General Car Chat / Britain's diesel scandal.
« on: 09 April 2018, 19:25:02 »
8 PM Channel 4.

Another kicking for diesel perhaps. ::)

General Car Chat / I believe TB owns a black pussy.

Could this be him after one beer too many?... :)

General Discussion Area / Perusal of OOF terms and conditions.

 Page 72.....paragraph 3.....and I quote.

"All forum members who contribute 20,000 posts or more will be entitled to a Vauxhall motor car of their choice, free of charge". No exceptions.

Either of the humble Vauxhall models in the video below will suffice.

So, get your finger out TB. I may be all goodness and light but I have a litigious nature. :)

Shall we say a maximum of 7 days for delivery to take place? :)

I've invested 100 notes in this.

It gets good reviews. What's the worst that can happen? :)

General Discussion Area / I'm watching Ant and Dec on TV.

.......actually I'm watching Dec on TV. :)

General Discussion Area / Ostrich steak.

Quite expensive at 4.99 for a mere 300g, but I thought I'd give them a try.

Any experience, any good?

General Discussion Area / For the first time in 18 months....
« on: 30 March 2018, 11:55:06 »
.......I gave away 470 ml of my 'lifeforce' yesterday. I quite enjoyed it. :)

No 'fainters' for entertainment this time though. :-\

General Car Chat / Mighty Signum fails MOT.

Broken coil spring (front drivers side)
Broken coil spring (rear passenger side)

Broken exhaust bracket. :-\

How much labour? Cost of parts?

Well we certainly gave those untrustworthy continentals a bloody nose. They'll know better than  to mess with us again. :)

So when we LEAVE......First there is the little matter of forty thousand million pounds that we have to pay. How many Boris buses is that? ::)

And we will need to continue to pay EU contributions if we want access to the single market. As far dark foreign johnnies 'creeping in' no change there. All welcome under EU law.

And after we LEAVE we will still have to follow all EU laws but have no say in making them. The ECJ will still decide for us.

Last but not least they'll be stealing all our fish. I'm sure British fishermen will be happy. :D

I can't help thinking that Brexit will be so 'watered-down' as to be almost meaningless.

Roll on 2021.......unless the transition period is extended for another 2 years. ::)


General Discussion Area / I feel sorry for Jim Bowen
« on: 15 March 2018, 15:49:15 »
Any other day he might have received more coverage when he dropped off the perch.

The news started with 10 minutes on Mr Hawking's life and death. There was then a brief 10 second slot about and old boy who only knew three words, those words being  Super...smashing...great. There then followed another 10 minutes on Stephen Hawking.

Never mind, Jim. Life can be so unfair. ;) :D

General Car Chat / Call from Jaguar dealer.
« on: 08 March 2018, 14:08:50 »
"We've just performed a health check on your car" she enthused.


"The driver side wiper is smearing the screen. We can replace it for 47. Would you like us to do that?"

" No thanks"

I have a pair of brand new Bosch Aerotwin which I've been meaning to fit. They cost about 20 and they want to charge 47 for fitting one wiper....... :( :( :(

I wonder how many people actually fall for this?. Mainly women on their own, I imagine.

General Car Chat / Picturee of derv Jag.
« on: 08 March 2018, 12:13:06 »
She is going back today. Nice car to drive.

Price reduced to 24995 in you are so minded. :)

General Car Chat / If you fancy a Harley Davidson.......
« on: 07 March 2018, 19:33:55 » buy it sooner rather than later.

General Car Chat / New Jag for the next 24 hours.
« on: 07 March 2018, 17:52:49 »
I'm clearly going out of favour.... :'(

I started with a 2017 AWD  F-Type 5.0 SC followed by another F-Type 5.0 SC, only this time with all 550 BHP going to the rear wheels. :y

Then came a 2017 300 BHP XFS 3.0 derv. This time I have a 2017 2.0 XE (180) derv in poverty spec. :-\

Still, the service is only costing 225, which seems quite reasonable and probably not much more than it would cost to service  Mrs STMO's new Astra.

I have to say the XE is lovely to drive but.......

Sounds like he is describing 'gap-toothed bounder' Terry Thomas.......or perhaps TB.
