Vikan brush - fake?

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but as it's related to Wheels, it's here. Mods, feel free to move to Cosmetics if needed :) I've purchased a Vikan wheel brush to take my car cleaning days to the next level as I don't have the right tools to get in to the nooks with a noodle wash mitt. Has any...

Re: 1 Jag, 2 Phones

My wife and I are both connected on mine. It seems to connect to hers when we're both in the car, and I think it's likely due to hers being added most recently?! Someone else I'm sure will come up with a better reason.

Re: Stop/Start again a few thoughts

My 2 cents... Had my car just under a year. Had issues with the S/S not working at all. Sent it in, recharged the battery overnight, worked for a month or so and went back to not working. Sent back in again, apparently diagnostics had errors with the battery, so it was replaced in September-ish. Sin...

Fuel Gauge Accuracy

Hi guys Maybe I'm being over pedantic on this, but it bugs me and wondering if anyone else has this happening to them. I recently filled my tank up and the gauge doesn't match the figures for: 1) what's left, and 2) how much I've driven so far. So you can see on my trip so far (reset when filling up...

Need an outdoor camera

With two new (to us) cars in our household, I'd like to put up a camera at the front of the house to keep an eye on them. Does anyone have any recommendations for a camera that can perch in an upstairs window overlooking the front drive, that can record when it senses movement on a memory card? Simi...

Re: Alternative exhaust tips.

Hi Leigh

It's been 10 days since I sent payment with no response. If I don't hear back in 5 days, I'll have to start a charge back.

Tried sending this via PM but just sits in my outbox.

Thanks
Paul

Re: Alternative exhaust tips.

Have tried waiting for a reply but no joy. Does anyone else know of any other suitable black exhaust tips around?

Re: Any budding electricians here?

Thanks, all. Will be picking up a new transformer from screwfix on the way home and give that a go.

Am also going to have a crack at changing the 2-pin plug to a UK 3-pin to avoid the unnecessary extension leads.

Any budding electricians here?

Have a bedstead manufactured by a french company so getting any response from them is nigh on impossible! Both of the built-in bedside lights have stopped working suddenly, and I can't figure out which part to replace first. I've not tried the bulbs, as it must be pretty rare for both bulbs to have ...
