  1. Recently did my nuts on a Golf DSG similar... Motronic unit was shagged. Tried another. Same. Even different gearbox. Same... Figure that out. Sold it for a big loss, as Spares / Repairs / Scrap
  2. Anything with a 2.0 petrol BMW engine!
  3. Surely such info would be a mere distraction from the facts?
  4. ...nor anywhere else at the present time so it would seem!
  5. I *very almost* advertised a 2012 Honda Jazz on AT yesterday - It's static on eBay Classifieds and Marketplace - not a sniff. The £62.95 was the reminder that the last "priced low" car on there attracted one call from a man a long way from Leicester wanting a "best price" due to distance... £62.95 saved.
  6. Yep, just sold a lovely 2005 WRX STi PPP Impreza, low mileage and pristine to a couple of lads who I agreed to meet at Stansted. 2 x Bank transfers later, they were driving it back to Hollyhead to catch the ferry home... He was made up with the car and in the trade also...
  7. Screwfix "Titan" wet/dry vacuums - unbeatable and cheap. VAX for shampooing interiors when the spray-foam won't cut it (available as recon on eBay brand new, for under £100)... Argos for pressure washer - look at flow rate and get a decent one for less than the price of a Karcher hose. Karchers, in my experience, don't last.

  9. ...did a deal on the car Friday evening to an older chap. Agreed a price. He asked if Cash or Bank Transfer was OK, and agreed to call before he left. Buyer coming from Southampton to Essex. No call by 11am. I work from home and he had my address so tried to call numerously throughout the day, being tied to the house. Eventually got through at 6.30pm. "I sent you an email saying I wasnt coming - cant get insured, sorry". Email was sent at 17:15 after having to wait in all day. Needless to say he was "enlightened". This car is a $&!* magnet
  10. Had it with a car I bought from Manheim. Their customer services emailed confirming it had no outstanding finance, and got it sorted for me with the finance company - it was an admin error.
  11. First off, disconnect the battery for 20 mins, reconnect and then see if that resets it. Also, on some of the other forums, playing around with the factory sound system (aftermarket head unit, speakers etc) can also cause the flash. Maybe someone changed the stereo and replaced it back to standard when selling the car?
  12. That's interesting... I obviously keep my own cars on a rolling D/Debit. Just a few of the more interesting ones I sometimes use for a bit - adds to the variety 'n all LOL!
  13. Don't worry about future updates... That just won't happen... I came from the iPhone. I used to hate Android (having spent only a few minutes on it), but became sick of Apple slowing the older phones down purposely through their OS updates so you buy another (Samsung and Apple have been fined for this). Having had the Huawei on Android, after a day I knew that there's no way I would go back to Apple... Its like unlocking the chains. As for the camera, image quality and phone in general - just incomparable in a good way!!!
  14. ...re P/Ex, had someone on an 12 plate E250 Coupe, 53k, Retail at £10,200. I'm at £8995. He then wants a p/ex against a no-MOT 2001 Golf V5. He says he's "valued" my car on WBAC plus then wants way over that on his... I didn't even want his POS. Imbeciles. The lot of them...
  15. Huawei Mate 20 Pro smartphone. Awesome pictures and a few lenses (including a wide lens, perfect for for the back through to front 2 x seats shot). Amazing bit of kit and so simple to use!
