Omega General Help / Re: What car should I buy?
« on: 15 November 2018, 21:03:07 »
I think Life is the base model (wheel trims etc) and SXi is usually the one that looks sporty but isn't (Alloys, boot spoiler, sport style seats) but otherwise standard.
Sri is the sporty one...
Which it also isn't LOL

Usually VX's SRI models have stiffer shocks, bit more Ali trim, bigger alloys, barryboys exhaust trim and if your very lucky a closer ratio gearbox (Vectra B).  ::)

Played with Amba's stereo to sort that mute issue, then repaired my jump leads and put them back in the Jag.  The Omega is never here for me to put a set back in there ;D

Replace back board to solve?
Indeed. We've both seen that fault before.

Only downside is its been a few years since I last stripped one that far, so I had to think about it ;D
You and me both

Must be within reach of the driver by regulation...

Really? On my BMW it's under the bonnet.  :-\

Is it OBD I or OBD II though?

Thereís a plastic cover underneath the handbrake lever. Pull it up and your prize will be revealed 👍
Two seven year old McDonalds chips, half a polo, plenty of fluff and hair and a toenail

Must be within reach of the driver by regulation... so if not under the steering column try the centre console area, On the later Zaf it was somewhere in the lower centre console IIRC so probably the same for an Astra

That's a yes from me  :y

yet this very forums shop uses the American date format-or it did some while ago when I ordered window stickers :y
That could well be related to the fact its running American software, running on American servers situated in an American Datacenter (SIC), set with an American timezone and American locales.

Go on, say American one more time  :D ;D
And an American OS.


Happy?

So are the products in the shop only suitable for Cadillac Catera's then?

Rainsport 3 used on the daily, decent tyre Imho (worked well in the 2 months of snow in Scotland last winter when I was working there even though it is a rain tyre!) but not an out and out sports orientated tyre.

Washed the bus and my 3.2.

Peeled some laqure off the bonnet of the 3.2  :(


Karcher K4 with correct car bit, whole bonnet suffers a bit, even more so at the front.

Itís been going for a long time, just the bonnet that has it.

My BMW has some peeling laqueur and I've thought about having a go at it with a rattle can....  :-\

I think though if I just leave it, it'll add character.  :)

Same.  :y
A rattle can won't work without clearing back past the edges... flatting and a lacquer coat will tidy it up without looking too shit, but much over a couple of square inches and you're into complete panel territory ;)

The quick fix is to find a good condition bonnet in the right colour. Or if in the case of TBE the wings needed swapping as well.  ;D

How does a washing machine hold LPG?


Present Mrs VXL with a large bucket and a 3 ponged dolly. And a mangle if feeling generous.  Then when you are in A&E recovering, you're free to investigate tanks. Win-win in my book.

Mr VXL does the washing since Mrs VXL's op! I did repair her old machine, new bearings cleaned up the tub etc... just should have asked for some help from son when lowering it back in as dropping the tub c/w concrete blocks tends to smash everything on its way down and given the fact it is was 17 years old I decided no more investment in it was worthwhile!

Replaced rear lock solenoid on the project with one that works, then gave it a quick wash.

Need to start looking at LPG tanks for it but typically need to buy a new washing machine first

Yes, but suspension, tyres and geometry all need to be spot on Imho
