    Poncy puddle lights?

    I like them, been looking at adding them for a while. But then I have a pimp interior according to some, so it’s of a theme..

    Derry '72 - Soldier F

    This ^^^^ I do remember talking many years ago with a girlfriends father who served in a couple of ‘Regiments’ both in a uniform and perhaps one with less insignia, and he was saying it wasn’t unknown to spend a full week with various patrols being shot at or for locals to bait traps for the...

    Council Tax. How much?

    8% increase here, but less than what you’re paying. Have to fork out now for garden waste collection but that’s only £30 for 9 months ish. From what I can see the council here is one of the better ones in Wales. When you look at the finances you do wonder about the shortfalls.

    Bianco Gransport

    I drove one many years ago and thought it was possessed like Christine as I’m sure it was out to kill me.... It was the same white, I ended up purchasing a 156 instead but think it’s an itch that still needs scratching....

    Service interval mess

    Get it serviced, but I’ve always found Honest John will reply with great advice. Just drop him an email, even though he’s busy trading and writing for newspapers he’s never once not replied to a query. His last advice was to buy the best Maserati I could afford, advice echoed on this forum.

    Hi all, old bloke looking for a toy

    There is an element of shake, but no more so than the Audi S5 or the A4 cabs I’ve had previously. The wheel size and the low profile tyres do sometimes exaggerate the lumps and bumps of the great British roads. If your test drive is a decent one with a few types of roads that will give you a...

    New GT owner... with problems :(

    From what I’ve read you shouldn’t have to 1) take the car elsewhere and get the work done 2) do the work yourself As others have pointed out, go legal, get your money back then find a better , sorted , car and enjoy the motoring. A call to Trading Standards costs nothing but will lend power to...
