  1. cool, i'll get Mrs P to put a bid on that. Thanks for doing that for me mate. Yeah its a shame but even on my princely wage, with Mrs P not working we just can't afford to run the Lex at the moment, and the boot space keeps catching us out :)
  2. thanks Aztec. Yeah we are all good, Ickle P is turning into a great character, she could just do with learning how to go to sleep. I haven't got my manual to hand as the IS is at home, so if you've got time I would appreciate it otherwise i'll have a look tonight. However sadly I must admit that the IS days are numbered. Mrs P wants to get an estate I'm afraid so I may be offering it on these pages first in the next month or two. LOC will get first refusal tho as its only polite because of all the help you guys have given me in the past.
  3. Hi guys I have posted on here for ages but have been lurking about just fingering me booty (gold booty not the other sort ya dirty gets) We are going camping in a couple of weeks and given that fact that a 9 month old baby requires as much equipment as Scott of the antarctic, I am looking into ruining what little fuel economy I have left by borrowing a roof box. However, having never used a roof box before I need some roof bars and found these on Ebay. Roof bar thingy's Are these the right thing? I thought they would run along the roof and not across it. Also how do you fit them, I'm sure my IS doesn't have the black guttery things with the slide out cover other cars have got. Any advice would be appreciated of course.
  4. Soak them in warm water to expand the plastic?

  6. Ok so some idiot has scraped up the side of my IS200 , nothing major a very light dent but mainly paintwork removed. Does anyone know a good quality but cheap place I can get this repaired.
  7. pretty good but i need to get FRAPS running as I get a bit of slowdown running Bioshock on full settings (mind you its so goddamn scary I have only been playing it a bit) :(
  8. Any PC gamers out there using Steam for TF2, Css etc. If so send me a friend invite on Steam my ID is Pir8pete. Lets get teh fragging on baby ;)
  9. Engineering manager for a company making tubes. Just started recently so money is not as good as I was on before but the job is a hell of a lot better, and I get to look out at the Malverns :)
  10. Running an overclocked PC and PC gaming in general is (was??) my hobby. However it has been made abundantly clear to me that my new purchase of a PC will cause arguments and I won't see my daughter growing up cos I will be upstairs playing Bioshock. *sigh* so no, no other hobbies at the moment.
  11. Those two dates are good for me, hopefully we can make it this time now we can travel with the little one a bit. Would prefer not to have to travel for over an hour tho :( However I am feeling magnanamous so will go with the flow :)
  12. ahh consoles....... What you really want is a gaming PC, just like the one I'm gonna buy in about 5mins :)
  13. Congratulations mate, we had a little girl 5 weeks ago and I don't think the bags under my eyes are ever gonna go down :)
  14. hey we're talking about the American military here :)
  15. *shakes fist* Damn your eyes man. My PC is still defunct after the father in law installed a new hot water system in the loft and 'forgot' to put a dustcover over my PC, Dust + High end PC = smoke and dead PC. However I am just gonna buy a new one so I'll see you on TF2 soon :)
  16. Any chance of a change of location to somehwhere nearer Birmingham, its a bit of a way for anyone down my end. (or is it only me) :)
  17. shame that its rear end is as ugly as my mother in law. /shudder
  18. No. really. just don't. Cos then they'll have you on the database and call you every week for the next five years. We had our windows done when we moved in and stupidly Staybrite gave me a quote. This idiot came round and tried to tell me that UPVC isn't plastic. Now I worked in plastic for a long time so I asked what UPVC stood for, apparently its unpasturised poly vinyl chloride, rather than unplasticised pvc, but then he said because its unplasticised its not a plastic . ****. So then he wittered on while Mrs P and I looked at our watches, and intimated we needed to go somewhere. Then la piece de resistance, he says that there is a gas in between the panes of glass. What gas? I said. Erm I erm don't know he goes. So as Mrs P stifles a giggle I say "Is it Hydrogen?" "Yes" he says, "hydrogen thats it", "So hydrogen is an inert gas is it" "yes" he says. "Funny I was taught hydrogen was explosive and thats what they filled the Hindenberg with, and that went up in a fireball killing everyone on board" "The what?" he says. At his point Mrs P is laughing out loud and I am ushering the idiot out the door. Oh and when they did quote it was £10,000 more expensive than the next expensive quote. Unfortunately he got the last laugh cos I now get a call every week from them asking if I want new windows. For teh last 18 months I have just been putting the phone down but they did catch me on a bad day once and I threatened to come to their office and spray paint my name and number on their wall so as not to call it, if they didn't take me off their database, which of course they didn't. Cold calling double glazing, don't even tempt them. :tsktsk:
  19. I know this is a daft question (meh when has that ever stopped me) but where is the CD/DVD player for the sat nav so i can get the disk out?
  20. I dunno if she is sexy but I'm sure she gets more insistent if you miss a turn, and it had to reroute you. I wonder if you keep taking the wrong turns on purpose does she eventually go "I said LEFT you SILLY @RSE"
  21. I was thinking the same as u lol ;) Davos to Stelvio just so you don't forget :)
  22. well Youtubes audience is international, and i guarantee you someone will do it. Just not from this forum :)
  23. yeah they look good and Mrs P approves of this new erm 'Safety feature' ;)
