  1. I had my old Touareg done with limo tint to stop people looking in the back when out shooting , fishing, I had it done professionally by a company in Derby (£170) , apart from the security aspect it also made the interior more comfortable in hot weather, and even though it was dark Limo you could still see through it pretty easily
  2. The new project arrives today, been looking to restore a bike again for the past few years and due to one thing or another i have put it on hold, going to do a sympathetic restoration, not to mad, but it s the 1st proper Suzuki i have ever owned, has any one else had these, is there any thing i need to watch out for, all the research on the net seems to say they are pretty bullet proof apart from the alternator / rectifier. any help greatly appreciated. Andy
  3. Seems i didn't put a small piece of punctuation in the right area, a comma after i should inform my insurance, because i had already to started looking after myself prior to the problem occurring
  4. I remember you saying it would have been bad enough coming down in your Rangey.
  5. I had the Touareg 2.5 R5 Which i absolutely loved, i did an awful lot of miles in it, almost 65,000 in 18 months always had it well serviced by trained technicians , it had all the toys including air suspension, auto, tiptronic, sports gearbox, extremely comfortable and pretty amazing off road, would i buy another - not a 2.5 - but apparently the 3.0 v6 is the best option, but can be expensive if it all goes pear shaped, i spent a fortune on mine in the time i had it, but i absolutely loved it.
  6. 1st thing i asked to see when i bought the BMW 730d to replace the blown up Touareg was how the indicators worked, the salesman didn't have a clue, Classic.
  7. Looking back on it now it seems that i missed the previous 7-9 minor episodes , just putting it down to a bad cold that i had as the symptoms only appeared after a coughing fit, it now feels so surreal, and almost as if it never happened, if it wasn't for all the tablets i will have to take everyday, and the holes and bruising in my arm where they put the tube in for the stents and intravenous drip i would have said it was a dream. In myself I feel fine, but have been warned its not over for quite a while yet , and am not totally out of danger, and i must take care in what i do for the next 12 months as next time i may not be so lucky, 4 weeks off work (self employed ) no driving for 4 weeks, must inform my insurance of this apparently, change my lifestyle, more exercise, healthier diet, quit smoking, already started these and long may it continue, considering changing my job to one that is totally stress free and doesn't involve driving 1000 mile a week
  8. Hi , Harrycatcat1 , I still have nightmares about that walk to the last drive on your shoot, still remember how deep the snow / snow drifts were that day and most of all coming down that very steep hill in my old jag (sideways) due to treacherous road conditions, its funny , i only went past the other week and told my misses about it as we went past.
  9. If It wasn't for these people i could possibly have been dead on Sunday, God bless them, and all the amazing hospital doctors, nurses, consultants etc Derby Royal Infirmary glad you were all there when i needed you. Totally unexpected heart attack, which if it wasn't for the speed of the paramedics and the great skills and expertise of ALL NHS Staff i probably wouldn't be upright, above ground and breathing today. God bless all of them, These people are absolutely amazing, and don't get the respect that they deserve.
  10. I have just measured the barrel and its 25 inches, the LOP is 14 1/2 inches
  11. Hi , I 've checked my licence and its not listed the barrel length, if memory serves me well its either 24 1/2", or 25". I will try and get it measured properly after i have hunted the tape measure down. Regards Andy
