Yesterday at 07:16 PM Car Service by Finney

Looking for a decent garage to do a service on my diesel astra, not too expensive, but good..
Found a garage on the Durley Drive estate on groupon, Benley Automotive, and they are offering a service for a discounted price of £49 (65% off) but only found 2 reviews about the garage and level of service and neither are very good.
Has anyone used this garage and could give any positive feedback on it????

22nd Apr 2014 10:02pm Wallasey Road picture request by Wal79

I wonder if anyone could point me in the direction of some pics of Wallasey Road, in particular the shops from Marlowe Road heading up the hill towards St Hilary's Church.

My dad used to own a greengrocers at number 169 Wallasey Road in the 80's, my grandfather owned the Post Office in the late 70's and my dad had another greengrocers next door but one to the Post Office and I was born there in 79.

I have done countless searches and have only found a picture of the Post Office.

Many thanks

22nd Apr 2014 8:44pm Sky Box + HD : Hard Drive Swap & Copy programs by emelec

Didn't want to hijack another thread about this so started a new one.

Question I've got about Sky+ box (HD) - Its in need of replacing as it freezes every so often and then takes an age to reset sometimes upto 20minutes.

Problem I have is the programs I've recorded on Sky+ need to be kept as daughter has a few issues and will often have a "meltdown" if she cant watch a program etc (she's not a brat, but I do wish that was just the case frown )...

Can this be done? Can the hard drives be taken out and swapped?

22nd Apr 2014 8:59am 'Brake' calls for complete ban on phone use. by j_demo


The charity Brake has called for a complete ban on all phone use in cars INCLUDING bluetooth devices saying that they are as much of a distraction. Personally I disagree because I have an 'io Play 2' in my car and it's so easy to use and is all wired in to the speakers etc professionally so the call quality is crisp, it's almost like talking to someone else in the passenger or back seats. And because of this, do Brake want a complete ban on all communication in cars??? As talking to a passenger or even singing along to the radio is akin to talking on a bluetooth headset.

I disagree with what they want, yes I concur holding a phone to your ear IS dangerous and is rightly illegal, a bluetooth car kit like I have is perfectly safe and should continue to be legal. The bluetooth headsets I can't comment on as I've never used one.

What does everyone else think???

21st Apr 2014 6:54pm How Much?? by Pete1507

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone would be able to tell me how much my car is worth.

Its a 2004 VW Polo Twist 3door, 102k. Alloys, electric windows the usual spec.

There is no service history unfortunately,but I might be able to dig out some paper work for work carried out about 12-18 months a go (was posted on here around that time)

Tax runs out at the end of April and MOT in May (I think?).

its currently not running as I have left it due to not needing it. It was last run/engine turned over in February when we had that big chill. It had to be jumped but seemed fine when on idle.

Now as I say, at the moment its not running and hasn't been for a few months, but I'd like to know what you would feel a reasonable price for it would be in its current condition.
I'm looking to sell as is and hopefully someone out there will be able to give it a good once over and have a decent little runaround for themselves.

21st Apr 2014 10:53am Wirral Coastal Walk for Muscular Dystrophy by Willo_

GLOBE readers are being invited to sign up for this year's Wirral Coastal Walk in aid of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.

Organised by Rotary Club of North Wirral, the event takes place on Sunday May 11.

The 15-mile journey starts at Seacombe Ferry Terminal and finishes at Thurstaston Country Park, although walkers have the option of completing their journey after four or ten miles.

Funds raised will help Muscular Dystrophy Campaign in its work funding ground breaking research into treatments for muscular dystrophy and related conditions and supporting the 70,000 families in the UK affected by them – 8,000 of them from the North West of England.

Charles Horton, the charity's North West volunteer fundraising manager, said: "By signing up for this event, showing us your support and enjoying a great day out with family or friends, you could help us to save lives."

Walkers are asked to raise £100 sponsorship for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and will receive fundraising support and a t-shirt to sport on the day.

If you are interested in taking part
call 01244 536551 for an entry form and sponsorship pack.

19th Apr 2014 9:07am Terraclean by Willo_

After watching this episode of wheeler dealers

I thought I would give it a try, to see if I could get better MPG, I was sceptical and thought it was a load of rubbish.

Am a fast food delivery driver so I put in a lot of miles on short stop & start journeys, I have never had more than 38.9 mpg doing the deliveries, however on motorway I can probably get it up to a max of 42.9.

After seeing the episode of wheeler dealers with the clip in vid above, I thought it's worth a try.

So after spending a good few hours reading up about it online, and failing to find more than a couple of bad reviews, but thousands singing it's praises, I took the plunge.

I contacted the local dealer for terraclean
Andy on 07704028449 website

He came to my house set up the system and let it get to work, the whole process took just over 1 hour.

Doing deliveries I normally get no more than 38.9 mpg, last night I got this
it was up and down by no more than 3mpg either way.
Now, that is a good a reason to get it done, IT DOES WORK.

Not sure if this has been done before but just wondering why Cross Hill, Thingwall, is so called.. Could there be a burial ground under the hump ?
The name would indicate something to do with Christianity.

17th Apr 2014 2:05pm The man who eats roadkill by _Ste_

Interesting documentary on a norfolk man who eats what he finds dead on the uk roads.

Even if it has gone off and has green meat and stinks he still eats it.

Nice chap, he also says there is no god, he used to be a religious preacher years ago but turned the tables after asking a question.

Interesting chap.

Enjoy smile
