  1. That Z looks really well Richard,hope everything goes to plan for you,nice trip down the A702/A701 over the Devils Beeftub from Edinburgh to Moffat before hitting the M74/M6 should get you accustomed with the Z nicely.
  2. I live Trentham and work out of Burton for Coleman International.
  3. Looks really well Matty,i,ll have to keep my eyes peeled for you around the Potteries,weekends i,m either in the Touring or 325Ci
  4. Welcome to the forum Wakey,pics always appreciated on here.
  5. He should of gone to Big Boys Prison not Young Offenders,that would wipe the smugness away pretty quickly.
  6. Got a nice shine on her now Simon, Have you put that fence up to stop it going missing without your permission
  7. Welcome Craig, any pics of the F10?
  8. As Andrew says John,nice looking straight e39 you,ve got there.
  9. Lovely looking car in my opinion,still miss my early 740i.

  12. Mine are a bit dull on the tailgate,i normally spray them with silicone dash cleaner between washes,just brightens them up a bit

  16. Welcome to the Forum Big Muz,plenty of helpful folks on here to advise with any issues.
  17. Bought this from Pets at Home last week for our Hartley,but he,s a stubborn soul and refuses to walk up it,prefering to climb in the Touring with a helping hand from me, It,s brand new and will hold dogs upto 200 pounds in weight,cost £60 would like £30 collected from Stoke on Trent M6 Jct15.
  18. Not far from me,i,m in Trentham.
  19. Great pics there Mark,thanks for sharing,wouldn,t mind the Mk1 Granada Ghia or the big Opel Commerdor in my garage.
  20. Been to see Harty today,he looks a bit battered and bruised and got really tired after only 15mins or so which is to be expected, Surgeon says the next few days are a critical time as this is when Hartys intestine could break up due to the op which entailed cutting the intestine to remove the Lymphona, Harty still has the Lynphonas in his neck and behind his knee in one of his back legs,hopefully the test results will be back tomorrow to identify what type of cancer it is and the course of treatment to follow, Harty is still reluctant to eat which could be either discomfort from his neck Lymphona or just that he doesn,t feel like eating due to all the activity going on with him. So he,s not out of the woods yet but we know he,s getting the best care at Liverpool and are very happy with his treatment so far, Few pics from today
  21. Thanks for sharing,i,ve always liked the look of the A8.One would certainly be on my list when the time comes to replace the Sport Tourer.
  22. Cleaned both of ours,I think the transmission bell is starting to toll on the faithful 3.0i Sport Tourer,I don,t normally drive it that much but have been lately ferrying Harty to vets and Liverpool,anyway noticed a very faint occassional squealing noise from underneath and a definite harsher gear change when slowing down to a stop, I had the filter and oil changed in the autobox 3yrs ago just because mileage was creeping upto around the 150,000 mile mark,never had any issues before or after. Driving in manual mode and everything is fine,i,ve told Donna who drives it everyday to report back any untoward goings on,but to be honest i,m not holding my breath as when i mentioned the faint squealing she said Oh yes its been doing that for ages,Doh !
  23. Just spoke to his surgeon again and he says Harty is still very groggy but that will be to do with the blood transfusion he had and the anaemic reaction he had to it which they are controlling with medication,he ate yesterday but today hasn,t really bothered, Donna and I are going to see him tomorrow,the vet has asked us to bring some of his favourite foods with us to see if this encourages him to eat a bit more regularly, As we understand it he will start his course of chemotherapy once his intestine has healed up completely, Can,t wait for tomorrow now.
  24. Very Very sad news,Rest in Peace Keith.
  25. You,re right there Duncan,we,re missing him so much,hopefully going to see him this weekend.
