Re: Optomistic or what

Vintage is the new posh. I just spend over 500 Sovs on a 20 year old amp (a nice one but still) and looking to invest* another 150-200 for a gramophone.

Re: Undecided

Yes, that model is pretty shifty - i.e. it goes! Not a lot of information on it but it seems relatively reliable.

Take pictures!

Re: Happy New Year

Yeah HNY and all that bs... not a great year for me. No babies, no new cars, close relatives passing... 2018 can't be worse.

For Sale: Polo 1.4 TDI

Apologies - non-Pug related but my good lady friend is selling her Polo, which is actually a pretty nice car. It hasn't had any issues that I know of (and she usually moans about any little mishaps!). Recent new MOT. https://www.gumtree.com/p/volkswagen/volkswagen-polo-se-tdi-pd-1.4-80-/1276597059 L...

Re: ~Tis the Season for misaligned Headlamps tra la la la la

The worst things are bikes - push and motorised variety. They simply BLIND me every time... day and night.

Re: Car in garage

Tis done. £630 labour... 2 days. But at least it won't need much beyond an oil change for the next 100k miles, which might take a while with my sub 10k miles a year driving.

Same with 406s but it's a mix again - ...

Re: Car in garage

Ouch, that's reassuringly expensive. :shock: Quite. I was shocked to find how much cheaper 2.0 HDI versions of the same parts were :shock: And 406 stuff is peanuts - relatively speaking. I really can't see how anyone's going to tell what's in your DPF. I think I could tell from he diagnostics, but ...
