Renault Megane 1.6 16v VVT Hatchback 10/06/2011

If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it!

Renault Megane 1.6 16v VVT Hatchback Every year for the last three years I've told everyone who will listen that I'm getting rid of my car. Every MOT I say this will be the last. And yet I still have this car. Why? The simple answer is that there's nothing wrong with it.  Nothing to justify getting a loan and upgrading. Yes it's ugly, yes it's got an image problem, but it gets me from a to b, never breaks down, and gives me an mpg of over 40 , which for an 11 year old petrol automatic is amazing! The plus points are firstly the engine. This is a 1.6 16v engine, and it's superb. It's very responsive, gives power when you need it, yet is so quiet at low speeds you have to check if it's switched on! All that and with a brilliant 40+mpg. I can't say enough about how good this engine is, its really is a belter.  Unfortunately the rest of the car is not so good. The interior whilst comfortable is very average. The look of the car is very dull and uninspiring (mine's the saloon version). The kids have even christened it 'old man car' because it looks like an old man should drive it - not good for the man points! The boot space is quite good, and mine came with a really good CD changer too. It's also got all the mod cons such as air con, electric mirrors, and a sunroof, which all work really well.  The worst thing about this car though is the suspension.  The settings are way too soft and there's so much body roll that you can't get a decent feel through the steering. It's such a shame as the engine is so lively that ...

Pantene Pro V Normal Hair Shampoo 18/10/2001

Buy this if you don't know what you're doing

Pantene Pro V Normal Hair Shampoo It’s easy when you’re a teenager – you just walk up to the shelf and pick up the one labeled greasy. Adulthood presents more difficulties though. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what type of hair I have. So I’m stood there, looking at the shampoo section of my local Superdrug, and there must be at least fifty different varieties of shampoo, conditioner, ‘2 in 1’s, all staring back at me. All I know is that I wash it every morning and as long as it doesn’t fall out, then I’m happy. So why the need for so many different products? Do I need extra shine and extra hold? Do I need to volumise? And what the hell is ‘hot oil’, and why is it so damn expensive? I know I haven’t got dandruff, so that rules some out. I haven’t got a perm and I don’t dye my hair, so that’s some more gone. Common sense tells me that cheap usually means nasty, and I can’t justify paying extra for Nicky Clarke and Trevor Sorbie (whoever they are) seeing as I don’t really know what I’m doing. So that leaves me with a choice of about five, middle of the road, inexpensive shampoos – Fructis, Pantene, VO5, Organics, etc. The only reason I choose Pantene pro-V is because it’s got vitamins in it, and apparently they are good for you. I did use Fructis for a while (they changed the packaging on Pantene and it took me a while to realize), and to be fair it’s no better or no worse ...
