Total of 5 dents now

I heard the "plop" and I thought "That's not a good sound.." - must had been a freaking massive nut traveling at an insane velocity

CityRail is actually my main mode of transport and given how many people complain about them they're still more reliable than a Fiat

Thing is, when ` christine` finally went to the crusher, which car maker got the metal back to re use?

Its a great book Kev, better than the film IMHO.

Re: New noise

That's exactly what I'll do to my GP when my tolerance level has been breached!

And I won't read a book unless it has pretty pictures in 'em

Ok, this has turned to something like a tickling/water gushing sound (like the sound after new coolant has been added, but not as loud). Any ideas, or what should I be checking for besides fluid levels?

Fuel slopping about in the tank?

I do think you are starting to hear/feel things that aren't there or are just normal car noises but have become paranoid that something is about to go wrong!

You know, you're most likely right. If I had a $1 every time someone said "You're paranoid" I would be living in a chteau somewhere in France now

Just because your paranoid doesnt mean that they are not trying to give you $1
