I must admit I relish the prospect of Cornish lobster, scallops, crabs etc being available at better prices in England when the export markets to Parisians to eat just " dry up "

On the 12 March, we went over to Scotland (from Holland) to spend a couple of weeks with friends and family. On the 19th I received a text from the ferry company saying 'The last ferry from Newcastle

Why on earth would a country like Iceland, with all its fish stocks, buy scallops from Argentina?

 

The world has gone crazy!

Dropped the lexus at the wheel refurb company. 2 sensors came out fine but other 2 must be cut out as they seized. Grrr!

Phoned Lexus Glasgow, they can change both sensors and code them in for £290! Ouch!

Waiting on a price from the wheel company garage, may be they can provide a cheaper alternative.

Just an update, had a phone call from the wheel refurb company, apparently only 1 sensor is required and all in with the coding will be £65 on top of I am paying for the wheel refurb, not too bad! I would pay Lexus about £150! 

I also hope the garage didn't take advantage of me, I use them 1st time, and decided to make some money on me. Will be checking my sensors, at least visually! 🙂

I had the same thing happen when I had my wheels refurbed.

In the end the garage got a genuine part fitted for £75 and I coded it myself.

Unfortunately, it does seem that they can get quite stuck in there apparently.

Perhaps along with regularly checking the caliper pins we should be putting a drop of penetrating oil on the tyre valve stems?

The car is back with me, it was only one sensor that need replacement. I didn't have a chance to check the work they have done on the wheels neither to check which sensor they have changed as it was dark and raining, hopefully this morning will be dryer so i can go outside and have a look and take a photo.

I also wish to give a car a proper wash but the weather disagreeing with me, it is cold, frosty over nights and roads treated so the car will get dirty pretty quickly if I go even for a short drive. It is clean inside though, i usually clean inside once a week.

If it was easy to do or if I knew for a fact that penetration oil would do the job I would be doing this on a regular basis!

Clean MOT Pass yesterday afternoon.
Only done a little over 4,000 miles since the 5th Jan 2020.
Only mentioned (not reported) issue is excessive tyre wear on inside of the front left tyre.
Probably just needs an alignment check and a new tyre.
Not urgent as the inside still has 3mm tread (5mm elsewhere).

The MOT tester asked if I wanted to sell it. When I said no, he told me all the LS owners say that. I pointed him at this forum and he said he'd have a look as he's wanted one for some time. He said he loves testing them as they have so little rust underneath and just feel solid and well built.

I refurbished the wheels on Wednesday, yesterday I removed 2 front ones to clean/wash them and then applied a coat of PoorBoys sealant and some tyre shine, Ive got 2 more wheels to do, hopefully today, weather permitting as i hate doing half the job!

And it is done, rear alloys are done too! 

To be honest the car needs washing but it is too bloody windy and occasional rain doesn't help either! Will be waiting for a better times! 🙂
