I'm going to go as far as I can on one tank, the Punto did it last year and that made Perth, so I'm hoping the Astra is much better cruising the long distances on the motorway.

If it makes Avimore I'll be impressed.

If a V8 Jag can make it from Geneva to Blackpool on one tank the Astra WILL make it...

Local Vauxhall Specialist motor factors, AutoVaux.. pretty much any vauxhall part is cheap, front pads are 20 for a full set

They do a "Service Kit" of General Motors parts for all Vauxhalls, they should be around 60 but i didnt need the Panel Filter as ive got a K&N on the astra.

Plus it might have been sympathy as I had just spent 75 on a Mass Air Flow Sensor from them

Re: What's made you smile today?

Housemates again

This morning i was woken up by one of my housemates SLAMMING doors and swearing at me, at 7:30am i had no idea what this was about and it was too early for me to even try to understand.

It turns out that when i got back last night (rather late) i parked within 1cm from his cars front bumper. On a hill. my car was further down this hill meaning that if he was to roll forwards he would hit my car.

(He's not the best driver in the world and has issues with hill starts)

Away, i found this all funny because he was slamming the doors, swearing, calling me childish, pathetic, making a HUGE fuss over (in my mind) what was nothing. the irony of what he was saying.

So i thought what is the best way to start the day?
So i've done it again. (By the way, my alarm clock isn't working so this should help me wake up on time)
