It was fast very fast 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, but oh so boring.
Clearly not trying hard enough ;D.  Did it have Ludicrous, not all do.

Washed both of them this morning.  Suspect with all the harvesting going on, it will look every bit as bad by the morning...

And dont get too pissed. Wake up in the morning thinking " those 10 pints of Guinness I drunk last night have given me a really sore arse for some reason".  ;D
In my experience, gay people have pretty finely tuned gaydars, so won't come on to straight people like that.  Although, to quote one of my mates with said sexual orientation, he will often point somebody out and tell me that that guy is gay, he just hasn't realised yet ;D

Spent yesterday underneath a mates woodworm nest, trying to set the suspension so the chassis is level-ish.

I wouldn't feed her to the dog.
I was contemplating that if I was pissed enough to consider it, would I still be alive?

Do you know if it can be permanently disabled? I'd be up for that. :y
I've been told how to do it, I forgot to do hers when I had the trim off (as her stop-start has never switched the car off, probably due to shagged battery), but reckon its doable without removing trim.

I'll email you a pic :y

3 button fobs are easy to repair, though the replacement rubbers from Ching Chong Chinaland can be a bit hard, if yours is in a bad way.

Switches are large enough surface mount that they can be done with a standard iron with a fine tip.

Battery holder - if this has come away, my standard repair method is to remove it completely, and repair the broken leg by soldering a piece off the end of a resistor etc to what's left to make a new leg.  Solder this back to the board, and I usually add a bit of glue between the battery holder and the PCB to give it more mechanical strength.

Top case rubbers, if they are trashed, no option but to replace the top half of the case.

Be what you want to be...

I have a fair few gay mates, hence a finely tuned Gaydar, and gay pubs and clubs are usually a good, fun night out, if you're not on the pull that is

You might find it does some "mild hybrid" deeper cycling of the battery than is normal for a wet cell battery. That might involve charging it more aggressively than would be normal for a wet battery. Only one way to find out, though. The world isn't going to end, at any rate.
Her battery sounds like its struggling, and I have a reasonable battery from my XJ in the garage, so its a no cost option to do something until batteries become more sensibly priced...   ...or I have to bite the bullet and splash down the wrong side of 150 for an AGM one :(

Stop-start gives the battery a work out - potentially causing a reduction in battery life
That piece of shit will be disabled whatever ;)

Wrong way round Rae, can I drop in a non AGM batt into a car designed to tale an AGM?

Yes, but you like a Signum as well....

No hope for some!

Quickie question...

Can I use a non AGM battery in a car that was factory supplied with an AGM one?

So, as in my experience, and male trolley dolly equivalents set off my gaydar, is Dr Gollum trying to tell us something....?
