Nice!! Didn't think it would go down so much, so soon. Magic 25 always helps :)
Still raping you big style on it though as it's still just under £2500 :P

The Olympics event timetable just went round on an email at work. All the Equestrian events fall on the weekends – hell yes! :D

You fancy coming over and cleaning my room? I'll definitely say cheers like :P


Don't tempt me! A few years ago I cleared out Toki's room as a birthday present, his mum stopped doing it when he was about 15 and he'd never attempted since.
Beside his bed, there was about 3 inches of dust containing condom wrappers from 2004. It was brutal, took all day, but his mum fucking loved me for it :lol:
I really like cleaning :eyes:


Some people cleaned up a friend of a friend's flat a while back and found a pork chop down the back of his radiator. When they questioned him about that he said "yeah, that's been there for ages". Both my friend and his friend are now both doctors. :lol:
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Hmm?! I'll keep this in mind. I turn 30 a fortnight after renewing my insurance and I had an accident in 2007, that come September won't have to be declared.

It might be worth me having a policy for a few months and coughing up the cancellation fee. Only problem with that is September is also MOT month.

25 is the magic number when it comes to insurance.
I'd wait 'til September. If you've got an claim that comes off in September, your premium will go down.
But I can't say by how much.

Annoyingly I've got an SP30 that comes off in July, my renewal is next month, balls.
I've got a claim, but that's not gonna come off until December 2015 :( Double balls.

My policy ends in six weeks so I'll have to sort it out anyway but come September I can always look elsewhere. Chances are that the insurer incumbent will drop their premium and refund the difference to compete when I call to cancel.

When I moved home last month the premium jumped from £760 to over a grand.

It's not a Z3 M Roadster is it? Those are Z3s but with performance engines. Really high insurance groups for those cars.

No just a standard. Mind me asking what you pay for yours (insurance)?

Sure £650. It's a 2002 model 316i (4 door saloon).

The Autotrader website has an insurance guesstimater thingy where you input age, gender and NCD and it'll work out guesstimated insurance cost for each car in the search results.
