Every other forum I'm a member of has one of these threads as a sticky and it is well used with more posts than any other on the 5 x sites I frequent.

Cosmetic things mainly that make you feel good, from a wash, new tyre caps/accessories and wheels/tyres.

Can the Mods make it so? :D

As a first post I had Michelin CrossClimate+ XL tyres fitted today, and paid less than £450 all in (17 inch on my Icon) Plus I also get a free amazon Eco for buying 4! :)

Night and day difference and taking corners in the wet with these fitted and I realise what a wallowy old hector the Primacy 3's made the car feel like!

If/when I sell mine I'll put the original primacy 3's back on as the tyre size fits most nissan jukes and kumquat's, given that I've done 16k miles in 18 months and still have 6mm on the primacy 3's I should be able to sell the CC's for around £250 if they've the same

Yes but she washes it, pays for insurance, servicing and fuel, so the least you can do is to fill it up? :D

Sheesh no wonder I'm single! :(

Haha, chance would be a fine thing.

I wash it, pay for the insurance and servicing and usually end up putting the fuel in it.

Think the only thing she does is drive it.

Latest update, mounted a Bearlock theft system. Some really heavy hardware that prevent your C-HR to put out of ´P´.
So just like your bike you put a lock on it.. when its in ´P´. No laptop or tablet can open that kind of mechanical lockup.. :mrgreen: ;)

Confused.

The legend says you have a hybrid but the picture looks like a manual transmission?

It was rhetorical as already knew it wasn't the case, as it isn't for most married men. Takes me back to when I bought the (now Ex) wife a Citroen C3 in 2004, it was a small car with front and rear parking sensors.

She backed into an 8ft tall breeze-block wall that then collapsed on the back of the car and caused £1200 of damage to the car (£800 to the wall). Not only did she blame the wall for not being constructed properly but she also expected me to pay for damage and/or claim it on insurance.

Needless to say she was surprised when I refused and insisted she paid out of her own pocket....NOT I hasten to add the reason she's my Ex :eek:

There is an expression known as 'kitten-flogged' (or some-such?) and proud to say it doesn't apply to me :lol:

I believe you are mistaken, if yours looks like that then you're driving a 1.2 manual

Look at top of the gear lever and you can clearly see the international change gate symbol for manuals :)

Question, if you did the mod to your car why didn't you simply take a picture of the mod and post it up, as opposed to one from www :idea:
