    Current F25 '16 X3
  1. What about F30 335d xdrive?

    I treated myself to my very first brand new car last year for my 40th and got an F25 X3 2.0D. Although it looks the dog's bollocks (I need to get pics up) and came with a decent spec it just feels so dull.It's a hard and noisy ride,the engine sounds like a black cab on tickover and the steering is far too light for my liking. The 8 speed gearbox is good though,it glides through the gears and you don't feel the changes and the Xdrive worked tremendously with the recent weather. The wife talked me into it.I wanted a 5 tourer but we had an e53 X5 at the time and she preferred the high driving position. It would definitely have to be a 3.0 to get any enjoyment out of these.
  2. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    How about a Volvo XC90?

  5. The grand tour

    At least the Kia's achievable But yes, the Bugatti is awesome and I love the noise of the turbo
  6. What a waste

    We have different consignments in the North West http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/lorry-full-cannabis-found-fire-14066524
  7. The grand tour

    Watched episode 3 today. How cool is that Kia?? ... and it's RWD
  8. The grand tour

    Definitely an improvement on the last series. As well as ditching that shit celebrity thing that they did,the fact that they're filming it in front of a UK audience in the tent makes all the difference. When they were filming worldwide the gags seemed dumbed down probably because not many countries get our humour/irony (especially the Yanks). I think this season is going to be a goodun
  9. This months stupid award goes to....

    Not as daft as you all think .... He's making shitloads of money http://naibuzz.com/2017/01/19/much-money-tgfbro-makes-youtube/
  10. A mates dad used to put a square piece of plywood on the drivers seat every night with a load of 3" nails poking up and with a thin cushion on top. Nobody put it to the test unfortunately.
  11. My wife does read some shit...

    Is that Les Dawson?
  12. Plumbers! Simple question

    You MUST also get the insert that goes into the plastic pipe.It could be fine for months/years but all of a sudden it will blow the fitting off without it. http://www.screwfix.com/p/hep2o-hx60-15ws-smartsleeve-pipe-inserts-15mm-10-pack/3158f
  13. Dark Side May Be Calling

    I'm also considering a merc at the moment. A 2011 E220 CDI blueefficiency Avantgarde. Has anybody had any experience of these? Are they quick when you need them to be? I know nothing about Mercs but this one does look appealing.Only 29k miles and up for £12500 main dealer.
  14. Im SHAFTED big time

    How come it suddenly dawned on them to check the engine number AFTER the engine had been removed? It's as if they have gone "whoa! this is going to cost a lot to put right we better check it's legit" when in my opinion they should have gone "this might cost a lot,we better check it out first." Not sure where you stand legally but on that basis i'd at least try and aim for a 50/50 repair
  15. Any plumbers on here need advice

    Decent prices there. The sink swap is probably just for the labour with a little bit of fettling if it's not a straight swap. The price for the bath seal probably includes a tube of silicone which for a decent make you're looking around the £10-£15 mark. Or you could seal the bath yourself. I'm a joiner and I've never been 100% with my sealant until I got my hands on a set of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cramer-40405-5-Fugi-Kit/dp/B003BNLQQ0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487967033&sr=8-1&keywords=fugi+kit You can throw the silicone on any old way and these will still give you a showwroom finish.
