    let me know if any good deals come in, I could do with a runaround upto about £8000, putting far too much mileage on the Jag.

    Will do, I'm unsure how it all works at the moment, but my mate (who got me the job) gave me the impression that some back-hand deals do happen. He said they time it right, so they get back to the depot just after it closes, so that they're forced to keep the car overnight :D
    What you looking for, a diesel estate or something similar?

    See if you can get a nice diesel for that, engines are and injectors are much quieter the past 10 years or so, not really noticeable from within the car cept when idling.

    Consumption is amazing as well see my friends do epic journeys for 10ers worth :laugh:

    Ive always worn Casio watches since i was old enough to have one on my wrist. no idea why. I do have my eye on a very nice £329+ Breitling but IMO thats way over the top for something that just tells the time -- i didnt even need to pay £120 for the watch I got now, I coulda just went around the street randomly asking people what time it is.

    My current watch

    [​IMG]

    I wanted something in black but black steel watches dont seem to be as popular here as they are in hong kong.

    My Previous watch:

    [​IMG]

    It was a gift from either one of my aunts or my dad coming back from a trip to Hong Kong.
    This watch is MASSIVE. it was so big it couldnt slip under my cuff at work. so i always my right cuff undone. but we were always wearing a jacket anyway so it wasnt that obvious that i had that cuff undone. Anyway, my new manager didnt like it, filed for disiplinary which i refused to sign under the grounds that his reason was full of as much shit as he was. a few weeks later i was hauled before the company director who wrote off all the complaints and gave me 2 weeks pay because I had been suspended from active duty for that amount of time. all because of one undone cuff.

    I understand the reason behind it was to look professional. but its not as if all the bloody staff at the place i was on duty at walked around inspecting every member of the security team to make sure their cuff was done up.

    I had just moved into a 5days a week slot (12hr shifts --ugh) I didnt have time to do my own stuff. first day off i was just sleeping for the whole day 2nd day i was just mulling around relaxing at home, and before you know it. its back to work already.
    ----

    I also split with my GF of 3years while i had this watch. this watch is cursed. My dad wanted a new watch so i gave it to him. he went to get the battery replaced and it cost him £30 for the same battery you put in your motherboard. I had the battery replaced in it before for £5.

    so yeah. the watch is cursed and i wont be wearing it. If my dad didnt want it i would have cycled out to the Thames and deep sixed that motherf**ker.

    I think it's interesting how people's methods for keeping time have gone from this:
