  1. Bearing in mind that that car is a repaired write off & there was a straight LF1 on Facebook yesterday for £44/45,000 it doesn’t seem cheap to me at all
  2. I think it’s a generation thing, younger customers quite happy to use them, the older customers reluctant and frosty if we can’t/won’t match
  3. Daft isn’t it? I sell Renault/Dacia. For those that don’t follow the Dacia brand, a new Sandero & it’s Stepway version were launched last April/May time. I’ve had a customer who bought an Essential SCe65 from me at launch for about £8500 new sell through Motorway for just under £10k a couple of months ago. He’s very happy & bought another higher spec Dacia from me just before it went up £1300, he’s going to run it for a year again & see what happens. This week I dealt with a customer who’d bought a Stepway Prestige auto with spare wheel for approx £15800 new at launch. That car new now is £18300ish & 6/7 months delivery, WBAC were suggesting to him it was worth over £16k! Customer didn’t want to deal with WBAC so he’s bought a secondhand car & had several thousand paid into his bank account. I’ve got a very nervous Head of business until I find a new home for my 16 month old Stepway Prestige auto 😁
  4. Unless it’s the car you’re referring too, Vauxhall have one in their heritage collection. I saw it at Shelsley Walsh a couple of months ago with a journalist taking it up the Hill at a classic car event.

    Nick Mason's open day

    I was there on Saturday, 25 plus Lotus in the car park & it was nice to see NM wandering about in scruffy clothes and an Audi cap on
  6. Sorry, didn’t see this post before, my other half doesn’t like the lack of footrest. So in my first Exige V6 (no side carpets, I tried ordering a couple of mats which turned up & were too narrow. So found a trimmer to cut & re-sew the edge onto my original mat. Then 4 odd years ago swapped to a 350 Sport with side carpets at B&C, sorted out a footrest as part of the deal & they said they’d get the mats. 350 Sport different to earlier V6 apparently. Anyhow after several months we had to agree on giving up, no short mat could be sourced. My trimmer had now retired so I have a long mat over the footrest, creating a hidden compartment to carry things like a footpump on top of the footrest.

    The Queen

    My late father had met three generations over his lifetime, the last one was Prince Charles. Turned out he’s the patron of the palliative care home that Dad ended up in & he regularly makes unannounced visits to spend time with the sick & dying. Not just a quick handshake either.
  8. Believe it or not my manager is one, but under pressure from his wife to not have it rather than of his own choice. Of course his wife got it & he did stay home the minute he knew but it looks like it was too late. We were only being asked to test every other day, not daily. We then all went down over the next week, I was one of the last but had had a sore throat despite testing negative
  9. 40mg of a Statin that was withdrawn at some point afterwards screwed me up good & proper with cramps etc. about 7 years ago. But a senior GP at my surgery who is also on some heart group within Gloucestershire NHS & seems to be held in high regard locally loves statins, he took me off ezetimibe last time saying it was a waste of time to put me on another statin which I just stopped taking in the end. Interesting that you don’t rate them & they didn’t try to push them on me at all this time round
  10. That’s it, & with regards to the food, they haven’t at least not yet, my cholesterol has been monitored for awhile as I’m a coeliac & unable to tolerate statins. It’s around 4.9/5.1 without tablets, I’m now on ezetimibe again (statin substitute but taken off it after a year previously) & bempedoic acid which is new apparently in an attempt to get it down further. Unfortunately it’s all a balance, gluten free food tends to contain more fat & I’m supposed to need more calcium than a non-coeliac. I do have a love of cheese in moderation & have now cut it back further until it’s gone. The rest are things I’ve hardly touched in years.
  11. ‘We’ decided that my other half could retire last year so I need to keep going for a few more years! Not to sure what has happened yet, waiting for an MRI. 6 tablets a day & a spray thing to use if I think I am going to have a heart attack?

    I'm back!

    I’ve just put a brief version of my story up, looks like we’ve been through something similar, we can compare number of tablets later. I’ve been off since the beginning of Feb although the first 10 days were co-vid & I’m currently signed off until the end of this month
  13. I’ve had warning signs before & had been seen by the local rapid access chest pain clinic as recently as this January. End of January we had a co-vid outbreak at work & I tested positive early February, everyone else had a slight cold. My symptoms were Man-flu for a few days, started to feel better but still testing positive when I became breathless, so rang GP/visit GP/sent to Hospital & home some 12 hours later to rest. I’d had low blood/oxygen. 3-4 days later finally test negative, but don’t feel well, following day a high pulse as well. Co-vid ward follow up people call me & told to get myself back into hospital, oh & don’t drive yourself this time! So back to Gloucester Royal, even though I was now negative I was told that I still needed to enter through the co-vid side of A&E but given my own room, loads of tests ecgs etc. plus a negative PCR test which is apparently unusual for someone who was just had it especially as their lab had tested me positive 5 days earlier. No chest pain, no arm pain but the right side of my neck & jaw was painful, pulse still 120/130 I’m normally 50ish & blood oxygen low again. So marker in my blood was now 39 compared with 21 5 days earlier. I was admitted, first night in the clothes I’d come in & in a hectic A&E ward, wired up & woken just about every time I’d managed to doze to check my blood pressure etc. Followed by 4 nights in a couple of general wards which were awful & 7 nights in cardiology ward. Cardiology consultant suspected one thing, sent off me twice for Angiograms, the first time after hanging around all day in a gown unable to eat they ran out of time & sent me back to Cardiology, the following day I insisted on keeping my warmer clothing on until they were ready, I came away with three stents which wasn’t what the consultant was expecting at all, so discharged to recover & awaiting an MRI scan. Not allowed to drive for 7 days, that was up on Friday & signed off until the end of the month. I tested positive for Co-vid on the 2nd of Feb, so that’s two months off work 🙁

    I'm back!

    Blimey, I’d just come on here to post something similar. Not about Kimbers missing though! How come you’re back at work already though? I’ll make my own post now.
