  1. My question is, why are they now dead? What you been doing to them?
  2. Oh...I'd almost rather jump through hoops and have common sense used in court.
  3. Apparently though in the US there's no CRA on cars. So even if you buy from a trader it's never 100% sure you're going to get a good car. That's what my friend said any way.
  4. Nick, I'm not too into politics, but I think most of the damage was done by the current Tory leadership, not because of Brexit. Crime and policing is down to their budget, and they have severely messed up the country.
  5. Jesus....that's unbelievable. I know BMWs look good, but I don't understand why they're so popular, considering their mechanical reputation. ...and on, and on, and on and Ariston
  6. According to our BMW guy, the newer 4 cylinder petrol engines are even worse.
  7. 1.0 Ecoboost, anything with an Audi/VW DSG box, Ford automatics, anything under 1.2L, soon see BMW N43 engines on the list, Vauxhalls generally (can't remember the last time we bought one). Got a top(ish) spec Cat N 2017 Civic that we can't sell to save our lives, so I don't know how good of a seller they are. It's silver and a Cat N, so I can't judge it clearly. Not in a rush to buy another one though. Even if it's a straight one.
  8. I spent 2 hours in the gym this morning. The only upside to the rain and having no covered unit to work in. Doesn't look like the rain is going to stop any time soon, either.
  9. Autoglym 5L. Spreads well, thick enough and lasts long enough.
  10. Most of our cars are diesels, rarely have petrols in fact. Never had much of a problem. People do ask about DPF issues occasionally, but that's about it. With the Birmingham congestion zone, I imagine that might change for our more local customers.
  11. Haha, come to the dark side and let it all out.
  12. I was going to say crying myself to sleep haha. You beat me to it.
  13. Someone was telling me about Peugeots that with those symptoms it's the timing...? Not sure at all though.
  14. Haha, I might consider it. He seems stern though. Is he a looker? Anyone seen that dominatrix lady down South I think? She's 60-odd, you pay her £150 an hour to clean her house and be abused by her. No sex either, you can only "worship" her feet up to her ankles. Not a bad gig at all, and no screamers either
