Doesn't matter what it is....my TF was keyed on a road last week (it is well detailed though :D); having dealt with many individuals that behave in such a manner, they are invariably incapable of giving a coherent account or reasoning as to why they behaved as they did....my view: it is their own envy of other people's property mixed with their own self-hatred and inability to reconcile inner issues...who knows.These types of individuals are emotionally immature, incapable of self-examination and reflection and cannot manage their emotions or (violent) behaviour. Damaging a car, bus shelter, window, defacing property gives them a sense of worth, power and control, this transcends age, sex and race etc. I feel sorry for the person who keyed my car because fundamentally I can get it repaired (next week as it happens) their remedy to the issue is not as easy.
The issue over marques, a lot of people buy a car to project an image/and or their apparent wealth and status to other like minded people hence the perceived kudos in driving an Audi BMW Merc Porsche Range Rover (even though they are some of the most unreliable cars on the roads); this attracts kudos from some and jealousy and envy from others. The odd thing is that much of the new cars on the roads are not even owned by the people driving them; they are just borrowing them for about 3 years; as 91% of all new cars sold in the last 12months have been on PCP/Finance with a very small take up of the balloon payment, many opt to increase their debt for the next new one to borrow.
BTW - I’d power the lighting in the greenhouse using a solar-powered light unless you’re a hard-core winter gardener. I’m a fan of solar outside lighting. No faff with RCDs (which you should have on circuits outside the home), no outside mains etc. I’ve used Philips MyGarden lights for the drive and front door and solar security (dog) light from Costco.
At least you had the nerve to do that T, if it were me I would likely have died in a hail of bullets
You do have to be careful and think twice about this stuff... had a mate whose brother was stabbed to death when he went out to challenge a couple of guys vandalising a neighbours car about 20 years ago and there was yet another similar case here last year : https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-49374956
We have large Water Dragons (a close cousin to the Bearded Dragon) that live over our back fence, as they are a native to my area plus the occasional Carpet Python and Green Tree Snake that visit. Have seen a few Brown Snakes (venomous), plus the Koalas can often be heard with their loud grunting during the mating season.
Hi all! I'm a relative newbie to this site but i'm really appreciative of the wealth of knowledge you provide here. It really helped when I was troubleshooting for my 16vt. I now have a 20vt too and would like to tweak the handling for a slightly sharper road experience. I've taken on board a lot of the advice and was going to buy some Eibach springs and upgrade the rear ARB and buy the Bilstein B6's but see they are no longer sold for the front. My question is therefore is there something comparable for the fronts? If not, I'm guessing the ride would suffer from having different brands at the front to the back so ideally they should be same brand all round? Not sure if anyone has experience of upgrading purely the rear or splitting brands front to rear. Any feedback welcome! Thanks in advance

Have you tried troubleshooting the connection of the rear right hand ABS sensor? As far as I remember, they connect under the rear seats, inside the cabin. Try cleaning the connector, and measuring the resistance of the sensor itself to see if it's open circuit or not.
@Gripped - Yes, a friend has a unit of sorts I can use, he's a good egg! He's got a small welder but Joe will get the pleasure of this job sometime. We ground off the flakey stuff and painted to try and give it some protection.
@DaveG - there's some good stuff in there somewhere, I promise. But that bar will get a temporary piece welded on for the time being

I’m not really bothered by weight, but it’s a decent(ish) metric to measure yourself by, so I’m targeting trying to stabilise around 14st (at 5ft 9in I will still be classed as obese using BMI - which is hugely flawed anyway). I’m aiming to get back into rugby by September (eligible for the veteran league now!) so I really want to improve my overall fitness. I need a combination of strength and stamina.
