It's Sunday - time for confession Father


Recommended Posts

So I'm not very religious - but today I feel I need to visit a confessional box.

I've been bad - I have crumbled to my filthy and dirty desires. My dirty thoughts have overtaken the clean ones and for this I need forgiveness........

@swindon_alan I'm staying off the v8 from now on - I almost promise that. driving this beast back from Kidderminster was an absolute pleasure. She's got a quicksilver exhaust - which sounds

Got this emailed to me today

@Jacques I'm a simple country boy - the 4 pot call was simply too strong. When I first read up about v8s what concerned me was the comments like "lazy mans driving" - I really enjoy the engagement of

S4, I reckon.  You really need to check yourself into a clinic.

Azure blue S4, come on Mr kearley don't be a tease all your life as you know what happens when you are known as a tease. Mind you a pint of Baileys later and you might go all the way :lol:

Not a lot. Just some minor fettling - use and improve as and when.

History file that's as thick as a Grimsby dolehead. A nice workshop manual but she needs an mot soonish. Two rear tyres needed in the near future. All nice and hpi clear wearing original paint. Bumper on the front will need painting at some point - but that's going on the manyana list.

Shes not been run for a while - currently at the relearn ecu stage !! I'm convinced the tps is needing fettling or replacement. But could be the ecu adjusting.

im as happy as a two dicked dog and so glad to have a 4pot turbo once again :animier:

@swindon_alan it's bloody ace mate. Just needs some miles run on it to shake out any niggles. Which being an esprit I'm sure there will be.

the dash I'm sure is different to my red one - different layout on the gauges.

something was reassuringly nice driving it. Possibly not the worry of what might break !

Awesome Barry,  I knew this was on the cards, loose lips sink ships and all that lol .     Proper chuffed for you mate,  mid spoiler has always been a favorite on the S cars with me, and as said by others, cracking colour combo, probably one of the best other than chrome orange that is. :P

Really pleased for you, now get some miles on her, and a cambelt to be on the safe side :thumbup:

Just a note @Barrykearley, you won't be able to put your lad's flip out screen DVD player in this one. Unlike the later V8s it's got the earlier wide S4/S4s/'96-'97 V8 dash. I was foiled by this as well.

Is it ok if this topic gets moved to the Esprit Chat forum? I think it belongs in there B-)

Yeah topic needs moving - I had some issues with the drop down on the iPad. It would drop !!

we did manage to squeeze the DVD into the red one - will have to see what we can do - maybe we will need to do something different.
