Update To The Language Filters

Why are words describing peoples sexual preferences considered naughty words?

!Removed! and !Removed! are words in general daily use - so much so that even if someone tries to use them in a derogatory way, it generally fails.

New Towbar...bargain!!

06 March 2015 - 07:08 PM

So, I've just bought a new towbar for the car.  Useful for oiking boats around (I'm a Sea Cadet Instructor, and our heaviest trailered boat is under 500kg - even with a trailer it comes in under 750kg).


Spotted one on ebay at £70, reduced from £198.  Thought the original price was a bit inflated for a no-brand cheap Chinese import, but worth a punt for £70.


The picture on the listing is just a general one that they use on most of their ads so didn't pay any attention to it.  


Well, it arrived today.  Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a Witter towbar, with towball & electrics kit.  Only thing missing was a bypass relay - but picked that up for another £15 after being advised to fit one (messaged them).


Not bad going, eh?!


This is the one:


Microcat Request

02 January 2015 - 06:41 PM

Could somebody with Microcat do me a favour?

I'm trying to find out if there's a part number for a sealing strip.

The part in question is around the top of the front fog light housing.

It's about 50cm long (give or take) and about a 5mm square cross section. I've found a potential replacement on ebay, but the seller reckons it's only 30cm long. And the part numbers on the label aren't yielding any results
