  1. I'm tired and rather grumpy (why else would I be here!?), so I'll just sum this up in bullet points... I don't like buses running late I don't like Scot Rail's self-service ticket machine only giving me one ticket when I ordered two, and then being told that they would have to get an engineer to check the machine before any refund could be made, and that in order to get my second ticket for the train leaving in TEN MINUTES I would have to pay again on the provision that I'd be refunded the original ticket at a later date if/when they found a fault with the machine I don't like Scot Rail's train (when I finally got on it) being delayed by a freight train in front making me 20 minutes late to my destination when I was already pushing it time-wise I don't like my phone's battery dying just as I was using it as a sat nav to find my way home from a strange area (although that turned out OK because I discovered that I can find my own way just using road signs, thus increasing my future confidence in similar situations) And finally, I don't like the impending hassle of selling a used car I think that about covers it, but there are probably more things I've forgotten about (not a bad thing!).
  2. I'll keep it brief as I'm very tired (explanation will go in the "don't like" thread either after this or tomorrow), but I do like picking up a 2nd Peugeot 405 tonight, and despite looking terrible with the usual Peugeot laquer peel, it made the 170 mile drive home without fault. I especially like the very reasonable price I picked it up for...
  3. Are you sure!? It must have been an aftermarket modification as we all know BMWs don't come with indicators as standard.
  4. I don't like having to leave shortly for two buses and a train (four hours in total)... I hate people and, therefore, public transport - so this couldn't really get any worse for me. At least the drive home should be pleasant!
  5. Thanks Ian, just rub it in!
  6. Both of you should stop complaining - I'm paying £240!! Nevermind, at least the government uses our road tax payments towards keeping the roads in a good state of repair and pot-hole free... Oh wait, they don't!
  7. Oh... I'd rather have the 2.0 though!!
  8. It was, thankfully! Not sure the same will be said for my "other" news in a couple of weeks (medical stuff), but I'm trying to not think about that just now.
  9. Good Lord, how's that?
  10. Lets just say the 405 will have a "sibling" by tomorrow evening... The Santa Fe's MOT was expiring in a couple of weeks and just as I was contemplating its future, the advert appeared... 405 GTX (full electrics, estate and the same turbo diesel as my Quasar) and in the same burgundy colour that my mother's GLX was in when I was a child, so that evoked memories to begin with. The low price and locality made it impossible for me to refuse. I don't want to say too much because things I want normally go belly up, but providing I successfully pick it up tomorrow afternoon, pictures and more information will be posted.
  11. I hope you get it Matt! By the sounds of it you know your "stuff", so I'm confident it'll go your way.
  12. I do like securing the purchase of a certain French car... Not so keen on a train trip tomorrow to go and get it though - God, I hate public transport!
  13. No, they are magnetic (although the front one is DIY taped on because it kept flying off), but I just mean that I don't want to spend time waxing the paintwork only to spoil it again with fecking L-plates. I know they are mandatory, but they ruin the look of any car in my opinion.
  14. I don't like waiting for news...
  15. Looks good Chris! I need to give the 405 a good clean soon. I think I'll wait until I can take the L-plates off for good though.
