  1. I couldn't give a shite about the phones themselves. It's the owner's ability to work their ownership into every conversation that gets on my tits... As the joke goes: "How do you know if someone has an iPhone?" "They'll tell you." Ba-dum-tssh!

    Ford had a plant in Cork. Apparently productivity was shocking. Quality was crap too - it was the reason my Dad swore off Fords. Story goes that, per employee, it took them a week to make the same amount of Cortinas as the German plant was putting out in a day... Everybody was doing CKD: Citroen, Mercedes, Renault, Rootes. The good old days of protectionism...

    Not looking too good, is it?
  4. How about a used oil filter? The autoshite way...
  5. All you Apple loving cunts can fuck right off. I'm gonna get one of these JCB android phones and use it to bash iProduct owner's skulls in. Oh wait, this isn't the GOM/P thread.
  6. It's not a 55 plate, it's M155 HJW - 2000 Ford Fiesta LX TD
  7. Something funny going on there - I thought those shitboxes were outlawed back in 2003? Must be something to do with why it's registered as an ACPETITE?
  8. This renewal fee bollocks seems to be a new thing this year on my renewal, and my wife's which is with a different company. Most likely they're hoping people don't notice it or question it. Same as adding on legal protection without asking...
  9. Damn that Crown Vic's expensive. Thought they were 250bhp though?
  10. http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/htdocs/m4s06000201.htm Driver and front passenger door have to open from inside and outside. Rear passenger doors have to open from outside "using the relevant control". So if you took off the door handle the relevant control is no longer there, and you pass??
  11. What the man said... And fuck Pistonheads - it's full of VW Golf-driving Herberts pretending they know about cars.
  12. I like the way they called a fuck off mobile phone mast the "Rhyl Sky Tower". They should've called it the "We-won't-get-planning-permission-for-our-mast-unless-we-come-up-with-a-tourist-angle Tower"
  13. AX GT500. I think I might buy this. Not for €700 though... Needs that stupid bonnet scoop and 6x9's gone. http://www.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/3777830 XM tat. http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/3755385 '84 Prelude http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/3813226 Fancy Punto, errr Ypsilon. http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/3631714 Check out this piece of shit. Speedo goes to 85, which says it all really. http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/3079148 I've seen this one before somewhere... http://www.tradecarview.com/used_car/ja ... /10685231/ Oh yeah, I remember now:
  14. Yeah whatevar. Knock yourself out...
  15. From now on, can we keep all the "doctor deals" in the eBay Bargains thread where they belong? Arguing about whether he's a robbing wanker or not is shitting up this excellent thread. Same as last time really...
  16. Renault 21 Savanna Gtd by kenjonbro, on Flickr
  17. If you looked up "grey" in the Oxford English Dictionary you'd see a photo of a VW Golf. Most likely a 1.4 base model with wind-up windows and a cassette deck, even though it's 2012. And the owner would have paid £800 extra for the oversized GTi wheels.
  18. To quote Ron Burgundy: Yep, the last time I went to an optician the gouging prick charged me £180 for Gant frames - same ones online: 100 dollars from framesdirect.com (and not some chinese no-name website) I must have been having an off day cos I usually price-check the shit out of stuff...
  19. What he said. It doesn't matter that it's a 27 year old car. And eBay isn't an auction in the traditional sense of an auction: The buyer's contract is with the seller, not the "auction house". So any bollocks about auction items being sold as seen is just that - bollocks. And if the seller is a trader, SOGA applies - we all know this. Flowery item descriptions about Mrs Boggins driving to the Bridge Club with the vicar once a week don't count for shit.
