    Never one for these weight loss and stop drinking nonsense resolutions but this year I resolved to

    complete my W114 tuning and remaining bits
    flog at least two cars
    clear out all the surplus parts from my W114 rebuild and other cars and
    clear the garage of junk.

    Already started on 3 this morning.

    I think I have about 30 sq ft worth of stuff I can clear out. That space would be very useful indeed!

    That's a tough one - for me, once I've started looking, the outcome is inevitable.

    lol and on that note, my E63 was in for some warranty work and was loaned a GLE350d now I'm on the hunt for a GLE/ML63 :doh:

    Trying to hold off though but it's most likely going to happen this year at some point I feel.:devil:

    To finally replace my trusty old W203... the strategy of waiting for it to start going wrong has failed. 10 year on and still rust free and reliable. But it's a 2006 car and I guess 10 years is enough? I am sure there are many members here with older and equally reliable cars though... so no I have no real reason to change it, other than for change's sake. This is my New Year's Resolution, but I do agree that it does not sound very resolute...

    Mmmm...I wonder how long that will last

    Shall we have a sweepstake guys? I'll go for January 28th.

    I need to do the same! Except I keep buying & not doing much selling! Nearly bought an Alfa GT 3.2 V6 Busso last month for 3k but luckily it fell through on 11th hour.

    I resolve to fix something, anything, without breaking something else, that costs more than the original thing I was attempting to fix.
