    There is nothing... Absolutely nothing un-cool about an 800. You take that back and mean it!
    Good luck with your picasso, they do what they say on the tin as mentioned, it's the hands that they fall into that gives them their reputation, it's almost as bad as the zafira or the meriva if you only have 3 kidz.
    I used to drive and work on all variants and conditions of these many times a day and can claim fame to the reason for the development of the anti roll bar shim bodge modification.

    I HAVE WINNERED!
    I sure showed my discovery who was boss this morning and set out for an early battle, taking it by total surprise and armed with nanocom... Discovery Cryptonite.
    Deleted A.C.E, and erased stored fault for ABS solonoids which I modded last week. This destroyed the 3 amigos without breaking a sweat and took off the ACE warning (I've removed that system* from the car and fitted conventional roll bars).
    Here's the proof!

    No black tape in here! I removed 5 bits of tape blanking out the warning lights, that includes the EML which was on a while back due to rubbish HT leads.
    I also switched on daylight running lights, auto speed central locking, purged the ABS valve block and checked all the suspension, sensors and running operations.
    Took it for a drive and for the first time we've owned this car, it's fault free and the brakes which have always been a bit shit, have transformed the car since fitting the new master last week and reactivating the TC and ABS today, both of which have never worked whilst dos tres amigos were present. Also downhill descent will work too so now I am going to find a mountain to drive down to test it...
    Was the equipment worth the money? As it's worked and got rid of those sodding warning lights.... YES! That's how desperate these products make their owners!
    At least now all faults and parameters can be read and analysed, no more are they metal boxes withholding dark secrets! 
    Can't wait for all the lights to return tomorrow...

    Yes please. Hopefully my end will be more successful this year and I don't end up receiving my own gift back I sent out. If anyone has any allergies then please state them, for example, if you are allergic to pepper then say so as I don't want to send you a load of pepper.
    I have a great gift idea this year, just waiting for it to fall off of the landrover.

    How does the water know where to go to avoid trees? Baffled by nature, it's like it's done that for years.
    That aside, I used to live in a small village triangulated by 1 large and 2 small rivers. Our house was about 200+ years old as were the neighbours houses until a few doors down and then you had 3 rather plush 60's bungalow efforts. You can guess who got flooded everytime it rained a bit.
    The river authority who's name escapes me were forever trying to modify and improve the rivers with the same result everytime, maybe even making it worse. I mean, sometimes people have just got to admit that thier house was built in a fucking stupid place!
    My grump today is public transport- trains. I do it every time... Sit by the window leaving myself open to some random to park their arse next to me- why!?!

    I should think that if you go to any citroen dealer, there will be several hundred of these under trays hidden behind the shop in that strange slip of no man's land that smells of nettles and fox poo.

    Anyway, with that rant exorcised, today I finished off the speaker upgrade to the Rover 620. Bagged some cheap Pioneers from Halfords a few weeks back, but the old spacers didn't work with them. Spotted some solid MDF ones on eBay for a Honda S2000 that looked similar to the Rover 600. Fitted perfectly with the Pioneers - banged out some loud Prodigy tunes and rewarded with crystal clear music, rather than the pathetic fart from the gubbed OEM Goodmans' speakers which had all but disintegrated.
