There is/was talk of introducing RFID tags to plates - can't remember what program it was on - but I think it was VAG who were pushing forward with the R and D

#410311 How did you find the Ford Owners Club?

Posted by SeanW on Yesterday, 03:16 PM

My Mum has suffered with something similar (bulging discs that pinch the nerves) for years.

She found the injections to be fantastic! Like you, she was offered the operation to fuse the discs - but at the time (we're talking best part of 20 years ago) it was a very low success rate. These days she's on quite an impressive cocktail of painkillers and makes the condition live with her, as she puts it.

For some things, she has gotten creative in accomplishing day to day tasks - and managed to incorporate several of the physio exercises into her creative solutions lol

Hope you get better soon - or at the very least no worse!

Phil - just remind her that you are still interacting with real humans (albeit hidden behind a screen somewhere...well, I'm fairly sure most of you lot are real...except Lenny - pretty sure he's a ghost - Vicki must have murdered him looonnnngggg ago...)


...unlike Bubble gum popping sweetie farm drama or whatever it is

A Matelot (look it up ;)), dies and goes to heaven.
St Peter asks him what he'd like in his personal eternal environment so he can have a blissful afterlife.
The Matelot asks that he never has to share afterlife with any Royal Marines as he hated them in life and has no intention of suffering them in death.
St Peter creates the Matelot's personal heaven for him and tells him that when he awakes in the morning everything will be perfect.
The next morning he awakes to the sound of someone shouting 'LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT, ABOUT TURN, HALT, ATTENSHUN, FALL OUT THE OFFICERS!!'.
The matelot looks out of the window to see someone in a Royal Marines uniform marching up and down and gets suitably annoyed.
He storms off to find St Peter ang give him a piece of his mind.
He berates St Peter at great length and then allows him the chance to explain.
'That's not a Royal Marine' says St Peter ' that's God, he just thinks he's a Royal Marine'

#408849 Comparison Websites? How Do They Work?

Posted by SeanW on 12 September 2014 - 08:45 AM

I guess I can answer the question "what difference does a day make?"

About £75 a ticket for a 58yo bloke who started driving at 17... (granted, he shouldn't be such a naughty boy and stop getting nabbed for speeding).

#408078 Redex Fuel System Cleaner???? Any Good????

Posted by SeanW on 10 September 2014 - 12:36 PM

I'm not sure on the diseasel engines, but if you tell us the age and engine size, somebody will know.
In short, from the little I do know about the dirty diesels, a good service (and upgrade a green cotton air filter), terraclean and an EGR blank all make for a good happy running engine

#408047 Redex Fuel System Cleaner???? Any Good????

Posted by SeanW on 10 September 2014 - 10:47 AM

Lenny is the man to ask about green cotton filters.

How bad is your smoking?
What engine do have?
Does it have a DPF?
Does it have a functioning EGR?
What's the service history like?

Sorry for the questions, but the more info you can provide the better - also, it's worth creating your own thread on it...you're more likely to get replies to it
