Hello

Washed the car yesterday so was hoping it was dry today.......and it was!

Nice going over with Meguiars Ultimate Quik Wax.

Looking forward to the rain now so I can observe the beading :)

Filled my tank with Esso Supreme Diesel for a trial and so far after a 85 mile run today the engine seems happier.

Ive done the same for the past couple of weeks, alternating 91 RON and 95 RON for each week

see if your wallets as happy as your engine haha

Ive found the engine runs quieter at idle and 100r/pm lower on the 95 than it does on the 91. It might cost a little bit more but I am happy to pay for the improvements. Its a small tank so it doesn't make much difference really

Nice one!

Watch out for stale petrol - it can even solidify if left for long enough

Drained the petrol and put a gallon of vpower in, running a bit rough though at the moment.

So I've picked her up this afternoon from Collins Performance and wow, what a difference! The torque just keeps pulling!

Total cost so far for cat back exhaust and remap £0. She's now putting out 140ps at the wheel :D

I'm back in a week or so for a Finsport induction kit and will be the test car for auto specialists intercooler :D

Collins are looking for someone with a 100ps version for remaps, FOC so anyone in the Cheshire/North West after a free remap let me know!

I'll try and post up the dyno screenshot soon.

Had the windscreen replaced for a third time since 6th Jan due national windscreens not doing their job right.

Had my 135,000 km service with a wheel alignment and rotate no problems at all, the garage managed once again to break the caps off some off my wheel lugs though

Not keen for the next service where the Timing belt will be due for a replacement $$$$

Car sat at home undrivable!!!

Every time i go out the fan sticks on for ages and you can smell...Burnt rubber or burnt something!!!

PLUS - sidelights keep blowing, and i'm fed up with it!!

Phoned dealers and its been a week.... no ring back!

-

The problem is a stuck realy , fuse number r1 under the bonnet , disconnect the battery take the fuse out and give the dirty connectors a file with a nail file or sand paper try pluging it back in and see how you get on

if it dose not work you can buy the realy from for im sure its £26

but cleaning it should do the trick

cheers
