Oh, and I've set the clock twice on the Pussy in the last fortnight, seeing as the Jaguar designers thought it was fine not to have any kind of automatic setting.  I'm surprised they didn't go the whole hog and make it wind-up.


.... And the drivers mirror is not connected to electric seat position. :-\
Yes, the fact the interior mirror is not on the memory is inexcusable on such a car, when Vauxhall were doing it 25yrs ago.

It's like going back to the dark ages!

Not the car, but I finally got the burger van off the drive and I'm 2,000 better off. A tidy 250 profit on last September's purchase  8).

Thought again about washing 3.2, then thought nah.

Perhaps in August!
The Pussy is minging, inside and out, as the weather was pretty naff in Normandy. So people have dragged mud in on their shoes, and the bodywork is caked.

Now do I take it to Tesco today, or my usual MK Kosovans on Tuesday when I need to go into the office.

Due to building work, holidays and other projects just had no time. It does get hoovered though inside, but considering outside has not been washed since late last year. It still looks quite good!

When the W140 S Class was release in '91 if you had memory front seats, you could adjust the interior mirror from the switch  8)

Unfortunately people were stupid and still adjusted it by hand, breaking the mechanism ::)

So when they face lifted it*, one of the negative changes was reverting to a manual interior mirror, although its  position was still memory controlled if memory seats were fitted. Which is nice.

Pretty much when the Omega started in '95...

Buy car, adjust mirror to suit, sell car. Easy.

 Took the Monaro out to a show yesterday.
Had a Helmet in a diesel golf sitting so close to my rear that I could only see half his windscreen in my rear view mirror.
He tried to push me wide at a roundabout and then sat right on my bumper again. I disappeared quite rapidly once the traffic cleared

Another 170 miles on the company hack that is the X152, must have a good 1000+ miles in one now.

Dry country roads certainly make for a very involved and rewarding drive!  :-* :-*

Started the Battlebus, as it was in the way (on the driveway!!).  It took some effort, almost catching on one, then 2, then the 3rd caught and rattled its way into life, and the 4th caught.

The smog is incredible, shame none of the neighbours had the washing out.
