I think those clips are one way use only,probably easier to cut it off and fit a jubilee clip instead

The auto quite suits the torque of the weasel engine tbh so not a bad drive :y

She was doomed from the start, don't see how anyone else would have brokered a deal that differed much.

Agreed,can't see how anyone else would want to do it either tbh :-\

real cars with all 3 pedals (as GOD intended) repel such demonic possession  ;D

Because DMF's, release bearings, slave, cylinders, master cylinders, bearings in the box and the clutch NEVER fail and NEVER cost thousands to replace?

Wonder if anyone with an M32 gearbox will agree it doesn't needs a head-spinning cross inserting green puke removing priest?


And back to the original question, not with Omega tyres, Vectra 17s were 215 or 225 width as OEM, the Omega tyres will make it handle worse than it does  :D

My posh vectra has 235/45/17.
Sorry for being different.

Mine too,yours an Aero too BG ?


   9-3 2.0t vector anniversary estate.

A mere 2.0 ::) ;D

we have a Landrover camper, ex ambulance converted to camper,
it means we can get off the beaten track,
3 weeks last year up to the artic circle we spent 4 nights on campsites, the rest of the time, we stayed in woodland clearings and out of the way places.

That sounds awesome!  8)  :y
Personally, I'd prefer a tent and a spade.

You mean a shovel  ??? ::)

It's a Vectra, there is a lot wrong with those god awful, uncomfortable, heaps of crud. I'd rather take public transport!

 Fortunately the Signum is a completely different car. No shared parts. :)


So is a Saab. ::)

Of course ::) ;D

You can assume if it was a cheap fix, the "seller"/mate/garage/whatever would have done it to get a better price.

Maybe not if the old boy isn't around to foot the bill if it doesn't sell

Taken it up to Bolton for an outlaws family funeral. As I am persona non grata, the muts and I are off for a half hour walk while the car charges.



How is the Leccy Golf going ?

Could well be a bargain if coil pack and plugs sort it,I'd be concerned if its been driven far like that as unburnt fuel into the Cat will not have done it much good.

will fargo near me

Crikey,I managed to upload a picture ::)
Looks tidy :)

Got some interior pics, now you know how to upload pics?

I can't  have it till June 1st but I will then :y

Drove the BMW to a garage and test drove a 2007 Range Rover Sport TDV8.. as we pulled back up on the dealer forecourt and parked up, the electric handbrake let out the most awful screaming noise, threw up a fault code along with a "low coolant" fault and an oil slick on the floor and the dealer said "You see, you can really tell this one has been looked after"  :o ::) ;D

Thats a circa 700 fix on that,same set up as a Disco 3-4 :-X

I'm not playing devils advocate, Henry, I am genuinely interested as I may be after a big estate soon.

They are a lot of car for no money :y
