Re: Parking / legal question

Alternatively, just buy an old nail of a car and park it outside their house permanently. Onviously this is just typical internetting, but have you thought that through? they’d then be forced to take ANOTHER space, probably the next nearest one pushing you one further away. Sadly there’s no reasoni...

Re: Parking / legal question

A girl a few doors down from where I lived when I had the e46 used to do this with her shitty Fiesta that she left out of gear and with the handbrake only gently put on.

Softer end has more grip, as a rule of thumb.
You can really get some purchase with a soft rear end. You need to be careful it's not too squidgy though.

He strikes me* as a man who's very happy with his own opinion and will give it to you, whether you like it or not.

Deep ford off Lower Common in Eversley is good to clean off the crud afterwards.
That looks like it’s pretty deep !

Re: Your fleet running reports

All four coils have now been replaced on the Mini. I'm not headbanging involuntarily any more. It's been about £120 and rediculously easy to do. The Saab was £500 and a chunky job. I dread to think how much and how long it would have been on the 166.

Defeated by one muddy climb due to tyres (finally decided to get the c...
