  1. You need to have a good idea of how you use your car if you do lots of short trips or low miles stay away from a diesel you will get diesel pariculate filter issues. I would personally avoid hybrids especially if you intend to do any maintenance your self or use a local mechanic as the the voltage in the hybrid system is deadly and should only be worked on by specially qualified techs ie main dealers . Buy your car near to the end of the month as most salesman are targeted so keener to do discounts at the end of the month to meet their targets. You MUST try and haggle never pay the window price there is always wiggle room for the seller Good luck

  4. SR-71 Blackbird, Blue ?

    Hi Next up for me is a 1/72 SR-71A Blackbird my problem (among many ) is finding a colour to finish it in I have read it was painted a very dark blue but when I search for pictures depending on light and angles etc it can look anything from Matt black to almost silver I was thinking of using Tamiya rubber black XF-85 but might be to dark ? Any thoughts or (polite) suggestions welcome
