A long time ago, in a Galaxie far far away

Right. NO GALAXIE UPDATES...yet...

Crashed the Jag by sliding it slowly into a kerb in the snow and bent the subframe mounts. Chalk it down, buy winter tyres next time. You can see where the force of the hit shook off all of the shitey slush.

Absolutely gutted because I really liked it and so did my missus. Subframes are cheap, fitting them is not. There's a mysterious new oil leak, a buggered engine mount and the air suspension was down. I may try get this fixed.

Volvo had its work done and has full MOT:

New pads and discs all around.

ARB drop links

Radiator fan working as expected

No error codes


Insight now has full MOT as well. Needs protecting from the salt though. Some advisories for minor crust to things like the Matiz rear springs. It is an excellent backup car 

I also found some old pics of my ex-cars






Including the time I found a lock knife hidden in an Octavia I bought

Liked for the MOT successes and not the Jag subframe. At least it was just a kerb and you don't have an insurance claim for sliding into another car. Something similar happened to me 5 years ago and I considered it a success being able to get a tiny amount of steering input and pilot my out of control car between the two parked cars it was heading for and into a wall! Some damage to my car, the wall survived and no insurance claim.
