    you are going to have to treat the rust before apply 'special spray' unless, as Prince says, you are going to weld in new metal. How serious is the rust - has it gone right through?

    govt to look at raising the limit to 80.

    80mph sounds about right and it will be good if/when it takes effect. Agree with HDi's comments about BRAKE. Have read very little about what they have done/proposed but what i have read smacks of nonsense.

    Cars becoming status symbols

    think it depends on the people themselves. Some definately buy the car just for the badge, personally i like driving the Scooby which is why i have it, am looking for an Evo but have yet to test drive one and if i dont like it i wont buy it. i want something that is fun and has some decent...

    "Asleep" at the wheel

    yes, its damn scary stuff. Had worked for a day and a half solidly at 2 separate jobs and was on my way back home, to a well earned sleep, just sort of drifted off and when startled myself awake - was ok for position on the road but had the windows right down and turned the stereo up full - was...

    Car Parks

    I hate parking in the supermarket at the best of times but out of necessity had to make a dash to Sainsbury's. Pull into the parking space, baby and child as had the wee boy with me, and was cleary not in the space and so had to reverse a bit to straighten up. Some complete bell end had seen me...

    Yes - numerous times - and actually, to be honest, in some instance i do regret it. Normal reason is getting cut up

    Tar Spots

    Was giving the Subaru its bi-annual wash when i was over and fond, to my horror, that up to about the lower window line its had tiny spots of black tar everywhere - when it was dirty it was visible to the naked eye but after washing you could feel the roughness across the paintwork. Had to T-Cut...

    Wonderwheels alloy wheel cleaner

    i found wonder wheels on the Subaru pretty ineffective at doing anything. The brake dust is somewhat baked on and it seems that they suffer from this but liberal applications of wonder wheels didnt really do very much (this maybe down to incompetence or just the stuff i was using is probably...

    Summer winter car

    dont see any point unless you have something with powerful RWD and then its not much fun in the snow. The Scoob is great in the winter, if i had a cabrio then maybe that would be for summer use, fine in Vietnam but in Scotland - lets be realistic - i would use it about 2 days a year

    best sports car for UK roads

    Impreza for me. But on the 'B' roads with the Tein suspension its a bit of a handful, you actually need to back off or your liable to end up in a field.

    The First car to clock 3 Million miles?

    think of the monotony of sitting in the same seat for 45 years!

    Do they have a high spec model of the car you have with more toys in it? as typically manufacturers using the same loom and just plug more things into it the higher spec the car is.

    Why bays are so small

    Failure to notify of disposal of vehicle

    JC, await to hear the amusing response from the DVLA on this - but bets on that as you didnt sign the v5 they are going to somehow get this out of you. They do hold all the cards in this.

    low rpm turbo = better fuel economy ??

    all of this makes a difference. Tyres can make a huge difference. As per BBJ's comment, have to agree, this is surely a pointless exercies any possible beneift, if their really is any which doubt, would be more than absorded by the mamouth cost incurred by modifying the engine to suit.

    Ever been sad to sell a car

    regretted selling my Pug 205 GTi, not even sure why i did it but to free up garage space as didnt need the money. the only good thing was bought for 500 quid, had it for 3 years and sold it for the same amount of money. still long after it sometimes though as it was very solid car.

    Another Battle in the War against the Motorist

    this is terrible, if the police have something against you personally this could cause real problems as they do, as in most professions (i.e. theiving scummy lawyers) act as a gang. Come here, Vietnam, if you want to see bad, or more rightly, careless driving. I actually think UK drives, in...

    Does your mood affect your driving?

    I'm with you on this one, if I'm angry or annoyed then really tend to take it out on the car. and, like above from others, if i let someone out etc... and not even a thanks then everyone else during that journey can forget about receiving any nice gestures.

    Wrong side of the road

    sometimes when i am back in the UK, normally on the first day back, i have to think myself about which side of the road to be on. The only time i normally see drivers approaching on the wrong side it isnt foreigners but normally some young tw*ts who have been trying to overtake for the past two...

    Business idea

    if a lot for sale then suspect that many people thought its easy to set up and so easy money - they have then started and found out that this is not the case, so epeating whats already mentioned above, you have to be really committed to it to make something happen. i would really love to buy...

    Dealing with tailgaters

    depends what i'm driving and where i am. Going past the house is a 40mph zone, often get tailgating through this area so if coming up to the house entrance then just slam the brakes on, if they hit then 100% they are to blame.

    Think! Bike

    indicating or not he still had the responsiblity to turn and check as well, especially if he had stopped and then was starting off again. based on the facts from your side then would agree with you. Not much else you could have done, imo, in this situation.
