ok so I will start by saying I broke my own cardinal rule of never going to any of the national chains such as kwik fit,ATS or the company in question here national tyres and Autocare..
But I needed alignment and thought what could possibly go wrong...? they can do that right..? so I printed...
Obviously the advertising standards authority (ASA) had a laugh as well and threw it out!!!!!

I have a G with the MA endive, now I have always wanted to make it the twin exit look, for balance more than anything thing.
My question is (this is a serious one and I expect a ribbing for it) can I fit the diesel exhaust to my MA? I genuinely don't know if it is even remotely...
For 3 yrs i ran a 2006 159 jtd 160k on the clock befoe selling last year. I commute 70 miles a day and did european hols in it. In that time in our staff car park wev'e had £20k mercedes e class and bmw diesel 3 series both less than 4 yrs old towed away for breakdowns
Today was the best my...
Well i just wanted to give some praise to my 156 v6 which has just gone through its 5th mot under my ownership with only its first 2 advisories in all that time (headlamps hazing slightly) but my mechanic did say the light emitted was still as it should be.
Ive done my own servicing in the...
So, I have collected my brand spanking new G less than 2 weeks ago. Done about 500 miles. Saturday morning we set off to Gatwick for a flight to Norway.. There was about 20ltrs of fuel left in tank so first stop was a petrol station at 4am.. 40ltrs added and a very nice 120 miles of motorway...
Ha Ha You couldn't make it up! If I want my reversing lights and parking sensors to work I just press the button for the heated rear screen AND THE PASSENGER SIDE REVERSING LIGHT AND THE REAR PARKING SENSORS ARE WORKING ALL THE TIME! Even I had to laugh what a shambles! What Varaiva's have done...

My neighbour wakes up one frosty morning last week, and decides not to thaw his rear window, but to reverse straight into my beloved GT - totalling the door. :cry:
GT has now gone to get a new door fitted, and I was provided with a hire car, and was told I'd...
Right lads, I'm going to do the shave or dye thing but I'll dye a silly colour for a couple of weeks then shave me barnet. I'll stick up a few pics for your amusement.
I have a mycharity link so if anyone has a couple of quid after the wishbones and timing belts have been done its for a really...
So am planning on buying a black '51 1.6 147 at a seized auction. For the price I reckon it'll go for/I am willing to pay, I'll still make money if I break it. It's got a long mot on it so best case scenario, it still runs but it doesn't come with keys so worst case scenario, it doesn't have...
Just been quoted £165 :wow:to replace front offside sidelight on my GT 3.2 V6.
I know some places can charge a lot cause of the bumper off etc... but is this a record?
Needless to say I WONT be booking it in with Caledonia Preston.
You know the old cliche, "turn it off and back on again and it'll work" This has happened to to the front elec windows on my 156 twice in 2 days, they dont work when I start the car (back ones work fine every time), but if I turn it off an start up again they spring into life!? Guessing...
My hubby is my mechanic. Fully qualified, hunky dory cheap service for me :clap:
He serviced my car the other week....
The end of the exhaust fell off today :lol:
I think he might be fired
Obviously his services are not related to this misdemeanour.
Made me chuckle...
Good morning all,
After two and a half years of wonderfull motoring, my 159 1.9 JTDM has given me 3 weeks to forget. First, the clutch went whilst I was stuck in traffic in the outside lane of a busy dual carriageway (police had to move me!) - replaced along with dual mass flywheel and other...
