    It's Tuesdays here in Bootle for radials, if you have cross-ply tyres Thursday is OK. Best check with your local Kwikfit depot for the best day in your area.

    Hi Guys.

    I agree on the Japanese badge.
    I know its to big engine wise as against what you are wanting.
    But I purchased a Toyota CAMRY 2.2ltr in 1995 I still have it 122000 miles on it.
    First silencer lasted 12.5 years. Very little other jobs needed.
    No need to change it.
    Pity you did not want a 2.2L or a 3.5L
    Lots CAMRYs on EBay CHEAP.

    But enjoy what ever you buy.

    Running cost may not be your main requirement Cools, but if it's important I suggest you buy a Japanese car a couple of years old and keep it for many years. Mileage is not too important, my Toyota had done 236000 miles and running well when I parted with it after 13 years. The key is to service it properly in line with the service book. South Korean cars are pretty good too, I know someone who has a high mileage Kia that's going well.

    I did notice that the new same as always, DA, addressed 'koolpc' as 'cools' a few times....

    ......surely not?

    No way?

    Can't be.

    If I stay here long enough, I may learn from the master and make such valued posts as yours.

    At which point I may as well top myself.

    Didnt know that all new cars from 2017 have to pay road tax. £140 minimum now!

    It might go down in subsequent years, Kools :). The IR realised they were losing out on huge revenues by offering these reduced tax rates..

    Tbh, what's a further £100 over a year? Now't.

    Sooooooo - HOW'S THE CAR!!! :D

    Changed it for a 2015 model. Same car. 26k on clock. Hopefully picking her up end of this week.
  20. Why are you you changing it Kool,it seemed like you were getting a good deal or were there hidden clauses.
