  1. I'm more concerned with rising insurance prices, my premium has gone up £300 in a year for no reason. I fvcking hate blood sucking insurance companies :angry:
  2. ' I am not an economically viable human being' How sad
  3. Wow, a 400bhp cosworth engine in a road legal go kart, those things will go like hell
  4. Thats very reasonable, is your technician a Bentley specialist?
  5. They are notoriously difficult cars to work on, very limited access to the engine. Typically you're looking at an engine out job by a specialist just to replace cooling and oil feed pipes to the turbos, but we got round it by making some special tools which enabled to us to remove them and fit new ones. A few months after we fitted the pipes it had to go to the specialist and have the engine removed anyway to have the exhaust studs and nuts replaced, amongst other things so it was a waste of time You cannot run a super car on a shoe string.

These guys used to look after my uncles Esprit, they weren't cheap but they were very good and had some of the most experienced Lotus technicians in the country working for them. Last time I visited their premises about 18 months back their shop was almost full of cars. http://www.thisisderbyshire.co.uk/End-road-luxury-car-dealer-nearly-40-years/story-14180348-detail/story.html
  9. I'm a self employed vehicle detailer and I dare say that most of those in 'proper' jobs would not be up to it.
  10. A lie in is one of the biggest perks of being self employed IMO. I start around 9.30am and finish around 5pm, although sometimes till 7pm
  11. I don't know why people bother getting married these days, it's a con
  12. I've almost fallen victim to this. It's rampant in Russia. Lots of pretty girls looking for a green card or to scam you out of your money. They are ruthless.
