    Any tips on filling old wood worm/boring bug tracks. Sanded back a few steps going down into our kitchen and they’d been filled but the filler came out.

    Filler always looks too pale so wondering what else I could use. Thanks!

    Nice thanks. On point (4) initially I feel like it wouldn't bother me but then I get the impression with EVs so much is linked to the software/general UX with the touchscreen/nav etc that maybe it would get annoying.

    What, if anything would you say Tesla need to improve on your Model 3?

    I do like the look of the VW id3. Anyone heard pros/cons on it so far?

    I would be bang into a Tesla but its bigger in length and width than my 3 series, which won't do it for encouraging my wife to drive a little more (which she wants to do but hates big cars).

    Starting to think about a new car and would ideally go for an EV. I really don't know much about them other than what I like the look of (visually).

    Live in Scotland, hoping to be 100% remote for work going forward so trips are shortish family trips on weekends and then the odd long haul to my folks in Dorset or family in Wales.

    I have a 3 series at the moment which my wife won't drive due to feeling its too big so it needs to be smaller. I would like something fun/quick-ish but sensible at the same time (same of my 3 series estate).

    Not looked at finance/leases etc or whatever yet, keen to just think about cars to focus in on first.

    Any suggestions?

    New kitchen, new flooring, one less bedroom in new listing, looks like it's been redecorated throughout. I think it just shows that you can make serious gains (if it sells for asking and thats your thing) by spending a bit of time tidying a place up, getting good photos taken.

    The new listing looks like a lovely house from the photos, the old listing looks like its a place that needs a serious facelift that would put a lot of people off.

    Were you not thinking/talking of moving to Edinburgh a week ago?

    I would be very surprised if you can get anything with off street parking for your cars that isn't insanely overpriced in EH1. Edinburgh is small enough that you're within a moderate walk or ride to anything you'll want to see.

    Or, just move lightly further out, get something for better value where you have space for your cars etc.

    Or just move to Glasgow, it's miles better.

    @nefarious thanks! I didn't know those tongue tight screws ever existed!

    I'm going to have the rad and washing machine in place and likely running for a couple of weeks before I get round to installing the floor so hopefully any issues will arise before then. My plumber pretty good so I'm sure all will be swell. Thanks!

    Bumping this incase anyone can help:

    With my extension making progress I need to figure out what to do about flooring. Builders are going to put in joists to raise the height of the floor (was an existing lower floor) and ply line over the joists - I'm then getting some Larch floorboards which I will fit myself. How should I do this? Should I secret nail, glue or what. There is pipework underneath and while I hope to never need to access it, it does scare me to not have easy-ish access.
