The Merc has beaten me I give in

on Wed May 17, 2017 9:12 pm
Chopped it in today, lost a bloody fortune on two Mercs in the last 30 months

After changing the front brakes two weeks ago a rattle was diagnosed as an auxiliary belt tensioner and a pulley - £200 later Nope - Timing Chain !!

Never again.

On the upside

Car tax on the new bus is £520 a year !!!

Big kiss for the first to get it, you all know me, it can't be that hard can it?

hahaha Paul, You know, after all my harping, I didn't like them all that much, plus anything half decent was outside my desperation budget.


clue 2. A Small increase in bhp to 207

Peugeot 407 2.7 HDI.

Logic - I vaguely remember you posting a link to one before, and I know they have the top rate tax.

Crickle as usual has it.

Sportwagon, my first ever estate. not what i set out looking for but needs must when i need reliability for work.

Apart from noisy tyres (compared to the merc) I cannot fault it.

Do i have to write one of them review things now?

Saw one today. Saab Aero estate. Except the steering wheel was on the wrong side. Silver one. Probably the same colour as John's.

I went to by some petrol this morning in the early hours before I was thinking.. or not thinking. I crossed over the bonnet to almost I stopped half way, get in the wrong side of the car. It's happened before, some kind of crisis I was having, I was on a 2 lane highway on the wrong side.

It's all a bit strange that's all.
