    Well, i have encountered a proble with my car and i need to pick a few brains but first off i had better introduce myself.

    I have always meen mad about cars ever since the day i passed my test. I wouldnt say im old (just turned 30) but
    My mates have always taken the michael about the amount of cars ive had.

    It all started when i was 17 years old and i bought a pug 106 xsi, that thing really was a pocket rocket.
    I then did the whole uni thing and came out the other side with a degree but i was skint! Feeling sorry for me, my dads friend (she was 75 at the time) gave me a fiat 127 in ......METALLIC GOLD! But hey it got me rolling again.
    When i saved up some cash i decided to buy a toyota MR2 MK1 and that was a wicked little car. Roof leaked like a sieve tho. I then chopped that in for an Alfa 147, then a fiat coupe 16v turbo with countless problems, then a fiat 20v turbo (which was my first propper fast car) i then got a bit more sensible and got an alfa 156 2.5 v6 ( i think). I then had saved a bit more money and bought a renault sport megane 225, now thats a pokey little blighter! Then i thought it would be a good idea to get....A V8, so i bought a MG ZT 260 with the mustang engine, lovely sound and only 27k miles on the clock. Had that for a year and chopped it in for a lotus elise 111s, then my wife had a baby and so the lotus made way for a Jag S Type R which was AMAZING! Nipper number 2 is on the way so jag is chopped in for what i have today (and plan to keep for a bit) an X5 E53. I will update this thread with the issue im having, but right now its time for bed. So hello and good night

    Sorry to hear your having ABS issues, thats something I know little about!
    Yeah I ment in relation to growing families! Prior to our bundle of joy coming along I had a nice Mazda RX8, totally impractical for a family!!
