Re: Snow

Oh heck. Lady Poppy is with her dad this weekend in Shrewsbury. Lets hope the snow does not move too far east or she'll have a rubbish journey home tomorrow, which will be terrible. If she's...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Sounds horrible Chris, and I know what you all mean about the money drain at this time of year. Lady Poppy's car needs four new tyres (two are near the wear limit and the rears have plugs in them,...

Re: Photo Comp - Chat Thread

I have been trying, honest, but it turns out I'm not that good/keen on street photography. Last weekend there were lots of folk at a pavement cafe which would have made a perfect shot but I only had...

Re: The All New Megathread

Bring back the Duffs, and the Peds for branch line working!

Re: Random Main dealer estimate!

Agree with the do it yourself comments but appreciate it's not always easy to do without a shed, garage or driveway. I used to do mine when I had a Curvy and it was dead easy with a Carbtune.

Re: Reaction Engines

Perhaps they should bolt one on to Bloodhound - another project I keep half an eye on and am very glad to see is back up and pushing the speed boundaries.

Re: World's Smallest Mudguard award goes to...

The front 'guard on the Speed Twin is equally short and lacking in protection qualities. Fitting an extender to it would look silly as it would have to be very long to be effective.

Re: what lies beneath

I rather hope you don't have any gremlins getting in to your wiring as any qualified Sparks would have to rectify all of that highly dubious rats nest as part of any fix, however minor.

Re: Is it normal to pay in advance?

I was shocked to be told I had to pay the balance owing on a car I'd paid a deposit on three days before going to pick it up. Considering they were meant to repair a dent first to my satisfaction I...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

This is why I always work through an agency - it makes me more expensive to the client but the agency has to pay me regardless of when the client pays them. Not surprisingly I only work for well...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Almost a gripe of the day. Arrived at the Ford dealer this morning to pick up my new (well, 7 month old) Focus only to find it seemed to be covered in stone chips. It's a smile as the look of utter...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Nearly had that with a car I ended up not buying. Something in my head said, no, it's more than you set out to pay even if it is within budget. My inner accountant I suppose (to go with the outer...
