Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Yep i watched the first episode yesterday and as other guys said it was ok but nothing great tbh. I get a bit bored though when the same "regular customers" snap up the cars purely for re-selling and making money. Prefer it when a private buyer gets one. On the standard Bangers and Cash b...

Re: Seen everything now

In my early teens I had a black and white portable in my bedroom and later a colour one.

I could never get away with putting it on late at night as the switch on the wall or the light under the door would alert my parents and I would get told to turn it off :swear: :lol:

Re: Seen everything now

40 + years ago there were better programmes on 4 channels than the 100 + available now :headscratch: Spot on. And that's why I'm still watching them, frequently/daily. Same goes for music too. Can't argue with that Paul :cheers: When channel 4 first come out ( can’t remeber date ) but late 80s when...

Don't want to miss it. :D

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Although advertised on Quest I can't see WD on 12th September schedule :headscratch: Then again it mentions Discovery on the preview so maybe I've got this one wrong :roll: The guide on Freesat only shows as far a week in advance, so it will be sometime before I will be able to check if WD is on Qu...

Re: Check those pipes…

I overheard someone at a carshow recently saying he had changed his fuel lines to R9 and he would now treat it as a serviceable item with more frequent checks/replacement.

Even Andrew can't agree that's reasonable :headscratch: :) :D It's a good job Andrew's such a good sport, with all this talk of gardeners, servants, maids, richness, mansions and high-cost-reasonableness. It's only in jest, I know for sure he's really a normal down to earth working class geezer. (H...

Good spot, it was sent to me and I didn't take much notice of the detail, I don't take much notice of anything royal family related tbh. Nor me, Wayne. I take a bit more interest when somebody buys a Ford Escort for not far off three quarters of a million pounds though (including fees)! Andrew. :ag...

Re: Sound levels

The loudest thing on earth is the lawnmower belonging to the bloke next door. Especially when he cuts the grass at 9 PM when I've got to get up early the next morning. :banghead: :lol: Andrew. That's just not cricket! Or maybe it is and he's cutting the wicket for a spin bowler :headscratch: :lol:
