  1. Surely it is a get it up and running and worry about cosmetics later. My main concern would be getting it done before Brexit as then we will all be out hunting
  2. @LJR that is so going to be worth the effort, top tip “GIN”
  3. That is the dream, I just need to very carefully murder @JNW3 change his will and I am a very happy owner of a S1 and Essex 007! Ps. Don’t tell anyone
  4. Happy Birthday from a bloody freezing Dan E

    Insurance time

    Funnily enough I got a cracking deal today from Lancaster for agreed value on the Elan and then they will pick up the Esprit in August on a multi car deal also with a very decent agreed value. It was a lot cheaper than AIB. Not sure how that will work on an Evora but give David a call he was very helpful.
  7. Door handle and rear view mirror, I am here if you need help
  8. I will find out on Monday for you, you can have it for the settlement figure I am not interested in making any money out of it as I have traded it for the new one. I will get them to send me the paperwork and scan it over to you. I will need it until 1st March and need the deal done on that day so I can swap it over. Honestly, it is perfect, tiny dent in back door, and a 25mm scratch on the front near side bumper, that was me putting it into a car lift. I can send you the full spec as have all the paperwork I know there is nothing wrong with it. I am sure it will have a few kerbs on the wheels but happy to get it all cleaned up and send you the pictures as it is filthy at the moment Let me know, you could if you could be arsed, buy it, decide you hate it and make a couple of grand selling it on
  9. Steve wish I had known that I just bought a 119cdi crew van didn’t know your son worked a Rygor! Got a decent deal as it goes comes on first March. Yep you need the 2.2 auto with comfort seats, on my third never had one issue with any of them bloody brilliant vans. Actually thinking about it Barry if you want it you could have it for the settlement figure which I could find out for you. Its pretty much mint, full Merc history and 46000miles I am only getting rid of it because of the twat Khan and the Ulez
  10. Jaysus has anyone watched the Car SOS with the Lancia Intergrale just watched on catch up. I never thought I was a softy but .............
  11. Paul , just a warning I had S1 Elise one of the first and it was my only car, I still miss it and wish I had kept it, but once you dip your toe in they are addictive, tell me how I know.
  12. Yes Happy Birthday Girls Features,
  13. Oh that is bloody lovely. Go on Mark
  14. Yep Pete they are that good but also their residuals are so much better so actually on finance they are the better deal. I would have bought the one I have got but I can’t be paying £500 a month to drive into my capital city
  15. Well it’s my 3rd Vito Crew Cab Compact never had one problem with any of them, well one broken bracket on a glove box that is it on this one ( replaced under warranty) apart from that nothing I have never even bothered to check the oil, I have however filled up the screen wash. Everyone drives them and they never, ever go wrong. Always buy an auto with comfort seats. They are the Rolls Royce of vans ride wise. This one is a 119 Cdi Sport, LED Intelligent lights, Heated seats, comfort seats (obviously), Park Assist so can park itself, reversing camera, Audio 40 with Apple car play and DAB, electric everything, in flint grey and hysterically 190bhp and can do 130mph. I haven’t seen it but I have never bought a van I have seen. It is also VAT down so I will get that back and £2 cheaper a month than the last one. I tried every other van but they are brilliant things,
  16. Well due to that complete hunt Khan I have had to get a new van. Spent the last week playing a couple of dealers off against each other and I am guessing they are having a tough time as I got exactly what I wanted with, and I am not making this up a not inconsiderable £7,958.00 off. They both had stock and it is from stock in fact it has more on it than I wanted on it so deal was done. Then this morning I rang the chap and ruined his day by saying I don’t want it until March 1st so it is a 19 plate Cue lots of it can’t be done so I pulled the plug, got a call on the way home and they agreed, oh and forgot to tell you I need it delivered. He agreed to that as well. Happy days
  17. @C8RKH all you are trying to say is keep the bloody DNA and fooking hurrah to that. I could not agree more
  18. What you mean the buses with 6 people on?
  19. And there I was thinking I was special. The Elan passed the MOT with flying colours yesterday only advisory was a g string in the offside brake calliper so thank you x
  20. If this has been talked about before then sorry but I am seriously angry about this. I live in South East London, truth be told (thanks Nes) actually Kent and travel with essential work equipment into London at least 10 days a month if we are busy that can be 25 days a month and that &*£”! Khan is now bringing in the Ultra Low Emission Zone. My van is 3 years old in March and I was going to buy it, oh but no, I am not now, as it turns out, that it will cost me £24 a day to drive into inner London for 2 years then in 2021 the Ulez is going to include everything within the North and South Circular. Well the £12.50 as not in the CC zone. That means every car/ van I own is subject to this 24hrs a day 365 days a year, including my wife’s 3 year old BMW! Now I am kinda lucky as the van lease is up in 8 weeks so I am having to buy a new Euro 6 compliant one. We always go to the cinema in Greenwich in 2 years we will never go. We done a straw poll on the motorway on the way back from Hertfordshire today and 80% of them vehicles are buggered. Commercials are £100 a day! This is ludicrous, what 7 years ago we were told to drive diesels now this, so I am going to trade a perfectly good van in the next 8 weeks,my wife’s car is worthless in 2 years and the Loti which must have paid their green credentials 20 years ago and their emissions must be in nothing in the real world are not allowed either. This country only has one way of sorting anything, not by forward thinking, but by tax. This will f&£k so many businesses it is beyond a joke, not mine as I was lucky Dan E/taxed rant not even started to be honest ps. Please don’t give me you shouldn’t live in London crap this is real world stuff that is going to bury a lot of businesses and people
