So, back to the diesels!

So far I've identified the following to resolve.
  1. Boot handle sticks.
  2. Poor radio reception
  3. Squeeky brakes
  4. Door handles stick open
  5. Air conditioning doesn't chill.
Think I've got the sticky door handles fixed... will tackle the brakes next. Radio reception means taking apart the sunroof motor, which I dont want to tackle right now!

Why's it always pee it down...

...when you're doing work on a car?

40 minutes in heavy rain swapping wheels front to back ready for having the new tyres fitted to the rear. Quick trip to the shops returns a result of very different handling, and a rather eager to break away rear end!

Time to get rid of them racing slicks

... and what a journey!

I'm a total geek when it comes to courier tracking systems, and this one is quite nice. Plus the distance gives it some interest.

Bit of cut n paste with googlemaps and we have this!
