  1. Insurance companies don't tend to be all that fussed with spouses apparently. Had several of the big names tell me that when helping sort insurance for my Dad in the past
  2. Cheap focus alloys

    The advert states 4-stud. It's a generic picture by the looks of it
  3. Student with a .ac.uk address?

    If it was .mod.uk then yeah lol Got 2 different one's that I can access at home lol Unfortunately, I'm no longer a student :(
  4. Things I Do Like

    Tempted by a private plate...just not sure I can justify £400 on a numberplate lol
  5. Assuming the bumper is salvageable, I'd estimate around £100-£120 for repair and respray (had a couple of bumpers done for around that price) Big ol' dent up there...not sure
  6. Tyres

    Just ordered a set of ZV7's for fitting next Tuesday :-) I loved the ZZ3, they are a very good tyre!! Wear well (unless you're like me and keep forgetting to check your tracking...oops), grip like glue and are very stable...unfortunately, they appear to have stopped doing them in 205/55/16 :( The ZV5's are good, not quite as good as the ZZ3 in my opinion, but I'm hoping the minor issues have been addressed by the ZV7! And at £220 for a set of 4 fitted, I can't really complain (yes, I know Huflungdung ditch finders can be had for less than £40 a corner, but I do drive hard, and want a tyre I can trust!)
  7. Things I Don't Like

    Soo...gave the car a quick wash...it's rained already. Also, whilst attempting to remove the rear number plate, I've cracked it! I was trying to take it off to replace the FOC sticker that covered up the dealer name on the bottom lip. Black insulation tape with the FOC sticker looked awesome. It was screwed on - with self tapping screws into a rivet...a bog standard rivet,,,no wonder it didn't want to come off!!! Of course...everywhere was closed by this point...and my spare/trailer plate is in Immingham lol Gonna temporarily refit the old one and order me a new one: (obviously not my real reg lol)
  8. Autotrader Finds

    Yeah, that's the sort - they look normal from the outside - but I want the car variant lol I'm seriously considering it later in the year lol Almost tempted by a Freelander 2, but I'd rather have the big brother lol
  9. Autotrader Finds

    They do a "commercial" version which has no rear seats, a bulkhead behind the front seats and a flat rear load area. They also seem to be the only variant that crops up for sale with manual gearboxes.
  10. Autotrader Finds

    Struggle to find what I want on Autotrader lol (Disco 4 with a manual 'box that isn't a van/converted from a van)
  11. Rear oval badges

    Clive, be fair!! Allen Ford are a bunch of incompetent dimwits who attempted to fleece a number of our members out of money by conveniently forgetting to issue refunds for a product that was suddenly subject to a near 10-fold price increase all of a sudden after they realised that it was a popular mod.
  12. email scam

    I've been using Comodo for a while now (think this is the 3rd laptop I've used it on...probably close to 10 years). I rate it very highly - never had a problem with it, and it runs nice and quietly in the background...although it doesn't like the new MS Office, dunno why lol
  13. Things I Don't Like

    Yeeaahhh...I'm not all that fussy...needs must and all that :-D (Just a quick note - I'm not saying that I'd go as far as dropping my trousers and curling one out in the middle of a high street, but I have been caught short in nature a few times lol)
  14. What do u think people

    Definitely a car lol And it's not the weirdest picture game on here ;-) Got any plans for it, Hunter? Or just keeping it as is?
  15. Things I Do Like

    Tour of Edinburgh, doesn't that go around the marina as well? We went to Brum xmas market + Manchester I enjoyed them both. I meant the Whisky one lol
