Bays available in almost all of the main carparks and lots more on the streets. You can either book in advance or take a chance by rocking up. I still need to fin...

Re: Where do you come from, ex-petrolhead?

Great thread. Renault 12 saloon (Grey). First car that cost next to nothing but lasted about 6 weeks when it fell terminally apart (lesson learned). Ford Fiesta MK2, 1.4 (Bright Green). Not bad for a young single thing with not much cash to spare. Renault 21 Savanah, 2L (Light Blue). Marriage, first...

Re: DAB radio - hard reset

Re: New boy

Hi all. Another newbie here. I have been lurking for a while and the threads on this forum really have helped me to decide to take the plunge. I had the option of buying either in France or the UK and have finally set my sights on a UK GX4h in Atlantic Grey. Ordered yesterday, the dealer already has...
