XJ :-(

(mines an xjr, but xj is same bumper and a lot more common)


it's crazy, the squirters are £50 each used !

but... it's £150 for a whole bumper... which has 4 of them :-o


they're flush with the bumper and then pop up and squirt the headlights every 6th time you press the windscreen squirter

don't really care about them working, but there's a hole where one should be right now :-(

Test drove a Porsche Cayman S last weekend, got another one lined up for this weekend. Feeling good about this one, it's better value than the last one due to lower mileage and many more optional extras.

2010
15,600 miles
987 Gen 2 model
3.4 litre flat 6
7 speed PDK gearbox

Key Optional Extras :-
Flappy paddle steering wheel
LSD
Porsche Active Suspension Management
Sports Chrono Plus
Sports Exhaust
BOSE Sound System

Porsche approved from Porsche Silverstone, 2 year Porsche warranty and European breakdown cover.

Pretty excited right now. Will post up pics if I go through and buy it. Here is a video they did for me in the meantime - https://video.citnow.com/vtGC-YhXF1n

looks really nice and I bet it's fun to drive too


you should go on one of those track days where it's just you and an instructor/guy in the car with you... can't remember what they're called

I quite fancy doing one myself, it's a bit crap having a fast car and never being able to give it a push on the roads because it picks up speed too quickly :-s

well 36 of my points are 6 counts of not replying to the NIP notice after a speed camera (6 points each time) - but I was just out of hospital with a brain injury so couldn't reply, I wasn't driving, it was the guys working for me.... so they let me keep my license

pulled over in a work van by VOSA a few weeks back (when they pull over loads of vans/trucks to check them over) - cop there said I 39... no idea where they extra 3 came from

Its 150bhp standard but has a mild map it pulls like a train and wheelspins 1st to 2nd gear which is mental for a diesel! I tread it like utter sh*t, was looking for a new car as i had it almost 5 years but im going to get the belt done and drive it into the floor
