    The stupid thing is these bands were based on CO2 for emissions reasons – and all the free VED DPF-equipped diesel shitboxes that pump out more NOx and particulates than any V8 petrol beast are still getting free or cheap road tax - and a new car made with zero shits given about CO2 because ££s is £180 a year after the high first few year rates.
    Most Euro 4 petrol cars are cleaner than even the latest Euro 6 diesel in real terms 😕

    Focus will be £255 on next renewal... Was £240 last year and £200/12 months when I bought it in 2019..
    Xsara Picasso will be £305 on next renewal, band H, which was £240/12 months in 2018. 
    I'm used to a fiver a year increase which I thought it always used to be, but it's not looking that way any more. Greedy cunts.

    Well. It’s temporarily fixed. 
     
    Both high/low pipes have been changed, however the front ram pipes are leaking. Ok, not as much as the others were, but still leaking. Can’t afford to replace them so it’ll have to leak ever so slightly until I can. 
     

     
    gave the new pipes some temp bitumen coating until I can do the others.

    Pipes took some getting out. Luckily I made two tools for the assistance of the extraction process. First was made from 3mm side guard lamp bracket, which bent immediately. The second was made from an 8mm thick shift rod out of a truck gearbox. That one didn’t mess about.

     
    the seals were extracted by running an m10 bolt into it and using the same extraction tool to remove.

    My worst fears hit me yesterday. The pipe is split. it’s also stuck in the valve block, which is going to take some getting out without damaging the block.
     
    ordered two new metal pipes, pointless doing one and not the other as it looks like it’s leaking too. This job is going to cost me just over £250 so far and that’s doing it myself.

    I payed a man to remove the headlining, fix all the water leaks and refit a new headlining. 
     

     

    there were a few leaks, front sunroof had a loose bolt that the riv nut was spinning. The sunroof was removed. I repaired the riv nut for him the truckers way and it was resealed and refitted. 

     
    there was a leak from the front nearside roof channel drain, that’d been sealed. And the rear of the roof has a bung for an additional aerial which was loose. The rear sunroof and roof rails were loose, all retightened. 
     

     
    the new headlining was refitted, and the interior lights upgraded while it was there.

    Brakes built up. Surprising how easily everything went back together. The back plate and all its trimmings are completely rot free. Nothing fell to bits. 
     
    Drum is on, just need to bleed the cylinder up and hopefully job is done

    Today I’ve collected some of my tools from work. I’ve left, start a new job on Tuesday. This wouldn’t have gone in the Audi. The rest will need to go in a van.
