Re: Insurance surprise

A lot depends on where you live as well. You're not kidding... I've got over a decade of no claims, the last points went on my licence when Jim Callaghan was running the country, and I'm just over 60. But my premium would pay almost three of some folks on heres :shock: :D But there aren't many plac...

Re: Stolen :(

Oh for something as simple as a distributor rotor arm... Based on my experience with a scroggy little Suzuki 120 motorbike, back when the world was young, if the thieving toerag can't start it easily, it is likely to end with a visit from Sam and his mates, in their bright red lorry :evil: But at l...

Re: Online handbook MY 2016

First time I saw your post, Fighterpilot, none of the 2016s showed up in Firefox, but I've just tried again and all the ones that should have, showed...

Maybe the JLR tea-person leant on the wrong button, and one of the real techies put it right? :D

Re: Radiator grill

My first car was an exceptionally rusty 11-year-old Austin Maxi, and I remember being amused at all the people in other Maxis with cardboard over the grille at the front in winter. The Maxi, of course, was transverse engined, with the radiator hanging off one end, and large air slots inside the app...

Re: Insurance surprise

Insurance renewed now for a price I can live with... Got a couple of quotes I was relatively happy with, and then rang up my existing provider to cancel. "What is your best current quote, Sir?" Give them a slightly lower number.... "The computer says we can get within a pound of that" So I'm now onl...

Re: Swapped the XE for an XF Sportbrake!

Noisy fan seems to be an issue on some E-Paces. Not a problem I'd noticed, it was something showing up as a pos...
