    I own a Subaru Forester that I leave with a friend near Inverness and which I use as a fishing wagon for 2 or 3 weeks a year. The original idea was that he would tax, MOT and insure it and have it as a second vehicle for a fishing guide that he planned to employ, but this didn't work out. I am...

    Ladies & Gentlemen I'm looking at getting a 2012-2015 Ford Galaxy Mk3 as a practical option for 3 car seats and associated friends / camping equipment, baggage etc. I'd like to spend somewhere around 10k and I'd anticipate keeping the car for probably 5 years, doing somewhere around 15000...

    Up graded my A6 Allroad to an XC90 4 weeks ago today. Lovely thing, private sale, impeccable history, file of receipts like the New Testament, spec as I wanted, metallic grey with full cream leather and wood. Just lovely.... ....or it was:( Now totally trashed by the half witted council bin...

    I always store my tackle in the conventional boot of my car, on the basis it's even more secure than in the house or the shed. The car has a factory fitted alarm, an excellent deadlock system and double glazing. It's as impenetrable as any vehicle could be. No tackle is ever left on display Went...

    Hi all, Think I might get a set of rod holders for my car, any opinions on the best choice? Last thing I want is my rods to come pinging off between beats, also I dont want to mark the paint work on my car. Scott

    I bought a new car 4 weeks ago (well new to me) one previous owner and in immaculate condition. I have spent the last three weeks putting my own stamp on it like a dual front and rear dash-cam and two whole days applying a diamond polish to the bodywork. On Wednesday I was in town and made three...

    Dear all, Not quite Salmon, I know, but quite close. My in-laws live in Germany and so I go over there most Christmases with the family. As they live more or less on the Austrian border, a lot of central Europe is pretty close by car. This year, I'm assured that I can go fishing for a couple...

    I will probably get shot down for this post . But paying £20 to enter and paying to park !!!! . Now basically you are paying to go shopping it's high time they realised that the stand holders money should be enough to run the show . And the car park is pure greed !!!!

    Looking for a top section for my Hardy Marksman 2, 15ft, 10#. While winding in yesterday to head back to the car for a cup of tea, I heard a pinging type of noise, I wasn’t sure at first what had happened, anyway the the tip of the rod had broken off just below the 5th eye, it is as if it had...

    Some good news although not a total ban. EU agrees total ban on bee-harming pesticides | Environment | The Guardian I'm looking forward to having to regularly clean my windscreen and clean flies from the front of my car. I used to spend too much time every summer cleaning flies from the front...

    Over the past 20 years I've been through a fair few 4x4 vehicles including all the usual suspects and I was wondering what folks favour as their fishing truck of choice. For me the Subaru Forester XT meets all my needs, I cant see me changing it anytime soon unless the Land Rover Defender...

    I'm looking for a good box/crate to transport my springer spaniel and jack russell in the car (SUV). I've noticed a big discrepancy in prices. I can buy a TransK9 box for over £500 (more than the dogs cost) or a VidaXL box for about £70. Is the K9 box eight times better? Also there are other...

    Not sure if anybody on the forum has been through the same process or is in the trade: If you enter details into the internet car discounters (such as CAR WOW), you seem to be able to get RRP discounts of between zero and 12%. Some models have between £2000 - £4000 deducted when a diesel model...

    My car has approx 130,000 miles on the clock (mostly motorway miles, approx 400+ per week) Last week I got an amber light and engine malfunction - which was down to a DPF warning. I managed to drive home in limp mode, but every so often got full power. Took it to the garage and they reset the...

    All, Looking to make a safe area for my dog in the boot of my car. I fish twice/ three times a week so the rods etc are permanently in the car. I think this kind of thing would be useful as she can have a break from fishing too and I could leave the boot open to allow her plenty fresh air...

    Hi everyone, Just a quick heads up to be careful with your fishing gear as I've had a Hardy Zenith and 9000CLS reel stolen from my car while out on the river Tay, completely gutted to lose my rod and reels but as I had left my car unlocked which I have done for 15years unable to claim my...
