Hi all, I've been lurking in the forum for a few weeks as I've got £1500 in my pocket and my heart set on a GT JTS. Obviously, I'd really like something that's not going to fall to pieces within a few hundred miles, but the question is - at this budget, should I really be expecting some pricey...
Currently have Sava Eskimos all around, but they are pretty old, about 2012 I think. They slide everywhere even with light throttle. When I floor it the car has a lot of trouble keeping straight, and I can't launch above 2500 RPM.
Was thinking of getting two new Eskimos, or add a bit and get...
I'm after a 159 sportswagon 1.9 diesel (avoiding the 2.4 to keep insurance and tax down) on a fairly limited budget. For example there is a 2007 159 lusso with 142,000 on the clock from a dealer nearby for £2800. This would probably suit me just fine.
My only worry is, at that mileage, how much...
How do you apportion your car budget?
Looks, gadgets or engine?
Lots of people here in DERV land buy the tiny engine
base model version of cars.
Personally I go for the biggest engine and then add other spec
up to the budget.
But on other car forums many people seem to go for the...
I get the feeling, after signing up for all Land Rover's promotional guff
when taking delivery of the Ewok, that JLR's marketing budget
is HUGE !!!

Quite pleased with myself today. Bought some fairly cheap standard car mats (cos being a stereotypical Scot I couldn't bring myself to pay the eye watering £123 for the official Brera ones!):wow: However I bought some iron on Alfa patches and have given them a posher look. Whaddya think...
So after the helpful info last week on how fellow afla owners have fitted CF2's to there GTA's, I went ahead and removed the CF3 manifolds with the engine in place.
Now before people start saying I should have removed the engine I was doing this a cheaply as possible, not because...
After a 1.9 or 2.4 Diesel Alfa 147 or 156.
Alfa 156 is preference but happy with whats available. I've got a budget of £1500 to spend max and it must have MOT and TAX.
I'm Birmingham based.
Hi all, I'd recently posted re. finding a 156 V6 SW, but their rarity may be a bit of an issue unless I wait around for years. So, I'll either give up on the V6 part or the SW part. What do people think one should have to pay for a really really good v6? I'm really looking for an owner like me...
Would you use one?
I had a fault claim (settled for £3000/no personal injury) in December in my previous car so I wasn't expecting my insurance to be great this year but using confused.com, I've been quoted cheaper this year than last year!
Now, my last car was a 2.0 RS Clio so I...
Report: Budget Tyres Could Kill, But at Least They?re Quiet
Read the response from the Ovation representative which is resonably fair given how Whatcar? slanted their review!!
I have had mid priced tyres.. Falkens, Nexen, Rainsport etc. all along (given how much premium brands cost!) and...
so, do I get a '98 V6 with 97k on the clock (will need new front discs and pads), silver, red leather, ragazzon exhaust, spoiler, FSH with bills, Q2, bushes done, belts done at 76k. £2200
a fully prepared 100k V6 from a known dealer? Fully loaded car, non q2 though. £4000
I know I said I was retiring my 156 V6 after an enjoyable winter, but its still sitting here and looking bright and shiny and...well I miss it! Yes I know, you have heard it all before! And I said I would never be seen dead with an Alfa, and now I dont want to see it go...:lol: Could it...
Don't get too excited. It's hard to believe that they have been so generous.
" In addition to the freeze in fuel duty announced in today's Budget, there was good news for owners of classic cars, as the date from which vehicles are exempt from VED will be moved to 1974.
