I think that's the first time I have ever seen a brick spray painted black.

Re: Help!

Might have to look at an alternative part which would still work/fit, so at least it would keep your car on the road.

You could always change it for the correct part if one comes along at a future date.

Re: £1000 for one wheel

I don't know if that's the case here, but sellers will often inflate a price to a silly figure to prevent it being sold, if they have momentarily run out of stock. It saves them having to remove it and making a new listing at a later date thereby incurring another fee.

Re: Breakdown Cover

Phone them and just say please could you drop the price by £40 (or your desired figure) then you will take it. They will disappear to 'speak' to someone else for a few seconds then most likely say ok yes we can do that. I've just told them I'm not renewing. They'll ask why so I explain that I'm not...

Re: Brake caliper restore

Anyone had problems with the springs clunking as the steering is turned ? Mine used to do this and I think the spring was on it's way out, as it did snap at one point. Put new springs on and it never happened since. I would make sure that the end of the springs locate in the cups properly, there is...

Re: Breakdown Cover

Out of curiosity, what's the best tactic? Is it to say that you're leaving, or simply ask for their best deal? Phone them and just say please could you drop the price by £40 (or your desired figure) then you will take it. They will disappear to 'speak' to someone else for a few seconds then most li...

Re: New Capri book is weeks away

You surprised me a little there Andrew, I recall the two options over the Practical Classics magazines specials, where you chose the standard edition, what is it that enticed you to pay the extra £30 this time around? Just curious :) You only live once! I must have had a change of mind about the Pr...

Your bank (assuming they would offer this, you would need to check), may want around £10 per month Peter.
