  1. Store

    So anyway guys its good to be back, But I would like to buy some stickers for my 'new' car, but cant seem to get anything on store. Are they still available and if so how do I access/find them. I liked the 'subtle' old ones but anything would do. Cheers Colin
  2. I have been a very satisfied customer of Opie for a while now. (Castrol edge 5/30) at a bargain price less than good old Halfords inc trade card. (how much longer can they survive) even inc postage. Marvelous service with the oil always arriving the next day. Only one complaint, the website wont let me put my car '04 yaris t sport' in for oil filter reference ??? But that apart Fab company to deal with. Thanks Mr Opie, and thanks for your 'instant' advice on product suitability, Cheers Colin Shurvell.
  3. Im Back

    Well Guys, its been a long time since I was able to access this wonderful site. In the meantime I swapped my beloved t sport for a 1.3 manual Iq, which I hated, kept for 2 years until I managed to find another 5dr T sport which the dealer agreed to do a straight swap. Mmmm Oh well at least I got back into a proper car. Its a thunder 04 with 53k miles and a dodgy repair to the n.s. rear door, (does anyone have an unmarked thunder one going spare) Had a nightmare rattle, which is why the previous owner got rid. Turned out to be the sunroof, which a piece of foam rammed in above the operating rods in the roof cured, Yippee, and has since been totally trouble free. Just passed Mot an hr ago. Uses no oil between changes (castrol edge 5/30) and fuelly sez 50.3mpg. Dash says 48.6 at mo. Mind u I coast in neutral nearly as much as im in gear in our lovely rural Devon. Anyway, apart from a new set of Dunlop Sport Bluresponse fitted the day after I got it to replace the mismatched 'economy' tyres it came with, (they have transformed the drive) it has only cost me oil and filters. Im thrilled and end up going for a drive nearly every day. Ive had it a year in 2 weeks and have already done 16k. Its good to be back. Cheers Colin
