Re: Radiator/expansion tank cap

Does anybody know why that sticker was there? Has anyone seen anything similar? Did you buy one, Tom? https://i.postimg.cc/dtLFnPK5/WP-20240217-15-42-14-Pro.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/9QHWf8v1/WP-20240217-15-42-26-Pro.jpg I compared the ERS 34 to the aftermarket one on my car, and it's identical in e...

Probably why he was cruelly cast aside at Radio 2.

Re: RIP Steve Wright MBE

What a shock! I was listening to Sara Cox and they were all in tears. I heard that, it was very touching. It just goes to show how highly regarded Wrighty was, as every single presenter I listened to today cried when reading tributes. Even Jeremy Vine couldn't keep it together, and he's a consummat...

RIP Steve Wright MBE

I was sad to hear of the sad passing of Radio 2 presenter Steve Wright.

Steve must have been one of the most amusing presenters that the station has ever aired. The afternoon slot was never the same since his axing. We've lost one of the giants of broadcasting.

RIP, Steve.

Volvo sell their electric cars under the Polestar brand.
I agree that they could be troublesome in colder conditions though.

Re: Hybrid cars

Is the charging managed through a regenerative braking mode, where a motor linked to the crankshaft acts as a generator when the engine is slowing, recharging the hybrid batteries? That way are you harvesting energy that otherwise would be wasted? That's all I know. Please direct all technology enqu...

All later Mk3s. I'm not sure of the changeover date, but it might have been in '83 or '84. Something like that.

I'm sure that CCI used to have both sizes listed, but they don't now.
I can't find anybody selling the narrow rubbers to fit your large screen.

Re: Misfiring when flooring it from idle - 2l Laser

they must be supplied from a (small number of) `proper` oil companies? I just can`t see them producing a `cheap` petrol for supermarkets. I see what you're saying, but perhaps they produce a base fuel then add extras to their own brands to enhance it? I'm just guessing. I would imagine that pbar is...

Re: Misfiring when flooring it from idle - 2l Laser

There was a TV programme on a little while ago, a serious Panorama type one, in which they scientifically compared supermarket fuels with more expensive named stations, due to the speculation that it differs. It was found to be just the same. Fuel, sold anywhere has to meet a standard and a spec. a...

Re: Six Million Dollar Capri

Nice spot!

Is that a Webasto-type sunroof? At first I thought the black thing on the roof was just a part placed there, but if you look closely through the rear side window there is what appears to be part of the sunroof hanging down. I can't see a hole in the roof though.

Nonetheless, the passing of Ian is a sad loss. Sad also to hear of Johnny Irwin's passing. As Paul said, 50 is way too young to be taken.

Re: she's not the Queen

To be honest, I don't see what people have against Camilla. I'm sure she's a perfectly nice person.
The same goes for Meghan, but people get worked up about what they read in the papers. It's not like she's Cruella de Vil or anything.
