How come her head is separate but his isn't?!

#485068 Whats Wrong With Kwik Fit Anyway? - Where Do We Start!?!

Posted by MartynS on 11 May 2015 - 10:08 PM

Years back when I had my first car and the front tyres were nearing the limits I took it to a local kwik-fit, a guy came out and measured the depth then told me they still had some life left in them and it wasn't worth changing yet!  Got to respect them for that lol.

Told him straight it's my car, its my filler neck and I like to see how much they would charge me for removing a bung from a funnel.

Funniest thing I've seen all day :lol:

He could have at least pulled forward another foot to make it 7 spaces :lol:.

Same, though I'm also surprised he actually drove into the guy cutting in.  Surely you'd notice a car ahead of you and brake a bit harder?!

#481703 Automatic Boot Opening Kit Anyone?

hahaha I'd love to be there when she tries to open it.  Must be very heavy to hold up, especially one handed while trying to load shopping in lol.

Just wheelclamp yourself.  This also has the added benefit of allowing you to park anywhere you want for free!

#478598 Wrong Engine?

Posted by MartynS on 21 April 2015 - 09:03 PM

I've just been googling this for a bit trying to get an answer, there are surprisingly few pictures out there!  The only few I've found, along with a matching picture in the car handbook, point to it being a 1.5...  I didn't even think this existed in 2012?  I'm very confused too now!

#477541 Has The Dealership Broken My Radio And Sync?

Posted by MartynS on 18 April 2015 - 12:44 PM

lol glad you've got it sorted!  I'm surprised though that when you phoned the dealer they didn't realise this - after all the normal solution to any electrical problem is turn it off and on again!

Some of those look expensive, their cars probably aren't insured either!

I saw an amusing incident involving an X5 once - it was stopped just into a side road with its nearside rear wheel leaning in about 45 degrees.  Seemed like it just collapsed while driving, was too far away from the curb to have hit it or anything else!  I thought suspension was meant to be strong lol.

#474560 Minor Rtc Advice Needed

someone has travelled with an unsecured loan. As such you could claim repairs and coats from them,

So if you go out for a drive while having an unsecured loan you may have to give someone your coat?  Got to love autocorrect!

It's very important to keep traffic cones dry, that car did a good thing in sacrificing itself.  I guess the other one just wanted to join in?

Maybe that's why so many drivers of them appear to be in the middle of the car when you look in your rear view mirror, they're attempting to counterbalance it!
