I got sick of the motorcycle theives in E. Manchester. So I've now bought myself and the rotty a nice sensible astra 1.7 turbo. My bike insurance was £130 fully comp for 125bhp--160mph bike. The car --JESUS! £560 fully comp with the extras and over 12 payments neARLY £700. I'm told that that is cheap for someone with no no-claims bonus. Don't have much money so I hope I've made a good move! Anyway--the car is lovely, new brakes, tyres service 11mths mot etc air conditioned. It's a 99 model in vgc--99,000m and looks and runs like new. First ever deisel car. What important thaings do I need to know in order to avoid trouble? Can't seem to get mileometer to 'light up' and why does it have a pull-out nob next to it. Thankyou folks!--Nice to 'meet'!--Chris.
