  1. Yeah it's one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234566289973?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=UYYCUz9vRVi&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=CVQtOrP6SSG&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY It is a challenge to fit as you have to remove the control panel from the hidden drawer which is fiddly, but a bit of patience is worth it, pretty much plug and play, comparable double din AA+CP units from pioneer and the like are £400, and don't look as good or offer wireless functionality.
  2. Gave the old W211 a wash and wax today, it still looks good considering it's 19 years old this year. Also I recently brought it into the 21st century with a new stereo with wireless android auto and carplay, Finally got the reversing camera wired up, what a pain that was. It's proving quite reliable so far although I have got an SBC warning which means I'll have to send the pump off to be refurbished, my local specialist quoted me £1900! I can have it rebuilt for £450 so it's not the end of the world. Overall average is 40mpg and that's 90% town only, can't complain for a nigh on 2 ton big old bus. Although being a pre DPF diesel it stinks until its warm, which I'm not a fan of.
  3. It was on fireball tools YT page I think
  4. I was about to ask the same thing, surely the missing wheel nuts and the money light being on were obvious? The E320 looks nice, I wish my E270 had an extra cylinder.
  5. That's true, right until the point a twat in an uber or white van does a last minute U turn (which is par for the course in that there London) and it won't stop in time, all part of the fun though, if I saw one on a dual carriageway I'd think what a moron for taking it on there as it has all the integrity of a wet paper bag, but around town I don't see the fuss, apart from being laughed and pointed at.
  6. Nice to see it still getting some love, I've missed having a floppytop this year.
  7. You test them with a multimeter, not a scan tool.
  8. It will have nothing to do with the seat removed You need to do some basic checks, is there fuel, is there a spark and work from there, they are very simple engines and have little in the way of electronics.
  9. Vid doesn't work but when it's in the run position the Fi light should be on and the fuel pump should prime, the key should not turn past on but the ign switch is probably worn. Does the side stand switch work? Does the clutch need to be pulled in for it to start? Have you replaced the fuel in the tank with fresh?
  10. Fuck me that is awful, they are usually rotten too. You need to do everything you can to dissuade her.
  11. I doubt the fuel is stale unless its been sat for a year or more, killswitch off? Have you a spark? Does the fuel pump prime when you turn it on?
  12. A less restrictive exhaust and a bigger carb and some careful setting up will see gains, you're not a small bloke so any 50cc is going to struggle a bit to be honest, I don't know how old your daughter is but once you start fiddling you could be making the bike illegal if she's only 16 and restricted to a moped, whether that is a concern of not is up to you.
  13. Be reeet cut it before where its leaking, fold it over a couple of times and clamp it with locking pliers, job done! I'm not recommending this but I have done it in an emergency before
  14. It's also the least cuntish thing to do, I've been a landlord with cunts for tenants who've not paid rent and trashed the fucking house owing thousands, it's a cunts trick, I can't believe people are recommending not paying, I hope to fuck you never have to rent your own house out.
  15. Just remember if you keep paying the rent it'll take at least 6 months to evict you, so there's no need to rush into an unsuitable property
  16. Replaced the Z900 with this last week Did a 300 mile trip on it today and its alright, I'm going to buy a newer model so I'll probably be selling it soon, cheap!
  17. Nice smooth bikes with plenty of poke, heavier than a sports 600 but not bad in reality, all day comfort, decent brakes, great at 7/10ths, not so much after that, if you want a grunty retro there's a lot to like about them, see also GSX1400 and bandit 1250
  18. Oh yeah they look much better than a poor paint job or scratch or two. 🙄
  19. Fuck me Stu have a word with yourself, the stickers are fucking embarrassing, why the fuck would you have a joke about a vagina on your car? your kids get in that car don't they? poor bastards, Grow up man, its fucking tragic.
  20. Did you miss the 'if maintained properly' in my post? my Spanish friends only fix their cars when they go wrong, and are no better at maintaining them than their UK counterparts, they do fix them eventually rather than scrap them as it would be financially stupid to scrap them like we do here.
  21. I don't agree with this, why would it be dead? they will happily do 300k if maintained properly, cars have been ridiculously cheap for years in the UK, try buying a 11 year old mondeo estate in Spain for £5k, they are around 7500-8000€, we have all benefitted from cheap cars previously but I actually don't mind that older cars are beginning to retain some value and not become worthless simply because of their age.
  22. I had one of those too, it wasn't rusty but it suffered similar issues. My worst is probably a 307 estate, I'll never travel to view a car on the last train of the day with no way of getting home other than buying the car again. My recent V70 was a nail too, but the 307 pips it.
