Right you thick Irish tw** - this is the LAST time I will lower myself to answer your pathetic - childish remarks. Quote by Codprawn


This is the sort of ANTI Irish and Racist remarks, Codds is renowned for and is evident in previous posts which he has a go at the Irish, Tony Blair , Authority etc etc

As I said before I like the cool look of the Defender,

Bogib has some excellent examples in his part of the world, as his photos will atest.
But I will not tolerate people coming on here singing the praises of Landrover this, Landrover that, great British engineering etc etc ,


It simply isnt true, Landrover dont build reliable 4x4s
personal experience has shown me this, I have posted lots of links, some from the Landrover Club itself,!!

Covering all manner of failures, how to convert your timing belt setup to gear driven, where to loctite the bolt holding the oil pump sproket on, because Landrover couldnt be bothered, forget the rusting, the corrosion, the flawed td5 motor , and the serious mechanical failures, these 4x4s are fraught with problems

Codprawn just doesnt like me telling everyone,
I mean how can you have faith in a vehicle, when everyone else builds replacement bits for them, does this not tell you something, if there is such a need to stock so much spares.

Gavin, when should I start to experience these problems current Disco has 96k and the previous one 150K. Then there was my 110 v8 with 124k. I do remember the battery going flat when first Disco wasn't run for 2 months, oh and I had a puncture once too.

Codprawn is taking some flak at the moment over his rib so warrants a little forgiveness, but he shouldn't have played the race card. Hey we might all meet up one day

Some of my best friends are Land Rover aholics and it doesnīt matter how much problem they are having with their Landies they get stronger in their believing that Landies are THE 4x4īs and what me concerned I respect their believings.

Racism is all a load of crap - people can and DO call me Taffy - Welsh tw@* whatever they like - it is PERSONAL insults that hurt - for example picking on someone who is disabled or too short or too tall or whatever.

And if a welshman can't slag off an Irishman what IS the world coming to????

I have friends from all walks of life some are black - some are white - what the hell does it matter??? My black friends are all stunned by all this political correctness going around - how people aren't allowed to say BLACKboard any more etc.

Don't people realise that it is treating people differently that is the problem??? For example to allow black people into the Police with less qualifications than white people is derogatory in the extreme - it is basically saying that black people aren't as clever as white people.

Codprawn, for gods sake chill out, smoke some dope or something, or you are never going to get to see that great rib in the water.

Hope not, I love my Disco. The secret is, oil changes every 5k, major service every 24k, drive it sensibly with machanical sympathy, its not a hot hatch and try not to use cheap supermarket diesel all the time.

Codders, you have told us on several occasions that you are NOT Welsh and intimated you originate from outside the UK, spent your youth on the Red Sea and various other far flung outposts of civilisation and, for all I know, was the product of immaculate conception and raised in the Kruger national park by a troop of baboons. You certainly don't appear to possess the social interaction skills and warm, open personality of the folk of South Wales, that's for bloody sure

And in anticipation of your inevitable repost 'Why don't you read my post, you'll see that I'm NOT claiming to be a Welshman', I think you'll find that's exactly what you're implying.
