  1. Car Finance Rip Off??

    the main consideration when buying via finance is the APR ( annual percentage rate of interest ) most reputable garages will include this in financial packages they are offering it might be better taking out a bank loan or some other form of loan at a cheaper APR paying cash though is the preferred option + you can do a bit of bartering i didn't get my £2000 because my fiesta happened to be a 35van ( cars only ) but i did do an acceptable deal using cash

  4. Immobilisers

    i agree 100% ...my original post is an opinion..as far as i am concerned there are no cons i just want a vehicle with no immobiliser....if the rest of the planet wants the consequences of immobiliser malfunctions ..so be it ps i want the vehicle to be under my control not the vehicle to ( when it decides ) to do what hell it wants.. usually causing immobilisation and disruption
  5. Immobilisers

    whats the difference..no car ..or no car....if the damn thing wont start ...get it nicked
  6. Immobilisers

    they can still nick your car with a scaffold bar and 1/2 a screw driver you please yourself ..if you cant start your car ..then pray some thief will come and start it for you I WANT THE OPTION...you walk home
  7. Immobilisers

    why cant i buy a new ( ish ) car without an immobiliser...or why dont they make an easy fix ( bypass ) for legit owners ...i think car security is getting a bit ' BIG brother and / or nannified ' and should be left to the punter if he wants it or not malfunctioning security devices can be a pain in the ar5e and should be optional the internet is full of people trying to get their ' safe ' cars mobile again ... TIP : If yours packs up go and find a car thief he'll charge you a lot less than the rip off main dealers
  8. Wont Start Endura 1.8De

    i'm right behind you
  9. Wont Start Endura 1.8De

    in effect the resistance is short circuit + the device ( gloplug ) when it gets hot the resistance increases the 3 ohm reading is the multimeter readout which is very dependant on the multimeter spec so 3 ohms is as good as a short cicuit ( but not quite ) hence the effect of the gloplug if you short circuit a battery with a zero resistance material then nothing happens because there is no voltage drop ...so no current can flow the nearest you can get to zero resistance is silver ...but never zero
