Re: Abrupt change-down with auto box

We had an automatic mini cooper with jerky gear change at 40,000 miles. It froze in 4th and rather a lot of money later an independent garage fitted reconditioned auto box.

Re: Buying New Private Reg - which site to use

I don't take any of this too seriously but having seen RICH 1 on the way out today on a FFRR I do question what the owner thinks the effect is on the rest of the public? I wonder if he/she thinks they are saying "what a jolly funny person" or something unprintable? You make a good point about cars a...

Re: Buying New Private Reg - which site to use

I think they are just bling and more like vulgar jewelry than art. The motoring equivalent of the gold chain, open shirt and hairy chest :lol:

Anyway, each to his or her own....

Re: Buying New Private Reg - which site to use

I'm a simple lad from Hull. £450k would buy the whole city lol. The idea that someone could spend so much on something so utterly pointless is a bit obscene to be honest. I could think of much better ways to use that sort of money 😄

Another puncture!

That's two in 14 months! Both tyres repaired. Both had screws through centre of tread pattern. Unlucky or perhaps I need to spend less time at the recycling centre and free parking at B&Q! I'd say that skinny spare and jack have now paid for themselves nearly three times over :D Anyone who is waveri...

Re: newbie future owner with a few questions

When I got mine in April 2018 the electrically adjustable steering wheel was an option and it came with standard 10 way electric seats. These are pretty comfortable but I added lumbar adjustment. They stopped making the supercharged V6 S a few months after I got mine so you will be looking at a 1 ye...
