    Impact of owning a Land Rover on EU referendum?

    Oh yes, Belgium and it's "auto keuring" I have been a victim of that system, seriously, they failed my Discovery for not having mud flaps for gods sakes Vote out now while you still can, you'll never get another chance!!! Getting back in is easy, they force Norway to have a referendum every 10yrs or so, we could have a second referendum to get back in any time.
  2. 100% identical to RRC.

    Help N4S With Mid-Build Blues

    C'mon Phil, I remember getting bogged down with the list that never seemed to end, get the exhaust on, plumb the vacuum and fuel and turn the key, once you hear it running the enthusiasm comes back thick and fast

    The "Pass the Bucket" 4x4 For Sale on Ebay Thread

    Function over form, I like things to be aesthetically pleasing of course, but then again my preference is ability, I drool over locking diffs, HD half shafts, portal axles etc, but I do more than bump the curb on the school run.

    The "Pass the Bucket" 4x4 For Sale on Ebay Thread

    This! Low spec and a healthy enthusiast (or would be) based audience for a vehicle that would cost less than half to produce elsewhere, use an "agent" to import low volumes and watch them get snapped up for big money, think of the first 200Tdi defender comfort and spec to get an idea of what is to come. Unbelievable that lockers etc were over looked, but then it's all about looks nothing to do with going off road.

    STOLEN- Black 90 TD5 Coalville, Leicester

    Good show, hopefully no repercussions in your direction to follow, but more of the ####### thieving ##### need to learn these lessons.

    Reading the small print...!!!!

    Och macs Oswestry say no more! Two or 5 bad experiences with mail order parts, but when you hit the parts counter and put your car in the workshops they're great. On par with paddock spares for wrong parts and incorrect description.
  10. Depends, if you are seeking to enforce a writ or some such against him personally for losses?He does need to be held accountable, enforcement against his businesses seems fruitless as no one owns anything to take away from them.

    300TDI GS EGR/Airflow meter removal.

    EGR is no problem, fit blanking plates and forget, the air flow meter being fitted would mean you have an EDC engine, you could remove it but not worth it unless it's not working. If you do decide to remove it then you need to swap the injection pump too. The EDC system is very simple and doesn't often give problems, no need to fear it because it's electronic lol

  13. Saw this on FB and to say it confused me is mild. https://m.facebook.com/groups/703875639700099?view=permalink&id=1051580051596321 Seller says cat D but clearly has twisted chassis, this surely takes it to cat B? Will try an post pix for those who don't do FB
