    Hi Stamped book to 125k and lots of invoices to back up. I'm open to offers, though. I'm assuming whatever price I ask I'll get knocked down. Thanks for the advice. Ian

    Road Tax Fine

    100% agree, this is what HM Government agreed to do about 15 years ago, also justified as ensuring overseas visitors who drove here paid a bit more as well (no Swiss style road pass here). However what they did was massively increase the fuel tax and also the RFL at the same time............hmmmm, why do we not trust politicians?

    Happy New Year Bump! Trying to tax car online but can't as the DVLA said they had sent V5 on 18 Dec (ergo cant use new keeper slip) and it hasnt arrived....................oh joy, so its queueing at Post Office today for me! Couldn't SORN it for same reason on 18th - the system is stupid.

    XC90 yeah or Nae?!?

    My wife must be a cheap date - she took some persuading to spend £5K on an 11 reg Hyundai i30 last year!! Only a 1.4 but its a great car, cant help wondering why they don't make a hot one with 300bhp!! Ian

    So I been caught speeding :(

    ......and the Legality, it is illegal to put speed cameras up on normal roads unless there has been a minimum number of accidents over a fixed period, or if the design of the road (eg blind junction) makes it a risk. Does this not also apply to our safest roads - ie motorways? Reluctantly I'd say if the balance of the existence of these things is safety based (which I doubt in most cases) I don't think any of us can object - but a speed camera wont catch the new C Class Merc at 8pm on the M40 doing 60mph in the overtaking lane (3), with no rear lights on...........front LEDs only on Sunday!

    2002 530i Sport (Genuine) Auto 140K SOLD

    Pics now, no water where it is at moment (and below freezing) so its still not been polished. General views plus all areas of corrosion I can find. No rust on boot lid - yes really! Last Pic is scuff on NSR door only, looks like a parking graze. Ian

    2002 530i Sport (Genuine) Auto 140K SOLD

    OK so i now have car, Porsche blew up again after selling it but i've sorted that with buyer. In any case the 530 is available, i'll get some pics when cleaned this weekend - its a lovely car with a few age related blemishes as would be expected, only damage is scuff to underside of OSF bumper and the usual broken undertray there. It has the 18 inch staggereds with good tyres, no pixies missing on dash, very clean inside bar broken cupholder - manual non heated leather, Runs beautifully. On reflection I'd be happy with £2000 ovno. Reg if needed is EX02 CHF Ian
  15. SOLD TO A VERY NICE CHAP - FROM DUSSELDORF! Ive been offered the above car in PX against my 944 (don't ask!), Silver/Black leather and great condition/history and all HPI clear, long mot with one advisory (cant remember what but think dust cover) - I'm thinking of taking it as I just want to see the back of the Porsche now as its not been a match made in heaven - hell possibly............. Anyway whilst the 530 Saloon is very nice, its not what I'm after long term so if anyone is after a decent one of these please let me know, I'd be looking around the £2,300 mark tops. To pre empt a question or two, I think a decent 530 Sport will be easier to resell than a track focussed 944 with a sketchy history - not doing that one again. £1400 anyone? See pics PM me if interested Ian
