  2. Firstly good to meet Andy for the 1st time, that Elise is lovely and Chris for the 2nd time in his Excel complete with deck chairs thats organisation for you. Kimbers, as I was luckily enough to go to old Top Gear and then the new one with Andy & Chris I think the problem is it is completely scripted and I mean to the word. There was a phenomenal amount of retakes. When I went to the old TG it was slightly scripted but most of it was ad libbed. It was also a lot more laid back, i.e you could take photos when not filming, the 3 presenters mixed with the audience during breaks and gene
  3. Spent Saturday digging out laurels out the garden to replace with ...........more laurels they were looking a bit buggered after neighbour decided she could chop them down without asking, not happy it was also bloody hard work. This was after tree-gate when she decided to cut the whole of her side of every tree we had and now they are falling over. As you can imagine this ended in a heated debate. Sunday, mother in law over for Easter so cooked roast lamb and drunk way to much wine. Today, with hangover decided to clean the BMW for the first time since I have owned it and after put
  4. Yep been in storage for 20 years, and has definitely had paint at some point. There are a few dings on it as well so this winter it is having engine out back to metal respray. Interestingly the chap who owns it also has a 328 GTS with about 7k miles and he reckons the Dino is nicer to drive, I haven't driven the Dino but sat in it yesterday and the steering wheel is set like a bus. It is a really gorgeous looking thing though
  5. By the way it is not mine. But as you say never a Ferrari it is beautiful thing though
  6. The red one is going in for a bare metal respray at Foskers, it has 14000miles on the clock and obviously removal of the Ferrari badges
  7. No definitely me with the wine I was just in there thinking it really is the coolest car ever. In 1981 I would have been twelve when I saw my first one and the old man had a Triumph 2000 in brown it blew my away. It still does do that. apparently my son who is 12 got pulled at school the other day by some older kids saying, " your the one who's Dads got the lambo"
  8. By my wife in the garage looking at my Esprit with a glass of wine. "What you doing" " looking at my car" and she laughed at me!
  9. Sean this is what this forum is all about you might want to speculate £20 to become member. Great work David Heard a joke the other day, my mate David has been the victim of ID theft we now call him Dav!
  10. Lucky you don't live round here mate, that would be in bits in about 10mins. Looks great btw

  12. Sparky I am up for this next time (the belts not lotus position, oil and stuff) ?
  13. Agreed I am having lots of cupboards when the new one goes up and try to stop my wife dumping shit in it. Drives me mad
  14. I know the car, lovely, garage doesn't look to shabby either, mine is full of shit and the car. Can't wait to build the new one
  15. Chris I am going to be no help at all on your question but let's have some pics of your car please Danny
  16. I have had this conversation on here before and from memory you can do it when on near side right hand drive car without removing the door but not on the offside. I am fairly sure someone will confirm this is the case or not. I have never done it so can't say for certain. But I do need to do it at some point
  17. Christian I am fairly sure you have to remove the door if yours is on the off side like mine ?
  18. Tocus why don't you just pay your £20 ?
  19. Well a rather upsetting fact I just found out reading The Sunday Times one of the members of Bros had a Turbo Esprit!!
  20. As I have said before it is worth £20 just of the ,"view new content" button. Also when you are FFM and you order a brolley you pay for one and get two
