    Default Why did I bother

    Picture the scene: Driving home from work tonight through Dumbarton, as I was slowly passing (at around 40mph) an old style rover coupe, I noticed the driverís side front wheel was wobbling.

    Wound down my window and tried to point in the direction of the front wheel and move my hand around to try and indicate a wobbling motion. The young Asian guy who was driving accelerated up beside me, gave me the V sign, and then drove off undertaking me.

    Was annoyed for a few seconds but ended up laughing it off (I would love to know what he thought I was doing).

    He is going to get a shock in the near future if he keeps driving it . Funny the sights you see on other cars when you are driving.

    Well it would have projected itself through the steering wheel so how the heck didn't he feel it (or maybe he did and wasn't bothered lol). He's next hard right hand bend could be interesting

    Wheel trim about to depart, I wouldn't have bothered myself I'm not a fan of ppl who drive Rover's, *Mrs D removed from that comment* normally one of two types, the 21 yr old mug who knows nothing about cars and some old tit that thinks it's a variomatic.

    Hi VV, defo wheel movement as I could see the tyre moving as well. As Gary says, you would have thought he would have felt it. I think this guy would fall into your 21 bracket.

    It would have bugged me if I had not tried to point it out

    You gotta see it this way sometimes Swatty, he obviously saw himself as Prince Nazim cruising around in his stealth Bugatti, so when the wheel falls off and mods the wing and suspension he can only blame himself, from what you say maybe someone helped those bolts make a break for it.
