Good point, can't really argue with you there. The only problem is you'd have to have bikes with number plates and all paperwork like you do with a car, it would be more hassle than it's worth.

There has been some serious talks on this matter recently within our government, with so many cyclists being hit on the roads.


There is the idea at the moment, that cyclists will need tax(though will be £0), mot (In the same way as a car, breaks & tires) & insurance. I really hope they do, as some insurance companies can be arseholes when it comes to who's at fault when a cyclist is involved. It's ok for them to claim from you, but when they cause the damage, it's like getting blood out of a stone.

I've always buy my service kits from ebay, never pay any more than about £30/£40

Never had a problem with them and in fact, though your supposed to. I've not done service on car this year, as filters are all fine.


Break pads I use are PAGID, I did use to use BOSCH pads but found these don't last as long.

Thanks for the replies.


I've booked the car in at a different garage next week, so we'll see what they have to say.


A 4 year old car with just over 100,000 on the clock, which already has a new engine and now might need a new turbo - not a good advert for Ford.

A 100k between two engines if it's not been replaced with original engine sounds about right, my first one went at around that mark.


But an engine replacement on a 10 plate, I'd be asking for my money back through small claims. I've never owned a car, that has had to have an engine replacement and I've had them right through to 150k+. Even old Escorts mk3 & mk4, I used to run these until bits dropped off. It puts me off, wanting to own a newer car. Give me an old banger any day.

As long as nothing goes wrong with our customer servers, I pretty much do nothing all day every day.

It sounds like your turbo is on it's way out, I had this happen and it blew on M5 shattering turbines in turbo.
