Been using my sons R50 Mini One whilst the two Elgrands are off the road and now the gearbox is broke!!!!! Midland gearbox was apparently designed with a maximum of only taking 55bhp, my sons is more like 130bhp!! Two options rebuild the sh*t gearbox for 600 euros or fit a later 6 speed gearbox with flywheel and new clutch and drive shafts for 1600!!! WTF!!!

Ah the oft-busted chocolate gearbox. Commiserations.

Mate had an R50, bought for buttons with a noisy box. He ended up fitting a 6 speed kit, not too difficult but quite expensive. Much nicer afterwards.

Shame it's not yours though, are you obliged to fix it?

I sold a MK4 golf on eBay years ago for 5.5k it was mint. Guy comes up from Brum and wastes my afternoon test driving and tyre kicking. He offered me 3k and said that's all it's worth. I told him bye bye off you go then. He got a bit lairy and said that's all he's got!
2 mins later he knocks on the front door and asked for a ride to the train station!
I told him it's 2 miles down the hill and very calmly closed the door.
Never ever sell cars on eBay. EVER.

( Put on auto trader and sold to someone local for full price in the end)

Put our Volvo on autotrader and had rogue traders of a specific origin calling me every day with offers of half its price.." that's all its worth, bro...."
First off, I ain't your bro.
Second, if that's all its worth, why is every other of the similar spec etc no more than £600 either side of mine?
Cheeky swines angling to make a super fast, super fat payday.

Today's WTF.... Landscapers finally rocked up at 10am.... And are now blasting out some Scouse minister sermon, talking about God and Jesus.

WTF has Graeme Souness been eating ?
68 years old - he doesn’t look a day older than 40.
Next time he speaks on the England commentary I’m putting my sunglasses by on - Colgate will be on the phone.
