    I know mate, but for the money I couldn't turn it down basically. £132,000 for a three bed house? Bargain.

    I plan to make a drive...

    Whoa!

    I just need to pick an area. I'm not fussed about jacking in my job and moving away from Herts. My gf is a primary school teacher so she can get a job anywhere too.

    No garage, No house.
    Simple.
    or at least a place to put a garage.

    I all ways go to my dads house, he's just as mad about cars as me.
    he has all the tools, space and compressor tools I will ever need :)

    You lucky sod.

    My dad sees a car as a mode of transport that gets you from A-B. He's had Vauxhalls all his life and is once again considering buying another Corsa, it will be his 6th :lazy: at least get the fecking VXR :banhead:

    If I have a son I hope he's into cars too as I should have a good knowledge by then and a good set of tools ;)

    I'm sure we've been here before, but when i see what you lot are paying/can pay for a properties it makes me a little sick. £132k for a 3 bed house???
    I paid over £190k for a two bed flat. And that was only because it had a short (65 year) lease, otherwise it would've been close to £230k.

    No garage so I am renting one around the back for £40 per month!

    :faint:

    It makes me sick too mate. I'm 20 miles North of London at the moment and a 2 bed flat can go for £200K+ easy.

    If I look at property 30-50 miles further North and the prices drop like a stone.

    Wow. I know 20 miles isn't exactly far but i'm surprised the prices are still so high out there. Is that for a new build??

    They'll use anything to bump up the price, won't they!

    When I bought my place 4 years ago they inflated the prices because we are about 2 miles from the olympics which would be taking place FIVE years time!

    6 out of 8 people in this office is playing Angry Birds. lol

    Ads, your desk problem seems just as bad as mine. Mine is by the main route to any thing, stores, kitchen, toilet, exit. every one has to walk past my desk and most of them stare at my screen. Its really hard to try and hid it at times.
    (insert image of my desk here)

    Correct.

    Only issue is the B5 is 5x112 ET 35 as standard so Scott will need PCD adapters :(
