    I've often wondered about that but also wonder about the ethics of prearranging bids. Ok it's not quite that but you know what I mean.

    It's is just a case of saying "I will be bidding up to £125" and someone else saying "I'll go to £150".
    The lower bidder knows they will be out bid so doesn't bid at all, the higher bidder may well get it for much less.

    Also if members mention on the forum that they have an item on ebay they may sell through the forum and save on fees.

    Sound ok to me.

    Always happy to reduce the cost of motoring.

    My problem with ebay is I don't like losing so I'll always wait till the last 5 seconds then drop a moster bid usually around double what I think it's worth . That way I no im go into win and that no one has time to re enter another bid before it ends.

    So yes I am one of them fuckers we all hate but I was sick of loosing out by 1 pound in the dying seconds so to beat them join them

    And believe it or not I've not once over paid for an item doin this!!

    As for tellin each other who's bidding on what , that would be a good idea so if you see summet on eBay post up the link and then other people can say yes I'm bidding on that and my max is £?? That way the folks on this site would be looking after each other .

    So yea good idea me thinks

    Had a break from the rain this afternoon so did a few bits

    Firstly I adjusted the switch like throttle and now I'm kicking myself I didn't do it sooner at first I thought I was having trouble with the clutch bite being to high but after reading a few posts on this forum and others I found the cause to be a very loosely adjusted throttle cable and even better it's simple fix that doesn't cost a dime!! From the picture you can see how much I've had to adjust the screw (lighter rust colour on the thread )

    Then decided to change the footwell lights and rear view mirror map lights to the multi blue led ones that arrived the other day looks pretty good and there actually brighter than the stock yellow bulbs

    In the day light with camera flash

    And when it went dark out ... Looks better in the flesh as they illuminate the hole cabin blue but anyway you get the idea

    Hopefully the dash board blue LEDs arrive tomorrow so can get rid of that wank yellow glow and have some more nice blue dials!!

    More to follow tomorrow as I go about changing brakes , bleeding cooling system and hopefully blue dash !!

    Yep, I was bidding as well, think we all forced the price up, my limit was around £123, think I will leave it for a few months and see if anything is around in Feb, or fit a standard one. Would love a s/s one, but other work also needed over the winter

    That's it, the usual boring middle aged man things.

    glad I had today off work apparently all the roads where blocked up round here by half 6 cuz of all the losers agueing overs tvs that are ten quid cheaper than normal!! Just took me an hour to do a ten mile round trip to the motor factors and back to pick up my discs and pads!!
    I wished they would stop all this yank shit and keep it over the pond with douche bags!!

    On the plus side I got my discs and pads at a steal .. no thanks to black friday but because the manager of the motor factors is an old friend and put it through as a trade deal. So I got ferodo pads and mintex discs for a nats bollock under 40 quid ...regular price 60 quid so well happy with that

    I have now phoned MANN and they says it is the right filter also
    So at a loose to know why it will not fit. Did rover/mg change the fuel line connections on the 2003-2004 model?

    If you are quick you don't lose much coolant (a few ml) so it can be at any point when the engine cover is off.
