  1. I have a spare Energizer on the shelf here, similar price to matthew. If they have any courtesy about them it will be less than a fiver, free as it's the season of goodwill. Alternatively the battery will be £9.99 and .25hrs to fit and test it...
  2. BMW Bavarian motor woe

    As above, sadly the finance company only care about one thing - their cash. They will pursue you for payment and this will, in the main be an automated process. You have also more than likely signed to authorise the work by the garage. Did you pay the initial purchase deposit by cc by any chance?
  3. Best cheap anti theft solution?

    For "Anti theft" I'd be looking at some physical security (disclock, moving the obd port etc.) and a decent immobiliser. Trackers are for getting it back when it's been ragged about, personally they can keep mine, I don't want it back. Ref the phone thing, you can get a signal jammer for around £20 so a waste of time in most cases.
  4. Just did a run from Barnsley to Bristol and back, averaged 50 going down on Monday and 47 coming back up today due to the detour i had to do via Brum, as usual, it performed faultlessly and is a real pleasure to drive.
  5. What's being worked on today?

    That garage floor is minging, I'd be gutted if they hoofed their dirty trainers in my car...
  6. This months stupid award goes to....

    There is a guy from the UK who does the very same, sits and comments on games, he was on the radio this week and his earnings are 12 million.
  7. This months stupid award goes to....

    The little prick was interviewed on radio yesterday, laughing and joking, he sounded as thick as pig shit and said he'd had a great result. Sounded like someone I'd never tire of punching.
  8. Some tw*t has nicked me car....

    Came downstairs into the garage for my trainers and shorts, forgot to put the shorts on. Easily done.
  9. Any watch Fans if so let’s see them

    I've bought my son a couple of Seikos over the past few years, I like the Seiko range very well respected.
  10. Any watch Fans if so let’s see them

    I have a 1967 Datejust, a Constellation, and a couple of cheap auto's. The best and most accurate one I have cost me £16 from Argos about 20 years ago, Sekona iirc.
  11. This months stupid award goes to....

    TBF the best thing they could have done is left it on and thrown him in the river.
  12. Some tw*t has nicked me car....

    As above the main thing is everyone's OK. If it's any consolation, as I was leaving to play squash on Wednesday evening my wife tapped on the window and called me back in.... I was in my pants, I'd forgot to put my shorts on!
  13. Middle 'headlights' do what?

    Following on from the other 'dickhead lights' thread, I often think about a scatter lazer as payback for giving me retinal damage.
  14. LED Rear Number Plate Lights

    I'm sure I've said before but I'm a big hater of non OEM front lights, the amount of tards I see daily (nightly) with superbrightdazzledickhead lights astounds me. Just a shame there not brought to task as I'm almost certain few, if any, would be compliant or CE marked. Seems to be a lot of VW/Skoda/Seats with uber bright lights around here, but they are now appearing on everything from T5's to Tranny vans and Zafira's.
  15. Middle 'headlights' do what?

    Imagine what it'd be like with 4....
