That is why I believe that if they make us vote again, everyone who believes in democracy, whether a leaver or remainer in the first vote, must vote for leave, to keep our democracy alive.
There shouldn't be another vote (no matter how cocked up the original was). But if there is, it should not include option to remain - the leave/remain vote has already happened...   ...so I've managed to change my mind whilst typing this into another referendum with:

Leave with Chequeresque (with mods, obviously) deal
Hard exit.

On the off chance that another deal comes along in the next few days - highly unlikely - include that.

I bought a bmw x3 with electric everything :-X anyway i knew when i bought it the drivers side mirror would not tilt or fold away. That didnt bother me as the passenger side one did , also the passenger one tilted down when put in reverse. That has now stopped working as well. The windows on both sides still work off the drivers switch. Could somebody tell me is they a way of testing the wireing to the mirrors without have to strip the door down. There is only one fuse so i cant see it being that as 1 was workkng.
I do have a multi meter but dont really know how to use it, so would need to know what to switch it to and what i would expect ghe results to be.
 I spoke to local garage and they want 78 a hour to try and identify whats wrong.

Any help would be appreciate.

I  believe you have got this fundamentally wrong Nick. Parliament  gave the people the power to take the decision whther to leave or remain. The people decided to leave. No if, buts or conditions.
Parliament then voted on and enacted legislation to invoke article 50, and leave on 29th March this year. No ifs, no buts, no conditions.
Most of them did this because their constituents voted for it, not because they believed in it.
Ken Clark was the only Tory to vote against the withdrawal act, so he is the only one who has any kind of right to take the stance he has taken.
But the point is, when they gave the decision to the people, and enacted legislation on the result of that, they effectively suspended the representative element of Parliament in this matter.
The situation is (and was always understood by most people imo) that the Govt gets some kind of deal. If that deal isn't acceptable, then we leave regardless.
Once the dust had settled, those who don't actually believe in the right of the people to take the decision, or even the legislation they voted to enact, started making mischief, muddying the water, frustrating the process, hoping to cause so much confusion theat the whole thing will die a death.
It might happen, but if it does, whats left of our democracy dies with it.
That is why I believe that if they make us vote again, everyone who believes in democracy, whether a leaver or remainer in the first vote, must vote for leave, to keep our democracy alive.
Im gladdened to know that several diehard remainers of my acquaintance completely agree with me.

I stuck my (new, cheap) drop-tester on the battery in the BMW .. I didn't think it was a good sign when it read 12.1V before I'd even started the load test (given the battery was connected to a charger until 30 seconds before that) and much less good when it read ~11V under load  :-X ;D I guess that's bollarded, then! Still, it looks original (BMW battery) so that shouldn't surprise me too much.
I keep meaning to put the (new, cheap) droptester on the Jaaaaggg.

But its cold outside.

Is yours a Chinese special or is it a Sealey? The manual that came with my Chinese special is .. very special indeed. It's about as much use for working out how to use it as reading the local takeaway menu would be ;D
Chinky. But looks obvious enough, and with a good description on the back for the 3 possible outcomes.

You'll be surprised at just how little pressure is required at idle; this is one of the reasons why manufacturers stopped fitting gauges.

And why the idiot light usually comes on at something like 4psi..

Just replacing parts isn't the best way of diagnosis, but a failing sensor is such a common fault and one that's so cheaply and easily fixed that fitting a new sensor is the place to start.


If the problem persists, then you check the pressure with a proper gauge and the specification.

A short run up the road won't even get the car up to temp  ::)
and it's when warm the oil will be thin ,surprised the garage said it was ok to drive any distance without proper testing  :o
will they replace the engine for free if it goes tits up on the way back to bristol ??
at the very least , i'd want to do an oil and filter change before going any distance or in traffic .
'd also check the coolant is ok and circulating and the fan works when hot  :y
