poorer: It's £5k more than a regular one, but instead of a wireless phone charger it's got a place for your knitting needles
  10. I'd turn my 645 into a sort of CSL £3k for the car £1k wheels/tyres £500 brake upgrade (4 piston calipers from an F30) £2k Interior upgrades (Cobra Nogaros (re-trimmed, throw away rear seats and some i-drive crap etc) £1k LSD and new hardware to suit £1500 suspension Eibach springs/Bilstein shocks/Meyle HD arms etc. £1k various engine refresh bits (maybe a remap if any funds left)
  11. I've got to build it myself and I put the R pack on it so I can really ruin my spine for those 250k miles. In 1995 I'm having an Impreza Series McRae at £23k
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/355288205870 I love this.

  14. I've been avoiding Smyth's, so as to not be tempted by the fancy stuff, only for Sainsbury's to trip me up.

  17. It's coupe day today. The 240 is quite disappointing for a semi-premium, but the other two make up for it.
  18. That insignia wagon looks very much like my real one. As much as I like the idea of that being the only vehicle I own that I have a model of, I don't think I actually want it.
  19. Rectified another of BMW's mistakes Family hatch Sports coupe
  20. Couple of members of the "Travelling community" came down my tiny close yesterday and it's got me rather nervous. They started with the old we'll do your driveway chat (very keen to get on the property to give a quote, they've switched to offering resin, how modern) "Is your Mummy or Daddy in? I want to speak to the organ grinder not the monkey" I presume trying to size me up a bit since I'm clearly in my mid-30s. "Quiet round here isn't it? How long have you lived here?" "Is your neighbour in? Before pounding on their door to ask if they want their back yard clearing and finally "Do you want to sell the van for cash?" I was blunt, but civil, since they know where I live, but perhaps I should've told them where to stick it. Now I'm going to have to keep the van blocked in order to sleep. Brilliant.
  21. Nice, I love my Ultra Hots. I'm keen for the BMW, GTO and TR6 if anyone spots any.
  22. 930 looks great. 190E seems a bit lacking for a premium?
  23. Phwoar., that's a handsome car. Always liked them best in pre-facelift guise. Tailpipe looks like it could use a bit of a trim.
