for all i know the ones on a jag xj40 were swiss! They broke off in my hand and i was stuck with the 1922 committee in maggies old series 3 she got kicked out of. 

I think they were rubbed with Swiss cheese mould, resulting in hallucinations in this instance.

Sun was shining and some modern metal turned up. 

The picture doesn't do the colour justice

Then this AMG A35 pop, fizzed & banged up, sounded awesome. Surely a future hot hatch classic.

And then there was a bit of fibreglass 

Probably more expensive than anything in the carpark.

Looks nice but and I'll stand corrected if I'm wrong it's just to cheap to be right. 

In my mind anyway at that price I have a feeling you'd just be buying someone else's bag of trouble.

i agree, the mot history checks out good as well, which makes it a bit more weird, it should be 2.5k to 3 grand i think? There was a porsche boxster for a grand on the trader in wrexham last year or so it was £1000 too..it was a ratty one though...nevertheless a running boxster for a grand?...I rang about it and told the lad id drive up and pay him the grand and drive it away, it was only in wrexham not far from me really. He kept putting me off, eventually after about 5 calls he got around to asking for a 50 quid deposit...i refused and said id drive up be there in 1 hour with a grand in cash and the phone went down. The same car was on car and classic for 3.5k...theyd nicked the ad and very fishing for deposits. So i sent a message to the trader with the car and classic ad and they removed it.

Yep possibly some sort of scam going on, when you have a look there are plenty still going for a few quid more than that.

When I bought mine I tried a 330 convertible and to honest I didn’t think there was much difference over the 325 I bought.

A8 looking good on its five spoke Comp alloys.

And they are cheap as chips, I’m almost tempted 

:)

we paid 4 grand for our mint 100k mile 2005 example 3ltr petrol, its actually my dads car and they (mum and dad) love it, its been totally relaible too and the mpg is very good mid 20's around town and high 30's on a run, apparently helped by the trick variable autobox. I can highly recommend them. Much better nicer to ride in and look at and feels better finished and built than any of the s class mercs we had (as was the vw phaeton) and thats my dads verdict so must be right ;-)

My gti is proving a fast handy reliable little motor. 68fe9884e967eb4c62b8752815d97983.jpg977cba4dc52717be932ced7fe8871b87.jpg

This has recently parked up or maybe that should be moored. 

I don't know anything about boats but for some reason this one caught my eye and looks the business, the floating equivalent of a fast two seat GT that could wisk you off to the Med or down to the Canaries in comfort without breaking sweat.

Might not be very profitable employment.

Our Marina is mostly used for laying up. I very much doubt if there is the sort of money around here to indulge in such expensive toys. 

You want to bankrupt your self quickly don't buy an old Porsche just buy a boat. 

:laughing2dw:  :laughing2dw:

Friends of ours converted an old steel hull into a des res, properly smart inside but it went on fire twice and they had to bale out, the cat was a bit singed and wet. 

I did suggest a wood burner probably wasn't a good idea on a boat.

Watched to many of these daft eco warrior live the life save the planet telly programs.
