    They text me at 80% and then it went with in an hour or so.
    I was putting a new ROM on my phone and I think that used most of it.

    I've asked the same and they said no.
    On my contract they give me credit to use on phone calls and text. Its something like £190 a month, I've used almost £10 of that, I asked if I can spend the excess on internet boosters (I got two weeks till I get my 3 gb back) and they said no.

    I'm also due an upgrade and they wont give me the HTC One for free, so I'm looking at going Sim only and getting the Nexus 5.

    Im thinking about moving away from EE as i only went with them as they had 4G first and they offered me a free S4.

    Now nearly all networks have it as soon as i can move away i will as i dont need unlimited txts and calls but they wont budge on that stance

    £1,400?!? Ouch.

    So chaps, it's Friday finally! What's everyone up to this weekend?

    First full working week of the year is almost over, and my first full week at my new job - looking forward to a lie in tomorrow morning, it has to be said!!! (I think the biggest challenge is going to be stopping myself from going to bed at 8.30pm tonight!)

    The DVD in my Satnav has carked it - it wasn't particularly great from word go to be honest as it's got loads of scratches on it. Finally decided I ought to get a replacement. One I've got is 8P0 919 884 M - found this one on eBay - will it work?! It's 8P0 919 884 R but comes with 2 DVDs?! Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp!

    nice one scott! that was a quick process for you, took us around 8 weeks!
    soon you will be all scatter cushions and paint schemes!
    :nyah:
    and for those who care, i have got shot of the avant!
    i just was not doing the miles no more to justify having a derv, plus as layla is nearly 4, the need for push chairs and other toddler related luggage meant i did not really need the space anymore!
    well except room for the dog, but i will cross that bridge when i come to it! lol
    i have got myself a rather horny A5 coupe 2.0 tfsi!
    all the whistles and bells, LED drl's were a priority, cream leather etc etc! and i love it
    will get a few pics up soon

    Yeh Ill drop you a text and pop down in the new new motor(no not a typo).

    The fr derv has gone back, it had some major dpf problems, cut out on me whilst driving and cut out 4 times on the RAC bloke, the trader wasnt happy giving me back my doh.

    So now I have a 2007 2litre petrol FR, 2 grand cheaper and less miles aswell as cheaper to insure? Feels alot pokier top end compared to the derv that felt under powerd for 170ps and 250+ftlb, may of been due to a badly blocked dpf.

    Chez the A5 sounds very nice, dont be getting parmo juice on the interior.

    Coatsey why have you bought a vr6? Will you be doing a btc? And selling your ass to fund?

    i think the real question is here is why don't you have mk2 golf with a vr6 lump in it.

    i can list some factors why i have it:

    1. its a 1990 mk2 golf (always wanted one)
    2.its got a vr6 lump in it. :racer:

    i don't think i need to go on any more.

    but really it sounds keen and is like cack off a stick, oh and its a mk2 golf.

    there talk of a turbo in the future but for now its getting loads of head work done to it for maximum screamage!

    I don't think so I'll take a look on my phone.

    Yeah man was a added bonus when I went to look at this mk2 it was the most solid one I had looked at, and it had a full vr conversion on it all wide tracked, full vibratecnic mounts, all singing and dancing.

    The garage wanted 2.5k for it I told him it wasn't worth it and would give him 1.8k for it he said yeah was a happy day.
