No, lightships are a completely different thing altogether... :P

Lizzie only mentions is because Ashford is already a convenient lorry park. No one else mentioned it because they neither live in Ashford, nor particularly care. ::)

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Headlight washer Q...
« on: Yesterday at 20:47:26 »
Wiring diagram shows the headlight washer relay using the number plate light feed as its trigger.

Any reason why the nsf sidelight can't be tapped into as an alternative :-\

New wishbones polybushed and front struts built up ready for fitting next weekend.

Xenons polished up and new bulb set fitted. Might get them fitted tomorrow if it stays dryish... need to paint the washer jets though :-\

Nah, was a colleague... Driving home on Wednesday morning...

He's young and stupid... Drives a '63 320d as though it were an M3 :-X

A good kick up the arse will be no bad thing, but it will be interesting to see if he mentions it at work... If he keeps his job, it will be pushing wheelchairs for a while...

A random license check in a month or so might be in order ::)

The Desmond does go better with a manual box. The auto needs thrashing a bit compared to the V6. Fortunately it is a reasonably rev happy engine, albeit a touch thrashy compared to the V6.

Apples and oranges really  :y

Some of those landscapes look pretty brown and parched.  Have they had a dry summer?  :-\
Oz has been roasting since September...

All the drugs etc from your treatment will be stress testing your entire system anyway, regardless of alcohol intake... Obviously mixing the two is asking for trouble.

Also don't forget that given the physical pounding of the accident, that your nerves and muscles will never quite be the same...

What's the standard response to NSL +30 on a motorway?

Not me and my Desmond :D

Chazza12 Thanks ever so much for the link to the Vectra Manual. Probably a silly question this for you but this is for a Vectra 2005 to 2008.  My Omega is 2001. Will it still be okay for my vehicle? Thanks ever so much for letting me know.
Ideally you need the one for 2002-2005 :y

Ill bare that in mind, Im topping the coolant up weekly at the mo, although it could be worse
Well that rather depends...

A pint every 2,000 miles isn't bad, a gallon every 100 miles however...  ::)

Two pots? Hows that going to work without being rough as a bears arse? Flywheel the size of the London Eye?
Probably by firing any two of the three cylinders every rotation...  :-\
