    Default Just saying hello

    Good morning one and all

    Iíve been lurking since I bought the car on the 1st Feb and thought it was about time I introduced myself.

    My car is a black 3.0 CDTI SRI estate, 05 plate with 74k on the clock (well it did have when I bought it but now it has 78k on it) that I would guess was probably owned by someone on here from some of the little ďbitsĒ Iíve found so far. Loving the car so far, although there are some areas which will need a little tweaking So far all that Iíve got round to changing is the dipped and main beam bulbs, fog light bulbs (front and rear), brake light bulbs, reversing bulbs, rear wiper blade, pollen filter (whilst fixing the squeaky fan unit), all 4 disks and pads and the brake fluid. Iíve also fitted my old Parrot i9200 kit (nice to be able to listen to the ipod) and updated the firmware on the radio/nav. I guess that Iím just spending too long driving it to actually get round to modding it

    Anyway, enough about the hearse (as SWMBO delightfully calls it ), Iíll tell you about me. Iím a balding middle aged man who drives a lot (about 60-70k miles a year) who loves cars and driving. I used to rally and do sprints. I like to modify my cars, mainly in terms of handling, braking and going faster Ė not really in to the cosmetic stuff, I like my cars to look non-descript and just blend in to the crowd, the talk softly but carry a sodding big stick approach My car history includes a 450bhp SAAB 9000, a 300bhp Skoda Octavia, a 250BHP Octavia diesel, a 230BHp Fiat Uno, well you get the pictureÖ I am a RoSPA diploma holder and advanced tutor, I used to be in the HPC, and ARDS instructor and Iíve done the TPAC course. I have done suspension testing and development for KW, Spax and Leda and tyre testing for Continental, Dunlop and Pirelli.

    Right now I feel I have introduced myself, Iím off to do some more reading up on my new hearse, sorry, car.

    Well, well, another Briskoda refugee. Hi, Jon!
    Philc here, no longer a Skoda or Signum owner, but still here.
    I remember you being interested in the 3.0 CDTI when I mentioned it in the "other place"
    Enjoy the car!

    Mornin' Phil, wondered if you'd be on here. Guess it's no surprise that you are

    What you got now?

    Economics struck, I'm afraid!
    The Signum went a few weeks ago, as it was just being used for the wife and dog to commute to work -we now have a new Meriva Turbo. I Commute Luton to Brentford in a trusty Astra 1.9 diesel.
    I've been hanging around here since about day 1, and you'll find lots of like minded and helpful folks. And a few nutters .
