  1. If you want a cheat, buy breaded chicken fillets, defrost them & cut up add to Katsu curry. JD!
  2. My wife thinks it's something she has done as my buzz has fizzled out too.
  3. I did say Fury had broken his opponent before the fight started. TKO 7th round to Fury. Wilder towel thrown in.
  4. Raymond weil freelancer dive 60% off. I had the orange version was a stunning watch for the money but at this price it's bonkers!!
  5. I think Fury got in Wilder's head. No one could believe Fury would have woken up from that knock out. Wilder now knows even we his power he cannot put the lights out. Big psychological disadvantage for Wilder and Fury will make sure he knows this.
  6. Best to purchase through: https://www.pageandcooper.com/watch-brands/nth-watches// NTH AD for UK. I purchased mine from there Nacken vintage white face.
  7. That looks like a solid watch indeed I can't blame you.
  8. I think he might struggle as so many different options to choose from, he may end up dropping a clanger & send Roy the wrong variant which the forum will hate. Who knows he might no even work for the company lol...
  9. They don't seem to blowing Omega out the door as they still list all the latest model at rrp. Maybe these are just selected in stock watches they are shifting.
  10. Would be interesting to see what else they have.
  11. The name puts me off 'Crestical' sounds like an STD around the testicles. Sorry I'm out.
  12. I have to agree looks alot better on the wrist than the ***** marketing pics. It's starting to grow on me. Congratulations on the watch!
  13. Unless he uses my tactic lol Having brought my DJ41 at standard rrp, I would say the Omega's just seem to be better value money overall. I am like alot of others will jump on the Rolex rollercoaster of price inflation. People are bonkers to buy over retail but it's up to them I suppose. I will stick what I know & what I see value in.
  14. Whether they are 'shedding the brand' it still make a very decent purchase don't you think? I did say shop around & subject model...
  15. The key is buy the Omega at the right price! Rolex not likely to be discounted so it is what it is but if you shop around you can get around 30-40% off Omega's subject to model. For me this swing the value debate a little as the Omega will still retain a decent value going forward. Seamasters are a perfect example of that. I once brought a Tag for my brother, he accepted the gift but never really liked it. Which was a result in the end because he gifted it back to me once he got the watch he wanted. So maybe go for the watch you like instead loool.
  16. I did see this one and really liked it, ended up with the fabric strap as really liked the dial with lume markers.
  17. I hit the button on this arriving today hopefully
  18. Just a quick heads up on Ebay's great selling offers that come up every now & then. So if you are a regular user of Ebay you get an offer to sell with a £1 FVF which great but as I recently found out you want to read the T&C's!!!! I got an invoice for £250 the other for a Omega Seatmaster I sold whilst it was listed under the £1 offer. Basically the offer is only valid if it sold within 30 days. Although Ebay automatically defaults to 'good till sold'. I rang CS and the lady was very helpful, she explained I did list it correctly but in the T&C's it did state the 30 day rule. Thankfully she gave a full credit and I just had to pay the £1 fee. So you have been warned! De-list and re-list when the offer comes around again is the advice from Ebay.
  19. My friend used Dunelm, they have a made 2 measure service, half the price of Hillary's.
  20. Very true and it's getting tougher too. Now they are using bluetooth & digitally recorded emission results so they cannot be fudged. Discussions are now around the same technology for the brake rollers so again not have any manual input. Long gone are the days of the postal MOT.....
  21. So for the gearbox, people make the common mistake of believing BMW when they say 'Lifetime oil'. This is utter rubbish, the boxes themselves are pretty decent and in most cases 'GM' tiptronic. But when I had a e46 I use get the oil changed and fitted a new filter around 80k mark along with a quick diff oil change it use keep it running sweet. But at £11 per litre of oil not cheap. Head gaskets again mainly down to lack of maintenance, BMW recommending coolant change roughly every 2-3 years Blue antifreeze. Also the 6 cylinder engines were prone to using a little oil so the odd top up would keep things ticking nicely. I never really had any issues with back axel apart the trail arm bushes but then I use to press in the cheap poly bushes which were 100 times better then the rubber o.e ones.
  22. Yeah I would agree more what my personal preference I suppose. I would agree Bond but theses days if you know the right garages the MOT is not worth the paper it's printed on. This guy looks like a trader so mostly will fit in that bracket. I would just look up buying guides on E46s then arm myself a torch, a screwdriver, some old rags and give the car a good once over. Most common on these are: Lollipop bushes Heater resistors Trail arm bushes Rear springs Usual rocker cover gasket Rear arches Tailgate Of the top of my head.
  23. My favourite colour in E46's. Looks clean, my only negative is the of owners it's had! 5+. Other than that it's everything else going for it
  24. Agreed for all of the above, best advice stick to AD's or the bigger resellers such as Watchfinder, watchmaster, chrononext or even the local watchmakers that are known to you.
  25. Someone who watched that video checked the serial number for spare parts on Omega site and it matched. So papers & warranty card means nothing now too.
