Re: Range Rover L322 Experience

I had a 3.6TDV8 for a year / 15k miles in about 2014. It was atrocious, bits fell off (literally, both of the motorised side steps fell off at different times), and overall it was so poorly engineered I swore then I would never have another LR product. Mr Rolfe had a late one so may chip in with som...

Re: New garage door - any supplier recommendations?

Daly Garage Doors fitted my sectional doors and electric openers about 5 years ago, been really happy with them, not had any issues. They are based in East Kilbride but says they cover the whole of Scotland so might be worth a look if you are struggling to find someone. https://www.dalygaragedoors....

Re: Driving to Morocco??

Philthy has summed up our trip pretty well, but I’d still go - even just for the photo opportunities!

Roads were, on the whole, in horrendous condition but i thought it was fun and friendly. But then when people saw us getting out that smart car, everyone was friendly.

Re: Anyone out there?

Still think back to the olden days; lots of fun had in Lotii over the years. Shug’s post on the other thread hit the nail on the head for me. Sliding about in a Merc 124 cabriolet at the moment when I get some peace and quiet from the kids :lol:

Re: Winter tyres. Discuss.

Noticed this too, my van (119 vito) is an absolute drift machine the last few days on the winters with warmer greasy roads.

Re: Silver s1 - Houston -T430

Big thanks to Jonathan for being geeky enough to identify an S1 number plate plinth floating in a very large puddle. The foolishness to go fishing for it and the compulsive Lotus hoarding disorder to keep it in his garage for nearly a year.......all that for a bottle of plonk :) If nothing, the spa...

Re: NC500 Bad Press

I read an article the other day about someone who has repeatedly been leaving nails scattered about on certain parts of the route. Insane.

Re: Garage Floors

They have been down for about 18 months and I’ve had no problems. The tiler that did it does work for me through the business so I know they were stuck down properly as that’s the main variable. From memory I cleaned the concrete floor and brushed it out and then the tiles went straight down onto a ...

Re: Garage Floors

I used the Dotti tiles from https://www.directtilewarehouse.com/dot ... oor-tiles/

Look great and have been ideal. I don't do much working on cars on them though so can't comment on that aspect, but plenty do.
