Default Is there a diagnose for this?? (Hgf object)

Is there a diagnose for doing frequent visits to the used cars websites, looking for potentials R75`s to buy without any need for them? And also go through available part stock in the shed and checking for space on the driveway for one more?? On several occasions I have been close to buy a few repair-objects located close to me, but they went because I never got time to decide to buy or not . When I sold my 1.8 for nearly 4 years ago, I promised myself that I should never own a K4 powered car again. I am close to buy a white 1.8 saloon now with HGF for a bargain price. It all depends on the overall state of the car... Hope it will be sold before I get the opportunity... Madness, its all about
I will report back in a few days...

Sorry... There isn't a cure. It's an addiction.

Sorry to hear about your affliction. I suppose you do know there is no antidote? I suspect there will be an anti Covid19 virus found before they discover one for Roveritus.

Judging by your earlier posts you should be able to fix a 1.8 with more or less your eyes closed. My daughter’s got a white Tourer, an early one, in NNZ but thankfully a V6. She’s just bought another V6 Tourer but an auto this time, and has sold her S-Max - perhaps she’s got the same affliction.

Keep well

Which Old English White? I've seen the pictures on the Norwegian FB site but it's difficult to tell if it's NNZ or NNX. My daughter's NNZ looks great when polished but it needs a deep clean first.

My trusty Freelander did the transportation job greatly. A task that is less complicated than adding pictures to this forum..... Photobucket was great to use, but we all know that this do not work properly anymore

Looks nice. Believe it or not I've found Biltema's pre-cleaner does an excellent job of lifting the hidden grime, cheap too. (note to others - Biltema bit like Halford's).

Agree that adding pictures is difficult, if only we could have a drag & drop system...

Keep well
