General Car Chat / Omega on Film 4 last night
« on: 25 January 2015, 12:48:54 »
Watched a good little British thriller last night. Only three cast members about a couple lost in rural Wales who upset a local nutter. The car was in most of the film but wasn,t sure which model but it had the boot spoiler and also colour sat nav.
The title of the film was In Fear and was quite tense in places without the OTT of Hollywood.

Had it done 11 days ago due to the car being written off as Cat C. Car has been repaired with new MOT. What i am not sure
of is will i receive another V5 document from DVLA stating that the car is Cat C? ???

General Car Chat / Insurance

Just changed my policy over to Saga. This was due to AXA loading my quote from 187 to 358 due to my car now
being a Cat C. I asked Swinton (my broker) why this much and was told that Cat C,s are classed as expensive to
insure and best they could do was a quote of 299 from another insurer. Have now paid 170 with less voluntary excess
as well. So, as said before, always shop around, especially when your circumstances change when it,s not your fault

Moved my youngest up to Gordieland on Tuesday, had good drive up. Stayed over and came back yesterday. Had to give
trucks a bit of a wide berth on the A1. one guy was pushed right over onto the hard shoulder by a strong gust. My empty
van was a bit lively at times but all in all found it great fun. Got less windy south of midlands. :y

Omega General Help / Possible writeoff?
« on: 09 November 2014, 16:05:15 »
Some numpty stopped outside the house just up the road, got out, left his handbrake off, you can guess the rest. >:(
Have two dents in boot, bumper has sprung off both sides and the cross member that is under the plastic cover just
inside the boot is deformed so i can,t shut the boot. Any thoughts and comments you have could be helpful bearing in
mind the age of the car etc. I would like to keep the car if at all possible but i suppose it depends on the insurers.

Just got back from there after having ablation for atrial fibrillation. Can honestly say that must be the best care i have
ever had  and if anyone else has to go in there, rest assured you will get the best possible care. A big :y for them :)

Just got back from Torquay via Tewkesbury and then Daventry, just over 650 miles and the Desmond didn,t
miss a beat. Was the first real long trip in this car so was a wee bit apprehensive but all went great. As said,
was well chuffed. 8)

Wife rarely drives now but today went to visit her sister. Back a few mins. later, no drive in auto box, so i got in, shoved
it in drive and drove down street fine. It appears that she put it in N and just rolled down street revving as she went.
Oh how we laughed.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Due to lack of mobility don,t get under car usually but had quick look today and was suprised  to see two pipes
on a 4pot. Am i seeing things?

Omega General Help / Coolant loss
« on: 03 May 2014, 00:36:58 »
I seem to have a slight leak, as level in expansion bottle slowly goes down, no water under car but there is coolant
spray on oil filter and on plastic under tray as well. As said it,s a very slow loss and doesn,t need much fluid to top up.
Any thoughts please. :-\
