  1. My neighbors. Pretty much don't know they're there until they start howling. A pair plus pups = a pack this year.

  2. Sometimes words fail me. Its a 2013 which makes it £35000 really. £32500 for a quick sale. Why would you undercut the market by such a large amount? If the seller had done their homework they would have read these threads and decided, even if initially, to put it on at a decent whack. Unless its a trader who bought it for a silly price trade and wants a quick flip? BUT, its a rubbish advert, only 4 pics, no close up's, 52k miles, Matt black is a nightmare colour to clean and repair should there be any imperfections. Has it an HPI? Do we know if its had previous accident damage or is even

  8. Not sure if this has been posted before, but a fantastic video with Dickie Meaden (EVO) and Matt Becker around the time of the original launch. Great discussion about road dynamics followed by draw-dropping track driving. I’m still gutted we lost Matt to Aston Martin.

  9. Gcar turbo body with Stephen’s chassis (no naff trunnions). Modern tyre size wheels and 4 pot callipers. 32 valve V8 with 6 speed gearbox Gcar interior with better seats (Recaro CS) and boomerang dash pod with nice instruments. Hang on, I already have it (except the turbo body)

  10. Lol - I am fully up to speed as I knew the spoilers would come not least bloody BBC breakfast showing last nights ending on their programme this morning. Bloody muppets! I do believe though that PC Pike did follow orders from Captain Mainwaring and he refused to "tell them his name"! Three Police Officers here on final warnings after joy riding in a Bentley! FFS. Did they get a free lobotomy on the NHS? Fooking muppets! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-56792910

  13. Sorry I missed the messages. I too got mine from the company in the US but via a pal who lives out there. Worked out pricy with that crazy US to UK shipping and duty too 😳

  17. The Essex is regassed every few years and it then works well. However, I sometimes can't be bothered to get it done given our poor summers. Personally it really doesn't make much difference either way. If you have a car with a factory sunroof, yes it gets hotter in summer but you can open it (two levels) or remove it completely. If you find the right car I really wouldn't worry if it happened to have air con or not.

  24. last of the planting up for now done - the odd pole and wire arrangement is an electric fence to discourage the dogs 😬. Next job is the decking side rail and then I can get onto the near side of the path which is going to be the site of a summerhouse/gin shed

  25. Just discovered this thread. Had my 2013 manual Sports Racer S (venom red) for a while, always felt it would become the equivalent of the Turbo Esprit HC... the most desirable and developed of the original style

  26. 1. Yes I converted it myself 'on the drive' (hoses, compressor & dryer) Evaporator & condensor are original parts. 2. I get between 2.5 - 4.5 centrigrade at the vent. (Even though compressor is smaller than the original Sanden SD508). 3. As above. I recommissioned the system maybe 5 years ago and its been 100% reliable and only been topped up with a few ounces since then. There is a thread about it somewhere. Andy Warne did a full install of AC on a non-AC model around the same time.

  27. Useless fact - the first series of Line of Duty was filmed in Millennium Point in Birmingham in the offices where I worked. My claim to fame (such as it is) is that the AC12 offices were actually my offices. The interview room I have used many times for "interviews".

  29. I had a very serious car accident when I was 51. While in intensive care in agony, I realised that life is fragile, and that although my job was a really good one (great package, and 9 to 5, with no stress), what I really wanted was freedom. Freedom to do or not do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Financially, I could retire but it was a touch scary. So I said I was going on an "extended career break"; during which I would decide whether being NEET would suit me. I left (helped along by a lovely redundancy package) in October 2018 when I was 53. I didn't draw on either of my pe

  30. For me, it was simply a question of finance, as I couldn’t wait to retire. Did I have enough to enable me to do so, and still have a reasonable standard of living? And if so, what was the point in carrying on working? Having now been retired for two years, I can say I am far less stressed, spend much more time with the wife, and am generally happier that before. I no longer place much emphasis on material goods, instead life experiences have become more important. Retirement doesn’t suit everyone, though.

  31. Retired a month before my 55th birthday because the company had become intolerable. Was in discussions with a similar company, but quickly realised I was done with it all. Much lower pension, but richer in every other sense. I've had four fantastic years of doing what the hell I want. Tracy followed me only a few months later at the tender age of 53. We both have hobbies coming out of our ears, and plenty of family and friends. Couldn't get bored if we tried! Doesn't matter how much money you have, you can't buy more time.
