This thread is a bit depressing for me as I've been taken off the road due to being diagnosed with epilepsy. I have to be a year seizure-free and signed off by a neurologist to drive now. I think I have until the end of March before I can get behind the wheel. We got a new car (Skoda Superb estate) and while it's lovely to be driven around in, I really miss the freedom of being able to drive.
sorry to hear this. driving is a necessity for me and, thankfully, still mostly enjoyable. yr a prime candidate for a self-drive car - are they looking for guinea-pigs? (lemmings?)

I took my little girl into Zaytoon earlier for what has now become a father daughter kebab ritual..and if that wasn't enough to make a man almost burst with pride...when I was driving up Fishamble Street looking for parking,as we passed by a handicapper spot she reminded me that we were in my folks Skoda,with a big dirty disabled sticker in the window!

The kid is fucking gifted.

Same here. Due tomorrow. Going to call them in a while and set up a payment plan. No way I can afford to pay it in one go.

Lots of strange new noises and shudders in the Nailer mobile these days.
I'm getting anxious to change it.
I fear I won't mange to change it before something catastrophic happens, and then I'll be really fucked.

My window fixed itself, but there's a bit of a mechanical squeaky noise when I'm driving about. I'm waiting for the suspension to break and die.

Met my neighbour last with the bonnet on his new car up. He's got the NCT today but all the dashboard lights were lit up and wouldn't turn off even without the key in the ignition.

We ended up trying to disconnect the negative on the battery cable so he could stop it sucking power all night. Nut was jammed on like buggery. Snapped my crappy maplins socket set trying to loosen it.

Right pair of chumps.

Happened a friend of mine last year.

He was off for 6 months - but no seizures since and is back driving gain now.

My offer of a ligft to work was politely ignored for some reason (ie my chronic lateness)
