Thank you very much, that's superb!
Took car for a special MOT.
Passed with zero issues.. was the obvious outcome.
Arranged for a new windscreen thanks to a tipper truck I was following.
Only lasted 2 weeks
Took my cars voice box out in case it breaks down. Not chancing any warranty claims being thrown out at the moment.
It was a special MOT. It's a bit different than a normal MOT.
Because the cars special.... O.o
How much of a shed is this heap that you constantly have issues to fix, are always chasing faults, and now you have to have a special MOT to keep it on the road.
What are you on about?
Constantly having issues to fix? I've had very few. Also I've not done anything but service it for months.
It's a very fine example of an MPS, bodywork in good nick, engine running great, no turbo issues like most, doesn't loose oil, gearbox running well...
No heap here...
Why wouldn't it pass an MOT?
Why does it require a special MOT?
Cat failed last year. Removed it. Looking for a replacement at a reasonable price.
Yeah.... Maybe you could make that work if you didn't have multiple posts in this thread and other threads about the (numerous)issues you've had with it.
Got sprayed twice by grit trucks in a 30min drive....arghhhhh
I am the least mechanical person in the world so today has been a big day for me!
The old golf was coughing and the engine light came on. Plugged in an OB2 reader and got error code P0401 - EGR problems. A new one is £100+, ebay specials £25+. A few Youtube videos later my Dad and I take off the EGR and get it cleaned up using carburettor cleaner (I think) and put back off, clear the engine codes and yay it's been fine since.
Mission 2 was getting started on doing something with my broken BMW. Many many things to do but something easy to start with - getting central locking fixed by sending off the GM5 module to get repaired. Fiddly to get out but not complicated.
You will live again BMW!
Fitted two little plastic clips which inexplicably cost £2 each.
My side window decided to self-detonate today after washing the car. Can only assume it had some stress fractures from time, owing to it being a frameless design soft top.
Bloody pain in the arse anyway, got Autoglass booked to come for a new one on Thursday. Pinching the other halfs car for the week
Picked up a new interior for my nearly poverty spec F30 - leather seats and door cards to replace the horrific looking cloth seats. All in good condition with no scuffs etc which is good so the plan is to fit it all tomorrow.
The only thing is that they need a damn good clean. I must admit that in any of my other cars that have had a leather interior I never bothered doing anything with it as even after years of many, many miles they still looked fine. What's the best way to go about cleaning them up? Soft cloth and warm water for now and then some proper leather care product when I get some? Or just leave it until I get some proper stuff and if so, what do you guys suggest?
Pretty much just a damp mf cloth. But that's more for maintenance, if it's nasty at the minute you might be better off with a cleaner and condition from LTT or Colour Lock
All issues that I've fixed.
Also, many of them are not really issues for most people, I'm just ANAL about noises
