I wonder if it would perform better or worse without the multirams, and if that is part of the issue  :-\

Cool car nevertheless  8)

Originals are either 16 or 18mm (the latter rings a bell), aftermarket could be anything from 16-19 mm ;)

Anyway.....time for my run. :)
You've got the runs? You should see a doctor.

Doctors are often the worst at diagnosing their own symptoms.  ::)
And why you should never by a car from a mechanic :D

General Car Chat / Re: Stainless steel system for the RRS
« on: 06 October 2021, 16:47:25 »
I had a stainless steel exhaust system fitted to our first Subaru Forester several years ago by Longlife cost around 400 , when the Range Rover was being serviced in August I had a look at the system which is the original one while it was up on the ramps & thought it was looking a bit tired in places, had a quote today from Longlife for it, seems reasonable at 575 with a lifetime guarantee  my Xmas pressie to myself.

Seems very reasonable, Mick. It's important that the company is long established, we all know how easy it is to give out lifetime guarantees when they won't be around in twelve months.

The clue is in the name Uncle STEMO!  ;)                                                                                           ;D
I've had plenty of 'love you long time' promises that didn't materialise  ;D

Not as many as Lord Opti I'd wager!  ;D

The 'Love you long time' guarantee tends to come from young ladies who are in fact  young ladyboys.

Is your great uncle trying to tell you something, Tig? ::)

I have no experience of this.  Perhaps you could elucidate M'lud?  :)
Can't you get arrested for doing that Tig? :D

For doing something in public with the same last three letters you can..... ;D
Only if someone complains/is offended :-X

    There's an exceptional starting/charging guide in the Maintenance Guides... If you have access to an assistant and a multimeter, follow the guide through.  :y

    Although my money is still on the battery.

    Slowly but surely thanks, finally unfurloughed... So there's that :y

Sunrise air temperature in Maspalomas is 21C...

Hardly 'cold'.

Also, you didn't answer my question... If you cycle the key a couple of times, does it start instantly?

Is ECO showing on the display?

If it is press it again and report back.

LO is merely a temperature setting and has the sum total of an empty beer can to do with whether the aircon is on or not.

ECO is not showing, air con is switched on.
:y just checking, as you wouldn't be the first to make that mistake  ;)

Low pressure is likely the issue. Probably the condenser given that it's primary function is to stop the radiator getting dirty.

Primary fuses live in the box above the battery.

However, if the battery isn't taking a charge, you probably need a new one. Find the receipt and take it back.

I believe it's press to go and lift off to stop :-\ How quickly you do either depends on how much it reacts... I suppose, being fairy dust powered, it relies on regenerative forces to slow it significantly...
I can see a hundred situations where that might go horribly wrong  ;D
Lifting off on an icy bend could be fun :D

I ordered my repeat prescription a few days early. When it never arrived at the chemist, I phoned the doctors to ask why. She told me, as it not due yet, it would be sent to the pharmacy in two day and reminded me not to request it too early. I said "You know us old boys, we do like to stock up". She said "Yeah.....there might be another war".  ;D
Sarky cow.

I'm medication free. Living a blameless life seems to have it's advantages. :)
I think you mean that there's nothing you can blame anyone else for... ::)

Everyone has forgotten now, but remember the fertiliser plants that shut down a couple of weeks ago that would have caused a shortage of CO2, that in turn would have caused chaos across several sectors, and it was all because of Brexit?  ;)  ::)

You won't see it on the BBC, but a fertiliser plant has shut down in Austria due to the cost of gas...... and Brexit obviously!  ;D
Austrians are a funny bunch, but they do have Melissa Naschenweng who is nice :-*
