Yeah I think anyone who has a mac device without a doubt get an iPhone it's secure and very easy to connect.

I'm sure there are a fair few celebs who would disagree with that statement  :whistling:

#410622 Fuel Filter...1.8 Petrol Mk2.5

Posted by SeanW on 17 September 2014 - 01:12 PM

Pollen filter is in the passenger footwell, behind the centre console.

If you have your radio code, you miggt find it easier to take the fuse box & its mounting bracket out (really easy and pretty obvious how to do it).

Oil filter is under the car and pretty easy to do. Spark plugs are, well, if you don't know where to find those, then maybe DIY servicing isn't for you lol

The air filter can be a bit of a pain to seat properly and might take a bit of a jiggle about.

As for fuel light roulette, I'm one of those who waits until the needle practically goes backwards lol

That would have been a waste of time, effort and resources

Personally, I would have liked to see the car hit the ground, the wheels break free, doors flump out and off the car to make that sort of farting noise...just like the cartoons used to portray :D

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

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!

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'

Dead Penguins - I never knew this!

Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica ? Where do they go? Wonder no more!

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact

with its offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice,

using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.

The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."

You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?

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).
