Bloody cars eh?

Post by Andys temperate tank »

I'm just having a rant here.

On my way to meet a couple of the lads for some fishing and my bloody car has broke down half way there. I only got the stupid thing fixed 2 weeks ago.

The only bonus is I've had to pull over opposite a pub.

Not a Series 320 eh? Known for Nikosil valve problems. I have had several BMWs. Great cars but kept away from the 320. I stopped buying BMWs when the dealers labout costs went to £140 per hour then plus parts then plus VAT!

As I reported in another thread all our vehicles had names (Current one, below, is Axel) Axel is a quite rare 1.6 litre with "Comfort" suspension, as befits an old gent :rolleyes: :shy:
