    What’s this little box

    I got my first year paid for when I bought the car .... it was absolute shite. Kept getting calls and texts from Vodafone when the car hadn't moved and when I forgot to take the fob, not a f#cking thing! I was expecting a challenge in getting insurance without a tracker but no issues at...

    considering a Grantorismo,

    Not so sure about that - my GT is significantly better on fuel than other 'comparable' cars I have owned and driven.

    Project Rekall – Shamal/Ghibli restomod

    Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra

    I have it done to all my cars - in part because I am lazy when it comes to cleaning the daily drivers. A quick bucket clean followed by a rinse with a hose and a dry has it coming up very nicely in next to no time. And with a bit more effort, the results are stunning.

    Halfords advanced socket sets all 1/2 price

    +1 My imperial sockets are a mixed bag mainly inherited from my Grandad (who was a race mechanic) or stolen from my Dad (mechanical engineer) so all decent branded stuff. My metric sockets are all Teng or Halfords. Teng was the best I could afford at the time but now everything new is...

    Stradale purchased

    I presume you mean you didn't use the car rather than didn't need the tyres? Mine go on when average temperatures drop below 10c and go back on when average tyres go above 10c.

    The other birds thread

    A mate of mine used to use the landlady at our local as his litmus test ... he always said he wouldn't touch her with mine and as soon as the beer goggles changed that, he went home before he got himself into trouble :)
