Don't be, me and dad built it last year as was waisted space on the side of the house. Its just a posh shed. lol

but you've a large car in there with room to walk down the side. When I could get my Omega in my garage, there was just about enough room to open the door.

More changes without any notifications.  Allthough they said they have sent notification via snail mail.

The sods have swapped the 3% cash back items to 1% and vice versa. :-\

So I had my TV licence  3 Mobile bills, 2 ISP bills (mine and someone elses) a total of just 123 a month @ 3% cash back. :-\

My Water bill that was 1% (23 monthly) now earns 3% cash back. :-\



Plus I also found out the the 1.5% on the bank balance hasnt been for quite a while and is currenly 0.6% and is dropping to 0.3% in April. :-X

I used to have the 123 account with them. Originally it paid 3% on balances above 3000, 2% over 2000 & 1% over 1000 That was when I had sod all in the bank, now I have more than 3000 they pay sod all in interest!  :-\

They also seem to be showing a similarly low mileage Desmond. Not as desirable, but the only one I've ever seen in that shade of metallic blue/green

but they also have a reasonable V6 2.6 .... https://www.raccars.co.uk/car-56938636?i=2&m=vd 78000 miles is nothing

Temperature gauge is something of concern to me.

I never noticed that

Strong money but someone could haggle and then put a bit of cash into it, bushes and the like...
No MOT? If people want to sell a car why can't they get an MOT first. Since there isn't any MOT I'd assume the worst and that it needs major repairs.

It's only just out of MOT and in general it's had a reasonable pass rate. The misfire might just be a coil pack ....  :-\

20 second hand.Were over 200 from VX ten years ago.  ;)
Ah! Gotcha!  :y Makes the Citroen hedgehog comparatively cheap!  ;)

 ... and not much over 20 just replace once you have checked fan works.

Is that all? I paid around 100 for one for SWMBO's Citroen .... and it wasn't even the fault! And Citroen wouldn't have it back  :'(

Haven't checked the photo card licence but paper licence had your date of birth on it.
Hope your son gets through it OK redeliteV6. Worrying times I know as my youngest daughter and her husband were both tested positive just before Christmas,luckily it seems to have only been a mild infection for them as they're both ok.

your date of birth is incorporated within your driver's licence number  :y

The Vauxhall name is already just a badge. When you (or scum bags) remove the Griffin from the grille of an Insignia you can see the Opel Blitz as part of the moulding.

water down a can of fuel ....  ::)

sugar doesn't do fuel systems any good either ....  ::)


I liked to keep a 5l can of petrol on the recovery truck. But they continually went missing.
I cured that by filling a used** one with water and two bags of sugar.


Problem solved :y


A used can still smells of petrol even when it's full of water

 ;D ;D :y

all I can say is that the COVID ICU wards that my daughter works in are more than full ....she came home from her 12 hour shift this evening, shouted through to her Mum that she was going to shower the COVID off her and  that was it .... we've not seen her since.  :'(
