Re: 508

Please accept my condolences rwb, I was unaware, that is genuinely sad to hear.

I hope the sale of the car goes ok, certainly priced to attract a buyer and hope it goes to someone who will continue to look after it well.

Best wishes in the meantime.

Re: The Price of Diesel

Seems the pez/dizzle price difference is firmly routed now.

At least 10p/ltr (or 45p/gallon in English).

Re: 508

Seems like a little gem of a car, functioning well and very economical :shock:

The advert states the owner died? I am confused as I thought this was rwb's car?

I'm sure VW could get in there too with the most VW's in a carpark. Or airfield, or whatever...

Welly in the Guinness Book of Records

Last Sunday I took part in 'Volvo600' at that Bruntingthorpe proving ground (famous Airfield). The aim was to break the current World Record of the most Volvo's in convoy in the same place. Current record is 600-something and we* achieved 1537! I was car number 1128, they'll be some drone-type foota...

Re: Driving in that London? check your car meets the ULEZ

Our DV6 doesn't comply so I'm guessing all 406's are effectively barred from central London on the basis of cost. Shockingly, in Oct 2020 they're increasing the "zone" to the whole of greater London (anywhere inside the North and South Circular) so lots of car owners will be buggered in 18 months ti...
