    BMW 1 series

    Hi all, I'm not very car-minded but the time has come to change my car (stolen/recovered). I'm thinking of a BMW 1 series, small enough, a bit whizzy, maybe lacking interior space (I haven't investigated yet). Are these cars a good buy?

    What are you currently driving?

    Looking for a couple of pointers! My trusty Corsa SXI has served me well(ish) for the last 3 years but she's now sadly coming to the end. I'm saving hard at the moment with a view to buying a BMW 1 Series 123d M Sport 2.0L sometime early next year. Question is, can't decide if it's the...
  3. Vodafone

    Found this on another forum, had me in stitches! Dear All I thought I would share my ongoing, and unresolved, problems with Vodafone in case anyone had never used their crummy tax-avoiding service before. In summary, I have spoken to a total of 14 (forteen) different customer services...

    Were you in the Blue Boar pre Huddersfield match?

    Request from a Huddersfield supporter on 606: Trying to get hold of a couple of your fans who we met in there and ended up in a chinese restaurant in town, one was also a spurs fan if that helps, top weekend down there. His other half is on the right in this pic, he apparently has a silver...

    Just a little help for anyone travelling by car. Take the third exit on the first roundabout as you come of the A12, past Mini and BMW. Keep on going until you come to a junction and turn down into the Buisiness Park. If your in the right place you should see a couple of car garage's as you turn...

    Getting itchy feet with the whole car thing, may well have to say sod it to the finances and treat myself again (yes I know I said elsewhere that the mortgage was my priority but....). Which of these would you go for: M5 - Top end performance and handling in a subtle style: 645 Sport -...

  12. Need a new(ish) car - "advice" please

    Ok, really struggling with this one. I've currently got a BMW 323i coupe which has to go as I now have a 3 month old baby - it's just not practical. My budget is 8-10k and it needs to have good boot space, child friendly and be good on a run as we plan to drive down to the south of France...
  13. Do you know what Car Sodje Drives?

    An old, yes old, PURPLE Nissan Micra. What a legend. He really is. No "superstar" about him at all, plays football because he loves football. It's a prize picture, seeing him get into a small car for such a big bloke. It almost looks out of place, next to the Bmw 4x4's and the lotus'. Perhaps...
  14. Loan Signings

    Heard today that we'd tried to get Julian Gray from Birmingham and Matthew Spring from Watford but can't afford the wages. Why the hell go after players that you can't afford - it's like me wasting my own time test driving a BMW when I know that I can only afford a 10 year old...
