Black pussy.

Some like it. Some don't.
Tried it. Once...

You had to edit that?  ???  ::)  Are you sure?  ;D
Yeah, I didn't go back :D

No, the answer is to build and maintain the latest EMU's to a far higher standard so the chances of them breaking down is relagated to "rare". ;)

Right. So we can neatly file that under "Never going to happen because profits" and move on. Next!
We'll have to subsidise it.

Think of the road improvements if all subsidies went there instead.

So to build extra road space for even more cars and lorries to clog up, instead of creating additional rail space to operate faster trains to move even more thousands of people and tonnes of freight? ::)

Creating that extra road space over the decades I have witnessed has just not worked, but with all the current transitional difficulties the railways are shifting even more passengers than ever before, most of whom do arrive on time or near enough.  Unlike driving from the south east to, say, The Lake District and maybe arriving some time after 11 hours of "parked" driving.

In any case, after reading what others think is going to happen soon to the private motor car, we will all be grateful for an advanced, high tech, joined up public transport system! ;D ;D ;)

Do you have a wiring diagram, eg Haynes book of 'dangle berries', as I'm not near mine.

The only problem with chicken shit (A40) canyon is when you're re testing your just WIM'd setup and as you round a corner descending you find some amoeba overtaking on the non-dual lane ascending the hill...
And its too slow, hence I use the wider part, commonly called the M40....
Where's the fun in that!  ::) :D

Many years ago the Police used to wait on the bottom of said M40 canyon (just before the Watlington turn) waiting for us red Cavalier SRi drivers to descend at errr the national speed limit.  :-X
A bit like the fikkers waiting at the bottom of the 3 mile long 9 mile hill on the A14. With their florry markings covered over with van colour magnetic strips.  Hardy playing the white man (other skin tones available, if you are a do-gooder).

I'm sorry to say, I doubt I'll be buying another Vauxhall. Being owned by Pug/Citroen is enough to put me off, add in the lack of trade club and the uninspiring line up of models and that's me out. I'm not a fan of VAG cars, the owners are enough to put me off. The over complex suspension setup and the fact that they just aren't that reliable. Also I hate offset steering, a lot of VAG cars come with this back aching feature.

Personally, I would drive a Jazz before a Golf. Although if I had a choice, I'd pick a different Honda/Toyota. In fact I've taken a like to the Honda Accord estate.
A good friend has a Honda Accord Estate; he loves it. But it cost him 10,000 against 300 for my Omega estate, and it goes wrong. Not rusting too badly though. It's a big car, and I am looking for something smaller for my family. All Cath, Jonny and Dan need is a 2 seater, easier to park and more economical.

you need to run 2 wires from stalk to display, and 1 wire from stalk to one of the ground/earth studs behind instrument panel

Thanks, can you be more specific on which ones. The brown is ground but which two to the display. There must be some wires already hooked up for this to the display that comes from the head unit.

My Zaffy-A just will not rust or break down, despite my best attempts.  Its annoyingly reliable - as long as I put some electricity in it every few weeks when its unused, it just works, despite the glowplugs being sheared. Its so damn annoying.  Hopefully the new MOT rules will kill it.
first used on or after 1 August 1979 and before 1 July 2008
Maximum smoke value (absorption coefficient) measured under free
acceleration =3.0m-1 or plate value if lower  :y
what new rule will kill it ?
You're so oppsing depressing.

What does it take?  Its got that bad, its outside the house because I CBA to dump it somewhere.
