The wealthy are less worried by large debt than the the poor are worried by small debt. :)
That means I'm really poor then

Plus I was already at Costco and they were doing PS4s for 103 corner, with 20 vouchers back for each 2 fitted.
Not in 275/35/20 they ain't :(

In fact the quotes I got from Costco weren't competitive, which I was slightly surprised at.

Nope, this was standard Omega 17s. Given Kumhos were ~76 corner. Thought PS4s good value.
I rate the PS4 on the Omega. Not the quietest, but decent grip.  But like any soft tyre, you won't be getting 100,000 miles out of a set.

I like them enough to just buy a pair a 275/35/20 and a pot of Vaseline to reduce the damage to my backside.

All the 100bhp ones are Y20DTH ;). But there are 2 different variants.

Do Halfords still do service parts like filters? Thought they had stopped.

Just 100 ponies  :o :o :o

Don't think I could ever drive something with so few horses under the bonnet.  ;D ;D  :P :P

Given how old it is, could have lost a few and have around 90!  :o
Mine has lost many, many horses

I heard that some factories were offline for maintenance, and another one(s) suffered a problem causing a long shutdown, so only 1 or 2 factories left producing in Europe currently.

wasn't that cause of the shortage of CO2  :-\
Yup, similar scenario, only the CO2 was more recent.

one of these old heaps will be so incontinent that insisting on long-life coolant is a bit pointless ;D


If it's got red in it, then use that. Mine came with blue, and that's what I use in it.
I use red, just so I only have to change it every 3 years on so, rather than annually.  Cost is about the same, and the effort is the same, and I'm a lazy bastid :D

If you don't accept the right for people to differ with you and the right to protest on an agenda you disagree......
Whilst that's not what I said, it raises an interesting point.

In all walks of life and work, we get some liberties.  Then a minority, particularly in my work life take too many, and become a PITA/ineffective/corrosive/whatever, and that has to be struck out.

I think the same needs to happen for democracy.  If a significant minority can't deal with it/abuse it/whatever, it needs to be withdrawn.



One comment I heard on the wireless was some tree hugging diesel dyke spewing off about the fact she was protesting about the Trump visit because of the cost of Policing...   .and she couldn't see the irony, clearly. Shame the radio is a one way medium, so she couldn't hear me shouting at her to get back to rug munching

If you park any Omega for more than a week without disconnecting the battery*, expect to have to jump it.

But, do this more than four or five times, and you can expect to be buying a new battery.

* The caveat is to be sure that the key works in the driver's door lock and do not double lock it with the remote...
Most Standard Elites can easily withstand 3-4 weeks if all is in good working order, and the power sounder is in the bin. Lesser models should be a little bit better.

Failed to actually sell it... That's to say the oppsing ladybitsing Onanist who won it has, unsurprisingly, failed to turn up for it/say they have changed their minds >:(
Well, did you really expect any different?

At least its only a small one, unlike what happens in these parts.

And obviously the idiotheads round here encourage and feed the vermin, so its a near daily occurance.

What are they charging these days?

 .....

Too much .... 60  ??? but it gets the interior cooler a lot faster  :)


you do know that's much less than the cost of the refrigerant has increased?

Yes,R134 has just about doubled in price :-\

Is that cos it's hot & everyone is topping up their air con? Supply & demand ....

Not sure why but it was before this hot spell

I must admit, the anti corrosion used on the Zaffy-A seems so much better than that on a similar aged Omega.  You don't see many rusty ones.

My 2002 model seems to be solid enough underneath.

Yup, remove glass completely and clean it up.

Suspect giving you don't wash it properly, its in a poor state, but should be recoverable

Do you get over to Brackley often?  We can plug the diags in.


You likely will need the alarm security code on the 2.6 though.
