    Blue Brothers

  11. I had an 02 reg 3ltr and found it to be a great car,as Gary says the 70k mileage mark is the hurdle to get past,to be fair apart from a Jaguar recall for the expansion bottle which are prone to cracking om the seam identified early by drips of water on the floor by the drivers side wing back edge my car was totally trouble free,autos ate known to give problems but mostly software problems i think, Depreciation is the cars biggest fault unfairly in my opinion as they,re great cars

    Thinking about getting a Doberman

    We have a Bullmastiff,he,s our third one,lost our 1st Henry to cancer at the age ot 6,then after much thought had another,Harvey he lived till he was just past 9yo had trouble with arthritus his last 3yrs finally his cruciate ligament and age forced us to put him to sleep,and after 6mths of mourning and deliberation we now have Hartley who is just coming upto his 3rd birthday,he,s a brilliant dog,pet,friend in every way, Like all dogs the Bullmastiff have their problems but the rewards for us outweigh the negatives.Hartley has come from excellent blood lines which we hope will narrow the chances of health problems later in life for him, Whichever dog you choose i wish you well
