Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Re: Windscreen wipers
« on: Yesterday at 23:02:21 »
I buy the GM ones by the boxful for the ABS club shop
As did I when I had my MV6. Sadly, TBE has those stupid sensors, so gets the hopeless aeros.

Why do rain sensors mean different wipers are needed ?  ???

Us Brits my well have a five times Champion by the end of this week. And a very well deserved one imo.  8)
So far in Austin it has rained every session and Hamilton has been untouchable, as he is an absolute master in the wet.
Vetttel on the other hand ignored red flags earlier today and the stewards have given him a three place grid penalty  for doing so.
Vettels reaction to this has been to issue a statement saying that the red flag rules are wrong.  ::) ;D
If someone said to me now that Hamilton is the greatest of all time, I don't think I could come up with anything much to say in disagreement.  :-\

Where is Guy Fawkes when we need him ?  ::)
If Im still around I will be 73, and possibly still driving. I really wanted this to happen after it couldn't possibly affect me.  :(

You do it all the time, we just don't bother mentioning it normally.  :)

Mine is Euro3 as per most others here, currently ULEZ expansion is just shy of the office, so won’t impact the commute.

If they tweak ULEZ or expand it further, my 3.2 will be up for sale.  :'(

Have you checked if yours is subject to ULEZ charge ? Ive checked my 02 plate 3.2 and it isn't.

It says I'm not affected with my 3.2, but I think it's a bug with their lookup. We know the 3.2's are all Euro3.

Here: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ultra-low-emission-zone/cars?intcmp=54362

It states Petrol must be Euro4, I think it's doing just a year lookup as it says "most cars post 2001" are unaffected.

Hopefully that wont matter. I will print it off and then use it in defence if they bill me.  :)

Cheers boys.

I suspect the geometry setup is out of WIM spec cos I did it two years ago. I’m doing that again very soon. However I do have shit tyres (cheap BCTs). The only thing going for them is that they’re so hard they’ve been on for 3.5 years and still have 6mm tread 🤔🤔🤔

There is your issue. You pay your money and make your choice.  ;)

Junction 20B A12 southbound is another one which is easy to get onto in the wrong direction if you don't know it. A woman and her children were killed doing this several years ago. Although the signage is better now than it was then.

A bit of cleaning and light restoration work on the mighty C90. Tried to work out if there was any way of attaching a fireblade engine to the frame, but I think that's a non starter.  :D

Merc parts are often not as expensive as you might imagine. Several good forums with lots of info for diy work.
Main expense can be the ABC system if it goes wrong, but there is info to sort that without taking out a mortage.
