  1. Well, technically given the season it should probably be chestnuts...
  2. I can see a pattern forming here!
  3. Ah yes, I have wondered where he got to.
  4. Careful what you wish for...
  5. It is one thing doing work on the engine, because if you screw it up then the worst that will happen is it conks out and you are stuck at the side of the road - no big deal. If you screw up the brakes then you could kill somebody, EVEN AT LOW SPEEDS.
  6. Indeed! There is a slight splutter from cylinder-1 for the first few seconds until it warms up, but it isn't noticeable and causes no problems starting. When it comes to changing them again (which I hopefully won't need to do for another few years at least, given that they are Bosch plugs!) I think I'll just do the three as there is no way number 1 will come out easily, and it isn't worth the trouble to be honest. A lot of people run old diesels with only 3 plugs anyway if one snaps off.
  7. Yeah, well... Starts up no problem with new plugs though!
  8. I do like a trip to Tesco on the way home, and finding their offer on 1 litre bottles of spirits for £15!!
  9. Sounds too much like hard work for me!!
  10. I don't like driving through 20 miles of very dense fog tonight on my way to Inverness (and back), and just as my luck would have it, I decided to take the 405 which is the one car without working front fog lamps!! Typical, the first time in my driving life that fog lamps were genuienly needed, and I couldn't use them.
  11. Thing is, even when I use high quality screen wash it makes no difference as the jets/tubes freeze and result in nothing getting through anyway. The 405 is especially bad with its wiper-mounted spray bars. At the moment I am using Prestone (this stuff) which is good, but doesn't stop the jets freezing.
  12. You've noticed it too then? Boils my blood!!
  13. Exactly the same as Buttons. She wants what she can't have, and once you give her it she doesn't want it anymore. Mind you, a lot of humans are like that too...
  14. I am seriously wondering if that is what it is, and if so, I'm getting a bit paranoid about who I use when I next need tyres...
