I mean we aren't all bad drivers who actively crash into things...I'm waiting for my no claims to kick in properly.
we just chucked the old engine, my new one should be fine

Considering the prices, I think you've done pretty well for yourself
the reg, as is said above, L is 1994 aprox, R/S was like 1998, etc etc
we now have a system of 0x for the year
for example, the other car i drive is an 03 plate
(put the star in so no1 can use it :P)
which means YL means yorkshire, leeds, and 03 means the year, 2003
the last three letters are just random
before, it was Xxxx XXX
where X was a letter, that gave the rough year of the car
xxx was three random numbers
and XXX was three random letters
but for some reason i only have two numbers, but i dont mind
