  1. Car share with a friend?

    As hes such a good friend I wouldnt risk it personally One of my best mates fell out with me after doing him a favour on his car even though I was £2500 out of pocket as a result ( and didnt even say anything)
  2. 2001 vvtli sunroof

    the gear may be engaged so might need a little pull to get it out Post a pic if that doesnt work
  3. Rear fogs

    Assuming you have one tail light that is a single filament bulb and one that is a stop and tail. Swap the single filament for a twin filament and wire the brighter side to the fog switch
  4. E10 fuel?

    Using Ethanol as fuel does little to reduce CO2 emissions anyway once you factor in the energy used to produce, fertilize, harvest, process and transport it. Its a nice idea but ultimately flawed.
  5. it works with the rest of the kit in my opinion
  6. Gen 7..good used buy or not?

    Can work both ways, I've bought cars from members on here that have had some serious (and even dangerous) bodges. And to add to that Ive seen work by "specialists" of the same quality. Really need to get the car checked out properly I guess....
  7. Gen 7..good used buy or not?

    lots of dogs but lots of good cars just because it has a lot of service stamps doesnt mean its not rotten and vice versa - no service history doesnt mean its a dog main thing is getting a good look underneath and seeing how it drives im regretting parking mine up now - it never let me down and is still solid underneath but I need a change now so wont be bringing it back
  8. Gen 7 Roof Bars.

    i have a set but one rubber foot is missing - will find it when i tidy up one day
  9. I don't think they ever use the info, so many places online making "show plates" without asking for docs it makes a mockery of the whole scheme
  10. Cruse Control.

    aftermarket kit would be easier to fit than trying to refit the factory one there is a member on here who has done it
  11. Petrol prices :(

    Started training for london to brighton last week so ive been doing my 13 mile (each way) commute on the bike With traffic in the morning in the car it takes around 40 mins to an hour and its almost always an hour on the way back Got back in an hour and 4 minutes on the bike yesterday so its a no brainer now to become a regular thing until it gets icy, getting quicker each ride as well as I get more familiar with the cycle paths
  12. Petrol prices :(

    Barrel price is creeping up combined with slightly weaker £ to $ Just need to hope the barrel price doesnt get back up over $100 whilst the £ is weak
  13. 2001 vvtli

    are the pads stuck in the carriers?
  14. 2001 vvtli

    stuck pads, siezed piston or a seized pins in the carrier
  15. Spacer Fitment Advice

    So the advice has always been to finger tighten them and apply loctite. I found on more than one occasion when customers brought cars in with them fitted that when I removed the wheel nut the stud would come out with it. Whenever I have fitted them I have applied loctite and used the 2 nut 2 spanner method to tighten them and Ive never seen one come back out.
