probably more interest in the manual  8) ones that have sprung up on ebay

My 2.6CD came with a manual box. I didn't like it.

Rumour has it the manual box for the Omega is lifted straight from a 1950's lorry. ::)

Well, the good news is that the few Omega left are now worth mega bucks......oh, hang on. :-\

The most expensive is a 2002 2.2 CD for £1695 :o :o :o.......I doubt the queue will be very long. :)

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
I'm sure once I get around to my 3.5hrs of being patronised, I'll be a reformed character, and drive at 50....


You could listen and maybe learn something. Even if it's a better understanding of why some drivers are so bad at it. Over a third of the attenders of the course I did were advised that they should have an eye test from a quick look at the test chart. A third!!! There were several people who correctly identified fewer than 15 out of 40 roadsigns. The reaction-time test was an eye opener terrifying.
Never did anything like that on my course. Just tried to make you feel guilty, had a cup of tea, then tried to make you feel guilty some more. It finished quite early as it was a Saturday morning and I think everyone was ready for a rest.  ;D

I paid the fine as the awareness course was miles away.

At least I didn't get to be lectured by a spotty 18 year old.

That white estate looks clean... Rusty underneath though and MoT length makes it about £1,100 too expensive...  :-\

Looks like plod to me. Exactly like mine except my car had the 3.2 V6.

when you don't have a disc in the window anymore it could have been a genuine error. I genuinely thought one of my cars was MOT'd, it was only when I wanted to tax it earlier this year, that I realised its MOT had run out about 10 months previously.  :-[ :-[

I agree.......and still have a tax disc.


Car tax dodgers and the loss of revenue are far more common since the demise of the tax disc.

The extra revenue raised from the double taxing of cars when they are bought and sold probably makes up for this. ::)




The government wouldn't stoop so low. ::) ::) ;)

Dropped off 2 old ones, picked up a new one :D :D :D

To quote Noddy Holder......It's Christmas. :y :D :D :D

If the size of the tissue is reduced to less than 'man size' then teenage boys will need more to 'clean up' with.

.........or use their socks. :)

I'm pretty sure most of the complaints came from beard-growing feminists and limp-wristed mangina.

Such people seems to be constantly looking for ways to be offended and outraged. :-\

The Saudis have now released a statement to say he died during/following a fight which broke out in the embassy[investigations still ongoing to ascertain who was involved and why]Trump has said this explanation is "credible".

Utter boll*cks....... ;D ;D ;D

kieenex are having to stop selling tissues that are advertised as " man size " as they are deemed to be sexist.  ???

Is this for real or is it April 1st? :-\

Wouldn't  we be better off long term with hydrogen fuel cell rather than electric cars ...............which have been about since the end of the Victorian era?

Fortunately Brexit is running smoothly so we may not even notice the transition. ::) ::)

The cost of doing business  :-\

Give it a week and it will be business as usual.

The 'outrage' will be no more than a distant memory.
