  1. A Rant

    General Chat
    I hate my Megane hate it more than I hated my first set of in-laws. Everything that could go wrong so far has gone wrong. I replaced the struts, new shock mounts and bearings. Serviced it, new tyres, new wing, new brakes. Yesterday evening the alternator light came on, had a look tensioner all...
  2. In need of a rant

    General Chat
    Today's is mobile phone users. Not the twassocks chatting away at the wheel while trying to change gear and steer but at a couple who thought they'd done the right thing and pulled over. First was on Friday evening on a set of country lanes I use frequently. Coming to a bend and can see beams...

    Cars & motoring
    Apologies to Mods if: This has been done to death before It is posted in the wrong section It's not really the correct platform to have a moan Since August, I have had to commute to work via the M5/M6 in Birmingham, which is arguably the worst in the UK for miserable motorway driving...
  5. Mindless vandalism rant!

    General Chat
    What the f*** is it with people these days? The wife, who remember only passed her test a couple of weeks ago, took her car over to the neighbouring town to visit the sister in law and was confronted with this when she came out to drive home :steam::steam::steam: Just when I had gone out...
  6. Cowboys! **rant**

    Engines
    First of all I am sorry for this rant but I am fed up. Ok here's the story, Tuesday my Clio was booked into my local garage for a cambelt replacment, I brought this car about 3 weeks ago with no history of the belt being done so I thought it is best to get it done asap. Well I got a phone call...
  7. Rear shock absorber rant! (how much?!)

    Steering and Suspension
    I bought a Y reg megane cabrolet 11 1/2 months ago, 2 months after I got it my right rear shock absorber went (when I say went I mean that there was a knocking coming from the back right of my car and the guys at the garage said that the shock absorber was "broken" (not his terminology!)) So I...
  8. Rant section

    Announcements
    Can we please have a section to vent please. Like I have just watched a crappy movie and would like to complain about it to someone, I mean seriously, that's 2 hours I've lost forever. We can also be car related and ***** about our dodgy electrics and road rage. It won't be too much extra...
  9. Why Slam So Hard?!

    Cars & motoring
    :mad::devil::mad: Why do people insist on slamming the boot/door of a car? I mean when they cause a richter scale event throughout your chassis and subframe. I just picked up my nephew from brother-in-law and SLAM went the boot [hatchback]. I swear, he grabbed it at its apex and followed...

    YouTube
    Possibly not everyone's cup of tea, but I liked it :) Maybe I feel sorry for him because I used to play the viola :p
  11. A rant about trading up...

    Photography Club
    I just received an EOS-20D I bought on eBay - my other dSLR is an Olympus E-500, which I bought at the time over a 350D firstly because I much prefered the handling and build quality of it over the Canon, and secondly because I liked the 4/3 system's ability to use most other manufacturer's...
  12. Rant about Quality - Broken Spring Now

    Cars & motoring
    Hi, Just went out to the car earlier today and noticed it sitting down lower than usual on the front near side. Ok I thought, no problem, we'll go out in the car that doesn't break at random intervals. So I'm now back and spent half an hour of my easter sunday with the overalls on and have...
  13. Tyre (rant) ?

    Wheels & tyres
    Relatively nice Oz wheels on my newly acquired Megane DTi Classic Sport and low profile tyres, but surely an average of 25psi on all four is on the low side. Wheels are 195/50R15 82V which in the book says 2.3 and 2.0 which must mean about 34 front and 30 back. Looked at Toyo site and they...

    Wheels & tyres
    Hi all, I really gotta rant just to wind down. Found out yesterday that I had a leaky rear brake cylinder:( . Bloke at the garage quoted me £136 to replace both sides (shoes and cylinders):( . There was no way I could afford this so I went to see my cousin who could get the parts cost price...
  17. A Rant (well 2 actually)

    Cars & motoring
    Rant 1 Driving to London and back in the van on Saturday I was amazed at the number of cars with their fog lights on! Visibility c.1 mile, clear sky and dry road. Why do people insist on frying my eye balls – especially on my way back in the dark!!! Let me tell you – you think it makes your car...
  18. Friday Rant

    General Chat
    What really gets on my nerves are people in the '10 items or less' or 'hand basket only' queue with trollies!! I stood in a queue 20 deep at lunchtime with only a sandwich and had to wait almost 15 minutes to get served :mad: These people clearly think they are above the rules, and tend to be...
  19. Paint rant.....

    Bodywork
    Hi. I have just received this letter as a E.Mail. When you first read it you may all say "so what" But keep reading down to the end. Here is the quote: Of course if the paints become unavailble, owners of all cars made until relatively recently may find it impossible to have repairs done to...
