    52 plate mondy...had the clutch, injectors and starter motor all go at the same time! Needles to say I couldn't afford to get it fixed at the time and had to get rid :'(

    Started as a part time till monkey at boots when I was at uni, ended up going full time after uni and worked up to team manager. Was there for about 10 years before my wife developed some issues and I've been her full time carer for just over 2 years

    I have something similar in mine mate although mine doesn't have 3g or wifi. I've got the freeview tv unit and reverse camera plugged in and haven't had any problems with it at all really

    Mk1 Focus Strange Noise

    Yeah obviously the engine vibrates quite a bit when turning on and off, thats what made me think of that, could be the exhaust rubbing against something too

    So here's the thing, I've noticed that a couple of people are driving around with branded alloys that don't match the car they are driving eg yesterday I saw a VW golf with Audi alloys on. Is this some strange new trend that I don't know about our am I sane in thinking that this is just a little bit strange?

    I get that lol but the person driving the golf obviously doesn't lol
