Love it when I'm viewing a car, and if it happens to be a dealer and if I mention I belong to a forum they literally stop talking give you the keys and say let me know when your done.

always makes me laugh cause I like a chat with them but soon as they think "bah he knows everything to look for now" they can't be arsed into trying to talk you into it they know you'll either want it or not.

Kinda handy

on the contrary...forewarned is forearmed. Find it better to know the common problems to expect and more so the solutions.

How many diesels have been saved in the knowledge of swirlflaps? Knowledge is power in some instances :thumbsup but yeah i can see why some people would get paranoid. Don't forget though you rarely get people log into the tech section and start a my car is running 100% thread

No not paranoid, but then I'm not the kind of person that worries much and am lucky enough to understand all things mechanical with a little research.
Have a much better understand of my car thanks to this fourm than if I hadn't found it:)

No, my paranoia makes me paranoid.

Paranoia is total awareness.



Anyway, if your view of life is based on sitting in a doctors waiting room I'm sure you would come to suspect you may have a lot of symptoms, maybe better to join a flower arranging forum?

Swap swirl flap paranoia for green fly paranoia.

just because your paranoid dunt mean it wont go wrong!!!!:rofl:rofl

But if you expect it and it does you are not shocked.

Everyday it doesn't is a good day.


Pessimism is the ultimate optimism. No dissapointments and everything either meets or exceeds expectations.
