  1. Probably this new vehicle tax rip off, on a new Landcruiser 2 grand is added on for the first year, and we just roll over and take it.

    Yes we have them in Hampshire now, most of us like to take our classic cars out on Sunday morning, totally spoilt by people trying to get fit.
  3. I brought a Honda 4 stroke this year and it’s rubbish, first you have to leave the choke on for some time or it will stop, the thing will just stop randomly when on tick over even though the engine is running fast enough not to. The power is not as much as an equivalent 2 stroke one, I will stick to 2 Stoke next time which will not be that long off with this one, and when you fill it up you can not see the clear petrol in the tank so expect to over fill it every time.
  4. Yes and a few of me with a friendly hand jester It’s a real annoying sod, it’s triggering some of my alarms in buildings that work on vibration.
  5. A grey Helicopter with a camera on the side has been flying round all day, it’s obviously following some sort of grid pattern, what is it filming, the same thing happened last year this time.
  6. Get yourself a Porsche Carrera 4s 997 , sensible money used , and for us 50 something it will make you feel like your hairs grown back.
  7. The ML went into count down mode because it needed adblue, I put the stuff in and it would not register that it had been done so still on count down to shut the engine down. I had to go to a Mercedes specialist to put it on there diagnostics machine, I think there called Knox sensors or something like that had failed, apparently it’s something Mercedes are aware of but are doing nothing about, the bill was around £1200. The guy at the garage said they are really nice cars ruined by adblue problems. On another note I never got the Landcruiser , that had the adblue which I knew about but it all
  8. I have been looking at one of these for a while, I am going to look at an 18 plate one, the one thing that has stopped me from just buying one is this adblue, we had a terrible experience with a Mercedes ml that had it, has any one got a Landcruiser with adblue and have you had problems with it or the DPF. Thanks.
  9. I have the the same year Defender in a 110 it is my daily driver, I have been looking for a replacement for a while now and I have come up with 2 alternatives, last of the Mitsubishi shoguns and Toyota Landcruiser , at the moment I favour the Toyota.
  10. I can see where your coming from with Range Rovers , each one I have had was going to be my last, I have gone way back to the beginning now with a 79 classic 2 door v8 petrol, think I am around five grand into the rolling restoration now. No fool like an old fool.
  11. Yes that’s it, may be I should put a little Barbie watch in the box 😁

    Ebay Rant

    I had a watch in the auction, it was doing quite well when the bidder who was winning contacts me saying I am getting someone to run him up and is reporting me, I have a few choice words with him then cancel his bids and block him, the auction carries on with several bidders trying to win, any way the auction ends and when I see who the winner is I am sure it’s the same person or a friend he’s got to bid and win , they are both selling the same computer equipment, I contacted Ebay who have said I still need to send the watch once he’s paid, what’s the bet when I send it he will say it never ar
  13. Yes I can hear the pump, it fires but won’t start at all now.
  14. Ha yes, I did think that but fortunately I have not quite got to making mistakes like that yet. They are going to send there van to collect next week, the driver is Going to see if he can sort it on site, if not it’s back to base.
  15. The first few minutes it was perfect then started to bog down now won’t start at all, it has just been mot and serviced as well.
  16. Yes I will see what’s said tomorrow, I am bitterly disappointed to night.
  17. Hi just got a bike delivered to me to day and it was not running right and now will not start, I called the shop who are 5 hours away from me and they are going to get there mechanic to call me tomorrow. The warrantee is a back to base one but as they are so far away am I entitled to get the bike looked at locally and they pay the bill. Thanks
  18. I agree, there are some real money grabbing bosses, my wife had 1 hour deducted from her wages when I picked her up from work early to have our beloved Dog put to sleep when he had a stoke.
  19. The BBC, my old mums just had her letter from them about the tv licence, she has ripped it up all ready , at 82 what prison will they put her in.
  20. This, sums it up for a lot of shooters.
  21. Disgusting behaviour allowed by our Government, I did like Boris but my support for him his going fast.
  22. Interesting to see if the insurance company’s play ball with this, they don’t usually miss a trick to not pay up.
  23. I have My 110 done the same time as the mot, As for oil leaks I think that’s a built in thing with them, currently have a leak on the transfer box, I think that’s a box out job as well.
  24. Totally agree, only this will never be said by any media.
