    Hi

    Hello everyone.
    Im a new member. Just got a 7 seater 2004 Touran with 40,000 miles on the clock. Cost me 500. The only other owner never used it, so its been sitting on his drive for 4 years and has only done 49 (forty nine) miles in that time.
    It has things wrong with it, but its a good family car (an upgrade from my previous 5 seat money pit).
    Im going to spend a bit of time and money doing some improvements to it, so Id like a few recommendations of where to get good quality aftermarket stuff like suspension etc.
    I am getting all the filters changed at a garage on Tuesday, after that Ill do them myself (only getting it done because I want it given a thorough going over to hopefully preempt any issues from the lack of use.

    Anyway, I love me a good forum, so I hope yall are friendly and helpful 😂😁🤙🏼

    Peace

    Tom

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
