Re: Green Omygod barge

Nearly had to call for ambulance at my local post office, as I felt a Sharpe pain from behind when told how much a years tax is. Tried to explain to the woman behind the counter that the car is having a new turbo fitted this week and I should get discount for paying the full amount in cash, I then asked her if she would telephone the alloy wheel refinishers and ask them to knock some cash off, as she wouldn't knock any money off on the tax..............she didn't have a sense of humour

Re: Green Omygod barge

The barge is back but with another issue to sort turbo replaced at great expense but there is another issue now. A vacuum leak somewhere will have to investigate but thoughts are egr gasket, as this doesn't sit flat when seated before tightening down.
Before that can happen it needs its wheels sorting and some tasty leather seats that come with heated rears collecting and fitting

Re: Green Omygod barge

what better way to spend the hottest day of the year so far, then in the comfort of an air conditioned motor Before setting off, one was up at the crack to wash and polish the car before breakfast and the heat of the day

Much money changed hands for a set of as new rear shocks and springs ( correct for an estate) a full leather interior, with the all important heated rear seats, egr valve and some elite rear wheel arch pockets.



And it still returned 42 mpg there and 43 mpg on the way back, so big honking barge with good mpg is all good
