I was just so relieved that the tax relief on pension contributions for 40%ers wasnít lowered. That could have been very costly.
Not to say it wonít happen in future.

Indeed, although at around 3.5p/mile (not including an off-peak rate discount) its not a large cost even if I were to foot the bill myself.

And again ..... exactly to the penny  ;D

Likewise.. either we all earn exactly the same amount, or there's something funky in the maths that I don't understand ;D
Itís the same for everyone in the 40% tax bracket, unless you earn over £150,000......dolts!  ;D

No Mr Barnier will sort it when he revokes our passports.  ::)

It will be like a one way valve. You can leave the Uk via the tunnel but not get back in. ;D

The other way round seems more likely, but only for British passport holders of course.  ::)  Everyone else will be able to come and go as they please and have their rights guaranteed by the ECJ, ICJ, US Supreme Court, Chinese Supreme Peoples Court etc etc   :P
Cynic.

My understanding is that the correct self levelling shocks were only made for GM - no aftermarket company to my knowledge has made them. There are Munro shocks advertised as self levellers, but these are not a straight swap, and the pipe work and compressor system is different.
Personally, I would go with the German listed GM shocks - I have looked a them previously, and there nothing to suggest they are anything other than originals, especially as no other manufacturer does a like for like replacement.

Check fluid level .. classic symptoms of low transmission fluid.

Remember .. check when warm and with engine running, auto selector in park, car level...

Mark DTM's method also works .. :)

Yup!

If I were picking an electric commuter I'd probably take the ioniq (once the longer rangebone lands in 2018). There were some hard plastics on the door cards, but the standard car has everything I would want (leather and heated rear seats are the only options) and it was very comfortable indeed. New leaf is a good option too, again generous kit and very comfortable.

Once I've moved house I'll be considering electric. My commute will be around 120miles round trip. Meaning I'll be able to charge the car only at work which is free, plus an hour in the morning so it's all pre heated on a cold morning  :y

The way I worked it out, compared to a diesel doing 48mpg (my Volvo in this case) an electric would be around £90 pcm more over 4 years (approximate duration of the battery/motor warranties) i wouldn't have to service it myself and there are no hidden costs.

As a tool for going to work and back, the arguments are compelling.

Therein lies the rub. Once companies realise how much it is costing , it will be pass cost on to their customers or charge their staff.

My 2003 2.2 petrol has developed 2 niggles.

At last fluid change, about 3 years ago.
Once it's been driven and then stands a few hours, next time you drive it 1st gear revs quite high before it changes. Not been a problem as it only does it once.

Last week.
There's a roundabout 1/2 a mile from home. everything's fine till then. At the roundabout when I pull off it feels like a manual. rev-no movement than a second later its like your foot slips off the clutch and bangs onto gear. After that it's fine.
Any thoughts?

Mike
