  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.
  6. My uncles Lotus has needed a £20k overhaul/refresh in the past two years to have it put right because it spent most of it's time in storage for several years which caused parts to deteriorate. And it's only done 30,000 miles from new. It can be more cost effective to keep them running sometimes.
  7. Just been reading that thread and it's what prompted me to post mine. Our economy is collapsing and the financial experts are forecasting that we are heading back into recession
  8. Sign of the times, people can no longer afford the extravagance of running super cars. 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.
  13. Transactions are now at a 40 yr low. Will post link if I can find it again
  14. What wage would a person need to be on to live in Sydney and enjoy all these activities on a regular basis?
  15. We're these events in Sydney? I keep seeing Sydney pop up on the tv and the same things are shown every time, the habour, bridge, opera house, bondi, a few fancy restaraunts and bars and lots of characterless archictecture. Is there much else there to see and do?
  16. Wow, I live there, that's a big number, didn't think the market was that bad-- I mean good
  17. Are they telling you the truth? There are a lot of people out there that appear to be doing OK who are actually living off credit. They will not tell you this of course
  18. Might not be such a good idea sleeping next to cattle if someone is out cow tipping
  19. Yes I think so, the guy who the reporter was interviewing was sleeping rough behind a dumpster, he looked like he'd been there a for a while. He mentioned something about using a brolly to keep the wind off him.
  20. Sorry no link, just repeating what I heard on my local regional news last night (Calendar). Reporter said this massive increase in the number of homeless people hitting the streets in Sheffield was due to 'economic pressures' and and 'rising utilities tipping people over the edge'. This figure is shocking and could well double in the next couple of years . It's getting nasty out there folks
