    haha. I only dirt dig for my own entertainment purposes.

    I hate going on ebay to look for something with the intention of buying some quality and spending a bit of money.
    But I always end up buying some thing cheap and thinking WTF?!?!

    I wanted some decent eyelets and good a tool but ended up buying something for a £1 with free eyelets.
    It did two eyelets, wrong and now the tool is broken. lol

    That's very true.
    I thought I'd give it a go for £1 cause I only need to do 4 of them. lol

    4th year with Admiral and not had any issues with them really.
    Every now and then they are beaten on quotes but mainly they are fine.

    See ive heard admiral will only tolerate so many mods. They told my mate they blacklisted his car and to do one. They have been my insurer for the past 2 years though.

    I tried all them companies too Karl, but I came across a company called A plan who came out cheapest! Was in 2 minds but when I asked who I will be insured with it turned out it was the same company greenlight would have insured me with anyway.

    I went with Prestige in the end for my renewal -

    AUDI-SPORT.NET CAR INSURANCE SCHEME WITH PRESTIGE KEEP MOVING INSURANCE

    Turned out to be cheaper than my renewal with Greenlight and after a full day on the phone to every reputable broker/insurer, no one else could get close once all the optional extra's and PNCB was added.

    Not had any issues with Greenlight or Prestige

    Morning People.

    How was everyone's Monday?

    Our put decided it did not want to change gear any more on the way to Bristol while the wife (Shut up crazy, I'm getting use to the concept.) was driving it. She got the car to her Dad's and set off looking for another car.
    She found a Yellow 2003 Seat Leon, 12 months MOT and 5 months Tax. It looks like a nice motor, needs a couple of bits doing to it but only little interior bits like the glove box and cup holder.

    Her Pug then got transported to my Dad's place while we decide what we do with it.

    On the bright side, she now has a VAG motor, which should make my life a bit easier as I never liked the pug and found it a ***** to any information about it.


    Anyone want to buy a 206 GTI?

    Morning Scott,

    Yes, we are defo looking forwards to it. Im not fitting it myself, turns out a friend of mine from childhood days (many years ago) is a well established kitchen fitter and has agreed to do it for us when it gets to us, so hopefully by March, we should be all kitchen/diner'ed up.

    Good man. I like them.

    Its going well, just trying to sort out the loft, garage and 3rd room.
    But its all waiting on me to board the loft up, then I can empty the 3rd room, the garage and start sorting out the 3rd room and make it in to an office.
    I'm a little bit annoyed, the door in to the 3rd room is to small for a pod chair.
    I need to rethink the chair situation in there.
    Once the garage is empty I can board and insulate the roof, sort out the gap at the bottom of the door and reroute the rain water channel. Then I can paint it, build the racking, work tops and cupboards.
    That will be a summer job I think a long with the drive way widening.


    As requested Crazy.

    derv or the proper type of fuel?

    I do like those Leon's, you get a lot of car for your money. I spoke to somebody at work the other day who has one of the last editions, and he de-tuned it...as it was too fast, pfft! It felt like a sin to me, to de-tune a car.

    Yeah, it must be a relief she went german and not french

    Gutted it's a non-turbo, but we can't have it all. You'd have too much speed in your fleet if you had both the Leon and Audrey.

    I'm not bothered about the Turbo.
    Less to go wrong.

    If we really feel like turbo it, I guess we can slap on a TFSI.

    Thanks Nilz but I'll happly swap it all for a nice kitchen install.

    Crazy, I want before and after pics of your kitchen as well mate.

    Of course Scott. Before pics look horrendous as it is, as we moved the lounge door last year and have never bothered patching up the old one on the kitchen side. Plasterboard FTW!

    What's the interior like? Leather?

    Only a couple of pics of the interior but no, not leather.
    Sport seats I think.







    Before and after pics are good for your own records and it saves trying to describe it to people via text.

    Lazy but if you're going to do it any way, I don't blame you for leaving it.

    I'd do the same but my folks would not let me, they'd be bugging me about it till its done.
    I got to paint 2 door frames and some little bits gloss white after trying to get the jukebox in and they won't let me forget it. lol

    Ahhhhhhhhhh, been working on a problem at work and finally got it sorted after 2 days!!! Wahoo. Always a relief 20 minutes before home time as I can sleep easy now.

    Scott, go discuss with the 8L people that a 1.8 non turbo Leon is better than a heavy lardy s3

    Evening all!

    How is everyone? Congrats on the new jobs, new houses, new kitchens, new cambelts and any else I've missed!

    Loving the new job so far - they're leaving me to sort myself out which is great & just checking everything is going OK once in a while. New boss is skiing at the moment & judging by the gushing email he sent me earlier, I think he was enjoying the après ski already... Haha!

    Managing a reasonable 27mpg on the daily commute which isn't too shabby. Better than the 18mpg I was getting on the shorter journey! Only spent an extra £75 on fuel last month compared to previously - but saved £50 on lunches and earned significantly more money in the month so it's all good!

    Oh & I've never let a car run out of petrol and only once given a car back to someone with only fumes remaining, but it was a courtesy car so that was to be expected as that how it was when I picked it up!


    I'm still yet to get any kind of flashing lights / Blackpool illuminations going round a roundabout / country lanes so I'm obviously not pushing hard enough... However, worried that I'm going to start chucking Mum's polo round roundabouts at 50mph without thinking about it... Hehe! Loving every minute in the car though - comfy for traffic, poke for "negotiating" traffic and driving like a hooligan at weekends. Much smiles.
