Re: Bargen BMW Z3 brought

This will get sorted in January and then up for sale. It's worth a grand I reckon.

Re: The Heirloom Laguna Deux - Trouble lurking

I never spend more than 25-30% of the car's value on fixing it. I leave that to others.

There has been a ongoing gearbox fault that no garage or gearbox specialist could diagnose.
That would have been a one way trip across the bridge for me. Soz.

Re: A complete loss of the plot

Cease car manufacture for 10 years. That'll sort it out.

Nobody will be throwing cars away then. Everything will have a value, the price of spares will drop and anyone who loses their job making cars and bits will be in a garage fixing stuff.

Re: Bargen BMW Z3 brought

The Z3 is the modern Alpine. They're not very good at anything but it doesn't rust like an MX5.

In 2020 it'll be 20 years old and I can stick it on my FJ policy and drive it for a bit under the cover of darkness.

Re: Squire's voitures

Head gasket blown between 1 and 2.

Not a major drama. I'd get another head overhauled and ready so that it's a day's work to get it up and running again.
