General Discussion Area / Big vote tomorrow.
« on: 14 January 2019, 17:00:48 »
I have a sneaking suspicion Theresa will get this 'watery Brino' through parliament.

I'm wondering if some MP's are starting to lose their nerve with all this talk of 'No Deal being the end of the world'.

Should be interesting. :)

General Car Chat / Baggy leather seats.
« on: 13 January 2019, 11:30:14 »
The Tata has barely 14000 miles beneath her wheels but the leather front seats have become quite 'baggy' of late. My old XFR was sold with 50,000 miles on the clock and the seats were still nice and tight. 

I did 'cure the problem' by spending 20 minutes with a hair dryer. This made the leather properly taut again but only for a couple of days.

Any ideas for a permanent fix?

The Christmas smiley is finally dead. :y

Well done TB. :y

I may make a  new 'sexy Shami' avatar just for you. :)

General Car Chat / PCP question.
« on: 04 January 2019, 10:06:10 »
Who decides the amount of equity available at the end of a PCP deal?*

*Presumably this will not apply to lorry fuel cars which are probably worth less than the GFV.   

General Car Chat / PCP GFV question?
« on: 03 January 2019, 12:29:31 »
If, for example, the GFV is 34000 after 2 years, but the car is worth around 45-47000, can the excess be used for anything other the the deposit on another PCP/finance deal?

General Car Chat / Alfa?
« on: 01 January 2019, 12:54:30 »
Does anyone have experience, or an opinion, on the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio?

General Discussion Area / Trite shite.

I see the Christmas smiley has arrived.

General Car Chat / 12p a litre.
« on: 16 December 2018, 16:04:36 »
Having just filled the Tata with petrol I noticed it to be 12p a litre cheaper than lorry fuel. :y

Even Momentum 99 which I buy when available was 7p a litre less.

I see this as God's way of saying he made a mistake when he 'created' derv, and is now trying to put things right. :)

It seems nobody likes the BRINO deal put forward by the PM.

Equally, It seems nobody really likes the good old fashioned 'f*uck you Europe' hard brexit put forward by the minister for Victorian England JRM.

We may as well put STMO's whippet in charge of negotiations. :)


General Car Chat / Oil consumption of old cars.
« on: 19 November 2018, 14:37:47 »
I've just finished reading a road test of a 1963 Mini Cooper S with a 1071cc engine.

Oil consumption was 135 miles per pint. :o :o :o :o

Why did old cars use so much oil?

"best to keep a couple of pint bottles of oil in the door pockets" they said.

General Car Chat / Self parking car in 1933
« on: 19 November 2018, 14:03:08 »
Nothing new under the sun.

The car is a Packard. :y

General Discussion Area / 21 today.
« on: 25 October 2018, 15:01:52 »
.....well 21 yesterday actually. :)

General Car Chat / Only twelve.
« on: 21 October 2018, 12:36:19 »
........Omega for sale on Autotrader.

It seems only yesterday the number was 100 or more. :)

General Discussion Area / The new Doctor Who.
« on: 17 October 2018, 15:29:49 »
Perhaps I'm a dinosaur but I can't help but feel that having a woman as 'The Doctor' is fundamentally wrong.

I mean, how can a girlie be a Time Lord?......The clue is in the word 'Lord'

I suppose the Tardis will need to be painted pink in a future episode. ::)

It's fine for The Doctor to have a pretty female assistant. A girl to help out with any chores and to scream when a bug-eyed alien gets hold of her, but it is political correctness gone mad to have a woman playing the lead role.

Whatever next?......a female James Bond followed by a black female James Bond so as not to upset anyone.   

General Car Chat / Decided to cancel Jag insurance with Admiral
« on: 15 October 2018, 16:52:17 »
........which is due by 6th November.

In isolation I was pleased with a figure of 278.

However, an email this morning from my old chums at Saga came up with a like for like figure of 20 petrol from any Texaco garage.

Took about 20 minutes sort. :)

Now who will be the first to call me a tight bastard? ::)
