Yes..

Just one question: What made their overalls turn brown? ;)
Lift off oversteer :D

.. and affected Buzz too. I understand he doesn't scare easily, either. :-\

It does require car, Tech 2, fob and car pass code to be in the same place, unfortunately.

Be happy to help, though. :y

No, that's the insignia.

Doesn't the Insignia have more in common with the steaming richard the dog has just deposited? ;D

I don't think the Insignia is quite as attractive or fragrant as your description suggests, Kevin.

The good news is this makes the model undesirable and therefore inexpensive. :y

Being blind would also help but this may cause problems for other drivers. :)

True enough, and, in this automotive desert, that might make it worthy of consideration as an Omega successor if nothing else floats my boat by then. After all, you don't have to look at the @rse end of it from the driver's seat. ;)

If only I were worthy of even aspiring to Signum ownership. :(

 ;D

Plenty on ebay, but I don't know if they will fit or not.
Yes, considerably more choice than when I did it, but you're still buying blind.

Better off purchasing some bosses and plugs, plug the existing holes and weld in the bosses after the main cats.

You can get lambda spacers or 90 degree bend. These take the lambda out of the flow of gases. If you are making a drift car, why do you care about the EML being on?

I've tried spacers. Failed at the first hurdle because the nose of the sensors is too wide to fit into any that I could find. :-\

As said, tried and tested solution is to relocate behind main cats.

Omega General Help / Re: Remote control door opener died
« on: Yesterday at 16:31:51 »
The remote fobs often die due to one or both pins on the battery holder coming away from the PCB.
The switches die as well, so probably worth swapping them for some new ones.

The only Apple product i buy goes on the side of the plate when pork is served  ::)

I guess IOS 12 is equivalent to

Not a cider fan, then?

Mostly, but it slows your machine down deliberately instead of due to incompetence. ;)

I've always fancied a rotary engined MX-5 myself. I reckon that'd be great fun.  8) (In-between tip seal changes, natch)

I wasn't so keen on the Mk3 when we first got it, preferring the Mk2, but it has grown on me.

If you think the TC on the Omega is intrusive, the Mk3 is something to behold. It gives me slaps on the wrist all the time when I'm not even trying to misbehave. Just as well there's an off button. ;D

The Mk3, in 2.0 form, at least, has a very welcome increase in grunt. In fact, the engine is so much better in every way. Much more refined, a much nicer noise, much more willing to rev and bearable on long motorway runs.

Yes, the chassis could handle a bit more grunt, but having to keep it on the boil, and being able to wring every last BHP out of it without the chassis becoming unstuck is part of the appeal for me.

Must blag a drive in a Mk4 some time, although it would be in 124 Spider form for me, as I find the Mazda version a complete minger and the 124 is  :-* :-* :-*

I was once waiting at a red light in the MX5...

Elite Pete was once sitting at the end of a runway in an MX5.. Waiting for a gaggle of 3.0 and 3.2 Omegas to catch up. ;D

I really don't care about the MX5s image. It is probably the most entertaining production car I've driven. Not the fastest, by a long way, but it's not remotely comparable with a Triumph Shitfire. ;)

This is a rumour like Roswell. 8) 8)
There's video evidence somewhere, IIRC. ;D

.. but I know for a fact my 3.2 would be blown away my Mrs. KW's MX5... Up to about 125 MPH, at any rate. :-X

It's a little white box plugged into the fuse box under the steering column IIRC...

Think I've killed them!  :y

On the third attempt of trying to squirt Wasp Nest Killer via a tube through the hole in the ceiling, I obviously hit the sweet spot, as I managed to dispense the entire can in there and the next day there were only a couple flying around outside!  :y

No need for petrol or lycra!  ;D

Mass Murderer!  :D

If you're not killing polar bears with diesel fumes you're killing defenceless wasps (and their families) :)

FTFY M'lud!  :y

As to defenceless wasps, next time you get a wasps nest your attic I dare you to go and sit up there in your Y-Fronts:o  ;D

Oh, God! Second time in one thread. :o
