Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

Some years ago we had a very modest house. but no mortgage. A good business deal meant we were in a position to move quite a bit upmarket. We spotted a couple of properties in an area we liked both with the same estate agent. He wouldn't let me view them. Discouraged me on every house I asked about. Didn't want my contact details. He couldn't take on board the price range jump.

I bought the house I wanted via a different agent, and 18 years later refused to consider using the same agent when I sold. Never pre-judge people. I now have a small business, and I'm always surprised at who spends the most.

The Quattroporte GTS on Top Gear did sound rather nice.  8)
Quattroporte, meaning..........four doors. Very exotic  ;D

There’s nothing I like better than putting on my thickest Scouse accent when ringing anyone in authority, they can’t wait to put the phone down, I can tell. But I won’t let them.  :)

One of the wealthiest men I've ever known used to always dress like he'd just been digging the garden. He ran his own successful business & drove a Rolls Royce.

As would I......although like Mr Bitz I'm not of sound mind. :) :)

Oh . . . . is there such a thing as a "thin" Scouse accent then ?    ;D

One of the wealthiest men I've ever known used to always dress like he'd just been digging the garden. He ran his own successful business & drove a Rolls Royce.

I know a fella who is in his late 50's, about 20 stone, looks as though he buys his clothes from charity shops, could do with a good scrub etc, and goes round in a rusty Citreon Berlingo van.  ::)

I know that he owns and rents out about 50 odd houses!  :y

There's a saying, something along the lines of  . . . .

"Rich people stay rich by spending like they're poor

Poor people stay poor by spending like they're rich"



I can personally think of two people in the past, flash cars, big houses, bimbo wives (also with flash cars) etc. Both went bust, one actually did a runner owing lots of cash.

I used to have a mate who was in the scrap metal business who loved people judging him by his scruffy appearance, always paid for everything in cash , was with him in 1975 when he bought a new XJ6 for himself and a Rover 2200 for his missus , the salesman's face was a picture!
