General Car Chat / Big rise in cost of air con servicing.
« on: Yesterday at 22:09:27 »
Has this been discussed on here before? Booked my Vectra in for one today and the guy, (who also did my Desmond :'() says that the cost of the fluid has gone up in price due to EU rationing the amount that can be manufactured to combat climate change. Seems the fluid is very harmful to the environment and if there won,t be enough around some drivers might be disappointed. Anyone else have any thoughts?

BTW, one of the authors of article 50 has said it cannot be revoked without another referendum or a general election. So the signatories to this petition have wasted their ink. You can't just change what the people voted for without the people asking you to change it......apparently.

Thanks for that Uncle STEMO!  :y

I'll post that on Devon For Europe's facebook page, where they are getting orgasmic about the petition!  ;D

They might brand me a troll and ban me though as they don't like dissenting views...  ::)  ;D
Surely things like that can't happen in a democracy such as ours?

I don't think facebook is a democracy.....  :-\

It is strange though, these people putting up these sites on facebook to promote their political views, but then they immediately ban people who come along with an opposing opinion.  ::)
That's one thing I'll never have to worry about. I don't know how to work an arsebook.
Ditto, neither do i want to. :)

Try not to worry about something you can,t do anything about, let others do it. Just concentrate on what you can control. Works for me. :y

I have a Lumia 640 for work, and its positively....   ...utter crap in every way. Utter, utter crap.  The hardware is awful, and the OS is very very buggy and inconsistent.  Did I mention it was shite.

Its one and only redeeming feature is pretty reasonable battery life...  ...but that doesn't take away the fact its utter shite.


In summary, its shite.

I only want it to make and receive calls and I have no idea what an 'app' is or what to do with one.

Still, TB seems to rate it highly as he rates Shami naked and available,  so for 55 delivered 'what's the worst that can happen'? ;) 8)

Omega General Help / Re: Exhaust for 2.5 estate
« on: 15 March 2019, 17:43:12 »
I think I should make an appointment then at the opticians :D
However,  my experience of mixing mild steel and stainless exhaust systems (albeit on classic cars), is that due to the differing expansion rates of mild steel and stainless, it isn't always easy to maintain a gas right joint, especially on male/ female sliding joints. A heat resistant red silicon allows for slight movement whilst maintaining a gas tight seal, and it also aids subsequent separation of the joint, whereas an exhaust paste sets rock hard, with no allowance for expansion movement, and is horrible stuff to remove if you need to separate the joint at a later date. Bolted flanges such as the cat to centre section as on the Omega stand a better chance between differet metals, but I would either keep to all stainless or all mild steel.
With the red silicon, there is also no need to overtighten the clamps - nip them up firmly to hold the two sections together, but overtightening only deforms the pipe, and makes later separation difficult. I would also try and source or reuse the original VX style D clamps, rather than use U clamps, as U clamps are more likely to put an indentation in the pipe it is clamping which makes life difficult when separating later.
Whats as gas right joint? ;D

Same as a  'as gas right joint' ;D
Note to self. Before and when taking the pish, please ensure that spelling is correct.  :-[ ;D ;D
