I had a red one and a silver one, it was the 1.3 multijet silver one, I think my wife had already killed the red one at that point and bought her first mini.

I don't have to with the new motor. Auto defrosts

My other smile, 150 miles in 36 hours, and not a penny spent on fuel

Can you charge it at work, so you don't spend any money at home either?

I can charge at work, but it isn't free, actually rather expensive 2.5 time my night tariff for electric, but I can charge at most other places FOC currently

Was at the Mazda dealer earlier.

2x immaculate rx7s and an Aston Martin Vantage.

No clue, they also have/had a 110s/Cosmo somewhere, according to how many left there are 3 in the UK.

As dealers go they are minnows tbf they've got 2 sites. But they've won dealer of the year for Mazda 3 times so usually nice to deal with (even when telling you nope that's not a warranty job as it turns out!).

Would imagine the 3 white rotaries are for promotional use and they are storing the Vantage for a customer. Most of the stuff in the car vending machine is customer stock. When I picked mine up in 2014 got to see it come down to ground level..very James Bond.

£50 notes. Six of them.
Don't see them often, then they all come along at once.
Although impossible to spend, unless that's a Costa coffee? So it'll be off to the bank with them.
Seems a lot, but each one covers a 2-hour lesson.

This ridiculousness...

PS - just be aware I have spotted the use of a strong expletive in said article. Although the title pretty much sums it up!

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

My Punto is finally alive again after two week, with a new (used) ECU - but is still posing issues.
Considering if I should drive it to my place and remove the plates so I have plenty time to do trouble shooting, and then buy that Seicento that's for sale nearby, as a temporary runabout 🤔

Perhaps one of these 12v note checkers may come in handy?! Lol.

As long as theyíre real (and Iím sure they are) a trip to the bank or post office should take care of them?
