I'd get a makita set for general use and abuse and buy the odd individual ones for nice jobs and look after them.

I don't really know where they got the price tag of 210K out of that but the interior is delicious.

It might not be the belt that fails, it may well be the tensioners, pulleys or water pump that kicks the bucket. Replacing the water pump at the same time (with a genuine article) is often (or should...

There is no point in getting into a patch of marital discord over the issue. Buy an automatic and let her learn in that, in future all cars will be automatic anyway so its hardly a problem today.

There never was any nest or bird. It was a mass of leaves that had accumulated in the gutter.

Huge collections of bird droppings are a health hazard in my book as well, best not left.

I would not buy anything from Currys/PC World on principle, although I do go in there to see what stuff looks like in the flesh and give it a whirl.
