  1. i live in hounslow, and over time ive noticed the standards of driving drop big time! I just dont know how people get a driving license these days. Its anything from ignorant assholes in their beamers/mercs to litttle gits in their old skool hondas...all thinking they own the road or sumthing. You hardly get a thank you these days for giving way and worst of all people give YOU dirty looks when they have done something stupid on the road.
  2. just got busted doing 145mph

    Sorry to hear that bruv. Bought back memories of when i got busted doing twice over the speed limit on 40mph dual carriage way. F knows how i still managed to hold onto my licence and not get any points.
  3. GOlf VR6 auto

    ive had mine for 2 years now. Quiet fun to drive. But to be honest the next car im going to get will be manual. It can get a bit boring after a while. Ive added a bmc filter to mine. Kickdown is quiet potent especially when u do it at 20mph. You can always use gears 1,2,3 manually if you want. double pressing the accelerator drops the gears if you want responsivness. They are good runners, but as i said, can get a tad boring.
  4. I HAVE AN AUTO. HAD TO HAVE A RE-BUILD DONE LAST YEAR. NORMALL THE AUTO'S DO NEED ONE AROUND 70K (ish). AFTER THE WORK WAS DONE, I COLLECTED THE CAR, I NOTICED I USED TO GET SCREECHES WHEN THE GEARS CHANGED. I DIDNT TAKE MUCH NOTICE OF IT. THE SECOND WEEK I NOTICED THE CAR WAS PULLING OF IN HIGH GEARS. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE GARAGE AND THEY PUT IT ON THEIR DIAGNOSTIC MACHINE WHICH SHOWED A INTERMITENT PROBELM WITH A SOLENOID. (DONT KNOW WHICH ONE). AS I WAS DRIVING AROUND WITH AN AUTO CAR STUCK IN A HIGH GEAR THE GEARBOX BURNT OUT AGAIN. TOOK IT BACK TO THE GARAGE AND THIS TIME THEY SORTED OUT THE GEARBOX AND FITTED A NEW SOLENOID UNDER WARRANTY. ITS BEEN OK SINCE. (TOUCHWOOD!)
  5. is it worth using shell optimax

    i decided to use shell optimax last week. Toped the tank right up. The car did feel more responsive and mpg slightly improved aswell.

  7. Ive just had my pants down.

  8. Ive just had my pants down.

    i mean...... this is going back to october 2004, the money came into my account, and i spent it here and there... bought a few bit'n'bobs....the normal stuff you'd expect. Im left with a paypal account of -£500. I mean WTF....you wouldnt expect this 4 months later would you? cash in hand from now on.......cash in hand baby......
  9. Back in october 2004, i advertised some alloys with tyres on ebay for £650. They were purchased by a ebayer, who decided to pay £150 cash upon delivery and £500 with credit card through paypal- due to his credit limit only being £500. I thought fair enough. Once the payment had cleared through paypal and into my account, he came over and paid the remaining £150 and collected the goods. About 6 weeks ago i recieved an email from paypal, informing me, my paypal account had a unauthorised transaction and the payer was disputing the transaction??? Some term on paypal called "chargeback" which means my paypal account will remain in -£500 balance till the matter is resolved. I was advised to reply asap in my good interest. And so i did, stating the whole process as to what went on. Today i recieved an email from paypal saying: "After careful consideration of the evidence provided by you and the buyer in the case referenced above, we have determined that you are liable for the chargeback amount" Obviously the guy has managed to wriggle his way out of it, and totally denied any involvement in the transaction. I even emailed paypal telling them why has it taken the payer sooo long to report this. The guy never left me feedback and probably never ever traded on ebay ever again. It sucks, im left with a outstanding balance of £500 and other guy got what he wanted for £150.
  10. Whats your opinion about the Golf R32?

    Probably what every good looking single guy wants powerfull' date=' comfortable, not too harsh on servicing costs, nice exterior styling, reliable- should stay with me for a few years to come, and must be good for day to day driving. Mistake me if im wrong.....A few people have mentioned to me, that scoobys and evo arent really ideal for day to day driving. [ Edited Mon Jan 17 2005, 04:10PM ']
  11. im planning on buying a car this summer, but im finding it hard to decide which one to get. Ive looked at the bmw 330 ci, integra type r, R32, Audi S3, EVO 7/8. I was reading the top gear report on www.topgear.com about the R32, and it sounded like it wasnt all that. Anyone fill me in....
  12. hi all! Ive noticed recently i have to keep topping on my coolant level every 2 weeks or so. I went down to a garage earlier on today to get a bit of advice. The vehicle was on the ramps for about 15 minutes and there wasnt even one drop of coolant leak. How ever i did mention to mechanic that there is always a trail of coolant in the driveway when ive just started the engine or just switched it off. He replied it doesnt make a difference whether the engine is on or off. He pressure tested the coolant system with 15 pounds off pressure and there were no signs of leaks at all. He told me the headgasket is on its way out???? Me being worried as you expect, drove home and parked the car up in the driveway. I left the engine running and noticed a trail of fluid from under the car making its way into a nearby gutter. I left some tissues under the car to catch some drips. The tissues were pink after a couple of seconds. Now....im not a mechanic, but this bandit working in the garage is obviously talking crap. It seems like a pipe situated left to the thermostat housing which seems to be leaking.
