    Sapphire autos and Wayne Gates

    I've been to Terry @ Wayne Gates and had work done very well and in budget - which was absolutely reasonable. As a woman I usually have to deal with garages/dealers who think im a ****wit or look around for my husband to deal with - with Terry and his team there was none of that and my service...

    Final proof.

    :doh: I think that you just have to be grateful they congregate in one place to have their 'discussions'..... and I speak as one of them..that's female rather than a 'mumsnet' person... cant get any sprogs in my car for a start...

    London to Newcastle

    Ive done the journey from Watford to Morpeth a few times, Ive found M1 -> M18 -> A1(M) best, not particularly scenic, but straightforward and 'fastest'.

    BMW e31

    Could someone tell me about the 8 series...it might be that being a child of the 70s and 80s these cars really appeal, there are some 'good' examples under £10k..I'm thinking of itching the scratch for less than that though, but as you guys are the fount of all knowledge, please bring me back...

    R171 Brake Pad

    I wonder if you could help and recommend a good internet site where I can pick up some front and rear pads for my 2004 R171, I'm looking for a quality service rather than cheap (ie ebay) :D. Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Tell me about....Buying a 'Classic' - R107

    Thanks for that helpful answer Calvin, What is it about the rust thing, I know about the late 90s-early2000s where Merc couldn't be ****d, but what was the reason behind these cars being so rust-prone?

    Tell me about....Buying a 'Classic' - R107

    Can anyone give me some advice about buying a R107. I'd love one, but don't really know anything about them other than having a relative who had one in his garage that was a rust-eaten pile, albeit a gorgeous one. What price am I looking for paying a 'good' one, I dont want a project or really...

    Which insurance company doesn't ask for copies of driving licence

    Remember also that everyone has to update their photo on their licence card every 10 years, i would imagine this catches quite a few people out - ie they forget, so insurance companies would probably take great delight in refusing to pay out for this and other reasons!

    How will tomorrow's strike affect the road network?

    At the very minimum I would say lots of schools shut, so parents, teachers and kids at home = Very quiet roads. Shame speed cameras dont go on strike though :D (tho obviously i dont speed, ever, at all)

    R171 trim/plastic rattles when roof is up

    I think it is....it's the nature of the beast being a retractable roof, though I don't really notice mine anymore. I've driven an M3 convertible and that was 10x worse with creaks and squeaks :eek:
