Re: Used Boxsters - Talk to me....

Had to check something the the local Porsche dealer today as the locking wheel nut key still hasn’t turned up so I was looking for the backup option of ordering a new key from them or just ditching them and getting non-locking bolts. 20 new bolts, £128. Hourly labour rate - £198 😃 They used to do g...

Re: Mountain Biking general thread

The motor makes them so usable even on tarmac, I've never thought the weight and chunky tyres were a pain.

Re: Mountain Biking general thread

The Orbea would have been my first choice but the 2019 bikes were scarce come September last year and I'm an odd shape so really needed to sit on one at a minimum.

My mate in the car trade would say exactly that and then "go and find another one" :lol:

Re: Mitsubishi UK/EU

That's an interesting summary, I didn't realise theyve had pretty much nothing new over the last 10 years other than facelifts. Even the Eclipse is an Outlander derivative. My wife has one of the last diesel Outlanders and it's great family workhorse, tows well and generally feels robust but it defi...

Re: Mitsubishi UK/EU

i can kind of understand Mitsubishi, but Nissan would be an odd one to phase out - the gashquai has to be one of the best selling cars in this country? Quick search says as well as the L200's 10k plus Outlander PHEVs a year in the UK and a further 12k plus Shogun's, ASX, Eclipse etc. That's a £1 bi...

Re: Mitsubishi UK/EU

Mitsubishi sold over 10,000 L200's in the UK last year and Outlanders seem to be everywhere. Renault aren't going offer alternatives to retain those £s, seems bizarre.

Re: Masks in shops

As I said in the other mask thread, I don’t think the masks themselves will do much except remind people that Covid isn’t over. Which will probably make them very effective. I thought that would be the case, but nipping out to get a sandwich for lunch yesterday, it seemed people now think masks mak...

Re: Mountain Biking general thread

I may have picked the wrong time to sell my spare bike after all...! I’ve just sent my forks and rear shock from my Capra to be serviced and I got a call to quickly chat about what I want done with the rear shock. I then asked about the forks, which the guys sounded puzzled on, turns out that my fo...

Re: Muzzles*!!!

Maybe old people have just gone past worrying about dying ?

My 72yr old dad doesn't get it, he goes to the shops everyday for fags, papers and bits and bobs without a care in the world. I've given up trying to explain its not a cold :lol:

I remember Tiff Needell having a manual E61 back in the day and thinking how cool is that. I've never seen one since.

Ceramic coating on my BBS RS was £100 at a different place, I guess it comes down to me being a repeat customer that I get very good rates.
And living West of Cardiff.
