Going up the M1 last night, around the MK area. Personal plate of some form..

.. but then I thought "Nah, can't be. It's only doing 70 and it's in the middle lane." ;) ;D

10k miles is absolutely sod all... I only work four days a week and do 12k just commuting  ::)

How are the miners' strikes and rolling blackouts back there in the 1970s?  :P ;)

At the time of posting there was no mention of fatalities.

Hindsight and all that...

Indeed, at the time I posted, nobody knew what had happened. We'll all be old one day (some of us already are), so I take back the shooting.

You jest, but the stupid handheld ones can easily get the wrong direction after stopping for any reason, eg traffic, and won't correct until its convinced of direction of movement.  During this time, it can give duff instructions.  They should be banned.

Sat nav did try to have me go the wrong way down what I suspect might have been a one way street, yesterday, detouring through St Albans to avoid carnage on the M1. But, not being a blithering idiot, I ignored it and took notice of the road markings, instead.

No, the answer is to build and maintain the latest EMU's to a far higher standard so the chances of them breaking down is relagated to "rare". ;)

Right. So we can neatly file that under "Never going to happen because profits" and move on. Next!

Try Aviva via cashback. You should get around 60 cashback.  ;)

And if you go direct it's 60 cheaper than the cashback site, so cashbackis say 160, direct is 100,,,  no savings,, Always go direct and try comparison sites, then cashback..

My renewal was the same direct as would have been using topcash, with cash back  Be careful out there.

Alongside the Omega i have a Vectra C 1.8VVT. Once brought up to scratch it's clean, safe, comfy, reliable and rust free, just has those damn annoying column stalks and cracked springs. Cracked springs are easy to sort, just don't buy OE or pattern springs when they go because they'll just go again. Replace with Eibach pro-kit, do the job once.

I also have 2 astra G's, a 1.7 CDTi which cost 420 and again needed bringing up to scratch and a EGR delete to sort out the emissions and a thorough cleaning of the inlet manifold but is otherwise fine and reliable. I also have a 1.6 twinport picked up for 250 on ebay which should cost about another 250 to finish sorting and so far has also been utterly reliable too. Rusty brake pipes and rear arches are the only non mechanical gripes.

All of them have done 100K+ miles and they all work perfectly. Nothing wrong with Vauxhalls that are properly maintained. Factor in lack of maintenance when you buy them and there's no issue.

My October '52 was Euro3  ;)

But you're correct re MY2003, as detailed in the brochure, although I don't recall the auto being Euro 4 according to VX :-\

That said... Information correct at time of going to press etc ;)
