My Honda (Rhonda) - For the last week O/S/F tyre has been losing 5 psi a day.
Took her to the local tyre place today, expecting a puncture.
No puncture. Alloy is deteriorating and bead was not sealing. They cleaned up the rim and got it to seal.
I need to budget for alloy refurb x 4, as the others don't look that far behind the leaky one.
As a wonderful bonus, the fitter noticed a bulge in the sidewall of the N/S/R, so she is going in Tuesday for a new Kormoran. Somewhat disappointed as the tyre was new in January!
Audrey - the repaired cluster arrived this morning (amazing service, I only posted it Thursday !). Looking forward to seeing a working IPK tomorrow. He also replaced the broken trip button for free
Her battery is flat - not sure if its due to being sat around for long periods or its knackered (was new in January, when she was delivered from Montytom). I don't have a charger and in a fit of generosity, I went out and bought her a Bosch S4.
Mrs CSW - its her birthday Sunday week. She has wanted a beetle (Golf mk4 in a frock), ever since they came out. As I am a crap husband with no imagination, I don't know what to get her, so I've been looking at local sub 1k beetles.
Did VW build rust in to them?. Not found a single example locally that has not had advisories or fails for rust!
