Might be worth spending the money on some treatment for that bad neck of yours.

Or did the lamp post just leap out at you? :wink:

car is going into college workshop Monday to have LOTS done, going to change all the bushes, tie rod ends are getting done, picking up a set of adjustable coilovers later wich will be put on Monday, tracking will be done once again, wheels are all getting balanced, atleast the labour is free :D
just took the car out on a quick run to go sign some paper work at college and went to have my dressings changed and noticed that when I first start it up its a bit smokey, but not much

even if I wanted to I could never do any of that stuff he does ! automatic gearboxes for me only ! saxo? ahhhh HEEELLL NAAHHH no chav mobiles for me. adjustable coilovers are only going on because I can get them cheaper than standard ones.

It can be quite liberating having a few dents. We are driving our S Max around with one side in a real mess after the other half met a log lorry. Won't bother to fix it until we are selling it. So glad we hadn't got it sorted yet when my workshop door swung against it a couple of weeks back!

I used to jump out of my beetle at work and let it park itself into a tree to get a laugh from my colleagues. A few scratches give a car character.
