Mean to post this over weekend, but got sidetracked...

We notched up our 1.8mth post.

Not sure if I'm impressed or saddened by that ;D

General Discussion Area / I'm detecting a little frostiness...
« on: 05 July 2017, 17:29:09 » Mrs TB came up with my (late) cup of tea.

I'm laying in the bath, and she smacks it down, and walks off.  I'm betting that she somehow makes sitting in that queue on the M40 since 3:30 is somehow all my fault ::)

Omega General Help / V6 Exhaust questions
« on: 24 June 2017, 20:54:08 »
Changing centre sections, unsurprisinging 3 or the 4 bolts sheared.  As always, drilling is not really playing the game, these bolts are like bloody diamond to get through.

Worth removing the cats, to do on the bench?  Will it need new gaskets (2 left in UK warehouses, so ordered them, but unlikely to be here before Wed, as the order wont actually get processed until Monday)? Sods law, car is needed this week :(

Query number 2. Should I, when looking down the Irmscher backbox, be able to see all the way through?

General Car Chat / Well, thats inconvenient.

To remove CDL from Jag, the window has to come out. Sounds an arse of a job.

The Imrscher backbox on TBE is the usual Irmscher twin outlet affair, one outlet each side.  The O/S pipe attaches to the pipe coming out of the backbox silencer, just behind the tank, using a metal ring, and an exhaust clamp that clamps both halves of the exhaust to this ring.

What is the ring called, as TBE's is probably somewhere along the M40 :(


General Car Chat / Thumbs up to Serek
« on: 12 June 2017, 17:03:38 »
Managed to fit me in at short notice to sort out the A/C on TBE - whilst it was able to cool car if not too warm outside, it was pretty hopeless in the hot temps we had a couple of weeks ago, so was suspecting low gas. As its Mrs TB's car, it has to be done promptly to keep the grumbling to a minimum!

424g came out, both valves replaced - the front one was suspect last time it was regassed, so no surprises that it now showed clear signs of leaking - and the correct 950g in.

So thanks to Serek, for fitting me in at short notice, on what was clearly a busy Saturday morning :y

General Discussion Area / Outage, now
« on: 29 May 2017, 12:04:13 »
Stupid, poxy, wanky Netgear crap :@

Need a complete outage immediately for about 60-90 mins to reboot the switch :@

General Discussion Area / The heat
« on: 25 May 2017, 18:59:26 »
Of one of the servers.

It got a bit close for comfort to its thermal threshold today.  Tomorrow is supposed to be hotter.

General Car Chat / A month with the big black pussy
« on: 06 May 2017, 19:16:46 »
Had it over a month, though obviously couldn't drive for part of that due to being unable to walk, let alone drive.

What I like:
Brilliant, effortless, superb mile cruncher
Heated/Cooled seats
Dual View screen (so she can watch TV or DVD, I see Nav/radio etc screen)
In car entertainment, both sound quality and connectivity options
Rear blind
Blind spot monitor
Jag Voice (it actually works)
Phone integration
Adjustable bolsters in front seats
Memories for passenger seat
Nav junction map comes up on dash, replacing fuel/temp gauges
Wiper sensitivity adjustable
Music streaming from phone via BT
Gracenote database (but doesn't look like its updatable)
Keyless entry/exit/start

What I dislike:
Poor visibility/high window line
Rear styling
Mediocre boot space
Its too long for small parking spaces!
Can't hear incoming text messages on paired phone
Doesn't remember seat heat/cool settings
Central rear view mirror not on the seat memory system
Nav junction map on dash doesn't show distance to manoeuvre, so still have to glance at central nav screen to check distance
10s to fully disable TC.  The moment has usually passed by then, so no more BP antics
Can't wake up gayPod when its gone into standby, so have to rummage for iPod and wake it manually
Rear seats can't fold down for through loads
I really miss the little cubby hole under light switch in Omega

What I think is gimmicky
Quad zone climate control. Why?
Proximity switches for glovebox and internal lights

I reckon it'll be staying, I quite like it :)

General Car Chat / Why tracking is a waste of time on an Omega

"4 wheel laser aligned" 6 months ago, following TRE change

Tread depth is 4.5mm all over, just shoulder wear.

General Discussion Area / Pussies

Or even a pussy in a pussy.

Sorry to disappoint Opti and Jimbob, who'll be like safari park chimps reading the title.

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Breaking 1998 MFL MV6 Z147
« on: 14 April 2017, 10:31:18 »
All parts available. Any parts that prevent the car from being driven, or make it look excessively untidy/unsafe (shared driveway, young children next door) may not be available for a few days.

Looking to have car collected by scrappy in just over a week  :'(

Doors 30 each, collection only.
From a FL, but in Z147 (more common Star Silver for non FL cars), with FL strips, including all door electrics and Bose speaker.  OSR unavailable due to a big dent ;D

MV6 Sports leather 75, collection only.
MFL black leather with working heaters all round, including loom/relay/switches for rear seats. Drivers seat has the usual wear on the side bolster through repeated getting in and out.

'Hard touch' switch set, 12 posted
MFL cars had the 'soft touch' coatings that weren't that durable.  I managed to upgrade mine to the 'hard touch' used on PFL, which don't wear, including the hard to source TC (as virtually all PFL had TC button to left of radio), not in the line above.  This is for the complete set except sunblind (which will be sold with blind) running across top of radio. The ECO backlight is intermittent, so probably best to just swap the top over with your existing soft touch one.

Rear sunblind and parcel shelf, 30 collection only
Dark grey (charcoal?), with Bose speaker grills

Climate panel, 20 posted
From experience, I won't guarantee the backlight bulbs - they have a habit of blowing after being in use for some time, then being chucked around by Mr Postie.  I'd always recommend replacing all 5 bulbs before refitment anyway.

General Discussion Area / Thats embarrassing...
« on: 12 April 2017, 17:22:31 »
Here I am, laying in bath, she's brought me up my cuppa and a Cadbury Mini Roll.

Just dropped a large chunk of mini roll in the bath. Looks like I've shat myself.
