View Full Version : sorry chester
i set yer car alarm off yesterday at the rolling road day,
nothing dodgy honest,just looked through the back window to see if there was any more leg room in the cordy,and WHAM it starts screeming and whiring and bleeping and stuff,i just stoofd their waiting fot the owner to come back and give me some stick.
so if yer alarm registers its alarms it was a nosey bloke with his nose against yer rear window,SORRY:redface:
I am surprized that leg room is an issue with you jase, even that child seat in the back of urs looks a little generous for you :D
I'll get me coat..............

Hey, cool it! Don't want Claire getting broody on me. She reads these threads sometimes!
I wondered why the alarm had been going off, but I've had a few false ones of late, so it's the casual look around like and then dismiss it. I bet your heart was pounding! That's two 125 db sirens under the bonnet, the second being a 6 tone generator. Clifford 'weird' Concept, but at least you can hear it, as long as you're not write next to a rolling road. :)
Anyhow, no problem 'aving a look mate. If anything I'm flattered. Should have grabbed me for a closer look. I'll be honest, I've been thinking about changing her for a Leon Cupra and had a test drive of an 'X' plate 20VT Saturday.
I was really impressed with the handling and the power for a standard 1.8 turbo. I was chucking it about a bit, frightening the sales guy, but I had fun!
Away from that, playing bass guitar means I need something fairly practical. The Cordoba already limits me for speaker cab sizes. I couldn't fit my 4X10 in the Leon's boot, and it would be too much of a struggle putting it on the back seat. I also can't drop down the seats for extra room because there's other kit that would need to go in the boot and back seat that shouldn't move around too much. Unfortunately, this means that a Leon is out of the question for me :(
But... They also had a W2000 plate Toledo 2.3 V5. Very nice car, and this one was fully loaded. But you should have seen the state of it, tatty as hell with scrapes and scuffs inside and out, everywhere! 64'000 miles for a 3 year old is bit too high for as well, and they still wanted 9 grand for it! The thing is, it definitely would be plenty big enough for my rig, and it looked dead smart. So maybe a tinkered TDi Toledo with some extra added toys would be nice. I've got the bike for going quick don't forget!
I've got to be realistic. Stoneacre wanted to give me 2 3/4 for mine. They can go and get stuffed! The Cordy's a great car and it's still serving me well. The suspension is going off now, but I could spend a few hundred quid on upgrading it, and I reckon for practicality and smiles per pound, I'm much better off keeping the Cordoba. :D
Besides, I've still got the NOS in mind! Mmmm...
Anyways Jase, if you want any measurement, pics, anything about Cordy, just give me a shout. It's a much under-rated car, a formula that is right on the button.
cheers chester,wanna get my insurance claim for flooded kitchen sorted first ,then i start looking properly for a cordie,if me claim doesn't get sorted i am up sh1t creek and keeping the ibiza :(
OK mate, well good luck and let us know how ya get on.
