Fitted this: (Sort of)

I say sort of, because I've yet to properly fit and hide the cabling in the dashboard. Also, I've only got the stick-on windscreen antenna with it, so I'll give it a few journeys and see how well it picks stuff up!

Keep left unless overtaking - Use mirrors and signals when changing lanes - Keep within the white lines - Don't tailgate

Its not exactly f**king rocket science is it?

Well, after one journey from Derbyshire up to Cheshire and back it wasn't too bad really... The signal wasn't too good near to mine once I got going, not bad around Derby and fairly usable around Uttoxeter/Stoke way. Once I got on the M6, it seemed to improve and Planet Rock \m/ was clear and loud! coolio.gif

According to stuff off of the Internet (including www.dabonwheels.co.uk) a proper antenna improves reception no end. Seeing as I replaced the original antenna on my car with a powered one that was supposed to be good (but in reality was toss) I'm going to order and fit a decent DAB one later this week!

Watch this space!

Been a busy bee today...

Replaced rear wheel bearings..borrowed a 3/4 drive socket set..easy with the right tools!

Fitted door mechanism.....what a pain..took longer than both wheel bearings..and...try as I could..and believe me I was gentler than a gentle thing from the planet gentle..but I still broke the bloody speaker grill lug clean off... rant.gif ..still at least the boss can open her door now...thanks to Vantastic for the spare bit

Changed spark plugs...last lot were NGK..62,000 miles and still looked ok..well the point of a couple of the smaller ones had seen better days...

Believe it or not 5 of the 8 plug wells had oil in them..the small plug furthest from the filler cap had so much I could just see the top of the plug...even though I am careful topping up and re-filling with oil I could imagine cylinder 1 plugs having oil in..but the furthest away?..especially if number 3 was dry? Number 1 both plugs gad a lot of oil, indeed the small plug, like in number 4 cylinder was barely visible!

Still it would appear to make a nonsense of saying a mis-fire is caused by oil in number one cylinder plugs!
