General Car Chat / Re: Self-levelling Xenon question :-)

If it is the levelling sensor your after then it is only available from your Vauxhall dealer as a complete unit. One at the front and one at the rear. I think each one is different.

You cannot get the individual components, eg arms, sensor, brackets etc.

They are not cheap! Last one I bought was around 55+

General Car Chat / Trade Card Expiry
« on: 15 October 2010, 11:28:00 »
Hello, as a regular user of TC for business use I was surprised to note that my current membership card had expired at the end of July 2010 and I had not received a replacement.

I presumed that a replacement would be sent but to avoid any future embarrassment at the parts department I rang the guy in charge of Trade Club (Vauxhall Luton) to see if he could send me a replacement.

He was not surprised and suggested that they were not sending out new ones until the new Trade Book in 2011.

On visiting my local dealer they happily processed my order as usual but I was ready for a "battle" if they had said no.

Has anyone received a replacement TC card recently?

Yep. Got mine earlier this week. Wonder if we will get an updated parts book? ::)

Got my new Trade Card this weekend with funky new design. :D

Mine had also expired last year but parts dept still happy to give TC prices. (I spend enough with them!!!)

I wonder if we will get a book or is it going on-line?

Currently run two Omega's (1998/99) a S-Type Jag (1999) and the wife's Honda Civic (1997 model).

I do all the servicing myself. The Omega's have lasted well and other than the normal service items the tyres don't last long.

The Jag's off the road at the moment with a few suspension problems. Trying to pluck up the courage to price up (and pay) for the parts. :o

The Jag costs are very expensive compared to the Omega and they don't do discounts like Vauxhalls with the TC card.

The wife's Honda (bubble shape) has been an excellent buy. Bought it as a one year old and hardly anything has gone wrong other than the normal service items. :)

At the same time I had the Rover 400 (same shape and year as the Honda Civic).

I was always a Rover/Leyland fan in the past and drove plenty of minis, maestro's, Rover 200's.

However, this was a disaster. >:(

 * head gasket went twice
 * alternator replaced
 * starter motor replaced
 * two exchange gearboxes
 * two new radiators,
 * three new clutches,
 * new air con system,
 * two sets of shock absorbers all round
 * rusty body panels (needed cutting out and weding)
 * rusty roof
 * and plenty of other issues.

No wonder they went under!! A shame really because it was a nice car to drive when it was running.

I have always used Gliptone on my S type Jaguar and as SMD confirms I have been a little disappointed.

The "experts" on the Jag forum like the product (Gliptone) alot but the cleaner appears do do nothing and there is hardly any dirt on the application cloth which is what I would expect. The car is not that clean!
Also there is very little foaming (don't know if that is good or bad?).

The conditioner is a little better and gives the car a "leather" smell but this does not last very long.

I have also tried it on Omega leather and the results have been similar. It is not a cheap product and would like some advice on other products out there which might give better results.

Oh. Forgot to add that Chris Ashton is a convert from Rugby League and old boy of Wigan Warriors  (as was Jason Robinson - remember him?).

I have seen Ashton score many a try at the JJB stadium. You have not seen the best of him yet.
Just wait!

I am a big Rugby League fan and I have spent all day watching 4 matches one after another on Sky!!!!

It's called "Millennium Magic" and this all happens at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Guess what? It continues tomorrow with 3 more matches. Fantastic.

That brings back memories. Was a student at Cardiff (UWIST) University back in the late seventies and lived at some halls of residence out at Barry.

Spent many a weekend exploring the site. An amazing experience and the steam preservation industry has a lot to thank Dai Woodham for. :)

General Discussion Area / Passed MOT
« on: 07 October 2010, 20:52:35 »
Just passed the MOT without any advisories. It's like waiting for exam results!!! Don't you just hate it?
So another Omega goes on for another year.
