I only ever use Kumho tyres these days, and run them right down to the legal limit.

But yes, black ice can do it.

Apparently.... :-[ :-X

In an omega. The sensation of thinking youíre going to die when coming off a roundabout in the damp.

You must have had Autogrips on the back!  ;D

Yep, I do wonder what people do to Omegas to make them apparently do this. Mine needs serious provocation to even think about stepping out of line even in the worst driving conditions. :-\

Indeed. But you donít skimp on the only contact with the road ;) ::)

Mine was frequently stepping out when I was provoking it but in normal use I only ever had 1 incident (which Wasnít a drama!) when I found some black ice :-\

What make of equipment is used is pretty much irrelevant.

It all depends on whether the guy pressing the buttons has the slightest idea what he's doing, and, sadly, many don't. :(

Good luck with the project and keep us updated. :y

As to the fittings, I'm not sure but I think I'd be inclined to take the fuel rail off and take it down to an agricultural / hydraulic hose supplier and see if they can match it. Failing that, post a wanted ad here. Someone breaking an Omega would give you the hoses for a few beer tokens, I'm sure.

Plenty of XEs still running round in kit cars, if not in their original applications.

180 BHP just for swapping to Weber carbs, and more with throttle bodies, without even a change of cams, so it's not hard to see why.

They do seem prone to the odd "catastrophic failure" but then most are putting out a bit more power than GM intended. I've seen a slightly more breathed-on example make over 300 BHP on Emerald's rolling road. :o

I thought David Davis was going to negotiate sorting it out for good with a very large can of expanding foam in 2019. :-\

I had one for an hour.

It doesn't drive have it looks it would (thankfully) and was more fun than I thought it would be. Ultimately, ride was too hard and seats not comfortable enough for the daily grind imho.

Standard BMW features, then. ;D

I guess they aren't as top-heavy as they look thanks to the batteries.  :y

GM ones, you fixed it by inserting a short length of tubing into one of the water galleries.  :y
