You can rely on those yanks to keep the oil flowing though!!

Good job with these engines then. :D are you in single figures?

Do you think they are fighting the 'war on terror' on your behalf. :wink:

chfs911, are the split rims on the lups chrome, polished or just very shiney? i have a couple of sets for my golfs but not sure what to do with them. currently one set is satin black/polished lip and the others are standard silver/polished lip but fancy fully polishing a set


They are polished split rims from Polo GTI. It took 60hours of polishing by hand I am told to get them this nice.

They come off for the winter. Braso works well!

Time to lower the tone :lol:
Skoda Octavia 4x4. Comfy, ideal for the bikes, not fazed by the snow and fast enough for most stuff.

Hi Jimjim2012 and big.eck!

Wow, that's been a while.

I can see the proper 2.3-16 on your pic, mate.
For the time being we have something like 50 cm of snow all around so Baby Benz is sleeping. It would be a good fun to drive it on snow but government decided to put millions of tons of salt on the streets, so she must wait till spring :( .
Anyway - that's the message for all - keep your W201s alive - Mercedes has just started to treat them as classics :roll:

Cheers,
wooly

V6 4 motion sounds nice. But 20000 miles a year means it has to be diesel for me. Searched Audi A8's the other day whilst bored....won't happen though :lol:

Oooh a cars thread... I'm on Pistonheads with the same username. Having seen a couple of the other garages on here I suspect I'm not alone.

The Boxster S is a compromise car for me in that it is my daily driver and a plaything - but for trackdays I'm scared of bending it - so the Pork will make way fairly soon for a Caterham for playtime and a sensible Fiesta to get me to work. Just trying to work out which engine/body combo for the Caterham.

I can get my Cannondale in the Porsche, which has surprised a number of people in the Glentress car park as I fetch bits from the car and assemble my bike.

Clicky if you're interested:

I've been looking at Audis too Jack. I'm looking for an estate. I guess I've just got tired of the lack of a good heater in the Vito. I like the new A4 TDi S-Line Avants but seeing as a used RS6 is about the same price I'm becoming seriously tempted. :twisted:

Yeah i need to be sensible. Tasha should be passing her test in coming months, so will probably get a Fabia or fiesta as a 2nd car. I juts get bored of looking at this stuff and get distracted by Audis :twisted:
