Albs...I rate it as it works fine and if you spend a lot of time behind the wheel driving and need to be incontact with work etc,I think its a good hands free system :y

Got a Parrott CK3100 fitted in my Elite and has worked fine .Unsure how it was wired in but invoice shows a Autolead part number and remember the guy saying it had been picked up at the Nokia hardwired part of the cars own wiring under the glovebox.

Microphone fitted by interior mirror and little display just under main headlight switch.

When used it auto disconnects the audio part from the radio/cd player and sound comes through car speakers .

All worked fine...…...although have a slight issue with internal of NCDC since getting nav back working so need the skills of TB to sort it out

General Car Chat / Front Bumper
« on: 21 October 2018, 15:12:47 »
Whilst my car was parked at local shops some scumbag  :(has caught the o/s of my front bumper and has left a large scuff removing most of the Z20 black paint from the corner..

Only option I can see is a full front bumper repaint as its had previous damage in it past life.

Could do with some guide line of what cost I am likely to be faced with tomorrow when I go out searching for repair.??

Assume Smart repair would be less than body shop but some guidance would be really useful :y

On my old Elite it was very evident when you applied more load to 1 side than the other ..either by steering at around 40/50mph or when turning at similar speed.

Agree with not whishing to attempt replacing yourself  ;)

Mine stays well planted at motorway speed ;)in rain or dry but have tended to notice in really heavy downpours the front seems to go a little light almost like aqua-planning but only when getting a shift on.

Drop down abit and its back to stable again.

Running on Continentals with a good 6mm on all 4 and alignment spot on  :y

Yes agree we have a fair amount of preparation work.Current drive/hard standing is concrete and will need breaking up and removing so expect 2 days..possibly 2 skips and 2 guys so that should be £200 each man/£250 x 2 skips so to remove max 1k

Decent block paving at say £350/£400 a pack and will need 7 so £2800 tops so cant see where its costing £2400 to lay them ..or am I being unrealistic ??? ::)

Can assure you they will get nowt until they start and then just cost of materials etc,but going on the 2 quotes so far neither will be getting my "hard earnt" anyway.

Both my quotes were detailed enough.

1 wanted a 70% downpayment the day they started to cover all the above.

Other wanted 50% on accepting the quote .

Need to find an Irish Navi  ;D

That's very true...most don't even have the cap now ...just a long suck through their teethless chops whilst smoking an electric puff pipe >:(

Had a similar experience here as we are in need of our driveway repairing/replacing as the current concrete is badly cracking and breaking up in parts,but has been down for 35 years .

Size is 8.0mtrs wide X 7.mtrs with my maths that is 56m2 so allowing for wastage/etc we need no more than 60m2.

Had 2 quotes ,1 for concrete which stated 75m2 and was £3700 and another for block paving at 65m2 at £6200 both inc VAT.

Not only are both quotes obscene but are also inflated by material which also assumes the labour is based on the material so am paying for work and material not needed. >:(

Glad is now sorted Al. :y

Agree about being abit specialist as mine was fitted twice >:(..second guy was proper old school and said he had fitted lots of them when they were a popular car so knew what he was doing and made a first class job

Coarse thread like a screw,but mine have an 8mm head so I use an 8mm deep socket on a 1/4 long extension tucked under the headlight guided in with a torch beam
