Re: 20" Propellers different tyre sizes than factory ???

The difference in tyre height from a 265/30 and a 265/35 is only about 13mm or 1/2", not enough to really make a noticeable difference if you hit a pothole hard!

I wonder why the rears are causing an issue and not the fronts?

Re: Post camshaft sensor update

What is it with these supposedly highly trained technicians that they can't find a fault even with all their top notch computerised diagnostic systems to help them out. I think it's disgusting that they seem to just have a stab in the dark as to what the fault is, replace a sensor or two, then charg...

Re: Puncture in rear tyre

I think in that situation I would have 'left it', and drove very gently home on the space saver even if it was 100 miles.

Re: Autocar Review 2021 Model

British cars will never sell well in Britain while the motoring press always slag them off, regardless of how good they really are, while at the same time always making out the German cars are somehow superior, even if they're obviously not. I've owned 2 Audis, both of which were soulless to drive, ...

Re: Puncture in rear tyre

A trick often used by tyre dealers is to say they'll need to take the tyre off the wheel to properly inspect the damage and then, once that is done, they tell you the tyre isn't repairable. You are then pretty much forced to buy a new tyre from them at whatever price they quote - otherwise you're l...

Puncture in rear tyre

Went out to my car this morning and noticed it leaning down on the near side a little and when I got to it, the rear tyre was as flat as a pancake. Upon closer inspection I could see the head of a screw stuck in the tyre right on the corner of the tread and sidewall. I removed the wheel and took it ...

Thanks Colt, will give it a go and see if it's easy enough for a less than enthusiastic car polisher like myself. ;)
Also you probably know but I wouldn’t do it in direct sunlight :oops: :D
Sunlight? What's that? :lol:

Re: Just agreed to trade in my XE

Whatever it is its not finished, it's got a sheet of tarpaulin instead of a roof :lol: :lol:

Joking aside that looks menacing and, with the roof down, will be even more so. Enjoy your new Jag :D

There will always be some tech savvy person who will get past security. The Enigma machine comes to mind and that was a brilliant security messaging system, overcome by boffins at Bletchley Park.
But not in 30 seconds 😂
