85kg's here.  :D

0kg's muscle  ;D

Based on your reputation, I'm assuming you've gained about 25Kg in the last couple of years ;D

Yeah, when I look at Uni photos, Iím a right fat b@stard now.  ;D

Since when did washing a car prevent rot? They all rust and rot away in places that don't see a sponge.  :)

Omega General Help / Re: Astra H SRi 2.0 Turbo brakes on Omega?
« on: 11 January 2019, 10:15:55 »
The pedal is progressive, allowing smooth braking, due to type of car it is. Omega was always aimed at motorway mile muncher and allowing a smooth drive.

Stamp hard on them and it stops, MotherT always said her Omega brakes were poor, until I demonstrated that stamping on the pedal as per an emergency it stops bloody quick!

3.2 here, no complaints with brakes.

Managed to source front pair from ECP, reasonable price, £88 for pair.

Rears are available easily, but fronts harder. Still cheaper than any price I found so far.

Sounds like a lot of work, I personally prefer bog standard 3.2 with auto box.

Effortless power and an effortless drive.

Plasma eh? Is it worth maintaining such old hardware? Surely they are all very old now  :-\

Price of new hardware board could get new TV?

Really does depend who turns up, I had a new screen fitted by Autoglass on my old 2.2, no complains here.  :y

How much did you spend to get your 'free' flights?
I think you're just determined to be awkward. It's normal, everyday spending on a credit card, paid off monthly so no interest. So they really are 'free' miles.

Exactly, all my fuel, maintenance cost for cars, goes on it and it's paid off fully each month. I just use it as a debit card really, with added benefit of work expenses.

I probably buy around 5-10k's worth of work stuff per month, this gets expensed. So it really is free miles  :)

Oh and add in the cash back sites I get free money, with my free miles  :D
Ah yes, £10 for every grand spent...  ;D

But if you spend 10 grand a month and it's of no cost to me.  ;)
Aye. £100 for nowt.  :y

I just converted about that into Argos vouchers, for MrsT to use for Little MissT. So win win!

'kinell, I'm vastly overpaid and even I don't get paid £10k pcm net  :P

Ah, wait, expenses you said..  ;D

I had a mortgage review recently, he pointed out 3 or 4 payments from Sky adding up to about £10k and said is this your salary?

I should have said yes  :D  ;D

No, Visa/AMEX deal with MBNA has ended, which was a shame as AMEX was more points and work expenses took it. eg Apple products.

This one is Mastercard, with Virgin Money.

Cheers  :y

Back of a fag packet suggests that the house build could net us two business class fares to San Francisco (one that's been on the bucket list for years). Would be a nice way to celebrate finishing the project, even if it does cost a couple of hundred quid in taxes & fuel surcharge.

I found Upper Class ones pricey, we could have saved up in points I guess. But for 40k points total, we've done NYC return for both of us, I'm half way to another pair of tickets already.

You can do 4x regular flights for 1x Upper Class. Although I'm 6ft4 and economy is a real pain, literally! Rather just have more flights.

As next trip I'd like to do Vietnam  :)
