Re: Interesting tow cars

For stability and being able to just sit at 60 all day long the Defender is great... As long as it's a light trailer and there's absolutely no hills. I was driving this a couple of weeks ago, the trailer is basically an empty box with a desk in it, so not heavy at all, and on a slight incline (the ...

Re: Interesting tow cars

How much is a shuttle going to weigh fully loaded ? Probably over two tonnes ? I'd always prefer to have capacity to spare [1] so while the A6 might be legal at 2400kg you'll probably find it struggles a bit [2] Another factor if you're getting a shuttle is that with big boxy trailers it really help...

Re: Vodafone

This isn't dropping out, it's just not connecting at all. I was planning on my next conversation with Vodafone being a bit shouty and ending up with me cancelling the contract, but if it's genuinely an Openreach issue I'll feel slightly bad about that, and I'll still have the problem with whoever I ...

Re: Interesting tow cars

You won't get 3500kg with any kind of saloon / estate, you will need a large 4x4.

"Interesting", if you don't want German or Jap, probably means something American.

Re: Vodafone

...Gigaclear FTTP. I'd not heard of them. Sounds great. But I can't get it here because (I assume) I'm not rural enough, and I can't get FTTP from other ISPs because (I assume) I'm not in a sufficiently built up area. D'oh. Also can't get Virgin here. That would have been my first choice right from...

Subsiduary moan - my wife absolutely cannot grasp that wifi and internet are different things.

"Oooh, I've got wifi again"

Then

"It's not working"

At least half a dozen times over the weekend.

Vodafone

Those that obsessively memorise everything that's posted on here will recall that I recently ditched Sky (telly, phone & broadband) and moved my broadband to Vodafone. I'm currently on my fifth day with no broadband and reduced to tethering my phone to my laptop to do anything online :roll: It's bee...

Re: eBay 996 build thread

I've never had the problem with the dash lights, but that said, I keep the car on a charger all the time. Just a cheapie optimate copy from Aldi or Lidl. Works great.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Rear springs are very common on older BMWs. I’ve had several.

The coolant loss is more worrying though, is it an obvious leak ? You don’t want to get into head gasket work.

Which one of that fleet is your daily banger that you don’t care where you park it etc?
Touareg I guess. Did you see the scratches down the side of it after my off-roading adventure ??

Do you still have the Vantage as well SJ?
Yep. Vantage, 996, F10, Touareg & two E36 Compacts.

Vantage, 996 & F10 are all due a service soon. That's gonna hurt :?

Re: Your fleet running reports

You can't beat a good banger. Having a car you don't give two shits about is a revelation for the crappy daily duties. The "I'm not parking there" and "don't eat that in here" go out the window as you smash it up kerb, into tiny spaces do tip runs without worrying about the upholstery. All of this,...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Oh, I’ve read descriptions and looked at diagrams loads of times. Still don’t understand it. Hats off to the folk that design these things ! Going back to the Touareg, it was refreshingly not-expensive to change the oil. VW used a Japanese Aisin gearbox in these which runs on a very ordinary oil. A ...
