    ..auf wiedersehen, goodbye.

    Sadly the time has come where the end of my tether has been reached and I've switched allegiances.
    I would like to extend my thanks to all of you for your help, and perhaps more importantly your wit, over the last few years. Unfortunately my bank balance has failed to keep up with my P38's up keep.
    As soon as those 6 numbers pop up I'll be back.
    Until then, adieu.

    You will always remember a Landy. The good times and the bad. See you sooner rather than later

    Either it's a V8 or you are unlucky, my P38 diesel has cost the best part of beggar all to run for the last 10 years.

    And you told me I’d never do it on a shoestring budget :rolleyes:

    OP - you don’t need to ‘own’ a Landy to help other people fix theirs or have a laugh?
    Don’t forget your password just yet ;)

    See you later

    I am sure you can run a P38 on a shoe string, as long as you repair faults early and can do most of your own labour. My biggest expense on my P38 is labour on big jobs I knew I wouldn't get round to doing myself.

    Doozle yes but chancy.
    Was different when I first had it early was not an option.
    been rolled over, wouldn’t start, when it did would cut out without warning, battery lasted 2days from full, Wasn’t interested in fixing EAS, had no MOT standing for years, water pump blew and was intended as daily driver.
    Mechanic whom owned it was going to break it as not worth fixing.

    Im not a mechanic, had no idea how they worked I just fell in love and wouldn’t give up.
    couldn’t of done it without help from here.

    Sadly the damn things get into your blood.
    I'd be surprised if you've gone for good ;)
    Mind you I've never strayed beyond a Classic, keep it simple (KISS) I say.
