Omega General Help / Sunroof Seal
« on: 13 July 2018, 20:45:32 »
Itís not leaking, but there is an awful lot of wind noise from the front of it. Iíve had it open a few times in hot weather, to cool car down quicker. Sure itís noiser, perhaps not sealed as well. Nice steady 85mph cruise, I had to close the blind itís that annoying.

Does look all cracked and such, it is a 16 years old...

Easy to replace? Worth doing?

General Car Chat / Uh-oh
« on: 05 July 2018, 16:57:14 »
My car share buddy has just ordered a M140i, with manual box.

Hopefully it proves more reliable than Jimmy's  :o

Does make me wonder though, he is about 6 years younger than me, does own/mortgage his own place. But cruises around in brand new high spec BMW's.

I just use a 16 year old rusting banger barge  :-[  :D  ;D

General Discussion Area / Mortgage Brokers

Anyone used one recently? Do they actually manage to provide a better deal than high street options?

It's renew time this year, looking to wrap this into a house move as well. I want to go fixed rate for 5 years, to ride out what ever the Brexit storm is.

Probably going to go with Halifax again, as all my stuff is with them. 1.79% fixed for 5 Years is about best I can do with them.

Trouble is we've seen a house we really like, but I doubt I can find another 100k behind the sofa  ;D ;D

Need replacement glass, for drivers side mirror.

A taxi driver clipped my mirror, the housing survived but cracked the glass.

General Car Chat / Zafira Tourer - Pollen Filter
« on: 03 April 2018, 13:24:29 »
Does anyone know if I need the carbon type filter, for a 2014 Zafira-C? ECP shows both plain white and black carbon versions.  :-\

Rather know via the easy way than having to remove the old one first, as I will need to remove the glovebox.

It does not have climate, just regular air-con.

Rather not have faff of posting, could meet halfway within a reasonable distance of Camberley. Can also bring to Osterley area of London.

Omega General Help / Barke Discs
« on: 22 February 2018, 10:58:04 »
When it's warmed up a bit, I need to replace the front discs on the 3.2, as they are suffering the usual rust build up on the inside of the disc, plus a lip is there so time to replace anyway.

Anyone used ECP's Brembo ones? Do they offer anything other than marketing crap?

50% off on the moment, which sparked my interest, as could get a pair of Eicher's for £35.

General Car Chat / Dealer Showrooms
« on: 20 January 2018, 20:12:56 »
While waiting for the 3.2 to be sorted today, I walked to a Vauxhall and Ford dealer. I wanted to compare the new Insignia vs Mondeo. (By actually sitting in them!)

Whatís odd is neither dealer had one in its show room, the Vauxhall dealer did not have a single new shape Insignia. The Ford dealer had a handful of Mondeos. But these were outside, nothing inside.  :-\

They did have lots of crappy looking SUVís like a Mokka  :(

No idea what the little Ford SUV was, but looked equally crap!

General Discussion Area / Big thanks to Serek
« on: 20 January 2018, 20:09:37 »
For sorting my 3.2ís sills, an excellent job. Really pleased with the result, should keep the old barge going for a few more MOTís.

I joined the forum in 2006 and Serek in 2008 canít believe itís taken until 2018 to actually put a face to the name  :o

Iíll be back though, worth travelling to excellent people  :y

General Car Chat / Abarth 595
« on: 16 January 2018, 13:21:37 »
Talking with my car share buddy on the way in, he must be a bad influence. (he does drive a BMW)

But I quite like the idea of an Abarth 595  :-[

160 odd BHP in something the size of a shoe, completely what I would not normally look at but good value I think....

Often hear one in the car park at work, sound fantastic. (skip to 40s)

Lord Opti should hopefully be happy, it's not diesel  ::)  ;D
