  1. I got one for my dad and it is fairly straight forward and easy. Just remeber that whenever you change your car you will have to inform everyone and pay a fee for doing so. Great link mintalkin
  2. Was an inspiration for millions and did alot for many people, he did have flaws but lets hope he gets remembered for the music and entertaining rather than speculation and rumours.
  3. I agree that it is annoying and fustrating having people sit in a lane they shouldnt be when they quite clearly move over and obey the highway code. I do think that getting aggressive and flashing is even more of a foolish method of trying to resolve the matter. It does take your attention and concentration of the rest of the road and can cause an accident. Lets not victimise anyone on here for there behaviour but everyone should always try to be the better driver and avoid any instances that could cause problems or incidents. Besides i'd be hacked off if i got stuck in traffic due to an accident :P
  4. Well where do i start........ I was driving down the motorway and my door just fell off...... i thought it was a one off until my other door fell off going round a round about. I wasnt to concerned as it was a hot day, so it saved me using the air con. I then parked up and found i had a flat tyre so i opened the boot which i noticed had 'made in japan' on it ...... the cheek! I got out the spare wheel which was from a bmx 8" bmx wheel and continued trying to change the wheel. I got out the jack but he wasnt in the mood so went with jill to fetch a pale of water. I had to lift the car with one hand while changing the wheel with the other, so it was quite handy that i had eaten my spinach just before. I changed the wheel but lost all the bolts to tighten it back up, so i just used a bit of sticky back plastic. After changing the wheel i realised i was late so jumped in the car which was obviously quicker and easier to enter now it had no doors, started her up and found that the engine was making a strange noise. I jumped out (i was quite energetic with all the jumping, think the spinach was still working) and opened the bonnet. I soon discovered that one of the hamsters in his wheel was not to well so quickly swapped it for another and it was soon back to full power. Mine is the uprated version with 15 whp (wheeled hamster power). After having such a bad day i decided to solve global warming, hunger and provide world peace. There you go dalester, thats about as accurate as the papers are so it should slot in pretty nicely. If your not a journalist then my apologies but it should at least make you smile. PS. i have had no problems what so ever with my fiesta, it has been spot on since the day i got it.
  5. Hello steve when is the paintball day planned for?
  6. You need a third now called George
  7. Thats an interesting idea titch, how would you go about doing that?
  8. Sounds very promising cheers
  9. Hello and welcome to the club I'm also a member of the lexus owners club and a prevous IS200 owner!! I've sorted your title out for you.
  10. So are you saying you've already won??
  11. Ok just thought i'd check, never run it that low when my petrol light comes on but just in case i wondered if you get a final warning that you really desperately need petrol.
  12. Thank you very much thats a good guide, will have a go when the weathers a bit better and see if they look like similar setups.
  13. Ok just for a bit of fun i thought i'd see what everyone would do if they won the lottery. The amount you win is £5,000,000 what would you spend it on?? Firstly i would walk into the bank and pay back everything i owe in cash. Then would take a trip to find some land that i could buy to build a house, nothing too big just 4 bed with a gym room and cinema room .... o and a pool. Then it would be a car search, i would buy an everday car such as an RS4 or IS-F, i'd buy a Noble and a 4x4 for the dogs Then a nice long 4 week holiday, maybe 2 weeks in the maldives and 2 weeks somewhere else. When all thats done it would be time to work on opening up my own business, i've always wanted a repair/modifying garage. Then i would invest the rest to try and build on the winnings and live off the profits off my business. Well thats my dream.... not put much thought into it What about you?
  14. Thats good news that you got it back, you could always have a petrol kill switch which you turn off when you leave the car, there is a certain sports car that has one under the back seat.
  15. Come on people please sponsor me, even if it's only £1! Would really appreciate it
