Six points on your licence in Spain for lobbing a fag end out of your car.

General Car Chat / Electrical fault
« on: Yesterday at 18:38:53 »
Just been out and had a harrowing experience in my old 4x4.

36C and going on one of my various daily off road routes, and the car ground to a halt with no electrics. No dash lights, no lights on the alarm code panel. Waited a few seconds and it restarted as normal and got me home.

I hate intermittent faults and until I have confidence in the car, I wont be going anywhere dodgy that would need another 4x4 to recover me.

I am hoping it is just a loose battery terminal. Battery is only six months old.

Any suggestions for what to look for in the morning please? Vehicle is a Suzuki Vitara .

Why didn’t he just go up a few yards and turn round!

Yes it would save us a fortune too. People who do crimes such as that should be given to the parents who would ensure a nice passing. Would be a good deterrent too.

Would that be like Sharia Law ?

Maybe there ought to be a two tier prison system with a special place for evil twisted folk on life sentences. No TV, mobile phones just books like an adventourous choose your own path novella and Finnegans wake.

I think the key thing for a a team with finance trying to break into the top 3 is a top driver with experience. Can’t see Ricciardo doing that, Lando has shown him up.  Or Bottas - he is planted.

No Mick Schumacher it is.

You are off the f1 team then. Sorry. Plenty of other teams for you.

Good on him retiring at the end of the season.

Who are Aston going to get to replace him?

I suspect Mick Schumacher but think that Alonso would be a better fit. Then when Alonso retires, Lance Stroll and the car might just have developed to the point where he could win races or even a championship.

What do the team think?

Drove down to Bognor Regis this aft (sat nav didn't like the look of the M25, so took us past some place called Brackley) in wifey's Astra. Mostly motorway but a few A and B roads. 65.3mpg over 250 miles.
Don't say you're not jealous, Opti.

Air con on?

I suspect the party faithful faced with Rishi and Penny will vote for Penny.

The Rishi personal finances will rear its head again.

What is the average typical Conservative party voter that will decide? Middle aged , well off, white?

Maybe more Mordaunt stories will surface , perhaps dug up by the Rishi camp.

Whoever gets in, I suspect they will last less than two years. ( Blair/Brown)

We did our good deed of day today. Saw a guy broken down 40C , waiting for recovery. He was Red in the sun but sensibly on roadside for safety. Went back and gave him a cold brick of orange juice.

What pregnancy?

I agree. Renewables and better insulation and maybe turn the thermostat down as the Germans may have to. Better than opening up coal mines and extending lives of coal fire power stations?
May well be academic if Nordstream 1 never reopens

Plus I dare say most of the kit comes from China…….
