I simply avoid it now you have to @rse around online. I was happy to chuck some cash in the bucket when they had toll booths. Their loss. ::)

Large gendarme presence at end of Rouen toll motorway today. We got pulled in our Spanish reg vehicle.

Purpose of travel. We are taking illegal migrants to the UK . We were waived through!

54,000 taken in by Spain this last year. Very few stay, most use the travel ticket they are given once pronounced well, to travel out of Spain to Northern Europe.

That's fairly obvious. Rouen is the @rsehole of the universe, so getting the hell out of there.. ;D

Which is easier said than done, as it seems to have some sort of force field around it that deflects any motor vehicles off their intended route and round the ring road endlessly. Or maybe the signs are just rubbish?
Rouen is where another tomtom fell out the window, due to its insistence on going round in circles in the city centre. At rush hour.
Not just me then?

Much jealous.

It does mean that Kitty has to go
all that work washing out the exhaust gone to waste  ;D

The neighbour might be buying it in which case it won't be going far
Have you told him the space on the driveway will come in handy for another boat? :y

Shhhh Mrs G might read this!
Oh, sorry. Of course, you've already got boats a boat. Why on earth would you need another? ::)

I believe the correct response to any correspondence on that matter is "Que?".

Free parking?

In Lundun?

That'll never catch on :o

If you have an electric car you get 4 hours free while your car is plugged in you charge it :y

Hmm. <Ponders attaching a socket to the Omega. Doesn't have to be connected to anything.> :y

Wozzatthen ???

That resolution went straight out of the window on NYE... Finally called time at 1 am ;D

Worst month on the calendar and some masochists try and tackle it without alcohol. ::)

Nah it's the best month on the calendar as we don't have to think about Christmas for another 8 months!  ;)
I manage to avoid thinking about it at Christmas, on the whole. :y

Just read in vauxhall workshop manuals online, and it seems the heated rear screen is a part of the alarm system. That would then probably be what set it of and why it wont fully arm now.

Ahh, yes, I have a vague recollection that the heated screen is connected to the alarm on an estate.

.....so the remains of a chocolate yule log  coming out of one end are being replaced by chocolate going in the other end.

Sexy Shami will never let you shag her if she learns of your 'toilet habits'

I don't know. Once she's been smeared in yule log she'll be up for it, I reckon. :o

Omega General Help / Re: 2.6 , which cams are better for low end?
« on: 03 January 2019, 16:48:26 »
In my very limited experience of helping out with a few 2.5 / 2.6 cam swaps you will lose low end torque for perhaps a little more go at higher revs.

For more torque you need more cubes. Nothing else will do it and more cam lift and intake breadth above factory gives you less intake swirl at low revs so less performance.
