  1. I still drop by occasionally, but rarely long enough to log in. Hope everyones well
  2. Flying visit? thought i'd sign in. quite a few familiar faces around still. hope you had a gd bday.
  3. Unless you're in a position to know something others don't then theres really only luck involved. Advice is to look at the area you're in. The RAF etc, if any parts or contracts come up try and investigate which suppier is behind it and buy their shares. Just play smart dont try and buy shares in areas you'r not familiar with or you will make peanuts, or worse still lose money. And remember alot of what you read in the public domain is mis-direction, other traders want you to pee your money away. I also suggest sitting back for six months and tracking various companies. By the end of the six month you will have a better trend analysis and you can make a more informed investment.
  4. looks like im the only one who shops at tesco then.
  5. i dont use the tabaco flavourings. Taste horrid, my favourite is the watermelon, strawberry and mint leaf. You just wait for the Titan, your first lug of that will blow your socks off!
  6. theres actually very little cheating online via consoles. Its ussually just an age old "im not rubbish, they must be cheating".
  7. i didn't come here to start a fire, well maybe a little spark. It was just an observation on the op title. Nothing on escort owners past or present, i was one after all.
  8. why? What a stupid comment. really, theres a lot people rushing to your defense splashing their BARS. its like going to an bugatti owners club and asking if there are any Post man there. Seriously, even if any laywers can be found on here, they probably aren't worth taking advice from.

Collect-and-return warranty (Still has a couple of months left i guess) This is supplied with a vista 32bit, However its currently running a legimate copy of Windows 7 pro 64bit which im also using on my deskop (you get two activations with each serial) - ideally i would like someone to provide there own serial, or i can put it back to vista. However if its a trusted member i can be persuaded to leave this version on on the promise the serial isn't used again. There are some minor blemishes to outer screen bezel where is closes the red is dulling but nothing you would likely spot. There is also a slight scratch on the screen about 2mm off centre to the left - which again your unlikely to notice. Will play any game on high settings (with a couple of exceptions).

  10. pmsl @ lawyers on a Escort site.
  11. Called cartmisors or something, Nah, never used one, but not being able to top the fluid up as and when i want, and with what fluid i want is a no go for me. looks like Ill be ok then, I bought one of the kits Foxdie recommended for indoor use (home) and one of the more aesthetically pleasing fag like ones for when I'm out or working on the motor (I believe the out & about on only functions during suction so that must be one of those auto battery ones you mentioned Foxdie) cheers muchly for the inputs lads....and lady(I'm guessing as the name looks like "Hayley" ), really helped me out Give us the link to the one you purchased? I might have some "spares" i can forward on thats the titan starter kit you recomended I think(I believe its a Titan 510) titan clicky and this is the fag like one for outside car use (its just called a white super I think?) white clicky I got the super as my first ecig, they're alreet like, but it just doesn;t compare to the titan, i've got about 30 or so prefilled carts of various mg, 2x batteries, charger and spare atomiser if your interested. They are black though. the "501" refers to the screw fitment, the super i believe is a 901.

  13. oh they're aren't heavy, but they're not really suitbale for hanging out the side of your mouth as it hurts your teeth after a couple of hours.
  14. they're UK based company. But ship to US. I may have given you the international link. UK site http://www.totallywicked-eliquid.co.uk/ If you are intending on using it while working under a car etc, you might want to invest in a "automatic battery". Basically most long term users use the manual battery as the vapor product is more constistant, but an autobatery detects you "sucking" and activates the vapour production being you can use it hands free. Its your call, but autobatteries in my experience aren't half as good.
  15. Try e-cigs. All the "positives" of smoking with non of cancer and smells. www.totallywicked-eliquid.com I quite smoking back in 2008 and moved onto these instead for my evenings out etc. Its a great replacement if you still want the habbit without the health issues The titan e-cig is my recommendation.
  16. Nothing special, clutch was supplied and fitted for £500 so was suprised with £800 - £1000 quote myself. I know the fiesta requires the the engine dropping to release the gearbox form the subframe. But i think standard ford time is 3.5hrs?? With the bearings will they replace the diff? i wonder if its worth sticking a quaife or puma racing diff in there for an extra couple of hundred.
  17. i would hope so, only the first garage had it up on the ramp, and i have all my work done by them as they're honest and i love their work, but they only mention that they'd laser measure the lowered arms and height - but im assusing they would consider the brakes?!? The second (who im REALLY friendly) said he wouldn't take my money off me for a full check and 4 wheel geomtry as he was confident it wasn't the issue.
  18. Just had a new service and MOT on my Fiesta ST. I had a little issue with what i thought was my tracking, Turns out theres nothing wrong with my steering, or suspension. The garage suggested it might be my gearbox bearings. I've recently had to have my clutch replaced after it failed and took my hydrolic out. My question is this the issue? I got a second opinion (from another trusted garage) and they suggested it would its possible and its not the first fiesta ST he's had this issue on. Issue is im still not 100%. This would be okay, except it still doesn't explain the uncentered steering wheel. What are the chances it could be a sticking caliper? Just to go into more detail on the issues: the steering wheel is a rotated counter clockwise by about 15' degrees. When i accelerate it (with no adjustment on the steering wheel in its offcentre position) veers to the right, quite severlyj. When i brake it veers to the right (and pull hard on the steering wheel) - its also take an unatural rightwise motion coming off a speed bump/pothole. When im cruising off the accelerator it veers left (about the same angle as you would expect with steering wheel in its position). Its not really an issue around town, but on a motoway its quite energy sapping having make thousands of mini corrections on the steering wheel + Plus at £1k to have the gearbox stripped and rebuilt i rather explorer alternative ideas. So help required. Thanks, Paul
