    My watch has been buried in the sands of the sahara, and bathed in the sandy beaches of portugal, and soaked the humidity of Hong Kong. and gambled at the casinos of Macau and to a certain part of Amsterdam for some hanky panky. and it still looks new. and thats why i love it.

    If you can't fix it, I think someone on TPU in the US wanted one (I think he wanted the cooler off it?).

    Meh, I just had to repossess a couple of proper gammy rickety vans in Wolverhampton. I feel dirty :laugh:
    Tatty, I'll be getting in touch some point soon with a list of cars for you to look at. Coincidentally, he recently sold an 07 plate 1.9 Golf TDi (40k, 1 woman owner, FSH) for £5,000 because every single panel on the body was smashed...
