  1. My first ever parking ticket

    General Motoring Discussion
    Poot. The car park was free if you stayed less than 90 minutes, but I failed to read further and see that in that circumstance you still needed to get a ticket from the machine. I have appealed on the grounds that I didn't realise, and I didn't stay longer than the 90 mins, and asked for...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Not sure what section this goes to but decided to raffle off my car. Raffling off my 2004 1.6 Alfa 156 Lusso on the first Irish National lottery bonus ball after the raffle sells out at €30 a ticket. 1.6TS TI Lusso spec 156 with 120hp Variable valve timing. NCT was up end of February 2018...
  3. Might buy a lottery ticket!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Well, I'm feeling quite lucky today! Needed to move the 164 out of the garage, so decided to warm it up properly and collect the wee lad from school while it was out. Stank of fuel when I started it up. I'd been wondering about the short hose inside the fuel tank, because I'd thought there...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Due to circumstances way beyond my control, I find myself with a surplus adult general admission ticket for Sundays race (30/8). Face value is £70 so obviously I'd be happy to recoup what I've already paid, however I am reluctantly open to serious offers. I also have a childs under 11 ticket...

  8. Speeding ticket

    General Motoring Discussion
    Got my first speeding fine today :-( Doing 60mph in the 50mph bit leading up to the M4 bridge toll booths. I saw the van as well but didn't have time to slow down. I always turn my cruise control off (which is set to 70-75mph) and let the car just slow down unless there are cars in front of me...
  9. Officius parking "enforcement"

    Rant Room
    Before I get started, I have to state that I don't think it is OK for people to park anywhere and flout rules because they think they are above them or are too lazy to walk. I've only ever picked up one parking ticket in my life and it was fair enough and about 30 years ago. OK? My dad lives on...
