I think this thread could have a bit of mileage.

Basically a thread to offer car related items/bits/parts which you wish to give away, IE free, so it's not a selling thread.
You know, the sort of things which you'll never get around to using, aren't worth the faff of eBay'ing, but which seem too good to take to the tip.

The sort of thing which others may think 'I like that' or 'I could really use that'.

Simply state the item, a pic if easy, and your rough location.

I thought about this when I saw a book that I'd got for Christmas, which is of no interest to me. So on that note, my rather lacklustre first offering to the thread (NG20)

Nice idea. I bought a tuning box for a Mk3 Mondeo ST-TDCI a long time ago and when I came to install it, I discovered a previous owner had already fitted one! Year later or so I removed that one as well, so I have two tuning boxes here in Northampton NN5 for someone if they want it...

Just a bump (hope that's not against the rules, I won't do it again!) as likely far more are online in the evening than the day.
Surely most of us have car bits no longer needed, and this thread could gain traction?

I have new and unused:

A set of discs for a 1.6 alfa 147or 156 (pre facelift, ie smaller diameter)

An Alfa 156 cv joint (1.6 and 1.8)

I painted the disc hubs before fitting (realising they were too small) and I scrapped the car before fixing the clicking joint.

There's probably a ton of other bits and bobs but they spring to mind.

See what I mean guys, that's got to be a £50 freebee. This could be the PH equivalent to Freecycle, except with more trusted members. By the same note I'm sure I'll have some bits, except the house is mid renovation and I haven't the faintest where anything is furious

I have one other actually. A brand new unopened Burago 1:18 British Racing Green E-Type Jag. The eBay ad showed a silver blue pic (my favourite E colour) and buried in the ad it said 'may be silver/red/green. Raised the issue, and for what ever reason the retailer refunded before I returned (as I'd not got around to it for ages)

Cost me £32, and just sat here as I don't like BRG, and have since bought a silver blue model.

Nice idea

I’ve got most evo magazines from issue # 40 to current available. Want to keep some including ECOTY, but most are available

Pick up from midlands.

Not exactly glamorous but I was given a set of amber indicators for a BMW E46 - mine are clear so they're no good to me. Swindon

Ah OK, a bit far. I'll not commit as it could become something I'll never get around to. Mind, I'll PM if going down the M1 to Sarah's olds in London, are you far off the M1?
