My C2 is my daily at the moment and has been since November. I gave up cleaning it as it just took ages so I found a mobile detailer who does the job every two weeks!

Why should I give those robbing barstewards 50 a month (if she’s not going anywhere), when the chumps I work with are poisoning the air I breathe with their DERVs whilst paying 20 a year!


Indeed. Surely it would be fairer to just work out the total HMRC VED income and add it to the pence per litre price of fuel, so if you don't use a car you don't pay tax. No faffing around with SORN type admin (perhaps a rebate scheme for commercial operators), no messing around with eejits at the DVLA, no tax avoidance.

They're going to have to find an alternative to VED as we switch to electric vehicles anyway, so get rid of it ASAP, I say.

My cars are laid up for months at a time. Initially I was brimming the tank, but it took ages of driving like miss daisy to run the old fuel out, so now I put the bare minimum in and drive straight to the petrol station when I use it.

C2s 997.1 that is a daily and on winter tyres and wheels. Good fun in the snow and no traction issues at all

Everything from taking the kids to school, shopping, down the garden centre and most other things

I simply don't bother now. I keep all documentation live- tax, test, insurance. I don't take it out if the weathers crap or road surface is wet and salty. But you do get the odd beautiful crisp winter days. And the turbo's love a bit of chilled air Wink

For saving a couple of bob on road tax I don't see the point. Just my 2 penneth, for those who like the hibernation ritual, crack on thumbsup



Oooh yeah, the candles come out we all run around naked singing.
You cant beat a ritual you really cant


Is this naked ritual meet in the events section? Cannot find it ?? Can I attend if I’ve only got a small candle?



even worse if its a small candle and a small flame. Must be my age nooo
