Re: Cruise Control

Cheers James, just the ticket! All I need now is to save up some cash... I presume these keep appearing so I've no need to panic. I notice that, as usual, the guy only mails to the EU :twisted: so I'd have to have it posted on. Shame my brother's coming today... I see the other one he does, the 400,...

Penny drops!

Ahh, now I know why the knob-ends that used to drive up and down my road's Wren-o 5's made that weird wooshing noise! I thought they'd done something stoopid! (I even found one after one had lost control outside the fish and chip shop, damn, should have kept it).

Re: What's your favourite food?

I always thought those kebabs they heat up and slice bits off (and heat up and slice bits off and heat up...) must be extremely unhygenic, plus they smell like sweaty armpits. Then I did a job inside a place where they make them in Tottenham Hale (where's the throwing up in a bucket emoticon when yo...

Cruise Control

Hi folks, me again snooping 'round other forums. I've just been on the Lemon Ownah's Klub for the See5 - guess what, they hate Pugs! I must admit I had a giggle at some common problems -oh dear, another estate rear door glass stuck, all you need is some wire, a soldering iron, duck tape (or 400 quid...

Re: Stuff & some nonsense.

Post whore? Is it my turn in the barrel?? :shock: I don't know many people who speak much English here and I'm a bit of a dunce in the language department so there's no-one I can talk to about cars, not even my g/f, who can speak 4 languages (car not being one of them). So I'm afraid this forum and ...

Stuff & some nonsense.

Hi folks, just looking around at other forums for tips and stuff (it's that or watch Midsommer yawn Murders). Lubricate your locks! Or if your remote goes up the swanny you might find you can't get into your pride and joy. Jump starting: most cars are packed with ECUs and many of the don't take kind...
