There was an advisory notice not to apply external power to BMW over a few years but AFAIK that was revoked

Having driven my bosses several times I can confirm that it will go like a scalded cat! Itís also quite a pleasant place to be :y

(Although admittedly, his is chipped)

As for everything else - sorry to hear of your tumble Nige... Perhaps next time a little more tonic with your gin? :D

Stay well and enjoy the new steed

Wife's astra went into Vx for a service yesterday, £249.

Couldn't you have done it for her with 20% family discount ?  ;D
And get my hands dirty do some work? Behave yourself.

 :-X ::)

Sorry, Al, it's past banter and abuse now. It's more pity.  ;D

Get a blue badge to deal with the council ones :-X

Difficult these days even if you have a disability.  My condition is covered by the disability act but as I can walk 200m unaided I dont qualify for a blue badge.  Admittedly I dont need it all the time, just when I need to rush to the bathroom without worrying about getting a ticket.

Iím sure youíre aware but you need to keep an eye on the situation.

Regularly.  No change to my local authority qualification criteria, yet.

It should be coming Nationwide soon... Hopefully  ::)

Regarding Tunnie getting a haircut - remember that his employer has an on site barber, so they positively encourage people to get their hair cut during work hours. ;)
So do we if you work in webbed finger land (lazydocker country).  However, the "barbers" there would make me feel uncomfortable if they started running their 6 fingers through my hair.

Stop exaggerating!

Itís Norfolk folk who have 6 fingers :D ;D

Omega General Help / Re: LPG in our omega
« on: 03 February 2019, 09:49:06 »
Having an estate makes it easier as you can put the tank in the spare wheel well  ;)

Although to get a decent sized tank in there you have to do a little bit more than just drop it in ;)

To answer the OPís question. My first Omega did around 75k trouble free miles, my second did about 70k and was running fine when Bambi jumped out ::)

Iíll be very surprised if they donít have a clause in the contract to confirm their right to change terms with 90 days notice  :-X

As for legality... Itís probably legal, even though unethical, but perhaps it is being put in place for repeat offenders

£350 sounds like a full fat dealer price even for an AGM battery. I would have thought a Varta or Bosch equivalent is about half that.
ECP reckon this is about £70 discount:

Silly money for a battery. :-\

Yet here you can get the same spec for £87 or slightly more :-X ::)

We were totally screwed from the day the referendum was wonn by lies and deceit.  ::)

May has done the best she could get... Could Corbin or Boris the Buffoon have done any better? I seriously doubt either of them could negotiate a party in a brewery :-X

Like many, Iím fed up with the scaremongering BS and just want it over with. Revoking Article 50 will be as bad or worse than any deal/no deal Brexit as the EU will recognise that they still have the upper hand  ;)
