  1. A few years ago a lad at work bought a big 4x4 Isuzu, nothing will stop me he said...... Until he left the road at speed on the way to work and nearly cut the thing in half when he hit a concrete fence post sideways. So I'll take skill and 2WD over a four wheel drive and a numpty any winter of the Century
  2. BMW 3 series touring, the E46 330 D's are unburstable and if properly looked after go forever. My mate has one as a daily hack and he racks up some serious miles, it's never missed a beat. And don't worry about winter just stick a couple of decent tyres on the rear end and learn to drive, I've never been stuck in either of my Beamers but then again I did my driving apprenticeship in Mk2 RS 2000's and 3.0 Ltr Capris in proper Scottish winters.
  3. No A bit of a mish mash and that big hand small hand thing just looks odd. Each to their own but not for me. The shirt is a bit dodgy as well
  4. Well spotted Yep that area currently has been given up for box storage but it is also used for hanging storage. There is literally miles of it. Coincidentally a lot of our stock comes to us air freight via LHR. 4XL fat b@stard t-shirts made in Cambodia flown half way round the world then trucked up from LHR to us here in the North East then unbelievably sorted and sent to various regional depots around the country one of which is only a few miles from Heathrow Airport then more trucking to a well known cheap sh!te retailer near you. All for five or six quid for two. Amongst various other cheap sh!te garments we move tons of them. Hardly surprising the world is fooked.
  5. Pick a box, any box Pallet trucking last night, I just wandered around with a few boxes looking like I was doing something with them. Money for old rope with the Seiko The place is huge, it has those lights that go on and off as you walk along it's a bit creepy late at night, you can wander around for hours on the mezenin floors and not see anyone.
  6. Why on earth would you associate your brand with a tacky night out in a scruffy North West seaside town I've no idea. "Black pool illuminations When light is low at depth, you need an exceptional lume, which is why the C65 Super Compressor’s indexes and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova® Grade X1 GL C1."
  7. I don't believe that for a minute I've had nothing but exemplary service from both Rolex and a couple of their Ad's both buying and serving. Not say there might be isolated issues but deliberately ripping off customers I doubt very much. They sent my watch back in as new condition with a two year warranty. Completely hassle free all be it a bit expensive but hey ho. I've visited an RSC, the place was spotless and the staff I did speak to couldn't have been more professional.
  8. Isn't there 24 hours in a day or as per usual am I missing something
  9. I paid £2800 for my LV about 15 or so years ago. If I got burgled or mugged tomorrow and on the off chance the perp survived (I'm getting older) What would I have lost. Seems these days sheeple are more concerned about "current over inflated value" than real life No pockets in shrouds
  10. Good thread revival seeing as travelling is opening up now. At almost every airport and ferry terminal I get collared, I've had more x-rays than a hospital patient, I had my car impounded at Hull docks, they x-rayed the tyres and customs literally stripped the car. And don't even ask me about immigration at O'hare airport. I even got turned over by a customs bloke in the main hall at Newcastle Airport after I had cleared customs and was on my way to the car park. Big M got arrested by immigration in Singapore and there were calls to the the British Consulate. As I have said previously when I asked her who the suits were that collared her in the airport as we were going into the departure lounge she replied "Special Branch" But all that being said strangely even though I've made my way round the world the last thing anyone was interested in was my Rolex's or the several other watches we used to take with us. Obviously I can't tell you the full story on a public tinternet forum.
  11. It must be a while since you've been clubbing that's nothing like what you'll hear in clubs today. Try a bit of funky house music with your Porn Star Martinis
  12. How much !!! It's around a 30 quid part from plenty of aftermarket sellers, might be a bit fiddly to fit yourself but not £360 fiddly.
  13. A litre of Russian Standard is still VFM (value for money)
  14. Fair comment but as an example Big M's daughter has just bought a new shack about 50 yards from where I used to lived, she can look out her window and see my old house, for £270K, back in the day I paid £65K for mine. In a world of £40/50K family school run motors £10K watches are a drop in the ocean and relatively in the overall scheme of things, if that's your bag, small change. It's a funny old world
  15. Back in the day I bought mine because contrary to today's popular view they were reasonably affordable, tough as old boots and do exactly what they say on the tin for 30 or 40 years and some. But those that know...... know
  16. It's not the first time I've pretended to be a metallurgist either. I couldn't even spell ferritic or martensitic. I got caught out big time out on a rig in the Gulf, our company won a contract in Qatar to go and evaluate some fire damage on a rig out in the Gulf but we were a man short of a full team. My Boss stuck his head in the office door, Bond what are you doing next week so to make up the numbers I was in under strict orders to keep my mouth shut and try and look as if I knew what I was doing. Flew to Qatar proper first class up the front of the plane no expense spared, shipped out to the rig and when we got there the bloke that was running the show was from Middlesbrough, back in the day he used to be a welding engineer in one of the local rig yards and had used our local testing facility fairly regularly. He remembered me instantly. "What the f*ck are you doing here"
  17. I suppose it all depends on the margins. Can you put one of these back together for less than £95K and turn a profit. These old Countach are huge money to restore properly. An old mate of mine did two Espadas and the cost of some of the parts was eye-watering, nothing was remotely cheap.
  18. But they still say Seiko on the dial. You wouldn't go to a VW showroom to buy a Lambourghi or want VAG badges on it would you ??
  19. You can still buy a Sub There is a local shop with a window full of them. You just need to pony up the Dollars Fortunately I bought a couple when they were reasonably priced, I can't believe I turned down a Daytona at £7K
