Green Omygod barge

Ok so the corsa`s replacement has landed. The need for an estate car to ferry forthcoming grandchild and all paraphernalia that come with such an event ( yes granddad, sounds wrong doesn't it)
So what better way to do it, then in an Omega lol, an Audi a6 would of been nice, so too a Volvo 940 but neither could be found in such a fetching colour as our Omygod. The joys of such fittings as, cruise control and aircon were at the forefront, though the lack of cup holders is a major bummer. Test drive was on one of the hottest days of the year so far, I neglected to notice the whistling turbo but bar that all is good, it even had a replacement fuel pump last year at a cost of 1285 O the joys of the old 2.2dti clunker
Dogpig and the new addition to the fleet of animals, "aardvark" a puppy jack russell, aka Lucy seem to enjoy the boot area so much they like to eat it, that`ll so stop asap
Pictures of said steed will be along soon.............

Then went shopping and bought some alloys and had new tyres fitted







But before fitting, off to the paint shop to change their colour

Re: Green Omygod barge

Why do Vx make it near on impossible to work on the newer cars? every bolt I need to get to, to remove the turbo is a git to get too. Going to have to wait until the car port is finished before I start to remove the unit, as need it mobile till then.
Want to do change said turbo unit and run on the new alloys for a bit to make sure they are all true before I lay out the 75 per corner to repaint them.

Re: Green Omygod barge

That's how much the only local place charges, they did the Carlton alloys and my last Volvo 940 ones. Not the cheapest but great results. Good results can be achieved with rattle cans but they take too long to do and I dot have the patience anymore
