It's nothing special looks wise, identical to this:



originally I wanted one of the Blackline Skoda Octavia estates but after testing this, which is like shit off a shovel, the practicality of the boot as well as it being about the most comfortable car seat I've ever sat in made it no contest. I tried a Golf too but they're so inflated on price because of the badge is hard to get a decent deal.

Looks very like a very practical A to B car :up:

Are you planning to chip it?

By the way, I'm a bit surprised you guys rarely post pics of your actual car. It's not that hard to go snap a pic with your phone, no?

Yes, especially true for the younger ones with caps on backwards.

Cool, looks like a fun trip. Wish we had warmer weather over here, I was out on my bike the other day in just below freezing temperature. Still had fun.

I have bought Dyson vacs for years, ever since the first model and only the canister ones.

Henry's are the best >:(


I knocked mine down the stairs a few months ago. He hit just about every step on the way and was still running at the bottom. He's picked up tonnes of building rubble and plaster dust and still soldiers on. Good luck with that, overpriced Dyson!

You just need to change the filters in them and check the brush, then they are good to go again.

I don't know if I have told the story where one day I was in our car park basement and about to vacuum the car after a wash and my #2 Dyson blew up. My #1 ended up at the tip/dump months before. They Dyson didn't explode but emitted so much thick smoke I couldn't find my car, the motor still doing thousands of revs and screaming... I didn't panic but managed to disconnect the power lead after groping about for it on the floor.

Now being an apartment complex basement, I thought shit, smoke alarms!!! Moments later I heard the first sounds on the alarms being triggered... I opened the garage roller door and the smoke cloud dissipated slowly. I then ventured outside to the footpath to wait for the fire brigade to arrive and they did minutes later :smirk:

I am now on Dyson #3 now and have a cheap vac for the car.

You'd think you might try another brand after 2 were pieces of shit?

We had a dryer go nuts the other night. Started grinding, then we shut it off and the heating element was like 'naaahhh lets just go full tilt and catch fire". That was pretty fun.

Hey thanks for the video PhoeniX. I like his style. I saw another of his; was it the Dyson (expensive) hair dryer. Yes and here it is :)

IMO, they are not pieces of shit for my money. The original was purchased way back in mid 1990's, the DC02 model. I have always been one to buy early any new technology :smirk:

I forget why it died but only got rid of it in the last 2 or 3 years. I inherited the next model, the purple & yellow hepa filter one. My Dad was going to chuck it in the bin and I said I'd have for parts back around 2005. I took it to the Dyson repair shop and it was a simple rubber seal replacement costing about $15. So I now (then) had two Dyson's.

My third and current (only) is maybe 10 years old. I walked into the electrical retailer one day and they were having a half price Dyson sale. I couldn't leave without one :D

TL;DR I have owned 3 and yes, I'd buy again.
