I've started to thrash my car....a bit
« on: 11 September 2019, 20:11:11 »

This usually happens when, subconsciously, I'm trying to break it because I fancy something newer. It's something most men do from time to time, and there's no sense to it at all.
I do not need a new car, and I must tell myself that I'm being foolish. Nowt wrong with the one I've got and I wouldn't get the money for it that it's worth to me. Naughty!



But still...... ::)

Get thee behind me, Satan!  ;D

I think my 510 BHP Jaguar would be the ideal car for a 'young stud about town' like your good self.

26500 will secure it. I very nearly sold it yesterday.

How much of a hit would you be taking at that price?

I've seen an 05 Range Rover L322 4.4V8 petrol with an lpg kit on it at a very good price and I'm tempted to go and have a look.  ::)

Trouble is... I know that there is no such thing as a cheap Range Rover!  ;D

Sorry, Aaron.

11500 over almost exactly 2 years ......or 110 each and every week if I wish to depress myself.

The thing is......WBAC regularly send me emails saying my car is worth X amount and I usually ignore them. However, in the last week or two they have raised their offer by almost 3000, so I thought.....hmmm.....maybe just maybe it's time for a change.


I made an appointment and drove to see them where a kid of about 19 or 20 pressed a few switches and checked the electric windows were working. He took 5 minutes tops. He then offered me 500 less because of a couple of stone chips just above the number plate. To be fair the offer was better than expected but on a matter of principle I declined the offer.

Mrs Opti will be wondering what you intend to do with your windfall. A golf R perhaps?

Not being sexist but such a car would be wasted on a woman. She would have no idea about the size of the engine or the BHP. She would simply know what the colour was.



I think we should all enjoy women for their 'cuddly and moist bits' and not expect too much when it comes to intellectual capacity.
