  1. The 50 mpg club

    hurumph..... with a 3.0 TDI I've got no chance of joining this club... Now if it was the 45mpg club!!!!!!! then that would be a different matter.
  2. TT with identity crisis

    I spotted this TT in a hotel carpark whilst I was traveling down from Scotland. It was actually a really nice well presented car, apart from the RS badge and SLine badges on the side, it also had a carbon fibre bonnet (which you can just make out).... Less is more methinks...
  3. Barbecue

    I've managed to get you an invite to a big family BBQ at a mansion in Shropshire......... There will be plenty of beer, but sadly no Fosters. I'll get my coat..
  4. Now they want the shirt off your back

    I work as an Architect and I had point made to me the other day..... apparently to cast a metre cubed of concrete will produce the equivalent emissions of a trans atlantic flight (for 1 individual). Therefore I'll omit more concrete foundations to justify my holidays
  5. Poor parking.

    Parked next to my car a few weeks back!!!!!!!!!!
  6. Now they want the shirt off your back

    I think what annoys me anyway, is "Gas guzzlers" already get penalised at least twice that I can think of... 1. They have differnt bands of road tax which affects UK registered cars. Although it is skewed in that you get taxed the same if you drive it loads or not at all (bit like this parking proposal) 2. We get taxed on fuel, which I think is fairer in a way. The more you drive = The more you pay The less eficient = The more you pay Non UK registerd cars / untaxed cars also contribute.
  7. Smashed Window

    [ QUOTE ] I spring loaded center punch is even eaiser and quiter - but these cnuts never think of how there actions effect other people. Problem is even if they did get caught the most they would get is a slap on the wrists and told not to do it again (unless of course the onwer catches them - then they get a damn good kicking) [/ QUOTE ] and then the owner gets sent to jail
  8. Thought for the day

    We know exactly where any untaxed car is located among the millions of cars in Britain. But we haven't got a clue as to where thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists are located. Maybe we should put the DVLA in charge of immigration.
  9. Any AutoCAD users???

    Thanks for the offer........ I have just about every version available to me. Sad thing is, the libraries that come with it aren't up to much, Was kinda hoping that someone may have some nice libraries that they had created or obtained elsewhere. Thanks for trying.
  10. Any AutoCAD users???

    Just wondering if there are any AutoCAD users on here??? and if so, do you have any block libraries that you use and would be willing to share? I'm currently trying to compile a library of different things. At the moment I'm doing a vehicle library and a landsape library, but eventually I'll do people, furniture etc. Any help would be appreciated.

    Just had them phone up with a courtesy "Was everything Ok with the service, were you satisfied with the work" type phonecall. Said I was, but thought their hourly rates were a bit steep.
  12. Odd Question

    Are these any good?? http://www.emmarkuk.co.uk/downloads.cfm http://www.peatland.btinternet.co.uk/page2.html http://www.tractorsdirect.org.uk/PartsSale.htm http://www.best-used-tractors.com/aftermarket_part.html http://www.leylandtractors.com/
  13. Indoor Aerials for Freeview etc

    I think as long as you can get a fairly good anologue signal then you should be alright for the freeview box. Unfortunately I tried an indoor ariel and it was a bit poor for my area so the freeview box didn't like it. Actually put up an external one at the weekend and now I'm happy.
