When my roof was done 5 years ago the front screen rubber was just lifted and the sunroof opened. That was a 500 job but did only last 5 years until the little dots started appearing again.
This time they removed the screen to do a better job as a small line or rust had gone under and into the screen aperture. Again sunroof opened and rear pillar trims removed.
This time it was bare metalled but. Also the bonnet,boot and sides above waistline too so cannot compare price wise.
QED

Also very similar symptoms to if the snow button was pressed .could be connected ? . Faulty ?
Again this is also dependant on wether this is an April fools joke that has been carried on too long or as mentioned also someone who thinks driving at over 100 mph is acceptable !
Personally I'm fed up to my back teeth of the amount of people who blatantly break the 20 mph limits around by me and not by a few mph either !
Nuff said or il go into victor mode !

also used to do the top 40 thing on sunday nights back circa 1980- 81.
even did a stint as a dj for a while on an independant where the sought after spot was doing the top 40 .i never managed to get it thou as it didnt come up often.
now couldnt think of a worse job to do .rather unblock drains !
but yes the sky 70's and 80's channels are great. also the spotlight channel( country) where apart from the ridiculous autotune ,music even current has stayed mainly good.
rest of channels especially current music just total talentless crap.

no idea then. checked mine again this morning. warning buzzer working as it should. maybee yours is wired different. my blue wire goes directly from drivers door plug across to passenger side 'bundle' of blue wires.the blue wire to the warning buzzer is still intact and working.
if its not a problem leave as is.or if not reconnect at passenger side and disconnect where you saw the wire going up to the door plug.

Guy Gibsons dog , now nameless in the "Dambusters"

Nigger was a common name for black cats and dogs back in the day......The removal of the poor mutts name is yet more evidence of snowflakery, wokery, and bellendery.

back in the 1920's you could buy austin cars in nigger brown and im pretty sure in the 70's you could by paint of the same name. nobody was offended.
the world has gone totally crazy.nowadays.this is why i preach on to my friends and family about how much better life was growing up in the 70's and 80's.yes there were troubles,strikes etc but everyday life was better.
life,people,values are horrible nowadays.
everyone gets offended about anything.

mine still works as normal.
you did disconnect the blue wire that goes to the door connector didnt you and not the one that goes to the door push switch.
the blue wire from the push switch is linked directly to the lights on buzzer amongst other places so no reason why it wouldnt work ? ?

one of my friends had an early renault 5. gearlever came out of the middle of the dashboard.took a bit of getting used to.
then swapped it after a while for a later model with the gearlever in the right place.

but yes to original post. hard as it may seem to admit it but i was pleasently surprised by my girlfriends clit. nice enough to drive ( if a little light on the controls),economical (1.2 dynamique too).french albeit and peugeot aside they did make some comfy cars. mate at work used to love his citroen sm

still have a 1976 Triumph 2500S saloon in Carmine Red with no rot whatsoever. I've owned it since 1998. It does have a very sheltered life though having only done less than 60k....

sounds very nice.
i still have a few cars that i bought in the late 80's .viva and 2 cavs and they are used on rotation as dailys all year round . no issues with major corrosion as theyre checked over and repaired as/ if req every springtime .
probably used more than the omega realy as ive done less than 5000 in it since i bought it in 2015 thou it does get used every week.

There was an article in the paper a couple of months ago saying that the average life of a " modern" vehicle is 14 years now.


looking back on all the cars we had in the family growing up. every one of them gone now (or at least untaxed/ un moted etc) so most likely gone.and they were all aged between 12 and 15 years ( least was our hunter which only managed 9 years and a 84 cav that only did 10)so modern cars like the omega should theoretically survive longer but i would imagine its the electrics and diagnostic stuff that fails nowadays rather than rust. most cars i remember in the 60' and 70's growing up had underseal all around the lower 6" or so ,increasing by a half inch every time you tidied it up or bought one from a used car forecourt.

like the idea of the milton fluid.how does that compare to a dash of disinfectant. mine are prone to getting sludged up and due to mileage only get topped up about once a year !
at least on the omega thou its always just the pump filter . other cars block the nozzles .
