  1. It’s getting to that time of the year again. This time, however, I’m actually a bit frightened to tot it all up. Anyone wanna go first so I don’t feel so bad? It’s been a positive year from a “turnover” perspective, but the numbers frighten me!
  2. The two coils are up nice and high - but I reckon you’re right. The problem is there’s only a “cropped” undertray; it only reaches to approximately the front of the wheels. There isn’t, afaik, a bigger one available from any model of Avensis that would fit.
  3. It was fine. Previously it was solid 24-28. Every day. Today the A1037 was quiet (0815) probably 40 cars a minute - the new A14 had three lanes of free running traffic and probably 50% capacity.
  4. Today saw me breakdown, albeit briefly, in the ever dependable Avensis. Sad as I am, I wanted to drive the new stretch of the A14 which first involved me driving the old A14 (now signposted A1307). The approach road was flooded on the inside, and i was unable to pass wide due to a vehicle turning right. Now, the Avensis has never really liked getting wet. Hammer through rain and the PAS will stop working for 20 seconds, and sometimes the car can hold back as the lights dim briefly. However, today it just proceeded to die. I dropped down a gear hoping to hop it back into firing but nothing. 3rd? Nope. I just cruised to a halt. Plenty of grunt to crank it, but no dice. It briefly ran at the 4th attempt as steam came from the bonnet. After it dried out for a few minutes, it started - cleared its throat - and off we went. Any ideas? I probably went through 2” of water at about 30 mph. Ps. The A1307 was the weirdest experience. When it was the A14 you clung onto the wheel and hoped for the best- it was manic. Now? Like dystopian end of world stuff. I wasn’t overtaken for 8 miles. It was like driving on Christmas Day. Never made the new A14 because the exits are really limited and there’s only W/B access at Papworth.
  5. That’s made me disproportionately happy. For reasons unknown I always get a bit homesick at this time of the year; it’s lovely to see such a photograph!
  6. I’ve seen this with my own eyes before - couldn’t work out wtf was happening for a while!! Good luck, Kenneth !
  7. This isn’t entry level shitin’ (No G) but is mega. AS brand colours too. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F184033471299
  8. A new £7.99 handle from Screwfix. They have a variety of different fixings so it will almost certainly work for you. On the Haynes scale, it’s one star stuff.
  9. Was he the chap with the Tipo? I assumed he was with Ray MK (in my mind I thought it must be his son). We had a quick chat, a really nice fellow.
  10. Cool. “Keep Christmas in your own way, and let me keep it in mine™️.” It’s my favourite time of the year, and I hope it remains so forever. Grump? I’ve had to replace my third uPVC window handle in as many years. Am I a brute, or just very unlucky? My father had windows 22 years ago and not a single problem. I reckon these are about 10. Grin? The fix is £7.99 and I feel like Dick from “Escape to the Chateau” any time I fix something around the house.
  11. I had a C1 for a week. I loved how it drove, loved how it sounded and loved the gearing. But they are fairly impractical and not totally at home on the motorway (!) Still, you can park where there isn’t a space and I achieved a mixed 58mpg. 7/10 - but definitely future shite.
