General Car Chat / Big rise in cost of air con servicing.
« on: 22 March 2019, 22:09:27 »
Has this been discussed on here before? Booked my Vectra in for one today and the guy, (who also did my Desmond :'() says that the cost of the fluid has gone up in price due to EU rationing the amount that can be manufactured to combat climate change. Seems the fluid is very harmful to the environment and if there won,t be enough around some drivers might be disappointed. Anyone else have any thoughts?

When i unlock the car the no. plate lights come on even though the lights are all switched off. Have any owners, past and present, had this?

What the hell is Phil the Greek, aka Duke of Edinburgh, doing driving at 97. Seems he pulled out in front of a car in his tank of a Range Rover and it got pushed onto it,s side. Must have been some hit to do that. Sorry, can,t do linkys.

Omega General Help / What is an A Frame mount
« on: 01 January 2019, 22:26:55 »
Could you wise ones tell me what and where it is in the rear end please.  :y

Before i contact the local scrappie if anyone wants a donor car mine is available.
Good points, nearly new front pipe with cat, (after market) four good Nexen tyres, fronts only weeks old, recent new main rad. almost new battery. Engine and gearbox both good, Starts and runs great, has been serviced regularly and have all the history since i,ve had it and some previous too. Mileage is 145k
Bad bits, car is undriveable, front offside damage, bonnet, wing, slam panel, bumper, headlight with all self levelling and washer mechs all damaged. There is also rear end damage from a previous incident when an idiot left his hand brake off and it rolled into it,(boot lid and bumper).
I am not in a position to break the car so must be removed whole by the buyer. Have put a price of 150 just to comply with forum rules and sorry i cant do pics. If info is reqd pm me. As said, will go to scrap yard early in new year if not sold.

.. an old film called Sapphire on Talking Pictures, made in 1959 and they just wouldn,t  get away now with the absolute racism that pervades through the whole dialogue of the film. Even makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. :o

Programme about Billy Monger, the young race driver who lost both his legs in a crash last year. Might be worth a look.

Saw one of these yesterday for the first time. Looked quite nice. Might be able to afford one in about 12 years time. If i,m still on the planet that is. :D

Sorry can,t do linky but it,s on BBC teletext, science section, that they have run out of cash and the project could be wound up. Shame.

General Car Chat / Front indicators on newer cars
« on: 14 June 2018, 19:31:43 »
Haven,t been on the bike for over a week due to getting over a persistent stomach bug.(Aaah ;D). Anyway, back on today and either my eyes are getting worse or are modern lenses less visible in strong sunlight? Found when crossing over roads from a bike lane, (i always look, that,s how iv,e managed to reach 73 :)) that some of the said indicators are nearly invisible when the sun is straight on the front of the car. Anyone else noticed this?

General Discussion Area / Grisly but poetic justice

Just read on BBC teletext about a poacher in Kruger National Park in S. Africa. He was attacked by a pride of lions and was almost completely devoured. All that was left was his head and some bones. Sorry but can,t do linkys. Must be my gallows humour but i found this slightly amusing. Hopefully it will put other poachers off.
