They're very comfy imo. Apart from the new high speed trains whose seats are like sitting on an ironing board.

I agree.  Not as comfy as they were, and Detachis are fucking dire, but still passable for the most part. 

My train is 20 minutes late thanks to a trespasser, and I have a 30 minute connection to make in Birmingham. 😬

I would post something like

but it's not really funny when it's true.

Have you ever had problems with the insurance companies when you change cars with them every 72 hours?

I recall some other chronic shiters have been accused of being car dealers and had insurers refuse them any more changes in a policy year.

Nice!  Giffer owned, one assumes, given the mileage and condition?

Mostly giffer. Logbook says 2 previous keepers so I'm the 4th. Service book is stamped to 16k. 

 

Feels like it needs a good drive to loosen up a bit. Off to find dinner.

I'm near Brum now. Had a quick bite but I'm going to find something proper. 

Pop up to Uttoxeter. I've got a massive roast chicken in the oven.  ST14 7JJ you'll spot the house. White GTC astra outside.

That's an offer and a half, I've only just seen this. Alas I was utterly knackered to the point I couldnt drive any more, so I found the nearest Wetherspoons. Just off the M5 in Halesowen a mere six miles from the services I was at. And free parking outside!

What’s the plan Ghostrider? Hope they’re different sexes and start a breeding programme? 

This one's mine - the Prelude has serious potential for ruin so needs to go, especially considering I got it in a deal that benefitted me, and that was my only reason for accepting it.

Despite being the same spec as my mum's, just a bit newer, the spec is different. 

Both have electric windows and heated electric mirrors, mum's one has a sunroof, a Honda branded radio and central locking. 

Mine has no sunroof, no central locking, aircon, a centre armrest, and a Pioneer radio...

Not got there yet, it's not always the same policy I'm switching or starting so they don't notice too much. 

I use Admiral by default unless Performance Direct/Grove & Dean will quote it as they offer me £2-300 insurance on classics. For moderns that Admiral won't touch I go Esure. 

I randomly got a renewal email from Confused for a Peugeot 306 (possibly the estate I had?), and it was something utterly reasonable like £350.
