Re 'fogging'... *note Not 'dogging', though steamy windows likely too! ๐Ÿคฃ

.... If we crack 1/8" of the passenger front window whilst trundling along, then the fogging quickly clears (full through air IS selected). I will report after Cabin filters changed...

Must be a common issue, my Getz looks like a steamy shower after a few minutes in the rain

Yeah all sounds the same as mine,ย  now I just get a tiny patch where the LH wiper changes direction on the screen.

#confession time# ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š....

I'm having a 'stalling issue' ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

...... Having come over from an Auto + I can't hear/feel (aka 'rough as..') engine revving, I have bogged/stalled at least twice ๐Ÿคฆ.

My 'history' of clutch torture is fairly blameless... Very Short intro/no howling and off we go.

I have read of troubles experienced by learners, passing on a Big Torque diseasl, and being unable to launch a Wimp petrol ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

...... This car is SO out of my comfort zone ๐Ÿฅฐ

Oh Fu#k...... I haven't had my wheels off [... yet!] but Interweb points to my Getz having Drum/Discs at the rear ๐Ÿ˜ง

Are these likely to generate the level of MOT aggravations legend would fortell ๐Ÿ˜•

Ohhhhh...... Scores on the Doors ๐Ÿ˜ณ

60k/17yr.... Factory belt, they reckon ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Slick sheen, like a Latin American dancers quiff + barcode/cracked backside ๐Ÿ› ๏ธโšก

Kit in + oil/air โœ”๏ธ

..... I can NOW find out what this "free revving, moreso than 1600, due to Oversquare dimensions" equates to ๐ŸŽฑ

Deffo dodged the bullet.....

Leaping onto a 'sunny period', twixt downpours.... ๐Ÿ™„

I drilled out the centre of the 'aerial stub' (snapped flush when I got the car) up to 3MM >> ragged the M4 tap in >> screwed the stepped/threaded adapter & finally, the BeeStingger ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

Ahh..... Bright sunny morning = paint!!

I'm going to paint the backsides of my wheels and leave them out... It's 'direct to metal' Matt black, touch dry 90mins.

We'll see if the CurrantBun can manage to stay out till 12 noon ๐Ÿ™„โ˜•

I've got a new set of rear discs for a Picanto in the shed, which, might be the same fitment as the Getz?

The brakes on the Picantoย with the 4 discsย were fantastic, so much so that they reverted to drums, dueย to complaints from ownersย

I had a rentalย Getz when I was working in Israel during 2004/2005 and thought it was a very decent little runabout.

Would do an indicated ton and MPG was pretty good but all costs were found by my employer anyway.

A few years back, on the eBay thread, there was a black Getz that had done something like 475,000 miles, or thereabouts, so there should be plenty of mileage left in that motor, as long as you keep the tin worm at bay!ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

My aunt drove one 7 miles with no oil pressure and it survived. Never really sounded right again, but it lasted a few more years.
