It's where the local Corsas circle after getting a McFlurry. ;)
Put me off McDonalds for lunch, would go to KFC but it burnt down. :lol:

Lol i went last friday night to drive thru,
Girl couldnt hear my order because Ronald was roating the Ronal's in the car park,
Then five minutes later when he's gone off to the pits,
Cops arrive and only car around is lenny with the GT stripes :lol:
As if lads he's gone already

Why an earth would you want to do a wheel spin in a Fiesta? All it does is wear out your tyres more quickly burns more fuel.


Theres always a clown outside McDonnalds on saturday nights Chris :)

Other option,
Get two baking trays,
Put one under each rear wheel in car park,
Leave handbrake on,
Drive around drifting like a Boss!!

Cars these days are eqipped with ESP
Electronic stability programme,
It applies brakes to any wheel that rotates faster than the rest,

Switch it off if you can, should be in menu when hand brake is engaged
Then the wheels will spin but also then it becomes a car and not a simulator,
Cant throw it in to bends with ESP off as it wont help you stay on the road.
Car becomes a real car,

Best advise get yourself a toyota Glanza or somthing pre 2002 real car
Cable controled throttle
Not like todays electronic valve which the system over rides
and no traction control,
No electronic over rides,
No costly remapping, just bleed valve on turbo for 20 quid
No diagnostics old skool mechanics
I picked up a Toyota Levin BZR for 1500 before and got it out of my system,
1.6 170bhp non turbo vti twin cam engine,

ESP can be turned off because in snow your car wouldnt drive 3 metres with it actived

Surprising how kids are so different. My little one is 1 in 3 weeks. No teeth, not attempting to walk, crawl or bum shuffle lol. I've got the words no and dad before but think they were accidental

the first year doesnt be long going mate my eldest is eight now,
My youngest daughter is now six and she was almost bauld until she was two, teeth werent coming too early neither and they cried about almost everything,
This lad came out like woulferene needed nails cut and full head of hair lol hardly cries atall but the other problem is vicki has never put him down since he came home in december so he's got no reason to call out i suppose,

You're gas man. Made me lol reading it.
Tyres are so expensive and with the miles I put on the car, having bigger wheels make no sense. Plus, I like the comfort.
Like you said, I will wait till I get the B12 kit and see if it comes with tower strut bushes. Maybe other members who have the B12 kit on their cars can confirm if it does come with them?
Halford seems to have a decent multi meter and I'm gonna buy it over the weekend to tune the amps. Reckon it will be fun and informative.

:lol: isn't it the truth though..

+1 multimeter is also useful when diagnosing corresponding ends of cables by sending a micro pulse between the two ends,
Some also come with a thermostat probe,
But don't forget to buy battery's.

Case looks very slick, professional and purposeful. Nice find. Will update when I tune the amps, hopefully over the weekend.

the cases are very cheap and great quality, supposed to be waterproof aswell but I'm not going to test that aspect lol it does well at protecting the cable from harm as its not something that's used much but still essential to have close by,

I have a second case in the post by accident,
I raised a claim with the seller last Tuesday as it hadn't arrived in the expected time frame,
He agreed to send me a second one if i closed the dispute,
I apposed to receive a refund then purchase again as this way i retain my purchasing rights should the second one not arrive i can again raise a claim,
But low and behold it arrived one week late,
So ill have one identical to the images in around five weeks if anyone wants it cost me nothing :lol:

Great to hear he is doing well Lenny :)

Thanks mate, was a life changing experience for both of us to be fair,
Your new baby must be arriving pretty soon now?

Yeah they support mirror play.. Fancy full functionality but still so new ATM. How's the littleun?

He's made a fantastic recovery thanks five months old now he is,
Moved in to his cott there last month, he's full of smiles and giggles,
Getting teeth at present and full of Gab :)
His two older sisters keep him well entertained too, only Cry's when he's got wind or hungry,

Cheers buddy. I'm looking for the AVH-4100NEX. So hard to get hold of outside America. I want android auto. Headunit looks superb though!!

This one is android compatable but also has Apple CarPlay enables reading and responding of text messages via your voice,
Aswell as navigation to locations upon request such as nearest KFC aswell as news weather updates etc.

Thanks a million for the offer Lenny but it's cheap enough in Halfords to buy one with the discount card and keep it for future uses.
As for the test tones, found them online and will just stick them on a usb to use it. Will try to do this over the weekend and report on findings. I reckon it will make a discernable difference.
Quite funny what you were saying about the neighbours and music from your car. I normally blast it during the day and it gets the kids dancing around. It's great fun for all of us

No prob mate,
Multimeter is a handy tool to have,
I look forward to your review after the sine-wave calibration,

After reading this, I am gonna get a multimeter and get that done over the weekend to keep me entertained. It will also make me learn something new. I found the manuals online for my 2 amps and the voltages suggested.
Would a cheap Ebay multimeter do the trick? I found the two tracks as uncompressed files online. That should be good enough I think to use for testing.

I bought my multimeter from china for 12 GBP,
If you want to PM me your PMID i can ship a lend of the cd's and multimeter to you tomorrow
Or if you would prefer to have your own there available in Argos fairly cheap aswell,
