  1. Ooh, I do love a bit of suspense in a video! That new drone seems like a decent bit of kit - the picture looked pretty good, at least on my shite monitor.
  2. I am grumpy with myself at the moment - my own indecisiveness is pissing me off. I really do fancy a new Sandero and at the moment I can afford one, but I have this nagging doubt at the back of my mind that four years is a long time and my employment and / or housing situation could change in that period and fuck things up. I think the problem is that I am generally incredibly risk-averse, which is part of the reason why I've never really got anywhere in life.
  3. I understood that comment to mean that the prices for the lift motors are going mental, rather than the pop-up mechanism on this particular car...
  4. I had assumed that the movement in the tensioner was an effect rather than a cause - whichever pulley it is that is making the noise is presumably running slightly unevenly, which is causing the belt to do the same and thus making the tensioner wiggle around more than it normally would.
  5. Took the Ypsilon to Tesco earlier and interestingly, replacing the column stalks also seems to have brought the stop-start back to life. Now all I need to do is to find out how to get Multiecuscan to connect to the car so I can tell it it now has cruise control.
  6. Don't think the MIL is an MOT fail on a diesel of that age.
  7. I actually managed to get it undone OK using the nut when I changed the filter, but I agree that it doesn't look like the most robust of setups.
  8. Bit late for this chap, but when I lost the key to the one I had I was able to get a replacement cut by the local Subaru dealer on the VIN. I then had to spend several hours upside down in the driver's footwell bypassing the dealer fit immobiliser, but that's another story.
  9. Had a couple of those Scénics, they're not a bad steer but they do have the usual electrical issues suffered by most Renaults of that era. I'm assuming it's an electric handbrake? I think most of them were.
  10. So the max output of a high-end MAMIL is about 1.5bhp? That's not bad, considering.
  11. I approve of your choice of tipple. I always thought the turning circle was fairly decent for such a big old barge - it's certainly better than the Rover 75. It's not an easy car to park though because it's mahoosive and you can't see out of the back very well.
  12. Another weekend with not a great deal of fettling done, due to the weather mostly being dismal. It cleared up somewhat this afternoon, so I spent some time contemplating how best to sort the exhaust on the Innocenti. I only got as far as getting the back box off before I went to pick up Tim E from the station, and we spent a couple of hours talking about, amongst other things, violins. Once Tim had headed off westward I had another look at the exhaust and decided that the easiest way to sort it would be to take the whole thing off the car. The two downpipe-to-manifold bolts came undone eas
  13. When I was 19, I was paying £950 or so to insure a Saab 9000 Turbo. It was an SE model with leather, climate and cruise - I felt like the dog's bollocks.
  14. Given that it's a Sunday I'm impressed that you haven't had to do half the journey on replacement buses...
