To be fair, some them are just polish it, stick some new lights on it and fix a niggly problem before flogging it on.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

I had completely forgotten they did a 500

Then I remembered that gash stripe and remembered why it was so forgettable.

How's that trashed? That's JDM "scene" IMO. Will fit in that crowd fine.

As I recall the guy who sold the car to the program in the first place was the one who bought it at the end of the episode, he was rather enthusiastic about the new look.

Personally I don't like it but then that's a personal thing, there are plenty of people who will buy a car like that and love it

Passing 120000km in the Punto with today's 600km trip, but then the engine light decided to come on 10kms before passing the 120000km.. Will do a readout tomorrow, see what's going on.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Frantic phone call from the Mrs while I was out running, "Steve, the bottom of my car has fallen off" "What?!? How?!" "I was just driving along, hit a kerb and it's fallen off" edited bit where she describes where she is "OK stay put and I'll have a look, I'm going now...I've got a mile to run back to my car" Anyway sprinted home got into my car got there within half hour which considering I'd run a mile and driven 4 wasn't bad...She'd clipped a sill cover on a high kerb and being French it's not screwed in just push fasteners all the way along and the rear was dragging on the road. So I get to arrive and look manly fixing it in 30 seconds.

On a side note I hope the bloke from the lease company is blind when the come to pick it up...

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Ordered two new coil packs for the Punto.. One of them is failing, so might as well change both of them now. 120£ out of pocket, but then again - if they last another 10 years like the first pair..
