What about the C5 reworks? 194 > 207 then 211
This wonderfully memorable 500,000th post needs to be embedded in our Forum masthead, as our equivalent of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "Ultimate Question" (the answer for which was, of course, "42").

Now, if FCF were to be remembered for just one thing (except Jim, naturally), this could well be it.

PS Could these be 'bus routes? Where would they take us? :dunno:

I have created a thread of its own for the momentous 500,000th post to the FCF, to give it a wider audience than POTD alone.

That's a very upmarket Costa! I bet they charge a special premium for their coffee in a place like that....

That's a Spanish holiday destination isn't it James? :lol:

haven't seen a rear engine Skoda on the road in Donkeys years. This one looked kinda 'patinated' but still in use.
I believe that, all joking aside (we all know there were plenty of those), they were damn good cars... but never drove one.

And a definite Grrr !! moment. Anyone else favour Blind spot mirrors by the way?

Yes wing mirrors aren't wing mirrors any more, more often than not huge door mirrors that blot out a surprising amount of road at T-Junctions.

I have used this mob before for wing mirror glass with good service, good price, and free first class delivery with Royal Mail ordered it late Sunday night arrived from Redruth in Cornwall Tuesday morning.
