  1. @Gm77 Was yours the one for sale at Hexagon London recently? - if so, lovely car.

  3. This really does highlight the need for people to get an agreed valuation on their insurance policy. Without that the valuation is based on 'market value' and you're going to struggle to argue in the event of either a total loss or if repair costs get close to 'book value' and the car is therefore condemned as a write off.

  5. Retire, too many people carry on working and peg out very shortly after they stop working which seems such a waste. I had a full on City job which meant leaving home at 5am and returning 9pm on a good day. I was well paid and really enjoyed my job but it wasn't a healthy existence. Two years ago I was in your position and decided to take a break. I had a 3 month sabbatical and went back to work two days a week. I'm now down to 1 day a week as a consultant which gives me the opportunity to work on other projects as/when I fancy it. Although it's been a bit of a strange year with Co
  6. @Bibs Indeed it would but I couldn't afford the handbag that such a purchase would require..
  7. Presumably that makes the Archbishop of Canterbury a racist as he's questioning what she said?
  8. You mean it's not true? 😮
  9. Perhaps the "only selling to keep the wife happy" has something to do with the asking price?
  10. Makes Jonny's car at Matty's look a good price given what it is.
  11. Hi Chris That's not a door mounted ash tray but a sill mounted one. The door mounted one is in the pic below.
  12. It's had lots of later car parts fitted but, apart from the gold stripes on the front, looks good and has clearly been well looked after.
  13. Says its a 1981 X reg N/A upgraded in 1995 to Turbo HC spec (1986/7 presumably). Interesting
  14. Couple of bits of wood that you keep in the back of the car and take out every time you leave or arrive at the basement car park?
  15. Ask your insurance company and they will tell you if you need to get an external independent valuation. Mine simply asks for some photos and a condition report but they will often charge you for the privilege of agreeing a value with you.
  16. Market value represents what the insurance company feels is the market price for your car. It is most likely to be less than you think it is worth. If your car is written off then they will only pay out what they think it's worth and if you disagree you will have to prove it's worth more - adverts for similar cars in similar condition etc. Not easy and normally leads to disputes/unhappy claimants. Agreed Value policies agree a value of the car at the outset and normally lasts 12 months. You'll need to send photos and a condition report and get it 'agreed' with the insurer. Policy is usual
  17. What overhead lighting are you using? Both look similar and appear to give a good light - would you recommend them? Thanks
