  1. Do a regen on a car with a dpf and no heat shields and let us know how long it takes the carpets to start smoking lol
  2. I reckon it's passed your bedtime old timer
  3. If all these premium fuels burn so much cleaner and better, it's funny how they ain't mandatory to reduce polution. Rules on engines are getting tighter and tighter every year, but you still have a choice of what fuel you want.. The way they advertise these premium fuels, I'm nearly convinced my engine will be spotless inside with only hot air coming out the tailpipe.
  4. A dry day, that would be a dream come true for me haha. yes I paid around £100 for the last 3 piece kit, LuK I think. I normally opt to replace the gearbox oil seals as I've seen them start to weep once disturbed. It's an ideal time to replace the gearbox oil though when the box is out as there is no drain plug and you will loose some when you pull the driveshafts out anyway.
  5. Actually not that bad lol. Couldn't tell you how long it takes me to do one but I've done a few now. Straight forward enough, biggest issue is splitting the ball joints but even then..
  6. My thoughts shadow Ian's comments on this one. I don't know your personal situation or financial circumstances and neither am I about to question it but I personally find it absolutely mad that anyone would go through with the sale of a diesel car knowing fine well it's been misfuelled. The worst has yet to come from this problem. I wish you the best of luck dealing with it in the future and actually proving who is at fault as they will wash their hands of it and blame something else.
  7. Just another day in Scotland really ive been outside in the snow fixing an Audi A2. Fitting new brake hoses, Spring and CV joint. All good fun.
  8. You can get clamp on flexis but you need enough straight pipe either side in order to fit it. As for the backplate, either ford or see if a local factors can get pattern ones.
  9. He didn't say what it was a pint of
  10. I haven't had much dealings with Vetech, or GSF in general but I have fitted one Vetech wheel bearing in the past on a VW without issue and its still going fine some 50-60k miles on.
  11. I tend to stick the with big brands such as SKF, F A G, but i have been using alot of Moog for bearings, track rod ends and ball joints - so far no issues with them. My local factors deal mostly with Moog so easy to come by. If you are looking for SKF branded stuff, I'd phone round a few local factors and see if they stock or can get hold of them.
  12. The funny thing is I've yet to see them secure a ladder on a 'no-fines' type house with external insulation lol.
  13. I stand corrected, its desulphation I was thinking off - just had a flick through the manual. I knew both of my chargers had the option but then realised it cant be recondition as the smaller MXS0.7 doesnt have recondition.
  14. part of the cycle on the charger does include reconditioning but unless you monitor it you won't know how long its spent doing it.
  15. Have you ever tried just replacing the rubber gaiter.. It's usually a nightmare! Lol.
