Spotted a Red R-Reg (think it was a turbo) parked up on a street off Wakefield Road in Ackworth when I was house-hunting yesterday. Jealous cos it looks like it works properly. And it turns out I can't afford the houses round there.




That sounds like mine - how much do you want to spend on a house? Happy to give some local advice if you want.

120-180k, but we can't find what we want in the part of Ackworth we really like for that money, so we're also looking in:

Darrington, Wentbridge, Kirk Smeaton, Norton and Campsall.

BUT.... we've got to sell ours first

P.S. Re: advice - could do with a list of 'no-go' areas if you've got one! Cheers.

Not exactly coop spotting but we've had discussions before about Leeds servicing. Decided I couldn't fit in a trip to Brum to visit Iceberg for the 108K service so based on a recommendation here went to Simon Green's in Horsforth.

Was quite pricey for a major service (290 quid) but those boys are thorough and know what they're doing (looks they have a lot of performance cars in). Gave me a full run through of what they'd done and what was good/bad, they even do a kind of semi-waxoyling treatment underneath.

So, a little expensive, but very thorough and professional and I didn't have to travel to Brum. Don't know how they are on cambelt type jobs, but seem to know their stuff.

Next up give it a good clean and polish, condition the leather and put the little chap up for sale. That will be a sad day

I need my cam belt done soon. And I think I'm going to get it done with Wigan Paul. His website quotes just under £500.

Just had a full service and MOT done at Bows Garage in Sheffield (recommended in the forum - 10/10). Cost £250 all in including new front pads and bulbs. They were unable to do break fluid as they had much difficulty removing old pads . Not sure if niggling probs sorted like front wipers. Thought they were trustworthy but not sure on capability with major technical issues.
Supplied my own oil - Mobil 1 at Costco at £23.00 incl vat
Impressed with Fiat Keighley - I damaged f/n/s wheel arch liner and gasket and they've been able to source parts within 48hrs. They claimed they had no prob getting spares for coop but Alt Autos likely to be cheaper.

Nice looking porto coop in Shipley station car park today on personalised plate. Sadly marred by an English flag stuck to the window. I would say that being a rabid Scot - now where's my ABBA collection. Nah - only joking - Engerland, Engerland etc etc

Hey Mr C that was probably me. Just sent you a pm but it looks like your inbox is stuffed. Notice you're going to the meet in Brighouse on Tues. Hopefully see you there.

Sounds like the one. Didn't notice the dent but only really saw the back and near side. If she needs a body shop I can recommend a good one...
