Re: and today i have mostly been...

I can still smell it. Ooh, cat poo does have a 'unique' odor :shock: One of ours can let out a small fart whilst you're playing with him, that is particularly upsetting for all involved.....we've spoken to him about his behavior and he said he doesn't care and will continue to fart without notice a...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Someone's been busy! the Boiler Room looks blooming marvelous now! Nice to see some insulation on the pipes (that's what we do that is) :oops: Glad you've shifted the old place, it makes sense before it becomes a bigger burden than it needs to be. Bailes - that's ridiculous the Doc saying he had a c...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Hello Doggy, glad you're back safe and sound. Hello Ginger whilst I'm being polite :lol: Last Sunday I did two tip-runs in the C4....loading up first time it was raining heavy and I was kinda hiding between the tailgate and our Garage door but by the second run it was properly pissing down and I jus...

Re: Whats my car worth?

Yeah I would say over a bag of sand all day long. Shame about the a/c, that's a car buyers favourite bargaining tool....... In fact, if you fixed the a/c, had the car paintwork repaired and machine polished you could literally 'big up' the sale as one of the best remaining 406's...you could see towa...

Anyone know about modern Mini's?

One of my Wife's friends has a 2011 Mini Cooper Petrol (non turbo) and has just spent a fortune on a new timing chain at a Garage. Now the car is losing water (with no visible leakage) the expansion bottle empties every few days, it's running cold all the time, and the radiator cooling fan is runnin...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

The new Defender is full of electronics and touch screens, I can't see it appealing to the sort of people who bought 'proper' defenders back in the day, I guess they've targeted those trendy hipster wankers who want to look like they're outdoor country folk when they really live in Chelsea drinking ...

Spotted any 69 plates? I've won this already

At the weekend on the M40 I saw a 69 plate Lamborghini Huracan/Aventador (excuse my lack of actual knowledge) but there it was, in White, doing about 65mph in lane 1 :supafrisk:

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

That's good that you like the C5 Peter, I take it it's a Dizzler? There's definitely something about a comfy car, I remember clearly that ladies really liked my 406 and remarked on its comfort. By comparison my Volvo's ride is HARD, especially at low speeds it's almost comical. Our C4 is pretty comf...

You're right about tyre sizes, the fashion for larger wheels and less sidewall has come at the same time as our road surfaces worsening......

Re: New car suggestions

It's official: The Citroen C5 is the new 406 8) Are there any C5 with 'interesting' petrol engines? Also, Bailes I agree totally about Cam Chains! everyone makes a big fuss saying how great they are that they never need changing but the chain stretches over time - just look at the Nissan Navara hor...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Doggy, your minor calamities sound like the sort of thin I'd do; putting something down and forgetting it......or rushing through things eager to get on the road. Good call to do a practice and the HGV training must come in very handy. Don't forget the C5's key when you go away :lol: :lol: :oops: Wi...
