  1. Yes it does but in practice you're unlikely to be pulled over by police in a small van doing 60 in a 60 limit. I was caught driving A LOT over the 60 limit in a MK2 Caddy van, they treated it as if I was driving a CDV even though that's not in the logbook.
  2. I used to worry about them but they have a bit of road sense. Still, I slow down. One foggy night on the A9 at or near Drumochter I saw a car drive over a large deer carcass at 70MPH and keep going.
  3. Czech out the Fabia Junior. Austere. It doesn't even have a glovebox lid. I had a Fabia SDI a while ago, it was a bit dour to drive but reasonably comfy and good for long distances.
  4. I don't like a shut line on a car, waaahhh.
  5. A primer bulb is helpful if there's an air leak or for priming a new fuel filter but they can also cause air leaks. You can also prime the filter by filling it with diesel or veg. Double check the pipe bore, it could be 8 or 10mm https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F312583065874
  6. Ditch that filter housing, they're not very good and it's already bodged, buy one of these. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264446960963
  7. When Reliant went bust I think they became the replacement for eccentric older men. I see a few sans permis cars around in Scotland.
  8. I got them off with regular sockets after the Irwin bits slackened them.
  9. Off. What's the consensus on reusing bolt with gubbed heads temporarily*?
