Well after suggesting Jedburg, Mrs316 reminded me we'll be in Egypt so i'll be having a barge spotting day out in Cairo on the 27th
Hahaha... that’s going to be as easy as 123. Shame you won’t be able to make it, I’ve been in touch with Kevin, he’s going to be gutted when you’re not there. laugh

Disappointingly the wife has booked a full social calendar without consultation between xmas and 2019, so I'm out for barging frown

I have a mini fleet policy via a specialist broker which means I can add extra cars whenever. It works out cheaper than having a separate policy for each car. There is a PH post about just this here

Is that with Paceward then? That could be very useful for threadists.

There's a 03 plate Forester on Facebook, it's the turbo model, in silver but has leather and is auto, so that meets my basic criteria.
It's on 197k miles but has a good MOT history and current one runs till August.
As it's a fair way away (Canvey Island) and £650 it's going to be a single fare ticket and buying blind.
What could go wrong?

On a slightly related note, what's my best option insurance wise? When I ran the mx5 I ran it on classic insurance but not sure how to run a second car, I'm with Adrian Flux on the E55.
Regarding the Forester it's pretty much throw away money but I'd still want to know when the belts were last done as you don't want it to let you down at the worst possible moment.
The autobox makes the already terrible fuel economy worse and removes part of what makes these appealing to me, they're fun to drive. I think they're great cars being more or less an Impreza on stilts.

Here's another one which might be closer to you It also has the benefit of suede rather than plastic leather.

I had an Outback for a few years (it might even have been a thread purchase from back in the day). Lovely thing to mooch about in, however it drank like a fish and any sub £2k Subaru is pretty much throwaway if it breaks, as parts can be hard to find and ridiculously expensive.

I'd have another though, it never actually let me down.

What is it with thread regulars doing the full-on tease act ... come on man, spit it out!

And with your previous Woody, I'm expecting a slightly left-field choice. Nice work; I'm living vicariously through you lot at the moment so the more purchases the better.

I never like to jinx it. I will say it's rather sensible by my standards.

Chances of that running again are in the slim/none range I'd have thought.

Strongly priced, but tidy looking E430 in a pleasing colour:

Thank you for your input everyone, its made interesting reading.

I'm currently settled on RainExpert 3's in 88 flavour which BlackCircles can do for about £52 a corner, fitted. I looked closely at the CrossClimates which also come highly rated by our informed threadists; they're closer to 70 a corner and only in 92 load rating (in my area at least). It makes quite a difference to the budget when you're looking at 5 tyres.

I just had a look at the spare for the first time - flatter than a witch's tit. I've blown it up and hope its not a complete waste of time. Happy to report, as one might expect of a vehicle of such quality, the spare is a full size alloy, not a can of squirty cream as found in modern offerings.

Unfortunately not. Sadly saloons are simply not practical for me any more.

If that’s all that’s wrong with it, I don’t think it’s as terminal as it sounds.
If my memory serves me right, it’s the popular Lampredi based engine, and so may share same common components as the Integrale, so parts should be plentiful.
I think the bodies on these were galvanised, and didn’t suffer the terminal rot of earlier Lancias.
If only I had the garage space, I would be tempted.

There's no denying the appeal of a rear clock. Can't be too many cars that have that. I guess it's more important in a LWB car where the driver's usually awful green digital numbers are a long way away.
