#530150 Eve, It's Time For A Face Lift (mk2 Focus Zetec Climate 2.0)

Posted by jeebowhite on Yesterday, 12:07 PM

Looking forward to seeing this one progress!


As for the old bluetooth, lol. Yeah, been there, lived that! I am very surprised that the car cannot handle it though, I dont understand why reading the values as it starts causes it so much chaos! never the less, its a simple enough fix!

#530093 Proud To Announce..

Posted by jeebowhite on Yesterday, 08:03 AM

I bet you were the happiest person in Kent after reading this post James. Ok then England

Yup I can say that for certain...

From the health and safety office, I'm hearing the guy had spent 13k on his corsa, let's hope he spent some of that on insurance to cover his modifications then or he will learn the hard way! Maybe the reason he was crying [emoji38]
There is a video doing the rounds somewhere, I'm just trying to find it though.

13k? Is it the typical 500 pound corsa with '12k' mods?!?!

We need a *groan* button lol


Preach brother - preach! = JamesM, Steve - make it happen please :P


A likely story :rolleyes:

Stef neglected to mention his position at the time, and I suspect taking photo's isnt due to the fact he is working on matters of national security, I suspect its because he would put himself in the frame - the reflection of a window showing a lit rag, a petrol carton and a massive cheesy grin upon his face...


Was it deliberately done by the owner.

Cant say I blame him...


Hello all,
On this day I am proud to announce the loss of another Corsa from our roads :lol:

It caught fire at work this morning in the car park, damaging a Suzuki swift parked next to it. Safe to say the corsa is a write off.

Sadly no pictures, strictly no photography on this site.


I havent played a direct part, though I have witnessed and slightly assisted in the shipping of a corsa to the old corsa homes.Did a diagnostics on it, confirmed the sensors going to cost a few bob in labour and parts, an its just not worth it, so my colleague is going to retire it - and look at a kia cee'd or, a focus!!!!

I sympathise with those who bought an apparent mega eco car, and now their tax is going to be tripling...


Goes to show, you can make a car look shiny, and you can be as big as you like, no matter what your name or how pretty the car looks, what lurks below can be evil!

#530030 Speed Cameras On Overhead Signs

Posted by jeebowhite on 08 October 2015 - 08:24 PM


Really? I always thought that if you were caught by several cameras that it was classed as once instance and you only received one speeding violation. Can't remember where I heard that, it was quite a while ago though.


Technically you have contravened the speed limit 5 times on that patch of road, under five different monitoring points

#530027 Has Anyone Ordered Glasses Online Before?

Posted by jeebowhite on 08 October 2015 - 08:20 PM

I used Glasses direct previously, however, my lenses are too strong a prescription to be processed online anymore :( it was so much cheaper than the high street, and the specs where excellent quality to say the least!

#530022 Paypal Scam Warning

Posted by jeebowhite on 08 October 2015 - 07:56 PM

no matter what the content, my rule is this - if its unexpected don't click it, this includes password changes and requests to update details.


  • To simpligy the matter, my advice is:
  • If it looks real, google it,
  • if you really are paranoid visit the site outside of the email - most financial institutions would due to the FCA regulations I believe, be required to present you with a change of circumstances page, which you must read, tick the box to acknowledge and then proceed.


If you are still not sure, contact the organisation via phone!


if you really are seriously paranoid, when you are on a website and you dont know if its truly the real deal, it should if it contains any financial data, need a password to access it and have an SSL Certificate. there is normally a padlock icon at the left or right of the website address. Click this, if it has the real companies name, then its almost guaranteed to be fine, if it has a security certificate error of any form, then do not open it!

That mat is an anti slip dash mat, the freebie for your purchase.

Not a problem at all mate, glad it's still coming in handy.

The Cross Climate seem like great tyres, I was wondering if you had any longevity tests done on them? and if you have an estimated mileage from new to needing change out of them? 

#529146 Things I Don't Like

Posted by jeebowhite on 05 October 2015 - 04:30 PM

Yeah I am disappointed overall, but I'm not angry. I'm very much understanding the reasons she doesn't want to say anything, though I am annoyed they (sorry... He) made the decision to have put my car in the middle of it. In this case we are both victims, though for me a bit of scratched metal is the much lesser victim, by all accounts this poor woman is in a much worse state than my car.

I hope he gets his comeuppance.
