Re: and today i have mostly been...

My shortlist currently contains: BMW 218 active tourer (1.5 3-cylinder pez turbo). Merc B-Class dizzler 1.5 DCi (the dreaded Renault-Nissan engine) - although research doesn't throw up many troubles :? Merc is a bit of a compromise and I don't really like the styling so that's going on the reserve l...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

D9 goes to good home and cats settled - that's good enough news for me :D I've been looking into what to replace the C4 with :? Must be large (er), must be high seating, must be Automatic, must not dislike short journey's ......now the choices dwindle fast... Had a 'virtual' look at something last w...

Re: New 406 Owner

I kind of miss 'sh*t' cars from the 80's, that feeling of utter amazement and respect that you completed a 100 mile journey without it breaking down. The weekends of 'tinkering' to make it through the next week's commute. The vibration of the engine. The feel of non power assisted steering. My first...

Re: New 406 Owner

I've only had 1 Ford myself, a 2.0 S Cortina, looked like crap but went like stink. I remember being taken for a blast in two 2.0 S's in me yoof...they did indeed go like stink, Google suggests 97 BHP? not much by today's standards but when you factor in the low weight (mainly thanks to most of the...

Re: New 406 Owner

Not sure what the deal is with those Ford TDCi engines, you either get a really good one that's quiet and behaves itself or a shitter that sounds like a bag-o-spanners and smokes. I suspect some have seen the odd dose of Petrol on occasion which never goes down well, and maybe poor servicing routine...

Re: (Re) Uploading this old beauty.

Hi Kenny, nice to hear from you again, I remember you were a regular active poster back then - where does the time go? :shock: Sorry to hear of the economic situation, I hope things are on the way to improving for you. This Forum is very quiet now because 406 ownership is quite low now in the UK, th...

Re: Happy New err....

Not sure how to feel as we tip-toe into 2020 but my Christmas break was alright; 2 weeks off work so enough rest from that, the house slowly got tidier and cleaner, no socks for me despite needing some :roll: The Engine Light came on in the Volvo on Christmas Day (first time I've seen it) but think ...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Sorry to hear of this set back to your wider plan rwb, Christmas/NY can go and get in the Sea for all I care about it; it seems designed to wind people up. There's a lot going on in your world, it will settle of course and I hope that in 6 months you will look back and see that it was absolutely the...

New car ponderings

We're firmly into replacing the Citroen C4 early next year and so the quest begins for its successor, the reason mainly being to replace it with something larger and more comfortable for the many long journeys we seem to do now and for something with a high seating position because it's simply bette...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

New job anxiety? We're all fearful of 'being found out' aren't we? Folk in some of the highest positions worry over how they got there and if they'll ever be rumbled... One thing I've witnessed in my 30 year career is that arse holes, knob heads, bitches and cows all get the good jobs, they're not p...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

He had the botty-thermometer and it was fine...38 point something....the Vet said he "wasn't keen" on that part :lol: it cost £50.00 for the consultation and treatment, I was expecting it to be more.

I reckon it could have been a fight with another cat maybe.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

That's some bad luck Steve, hope things settle down sharpish, I agree that you can't really keep taking on new patients. I wonder if they're wandering into chez-earwig because they need help. Weirdly we had to take our oldest cat to the vets saturday morning, he's never been vets before, he was limp...
