Had four Accelera tyres fitted and it passed the MOT.
A couple of advisories though. First one regarding inside of discs showing some corrosion. Standard Omega issue which I wont panic about.
Second one concerning rust visible at ends of sills, but unable to investigate due to plastic covers. Sill looked pretty good last time I looked (less than a year ago), but I shall investigate (might have to wait until after the Winter) and do any repairs that need doing.
If its bad it will be an excuse to fire up the MIG welder.  :)
A pass is a pass, but pop the arch liners and sill covers off ;)

Currently getting 15 for throwing pallets out of a 26t and I drive further just going to work than I do at work ::)

Although RM trunking is appealing at 22.50, but there's greater odds of me voting Labour than having a job at the end of January if I signed up for that :D

675mm ie 690 standard minus 15mm ::)

New top mounts would restore most of the front loss as they compress over time...

Insert the tools and eject the CD cartridge and any cassette. Then insert your fingers deep into the cassette slot and the CDC slot and slowly pull whilst trying to move the unit side to side.

Slowly and smoothly should see it removed with no damage. The idea being to carefully ease it out without pulling the front off ;)

All of which has absolutely SFA to do with the central locking :D

Thought he was a lorry mechanic anyway so surely he needed a license for that. :-\
Not necessarily...

Breathers vented to atmosphere and in most cases were an open tube :D

In context... VW think that a litre every 1000km (625 miles) is acceptable... That's, roughly, a pint every 312 miles... Hardly progress ;)

How about the 'drivers' who push the brake pedal just enough to put the lights on but not slow down? Then, sometime later you have no indication that they've started slowing down.
.....

Could this be caused by modern cars cruise control 'with brake function'?  To maintain a constant speed the vehicle will sometimes back off to stay within the 3mph range of your chosen speed and I believe that the law dictates that it must show brake lights when doing so. Our Beemer certainly does this as I tested it after a conversation with TB some time back.
Likewise my E Class which could shed speed quite impressively using the cruise control switch and Teslas with max regen set... these will slow from 70 to 40* just by lifting off suddenly and Volvo trucks fitted with Ishift and VEB+ which will slow the truck from 56 to almost stopped, again by simply lifting off. Even when loaded 8)

New cars are becomingly increasingly crap to look at, but some of the driver aid tech is very impressive...
.

Don't just lift off on a damp road, !!!!!!!!!! With veb on 3.....
;D or :o

But agreed, that has the potential to end very badly...
