Re: What did you do today?

No you didn't, I thought the Jag was staying. It was a lovely beast & I never got to see it. I thought it was too and I was going to tax the thing and start using it, sadly circumstances didn't permit. It also turned out the fucker had been clocked at some point. I got decent money for it but I've ...

Re: Crash! Bang! Wallop!

Always good to see coppers actually running these fuckers off the road and not just citing H&S and letting them free.

Bullbars a fair point, they'd save on vehicle repairs - and hurt!

Re: What did you do today?

I somehow buggered up my job interview by answering questions 'too generically' and not having any sales experience despite the job description not requiring it, and the fact I run a bike shop c/o the owner sometimes. As such I'm still at the bike shop, and painfully skint. This unfortunately means ...

Re: Squire's voitures

I'm in agreement with Ben and the Reverend here although it was 2&3 that caught my eye, give it all a really good clean up, try wrapping the wet and dry round a piece of glass or a mirror to give a nice large flat surface, don't spend too long in any one spot - like between 1&2 as it looks like tha...

Re: What did you do today?

I did a buy. Auto or manual? If auto, get ATF changed as unlikely to have been changed due to sealed for life bollocks. Wikipedia says it's the venerable AW55 if an auto. Alright gearbox by this age if fluids changed. Volvo say filled for life, Aisin Warner said ~75k changes (iirc and can't remembe...

Re: What did you do today?

Regarding the above, it's a C30 D5. 180bhp/350nm torque. Fun fact, the TN reg is a Scottish one, the DVLA used TN07 instead of SN07, for reasons I hope are obvious. Found on Auto Trader, rang the dealer, got the train there with dad. It was in Tyseley/Small Heath (Brum), on the train from Manchester...
