Wheel trims suggest a LX which normally came with the 1.8CVH. I'm amazed it's ever moved under it's own power.

Surely that would leak like a sieve where the camper body sits in the boot.

Bet it is still drier than my 75 boot.

I gave the crv a service today

phew, that was close - maybe I should buy a new oil bucket :)

Then my mate came round to show off his new Audi A3 (2litre petrol turbo) - it's bloody quick but what made me grin was that before he left the house, his wife specifically told him he was not allowed to give me a shot - she must think I'm some kind of lunatic behind the wheel :)

Perhaps they thought you were asking about springs for the ejector seat.

I've asked that question a few times to people The springs for a pluriel model are higher rates. Due to the weight of all that detachable roof crap.

Indeed it was, a simple time for choices of parts. Unless it was French.

Today whilst sorting wiper stock I found 4 valeo vm6 rear blades. They fit XM's and xantias only with some offset pin mount design.

Maybe one day someone will buy one!

Which reminded me of this one I came across on an audit of one of our French sites a few years ago. For some reason the management didn't wish to discuss the reason they needed it around the back of one of the production buildings.

I have a massive file to copy and paste into another. It’s a list of about a quarter of a million phone numbers!

The file isn’t on excel so I can’t just select and copy the column, it’s on notepad for some reason (some people think it is cutting edge, Ho hum) so I need to sit here holding shift and page up. For a long time.

Got bored with that so in true autoshite fashion I came up with a cheap engineering fix. One bolt on the shift key, another on the page up key, and a phone resting on each to maintain the pressure. I can now sit and watch The Protectors instead!
