Re: Covid-19 Lockdown

Millie and I have had fun building stuff in teh past. I think the best was a trebuchet, i wanted to make a desktop one, but I'm rubbish with carpentry so I made one about 4 foot high to throw apples. We had great fun and might have accidentally done some maths along the way. (This was when Millie wa...

Re: Best hot hatch for £10k

Maybe this could have been a contender https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-spottedykywt/--163-10k-208-gti-by-peugeot-sport---spotted/41411 Keep on forgetting that the less well know hot hatches will lose a fair bit of depreciation, but at 30k miles and 10k seems a good buy. Added bonus that it won'...

Like a 4 year old girl with the latest my little pony on the way from prime!

Looks tremendous. When it arrives and you’re looking for excuses to drive it you can just do a tour of SE members homes to show it off!
A superb idea, the "Tea and biscuits" tour of Scotland.

Re: Tyre fitting

Abbotsnch have supplied and fitted loads of tyres for me. They are good folk to deal with, the fitters are normally OK but the Exige needed a very narrow socket which they had to borrow. They also scratched one of the Exige wheels but they were ace about it and arranged to get it re-done (everyone c...

Re: £100k garage

Having read the "grand day out" thread,

New plan needs a better Elise.

Campbell's Elise, say 20k.

T6 30k

Model 3 50k.

Re: Dreaded Clutch Problem (Sport350)

My experience with the FSO is so good that my MP has offered to ask the minister responsible a question in parliament.

I am VERY pleased with this idea but we actually got a provisional judgement last week in our favour. Still no money though...

Re: Best hot hatch for £10k

AS it came up I like the i3. For motorways and citys it's nearly perfect. But it doesn't have the depth of a proper hot hatch, the chassis is too limited by its traction control. (Amongst other things)

Re: Best hot hatch for £10k

What about an i3? You will easily win the traffic light starts. :lol: It’s not so good at handbrake turns with the electric handbrake though. Fuel bills would be most welcome and the mp/charge should keep you happy. Steve. Electric residuals too unproven yet. Certainly would look at it. Anytime...

Re: Best hot hatch for £10k

Wow. Might have a winner there, Gary. Assume similar annual budget to purchase price to keep it going?! If your going to wear a medalion it has to have a complimenting chest rug. Ditch the 2.2 and go for a proper Alfa: http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201907029653600?atmobcid=soc3 Geor...
