Heinz beans are soggy shite.
Whilst I accept they are not the caviar that a Lord like you lives on, if you're going to eat a bean, it has to be Beanz. They are by far the best baked beans by some margin.  And given that I singlehandedly keep Heinz going, I do consider myself a bean connoisseur

Branston Baked Beans are the best by far 8) 8) :D ;)
I wouldn't feed them to a dog.

I foolishly bought a tray of them when Beanz were out of stock.  I tried 2 cans on the off chance the first was off, but they tasted just like Tesco Value 9p per can ones. The dustmen took the other 22 cans away.

That bad?.......'fookin ell'. ;)
If Branson was the only beans available, I'd eat more veg. A lot more veg.  I certainly wouldn't be eating that shit again ;)

So Mr Beanz had better keep all the machines running.

Itís a 2011 facelift XF 3.0. V6 diesel portfolio beautiful car.
Methinks his fuel computer is telling porkies, as no way will he get that sort of MPG unless driving everywhere at 50mpg.

My XJ - same engine, same weight - averages 32.5mpg over several tankfuls. Manually calculated, as the fuel computer is worse than a cheap watch.

I don't particularly like Boris and I certainly don't trust him. However, if you are familiar with the facts of the story, I don't think you could fail to conclude that he was setup, he realised it was happening, so walked away and left the bloke talking to himself.
And in the process showed himself to those he is trying to negotiate with that he's just a little be soft and pathetic.  Great job.
.                               Soft and pathetic, where on earth did you conjure that from, he wasnít there! He turned it down,  he did not appear, he failed to turn up, he avoided and scuppered a fore planned situation which would have done him more harm than good.   Thatís his job!
Which has made him look weak and pathetic.  Jeez.

This is tempting for the money....

Thought I thought you were after a V8 petrol. Not a V6 tractor

 :-\

That caught my eye, still also like that XJ posted as well. I can hardly deploy full power of 3.2 on my commute so V8 would be a bit wasted. But still considering options.
A 2l tractor XF will probably have nearly the same power as a 3.2 Omega, if the opens up cheaper options (though I think at that age, the 4 pot diesels are a bit wheezy)

The 3l petrols from that era might be cost effective (not looked lately) as well.

Minor issues, itís the head thatís gone.  ;D
Wow. Never seen that on *ANY* V6 Omega.  Not sure how you diagnosed that without removal. Impressive.

;)


If coolant is getting in the cylinder, I would have thought it was far more likely to be the head gasket, rather than the head.


TBH, anything in your current price range suggested in recent threads will need some tinkering - generally the higher it depreciates, the more it will need. A much newer car can be better, but you will get hit on the depreciation yourself - whether you think that's more cost effective than paying someone to fix what is a fairly minor fault on the Omega (that you CBA to diy) depends on what you plan on buying.

and not a £100+ tyre you had the week before
No, I had that twice in a month about a year ago, though each tyre was well over £200 then.  Oh, and one wheel, which was considerably more :(
plenty of wheels on ebay  ;D
as a commuter car, is it worth swapping the wheels for some standard 16s  :-\ very cheap ,
 or free because I'm the only one who puts the locking studs on  :D ;D
the condition of the roads is shocking,pot holes and debris  ,
and stupid Builders in rusty flatbed transits with bits falling off and junk falling out aint helping  :D ;D
I was referring to the Shaguar. 18" is smallest, and they cost a fortune.


If TB needs steels for tbe, there's 2 here.
Cheers, though between us, I think the Brackley gang are covered for wheels and tyres :y

A great dish that I may have to give up :(. One of my faves....

Indeed, that looks suspect to me.  And we all know how much I trust eBay sellers.

Certainly the misfire at cold start with coolant loss is indicitive of water getting in the cylinder/s :-X
Surely that would lead to excessive pressure in coolant system, seeing as cylinder pressure are way more than coolant pressure.
4 stroke engine
suck -cylinder pressure negative  ;) sucks coolant too
squash
bang
blow
With the squeeze and subsequent bang resulting in proper pressure

Which would explain leakage at cap if its venting constantly
That thought had crossed my mind, but had credited the useless student with a bit more noggin....

Where do the OOF Beanz connoisseurs stand on the subject of butter bean?  :-\

Asking for a friend...  ::)
There are standard Beanz. Beanz with those nasty sausages in (but go well on a baked spud, or on toast). Beanz with the chilli beans in.  And that's it. End of.

A 'standard ' bean is a haricote bean  ;)
Wrong. Standard beans are just Beanz.  I care not for the recipe, as long as my Beanz Meanz Heinz.
