  1. Wrong tyres! Amazing. At Costco, they refused to fit -Michelins!! - on our Micra because of the rating. Not on a hyper-car, a MICRA! Good to hear you can now fit in a car easily. Comfort/ease of access vital when you're +50 (ahem....) My reason for looking at Nissan Cubes! And RX350s-lpg - on here. Comfort! (Sez the ex owner of 4 Citroen DSs)
  2. If you don't mind only 2WD, it's cheap? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2006-TOYOTA-HARRIER-LEXUS-RX300-3-0-V6-PETROL-LPG/282924223886?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D49131%26meid%3Dee1b8e1b013d45b78455161de3c6e0e1%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D173229152942%26itm%3D282924223886&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  3. Road Tax

    Politician? Maybe just the Civil Servants who recommend these things to 'increase revenue'
  4. Turn the aircon off! It thinks it's WINTER in there! (-:
  5. Now....look outside, the sun is shining........
  6. Check tyre pressures too. sometimes it's the simplest thing....
  7. Love it. I've just leant about greasing pins! I recall my old Citroen DS was so front-brake oriented that the rears sometimes seized for lack of use-you had to remember at MOT time! Memories of driving barefoot with just big toe operating the brake BUTTON!
  8. I've got some old French plates I took off my 2CV van, in 1979..........still in my garage...... John-where abouts are you? I lived near Ronda for 6 months in '93. Have driven there in both a Jeep Cherokee and a Citroen CX 2500.
  9. Contentment -almost! Little niggles are annoying! I had tyre hassles and (more than one) tyre centres little help. You're too far away from Tony Bones to get a full car set-up, though I'm guessing the 'Hunter system' must be something on those lines? enjoy. (Mullins in Gloucester are good.) Have you considered getting lpg fitted? Enjoy Skye; I've been tempted by an RX350 lpg car that's up near Arran-want to collect it for me? (-:
  10. France seems ahead of us (surprised?). Paris has a fleet of EV cars (with super capacitors to extend range0 and they want to ensure all charging points are 'universal'. I recall in the (19!)70s that France were investing heavily in Atomic power, whilst Britain frittered away its Oil bonanza £££s.
  11. Favourite/'Dream' cars?

    This week's 'Observer' car bit mentions the author's wish for an E Type Jag as his 'dream' car. I had mine early! (Citroen DS23, in 81). Currently? well, I've had the DS, but maybe a Mehari. ds garden.bmp
  12. 400 floor mats

    Got some lovely all-wool off-cuts in my garage........
  13. Is it safe to leave waxing until tomorrow?

    Until 'tomorrow'? !! I once left wax on .....over winter! Was LOVELY when taken off! (On a Dyane!)
  14. 400 floor mats

    Simple concept, really. The amount of ads (looking at RX350s) that have mucky/worn carpets in pictures. Would add ££s to perceived value. 'Deep pile'? Just put some rubber underlay beneath?
  15. 400 floor mats

    I reckon, with a sewing machine that can do heavy duty edging, you could make special custom mats! Your name in silver/gold thread, etc.? My DS 23 in 70s had lovely deep squishy carpets. So some shag-pile?
