  1. PS Binge read this entire thread over the last four nights (on holiday, so starved of distractions/entertainment) and the ups and downs of chod bothering mojo, fleet reinflation and budget bodging* has kept me riveted amd and raised more than a few chuckles. *With much greater skill and success than i can muster Keep up the bothering and the updates!
  2. That sort of arrangement is in Chrysler Voyagers too - a thumbwheel that has a potentiometer part to its travel and two switch positions. And it annoys the shit out of me, that they have mixed up a control for instrument brightness with overall control of the courtesy lights, with two troublesome consequences: 1: with a desire for dimmer dash lighting at night and in shit weather, the driver winds the control all the way down, then none of the interior lights come on when a door is opened, and not driver nor passengers can figure out why 2: with a desire for the brightest level of dash lighting, the driver winds the control all the way up, into the second switch position, putting all the interior lights on, and leaves it in this position on exiting the vehicle, so that the eight dome lights stay on after the car is locked and they kill the battery overnight Two controls that it makes zero sense whatsoever to combine into one...
  3. 'How to win friends and influence people' Know how to fix chod
  4. For balance, from here you can clearly see the LHM slick it's leaving in the ford...
  5. Could be straight out of the original Citroen brochure, depicting elegant living in rural France, with the XM doing duty for the early baguettes, lait and croissants run, while later conveying its owner and his oh-so-statuesque femme to a little soirée... Ahem. Sorry. Didn't mean to wax quite so lyrical, but the sight of an XM in what appears to be its natural habitat etc etc. Calendar pic, Shirley?
  6. If Khan has the autonomy/audacity to expand the ULEZ the way he has, I'd like to think the same could be done to curb the cruising culture's excesses
  7. That's terrible news, so sorry to hear of your loss, Pieman
  8. Totally agree with the above comments - your fabrication and welding are both excellent and streets ahead of what many charge lots of cash for. And worlds away from mine. This Honda's future is looking very bright! Big fan of these cars - had a rare spec 1.6i SE on a W plate - cooking lager by comparison with the 1.8, but it was a nice drive and a nice place to eat up many miles. Keep up this brilliant work, and the thread!
  9. How is that gap there? Was it really that bad from the factory, or has some large scale bodging taken place on the floor or body? Invaluable insight into restoration techniques, this whole thread. Keep it up!
  10. Mind if i take a shufty at it before it gets broken for parts? I had exactly the same behaviour from an HP recently, but it turned out to be an easy fix...
  11. The visible customisations you list make me extremely surprised that it's come from a large dealership rather than them having punted it off to auction after trade in, but I guess they're still desperate for stock to fill the forecourt. Good job she has them on the hook* for its failings. I'd take great delight in returning it to stock, then tracking down the wise monkey that modded it and inserting the larger mods into their smaller orifices. Fortunately I'm too busy Good luck in all your dealings with the poor thing

  13. Can the mods attend to a new user registration issue please? A friend has wanted access for some time and had tried several times to register. Most recently, he tried to sign up with the email address oliver at inavision dot co The site responds with 'this email address is already in use' Great! Thinks he, i have successfully registered on one of the previous attempts. And because he gets the option to reset the password on this login, he chooses to. He gets the email to reset the password, resets the password and straight away gets the following displayed: Reset password and this came up right away Which considering he's never got to the point of posting anything seems a bit unfair. Can you look into this please, mods? Thanks!
