  1. Must admit, although the 11 looked rather sexual with yellow bulbs fitted, the night vision was shite so I've gone back to normal ones.
  2. Another possible culprit is the plastic fuel filter housing. As others have documented online, the housing can crack causing air to leak in. If you've cleaned the housing out recently you may have inadvertently opened up a crack. The fix* is to replace it with a BMW E46 320d fuel filter. I tried this on my 406 that has a rough running/stalling issue when cold. It's a 2.1 XUD. It didn't work unfortunately, but is something else to consider. My next port of call is to replace what I think is one dodgy injector. Hopefully yours could just do with a good clean out.
  3. Indeed I did. In fetching Oyster Beige. The sills and fuel filler aperture were getting steadily worse, but it drove well albeit a bit floaty on the suspension and steering front. Blimey, 10 years ago now... Edit: sorry, those aero blades were me. The only time I've ever done that on chod.
  4. North Wales when I collected the Saab from brownnova. Back down south. Just a hint of chequer plate. Back to Wales again. Pembrokeshire. Old dog and an 18 year old collie. I'll end with March's spot of the month. Can't see me topping this in the coming months...another London gem.
  5. February and March lumped together. Hastings old town, by the fish huts. The XJ40 is always there when I'm in Hastings, so I assume it belongs to a volunteer on the miniature railway. Miscellaneous south London spots. I've 'done' this DS before, but no harm doing it again. This Capri is probably my favourite February spot. Heavy brake dust deposits and pissed exhaust make it.
  6. Glad to hear this still exists. Good luck with all the work!
  7. That Unipart oil is a decent price. I went to a BMW/Mini dealership when I had mine, and paid £60 for CVT fluid IIRC, as the stuff used in Mini 'boxes was compatible. They gave me a big drum with around 6 litres sloshing around.

    This will see out any apocalypse. Another watch list job, despite the spud cam pics. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-cavalier-2-0-gli-1991/114151371695?hash=item1a93f3b3af:g:tJcAAOSwpc1eYsl5

    Serious lob on for one of these at some point. Must wait until the proper bargains start appearing though. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1989-Mercedes-W124-Estate-300TE-Automatic-12-Month-MOT-Fully-Serviced/174226922379?hash=item2890bbdb8b:g:b84AAOSwSQhedlrD NEC car phone win.
  11. @spike60 Thanks for that run down. I'm wondering if my 406 problems are due to a leaky injector, so will get one of those leak off tests in due course.
  12. Naturally it's of little of importance at the moment. Just trying to keep the old grey matter occupied...
  13. We have made the decision to postpone our April classic until June 13th. Many of the cars are already on site and, having spoken with our vendors, we are making these cars available on a "buy now" basis and will update our website accordingly. These cars will be available for viewing, by appointment, during the week commencing Monday March 30th. https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic/saturday-4th-april-2020/ I assume they'll be deleting the sentence about viewing arrangements, and even a June sale seems optimistic (unless they do online only).

    I think wuv was talking himself into a spending spree there...
  15. Yesterday I gave the Cavalier an oil change and wash. It'll be my weapon of choice for taking the other half to work this week (she's a key worker and I'm most definitely not). This photo is the good side. The other is a bit battered and full of wob. I also awoke the Metro from its five month slumber. I was grinning all the way home until I could smell pez, then pulled over sharpish behind the others as the fire extinguisher was in the back of the 406. A clip on the fuel pump needed nipping up, but it's still not A1, and the fuel hose should really be replaced so I'll do that tomorrow as I've got some spare. It was spaffing out all over the exhaust manifold...been there before in something else and that didn't catch fire either, but still. Anal sphincter got a work out.
