Took the VW T2 for a run out. The non starting and immobiliser flashes and beeps turned out to be some waxoyl melting and getting to be where it shouldn't on the starter motor itself. That's another lesson learnt, just because the immobiliser seems to be having a nervous breakdown it doesn't mean th...

Re: Greetings

I can see why you don't take it out in the rain, it looks like it's just come out of the showroom.

This takes me back a few years - I remember my best mate buying a new brown 1.3 'Coupe', subsequently replaced by an Acclaim.

So you succeed?

No wonder you're always touring abroad, scattering mobiles like confetti.

Re: Best ever real world car?
