  1. I know that's not many of you! Ha But what should the tyre pressures be? 38 all round? 36 front 38 rear? 36 all round? 40..... Does it make a difference being a 4x4? Even though (I think?) it's 70% of the power to the rear and 30 up front? Cheers

    Wheeler Dealers Series 16

    Oh dear! You mean to tell me that silly nugget is telling lies about cars that he’s trying to sell.... well I never! TBF it came on last night an I put myself through about 2mins of it (the bit where he went to meet the seller) and promptly switched it off! The man just grates on me!

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    Yes! Like your style! Crushed codeine mixed in a whiskey, you don’t need many of them to feel great again! many moons ago I was on some form of blood thinning tablet as I had a super ropy back and boy oh boy if you drank a few beers when you had had one of them I’d used to just fall over! I’d have zero memory of anything for about 10 min then I’d come round, still be pissed but could actually function(ish) then the memories would come flooding back! Thought it was a form of rohypnol! forgot to mention about another pub that’s very close to my house (is there any wonder why I drink a few to many all the time? there’s 3 pubs and 3 off license’s all within a 10 min walk from my house....) but this pub has just re-opened and I’m not a fan of the lagers on tap but they do 3 bottles of Heineken for £5! That’s almost as cheap as asda!

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    See everyone has a hidden alcoholic in them somewhere.... Yeah yeah, more like you asked for a beer and the wife said something along the lines of everyone will be looking at us and judging me (why they always think it’s about them I’ll never know... ) and your reply was but every other bloke has a beer, we’ll be spoke about if I DONT have one!

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    Yes I know! like I say, I no longer complain about the price of a pint in this country! I was in the lakes a few weeks ago and it’s £5 a pint no matter where you went! Obviously there’s places that just rip people off but you steer clear of them

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    Yeah, I stopped in a small village on my way back from Paris in 2017 and found the only pub called “la bar”! I shit you not and it was 2.50€ for a 25cl bottle of Heineken! Which I drank them out of BTW! A 25cl glass of Alfrigem was 4.30€ yes that’s almost £9 a pint! Im yet to go to Dubai or the Middle East and don’t really want to if I’m honest....

    Question Time £5.19 for a pint

    On the scouse riviera where I currently reside it’s anywhere from £3 to £5 and that’s a range of beers as well! I can buy a pint of Heineken for £3 in an independent pub or I can pay £4.05 for one in a brewery owned boozer or somewhere in the middle at Mr wetherspoons! At the pub around the corner from my house it’s £3.65 for carling then at the other pub around the other corner from my house it’s £3.89 for San Miguel. Then it’s £5 for a pint of Moretti at a few places along Lord street! After going Amsterdam last year I now don’t complain about the price of a pint over here!
  8. What the fecking hell is going on at BMW? Did they see the new Range Rover and G wagon and thought I think there’s a market for a car that size but even uglier than the Bentley Bentaga? Jesus Christ this looks awful! https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/life-style/cars/1032627/BMW-X7-2019-price-specs-release-date/amp and you thought the new 7 was gopping..... that grill looks like it belongs on one of them Australian road trains to stop kangaroos from getting sucked in....

    M57 3.0D remap

    I know I know, I’ve not got a 3.0d but I have got a 2.0d and I’m currently using one of them tuning boxes and it does make a difference, the car isn’t sluggish any more and the range is up at around 60-100 miles more than standard. I bought it if a member on here and I can’t remember what make it is now? Some people swear by them and others will not touch them at all! People have reported issues when using them, but I’ve not had any issues that I would say the tune box has caused. I’ll find out which one it is tomorrow when I’m topping up the oil

    Advice on selling a car....

    WBAC- yes I’d imagine they’ll chip you at least 10%! Just pull your big boy pants up and sell it like normal people. All the doubts your having about selling the car to “wrong-uns” true buyers have the same doubts about buying from “dodgy used car sales man” you know like Mike gobshite cheeky chappy hold your hand out Brewer.... It’ll be fine

    Insurance Hike

    For every person that does what you done paddy there’s hundreds that don’t! I used to be with direct line when I had my 535i and every year the same thing, renewal comes through it’s gone up even though I’ve earned a years no claims discount, so would go on line to their website and start a new policy with them and hey presto it’s significantly cheaper than the previous years and the renewal! Would then phone them to cancel/start new cover and to ask why they didn’t just send my the better renewal quote to which the person on the other end of the phone would say it’s not us it’s generated by the computer..... yeah right! More like your trying to con customers out of more money than they need to! So then I’d say well if the computer has generated a “new” quote for me and it’s cheaper then why would the same computer generate a higher quote for an existing account? Then the normal response I got was that’s all set up for you, is there anything else I can help you with? Nothing but common thieve’s! At least Dick Turpin wore a mask.....

    New car

    What about this? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F292381027379 its certainly got road presence..... but you’d need to wear your Burberry cap sideways and make sure you’ve got the whitest of white trainers on at all time

    What did you try before you went for a G31

    But that only works if you stay with the dealer does it not? Or at very least the brand? Or is it guaranteed no matter where you go as it’s with a finance company?

    New car

    So it is!
  21. Grand Dragon

    New car

    Cayenne turbo? Panamera (turbo if possible?) RS6 then map it! The V10 RS6 then map it! A stage1 see’s around 700-750bhp can you get a Maserati for your budget? R35 GT-R? That jag 4x4 (the big one not the one the size of a Q3) the supercharged one? Aston Martin (it’ll be old but it’s an Aston) IF you can stretch to £120k+ the Lamborghini urias (or whatever it’s called?) the 4x4 oh what about the Alfa Romeo Guilia V8 https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/alfa-romeo/giulia-quadrifoglio

    What did you try before you went for a G31

    Does it not concern any of you that the dealers are offering good or better discounts on new models and therefore have an abundance of stock available and that will have a knock on effect come resale/trade in time? I’ve never bought a car new and never will (thanks to my dad who used to work as one of them blokes that pushes new cars onto people ) so I don’t really get the discount thing? Shouldn’t the car be 10/20/30% cheaper to begin with if the dealer has that much room to knock off straight away? or am I just simplifying it to much or just being a bit of a mong about it?

    LLO4

    Back to the cheap LL04 oil I bought some before and it was £14 not £15! I wonder how long til the engine locks up as it’s not oil it’s actually rabbit tears and dodo foreskin mixed together I’ll report back if anything happens (not likely)
