  1. Safe for now...... He's away erectin a 5 foot fence round his garden.........if he cannae see oot, he thinks we cannae see in.........Baby Ostrich Syndrome (B.O.S...........) 5 feet............. height or girth ?
  2. Be interesting to see how far off topic this thread goes before it gets Removed Yonder by a 54 bowling ball.
  3. Favourite group, Baws Scaggs ? I'll just Lido Shuffle off. Withheld.
  4. Have to see it in the flesh, but Jag don't bad cars so I expect it too be good.
  5. Hey is that the REDBUNTY from 1954 ?
  6. The one I used to get was "Speed And Power"
  7. Unwrapped- http://images.cdn.autocar.co.uk/sites/autocar.co.uk/files/imagecache/article_image_480/CX17-LA1_0.jpg
  8. White SR, don't know if they still do it Charlie but I've bought previous cars from uncle Arnold that have been At other branches which they ship to your local one. http://www.arnoldclark.com/used-cars/toyota/rav-4/2.2-d-cat-sr-5dr-auto/2011-(11)/ref/arndx-u-5026/
  9. I stand corrected o great king of parts and pies. That was the 2.4d not the 2.5 d4d the OP has enquired aboutYes well as you can see I did actually manage to read Kingos post as well.
  10. Another point to consider if you go for the old heavies, you need to cut / modify the plastic protectors underneath. Oops min........new wan on me........no comprende.......what plastic? On the 4.3 there is a small amount of cutting of the plastic undertrays to be done to allow the support rails to be bolted to the underside of the body. Not sure if same on 4.4........See page 4 of attached PDF Indeed, a bit of cutting to be done. If you opt for the stylish ones, you just remove one clip, slacken off a plastic nut and slip the long angle bracket underneath the plastic covers. Then re-tighten the plastic nut, re-fit the clip. Funnily enough though, Chaps, if you look at the installation manuals for both types, the oldies are quoted as 9.8 Kg and the stylish are 23 Kg........A typo surely.
  11. Guess it depends on the vintage of engine you are considering. One of my work colleagues dabbled a bit in buying/selling older 4X4's. He experienced cracked heads twice, so never touched another. Said he started reading up on them and reckoned it could be common. As the saying goes, ye pays yer money..................................
  12. That engine is infamous for cracked cylinder heads IIRC.
