Re: What happened here ?

I found it remarkable that he thought the 2+2 in that condition was worth £34,000, and that after restoration to concourse it would be worth £160,000!

Re: stolen

I did wonder if it was some sort of advertising scam. Or worse.

Re: Over excited soon to be owner

Having read on here the various causes of this I am going to run the fuel right down (guy who sold it mistakenly filled it with ordinary unleaded) Although they like high octane if possible, using normal stuff shouldn't cause the issue you mention. I've done a number of European tours (accompanied ...

Re: Selling my car - advice

Must say that I find hagerty's a bit understated always, compared to actual prices being achieved. For example, they show a series 2 2+2 in fair condition to be worth £17,200. I'll have a few of those!

Re: 50 Year Celebration of the Series 2 !

Before I retired, I travelled the M25 both clockwise and anticlockwise, every working day for 15 years. Used to go across the Dartford crossing before the bridge was built, so just one tunnel with 2 lanes in each direction for all traffic. My longest time from Chatham in Kent to home in Chelmsford, ...

Re: Which tracker device?

Update, looking at this specific device, as the annual monitoring cost can be bought as for "lifetime of ownership" for £399, rather than most are about £160++ p.a ongoing.

Which tracker device?

I'm thinking of having a tracker device fitted. Question is, which one? Even when you choose a firm, there are many options - VHF, GPS, GSM, or all 3? I was thinking of this group: https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwja16TUg8PYAhULLsAKHd91ApsQF...

Re: First new member 2018?

Man flu is of course extremely serious. Here's the definition: Man-Flu 1. Man-Flu is more painful than childbirth. This is an irrefutable scientific fact*. *(Survey of over 100,000 men) 2. Man-Flu is not 'just a cold'. It is a condition so severe that the germs from a single Man-Flu sneeze could wip...

Re: Over excited soon to be owner

Well done! Hope all goes well on the day. I've got a webasto roof on my 2+2 and I love it. The open air feel without the battering. My wife (she of the "watch the hair!!") also appreciates it when the wind deflector is up.

Re: 50 Year Celebration of the Series 2 !

Interesting that towards the end of the article, it reads "A welcome detail is a combined ignition/starter switch in place of the former separate controls", when the current rage in new cars is the inclusion of a separate starter button!
