Now it's summer/not going to freeze I can go back to using G101 and water as screenwash! It actually removes the bug splatter unlike the shit screenwash we buy... Gave the blades a good wipe down as well, no more streaky lines! Hoping the G101 will clean my tank out too, it went rancid again, emptied it on the way home, slosh of just water to flush it and now G101. It'll get half a bottle of bleach in it if it does it again/dismantled and cleaned properly

Fwar. Have you got pics of it up anywhere? Ive got the right horn for Toyotas atm.

Here it is.  The camera didn't capture its colour very well - it's more turquoise than that.

There's an advert just been on telly, you can now pay for BP fuel using an app on your phone to save that 60ft walk to the till and back.

Have they now decided that using your phone on a petrol station forecourt will NOT result in an explosion, the size of which would knock the earth off its axis?

I once got yelled at by someone washing the petrol pumps on a little village filling station. I was walking past on the pavement, on the phone. "Gerrover there! Cross over! PETROL!" the mad bint yelled.

Ah, but if you're using an app, is it a phone or is it a mobile computer? Remember Jimmy Carr got off a phone-while-driving charge because his Mr Loophole lawyer told the court he'd been recording a joke...

It's a phone. The law was changed after Carr got off.

The drink drive offence for having keys in your pocket etc is “drunk in charge of a motor vehicle” - using a mobile phone when parked isn’t the same as when driving.

I'm not sure that it isn't. I'd have to look it up, but memory tells me that the using a moby offence occurs when the engine is running (moving or not makes no difference).

I think parked is defined in the Highway Code as engine off & handbrake on. Interesting one for all those auto drivers who never use the handbrake these days.

I suppose it’s not technically legal to “park” with the engine running (you can be fined for idling unnecessarily in certain areas right?)

You’d need to be stopped somewhere stupid or fail the attitude test for a copper to give a shit though

How many hours have you spent?Premium Search...https://www.youtube....h?v=43t0mycG-eI

Lol, no, the advert I was looking for was for some bank in the late 90s:

Lol, been looking up some old late 90s adverts for a pretty cool advert I last saw around 97/98 related to banking which involved;

...some chap running and getting cornered by some "gangsters" then for some unknown reason they start playing rounders/baseball (it was a UK based advert) and some car windows got smashed. I remember there being a BMW 635i and a P38 Range Rover in the advert, still not found it mind...


I just happened to come across the Ginger XR2 bloke and the advert that went with him. Cheers though ;)
