Mine is Euro3 as per most others here, currently ULEZ expansion is just shy of the office, so won’t impact the commute.

If they tweak ULEZ or expand it further, my 3.2 will be up for sale.  :'(

Have you checked if yours is subject to ULEZ charge ? Ive checked my 02 plate 3.2 and it isn't.

Interesting .......  :)

According to that site the 2001 V6 3.2 is not subject to ULEZ... so according to the list it "must" be at least Euro 4 ... but the HPI link in the opening post lists it as Euro 3 .......

Left hand meet right hand ????

.... all the exit junctions (which would have become an "entry") are deliberately designed to make it extremely difficult to turn on "incorrectly". ... tight turns, angled roads, high kerbs, etc etc

I believe the concept is called "passive design" and is a major part of all road planning, and has been for many years. IIRC

I agree Nige but, strangely in this case, if you are on the flyover on Ibstone Road near Stokenchurch, you can turn down the M40 exit quite easily from either direction. Against two massive No Entry signs i grant you. Very sad outcome all the same.

Thanks for that... as I don't frequent or know the area it might explain things ... wonder why that particular junction remains "unmodified" ....  a point for the coroner to raise if that is a part of the reason behind this unfortunate sequence of events ??  ...  :(

EDIT:

Just google earthed that junction and I see what you mean !! Not a roundabout to be seen just simple junctions...  ... not good passive design at all...


you can almost imagine the "turn right (or left) in 200 yards" and the right (or left) turn arrows on the screen command being misinterpreted  and the early turn happening .....

Does anyone have knowledge or experience of the various systems offered for insulating conservatory rooves?
Roofs.

Mr Shackeng was a pilot for forty years. He won't take kindly to being lectured on the finer points of spelling and punctuation by an errant scouser. :)

Please do NOT insult the honorable gentleman ... he never was past of the "drivers, airframe, for the use of" branch of Her Majesty's Royal Air Force ..... please note his screenname .. shackENG ....

However as a Master Engineer of some seniority he would have often taught junior pilots the intricacies of correct Service Writing ...

Take his license away.
Then shoot him.
Then shoot his family.


Looks like a Hyundai .. Terracan maybe? Jimmy....

The same(ish) stretch was at a standstill this morning (northbound, I was going southbound) after another big shunt. Won't be long until it's made "Smart" to stop these kinds of incidents*


*that's sarcasm, btw.

That's all standard motorway, none of the M40 is going smart. M4 is....

Which I'm pretty sure is why it's quicker for me to detour 20 miles across Silverstone and come down the M40 (unsmart) than it is to drive down the M1 (smart)..

 :'( :'( :'(   Not the most sensible of posts IMHO, with 3 people dead.

I doubt there was the intention to kill, or die, in the minds of the folks in the vehicles, who will have all had families and friends now suffering great loss.

Not withstanding all the pikey comments .. well used to them by now ... I struggle to understand how ANYONE ends up "accidentally" on the wrong side .... all the exit junctions (which would have become an "entry") are deliberately designed to make it extremely difficult to turn on "incorrectly". ... tight turns, angled roads, high kerbs, etc etc

I believe the concept is called "passive design" and is a major part of all road planning, and has been for many years. IIRC, there was even a load of "retrospective" work done on many junctions that were not originally designed that way.

Stripped the plenum and intake off of kitty to replace a breather elbow that was leaking and causing the EML to come on randomly.  Changed the coils and plugs while I was at it and had the dreaded coolant hose plastics break on me too so there was another 120 quid in parts.  Swapped out the stabilisor rods and drop links too as they were shot.

Anyone would think an MOT is on the horizon ::)

Looks like I has shagged it  :'(

metaphorically ... I hope ...

Later Omega rims being 'snowflake' alloys is my description of their appearance to differentiate them from the earlier Elite alloy. And looking at the above link ^, I know which look more like the snowflake symbol to me......

ahhhh you have a major misunderstanding   :)  you appear to think that "snowflake" wheels are the same .. .. you fail to realise that ..

"Scientists estimate the chances of two snowflakes being exactly alike are about 1 in 1 million trillion (that's a 1 followed by 18 zeros). Meteorologists think that there are 1 trillion, trillion, trillion (a 1 with 36 zeros!) different types of snowflakes"

... so getting hold of a set of 4 will be just a tad difficult !!!

A wife asks her software engineer husband - "Hey, could you go to the shop for me and get a litre of milk? And if they have eggs, get six."

The husband returns with six litres of milk. - "Why on earth did you buy six liters of milk??" asks the bewildered wife.

"They had eggs."

No reports of that fault here:

https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/vauxhall/astra-j-2009/good/

Nothing here for ESP, other than no button, which is odd as there is a TC button.

https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/vauxhall/zafira-c-2012/good/

Interestingly, numerous "odd" electrical failures are listed .. for both the Zafira and the Astra ....
