  1. ๐Ÿ˜ Its getting delivered, dunno where, dunno when!
  2. New bike incoming.. purchased blind from Essex for more than I've ever spent on a bike before.. hope I like it, never even sat on one!
  3. I bought my SLK on Autotrader, it was just like it used to be.. phone seller, arrange to view, test drive, agree a price, cup of coffee, sort V5, shake hands and leave with car. I think its free to advertise under a grand?
  4. Got some amount of grief on the SLK forum, for daring to ask a question about air con... was basically told I was stupid, didn't know what I was doing and I should leave it to the professionals.. Got a long spiel about microns, temperature to pressure ratios, how I should replace every single part in the system and how it'll never work.. God, I fucking hate car "clubs" Made me right angry so it did.
  5. Aircon is fixed.. compressor rebuilt with replacement solenoid. So cold now it hurts. ๐Ÿฅถ
  6. Bolleux.. aircon died... Compressor still running, system is gas tight and up to pressure, but no cold a lot of learning has been done the past few days, and I find out it has a variable swash plate compressor, which adjusts output according to demand. Well, demand was high cos it was hot, and output was fuck all. Ripped out the compressor and found someone has chucked 11 gallons of UV dye in it at some point, which has clogged the control valve screen in the compressor so no adjustment. Found a low .mileage Chrysler crossfire compressor cheap on Ebay so it's on it's way.. Meanwhile..
  7. Most certainly not... I'd use P40 and do it right ๐Ÿ˜†
  8. yes, and the OBD socket is over there too. supposed to be within reach of the driver.... trying to change a fuse on these is keyhole surgery, and usually blocked by a load of wiring.
  9. Not defending the stupid price, but the 2.0 and 2.2 Don't have the powershit box.
  10. Many manufacturers do this now, especially the German ones. This pic is an Audi A6 Allroad, rear offside. I thought at first someone had been in there before me, but no.. they are all the same...
  11. You can't have made many sharp turns!
  12. Pick your weapon..
  13. Spotted this odd thing through the week.. First time I've ever had to Google a car to find out what it was!
  14. It owes me a little more now.. ๐Ÿ˜
  15. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1978-cadillac-eldorado-biarritz-7/
  16. The ยฃ600 wobbler is providing sterling service. Have been thinking to replace it, but it's really grown on me!
  17. I read somewhere the other day that Goodyear is trialling using dandelions for rubber production... Edit... https://corporate.goodyear.com/us/en/responsibility/sustainable-sourcing/sustainable-materials.html
  18. No, but it's an irrational thing.. I'd be living in it I think ๐Ÿ˜† her French teacher had one, and she was a right bitch by the sound of it!
  19. Spotted this sad wรจe thing today. Wanted to take it home but Mrs Cade absolutely hates them.. I may go back tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜†
  20. Ah, yours is a pre facelift.. just couldn't see a gearbox dipstick tube in the underbonnet pic and assumed manual.. wings look really good!
  21. Looks like a manual too, and not too rusty! Working through mine at the moment, jealous of your heated seats....
