  1. That's a shame mate, nearly everyone does 80 anyway these days, instead they should focus catching those people doing ridiculous speeds. Yesterday on the M3, an older generation BMW 6 series absolutely flew past in the right hand lane, engine redlining judging from the sound. He must have been AT LEAST doing 100 MPH. Once he was a few meters past me, something disintegrated in his engine bay, and landed on the motorway. Looked like his engine undertray, but wasn't too sure. *****
  2. Haha oops! That I can believe!
  3. The Mk1 handles better than Mk2 in the wind? How come? :O It's weather like this I regret having a black car, the exact moment the A/C turns off in the car, it turns into an oven. Stupid insurance company didn't allow me to tint windows either.
  4. But that's absolute *****... Statistically that's true most of the time, but there was nothing you did there in the remotest way that would suggest that? If a chav Corsa driver was speeding all the time, then statistically he's probably more likely to be involved in a crash, even if the crash isn't his fault. The video proves that you were driving in an ordinary, and completely safe, risk-free manner. From the footage, statistically, you are NOT more likely to crash. The insurance companies are just applying a blanket rule - one size fits all approach, because it suits them! /end rant
  5. This is utter *****, in situations like these where it's bleedin obvious that the driver who got hit didn't contribute to the cause of the crash in the slightest possible way, their premium shouldn't nudge. The whole system needs a serious shake-up. Good on you for shopping around though.
  6. I do like the awesome weather this weekend, and covering over 130 miles in the old girl without a hitch!
  7. Where is that? Some where on the south west coast?
  8. Really? I personally like it, think it looks cool :)
  9. Agree 100%. Shaving is such a waste of time. I also don't like calling up my local dealer's parts department, only to get the guy who answered the phone to tell me in a gruff voice to hold on a moment. That moment turned into me waiting for two minutes, with lots of random background chatter with people working next to him. Of course I didn't feel like waiting for an eternity, so I hung up on him. Ford's customer service is really god awful, they remind me of easyJet.
  10. Out of curiosity I checked the car you returned @GaryPL , and it's showing as 'untaxed'. Does that mean that Ford haven't yet sold it to another customer? BTW, the long letter you sent to them was brilliant.
  11. Thanks, I'll do some research. I've realized that a lot of the second hand ones sold on eBay seem to suffer from 'ghosting' (where the heat from a bulb or another source has clouded the top of the lens). Have to try to find a mint condition one.
  12. Surely there must be a few, not like I live on mars lol. But I actually don't have a clue about any, I guess google might be my only bet...
  13. Hi guys, The offside front headlamp de-laminating on my car (the clear plastic in front of the reflector), and looks bad, so I would like to replace the headlamp. Any tips on where to obtain a replacement headlamp, at a cheap price, that's not a chinese knock-off? I'm weary of buying from eBay (that and the fact that most of them seem to be costly). Perhaps wreckers? Anyone know of any in the surrey/berkshire area?
  14. Indeed, all the windows are open in the living room, but it's still 57% RH, which is somewhat high.
  15. Can't figure out anything 'fun' to do with mine, so decided to wash my car
