"hunted for their scent glands" ?

Why go to all that bother when you can go out on the lash and find your own interestingly-scented beaver :supafrisk:

Re: That COVID - How's it affected you?

You'd think testing Teachers would be a priority; at least a weekly test and an Antibody test. Kids schooling is properly ruined this year I feel very sorry for them and the families, not to mention their forced breaks from friends etc. what a mess. And to top it all Turkey's are now dropping like f...

My missus has just had a negative Antibody test result, not something to feel positive about. See what I did there.

Re: That COVID - How's it affected you?

Mr Magic - sorry to hear about Mrs_Magic - she'll be alright though eh. There must be loads of people who are going around the community feeling 'ill' but not realising what it is - especially in winter. And also loads of people who test positive but can't/won't isolate. Ideally Mr Magic should get ...

Re: Insurance "Black Box" draining battery.

Rumor has it that, once opened, an insurance Black Box immediately steals all your personal data, empties your Bank Account, formats the ECU's of all local Volvo's and finally emails all recorded conversations of you dissing family members for the last 12 months to all your contacts. Other than that...

Re: That COVID - How's it affected you?

If they are positive without symptoms they'll be ok, they'll get more testing done too. Retirement in the later (last few) years is always difficult all-round, would you really want the hassle of property upkeep when you're 86? don't think I would - I can see why these 'Retirement Villages' are so m...

Re: Sits too high at the back?

I think this is more about the front end sinking over time, springs/dampers/bushes all getting tired. We canvassed a thread on here once where members were encouraged to measure the front end ride height, obviously I can't be arsed to find it and you can bet Photofuckit have ruined it anyway but the...

Hello Dai! Our* Twingo has the Smart Wheels BB - it's fitted within the steering column cowling, I too requested daughter welly 'check if the guy needs anything' etc :supafrisk: in my case she actually did though :lol: After the first year it's deactivated remotely so it's still fitted even 2 years ...

Re: That COVID - How's it affected you?

One of the sad things is the lack of social interaction possible. As I've become older I've become more self-confident in speaking to people I don't know, I don't mean one of those nutters that tries talking to everyone but I'll catch a glimpse of someone's eye contact or facial expression.....which...

Re: 2014 508 2.2HDi GT Auto - what kind of auto?

I am a fan of the Legacy as it goes, I think the MPG's are a bit lacking and the Road Tax high, but supposed to be a good steer. I even looked at a .........no wait........I can't even sayyyyy........a ........... Le...........xus IS300h hybrid :shock: they've become affordable* but although they ar...

Wiggy - thanks for the technical data, gives me a point of research [read: discover ticking time bomb gearbox most likely] Doggy - yes I kinda thought the massage seats would be a one-time only waste of effort. Also "surprised at looking at dizzlers" - yes but then the choice of carriage for our nee...

2014 508 2.2HDi GT Auto - what kind of auto?

Hello my forum friends. A friend* of mine might* be checking out potential new motor carriages for his family main car again. He happened upon an advert for a rather lovely 508 2.2 GT with a slushy g/box. My question is - what type of auto box would it be? hoping not the 'EGS' electro/mechanical box...
