Hang 0n - it must have been something else! Cos that's nonsense.

Maybe it was HSS 500W ?
Clever either way.

Someone thought about that for a while I think. ? :D

Re: Mildly amusing or not? You decide!

I see a lot of clever ones here and there.

There seems to be a new take on them these days. Not necessarily being car or even name related.

PA57YAA is one from an Astra group member that I think is clever. It reads as PAST YAA just incase it's not obvious.

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

For reference Koni reds can be adjusted if that's what is fitted but I'm sure they need to be removed to do so. It involves turning the damper shaft to adjust the tension from memory. I did run mine in a softer setting briefly but seem to remember that made the handling very odd and floaty, so I alw...

Mildly amusing or not? You decide!

For quite a while now I've noticed the odd R800 number plate on various different cars. Never anything Rover related though. Last weekend while out I spotted a surprising choice of plate on a SEAT. I wished I'd actually taken a photo of it now. It amused me anyway. https://i.postimg.cc/cKy2kDTj/Scre...

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Is this an 820?

All emissions issues I had with them were lambda/cat related.

Why did it have a new car before?

Re: A hybrid on the driveway!

Nice looking tech, I do like the screen positions in newer cars. You definitely wouldn't be happy with my Jeep based on those fuel figures. That's in the region of 21-22 l/100km if my maths is right! I haven't driven any EV or Hybrid cars yet. They are starting to appear locally but nothing similar ...

Re: Another car on the drive

Erm, so we seem to have agreed to buy this. It's a 2008 2l petrol turbo. It's done 37k and only one owner from new. We've got to wait for the MOT, cambelt and 2 tyres being done before we can have it. Should be a week or so we hope. https://i.postimg.cc/T5nYwk5w/IMG-20190827-190811.jpg https://i.pos...

Re: Another car on the drive

We looked at Cascadas but they're based on a MK6 Astra which neither of us like. We looked at 3 cars yesterday, a MK4 which wasnt as clean as the owner made out and felt very old to drive. So they're out. We then looked at 2 MK5s. One which was in very poor condition for the money and the other whic...

Re: Another car on the drive

Fair enough.

I'm still looking at convertibles, going to look at an old Astra on Saturday all being well.

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Possibly, it went through several hands in a short space.

Alex had it before me, the Steven in Scotland after. Then Fraser? I forget now.

It caused a bit of trouble in the past.

Here's a random pic from when I had it
