    ebay 'BARGAINS'

    Saw one of these for the first time yesterday, poo brown it was. Now this is just my sort of shite: awkward looking, sales flop, overpriced and under achieving.. Why not? I thought, and had a look - £14,000! Ludicrous!
  2. Don't see that a brake compensator valve could cause spontaneous brake operation, it's just a pressure limiter in the hydraulic line to the rear brakes.

    Part of the appeal of BMW used to be that your premium pounds bought you a lot of car rather than than a car with a lot of tat in it. I'd have a base 7 series over a 5 series full of toys any time. Especially with that lovely big-block six engine.

    Honda Inshite

    A replacement battery from Honda is about £2500 plus fitting. British Insight owners are lucky to have one of the world's Insight specialists at http://www.solarvan.co.uk in Yorkshire and he can do an improved spec. battery rebuild with new cells for £2000 fitted. If I get a battery problem I may try bodging it with used cells if I can get hold of an old Insight battery. There is a massive amount of discussion of battery ills and cures on www.insightcentral.com but no easy and obvious way to go. I'm more likely to just ignore the battery completely, (I can drive around the lack of electroboost) or to just spend the money. £2k is a lot but my cash is depreciating faster than this car at the moment so why not?

    Honda Inshite

    Another year, another 12 tank-fulls and another PASS. Only MOT preparation, or maintenance* since last summer was a quick headlight polish with T-cut. The rear brake pipe advisories came with an "I mean it" this time so they will be done in a couple of weeks. (First advised three years ago). So not much to report. Which doesn't make for interesting reading but does make for happy shiteing. *** I am not counting drive battery maintenance. It needs a "balancing" charge every month or so to keep things healthy, and the IMA fault codes at bay.
  6. After many years, tonight & unexpectedly, I met the local mechanic, who had a bad stroke eight years ago. He has tentatively started driving again, in a wonderfully-pogweasled Peugeot 106 Diesel.
  7. Sorry to read of the Gamma's engine failure. You may have just experienced the infamous timing belt snatch. Timing doesnt need to be far out before piston knocks head of valve sideways and clank...... I hope a head turns up quickly. The cylinder liners are said to sink in these engines, make sure they are checked before reassembly, while the heads off etc.

    I'd buy that yellow ZS if it really was that shape.

  13. Every time I read about sodding Avantimes I go through the same crisis of wanting another one. V6 Automatic. Taiga green with the posh, coloured leather, satnav delete. Black steel wheels. (As supplied for snow tyres) A half size euro-pallet will fit in the boot. So they are practical.
