Re: MOT due soon?

As far as I know, the MOT service is classed as an essential service. You should be able to book your MOT with any centre that is remaining open for trade.

Re: Washable filters

If you are just replacing a panel filter, I don't think it is worth the reduced filtration unless you have proven the filter to be restrictive. Also, unless you are racing, doing anything that yields less than a 20% increase is not very noticeable. Aftermarket inlet systems often mess with the way t...

Re: Is your car spending more time being unused???

On the plus side, the roads are significantly less busy now, so makes going out for a cruise to nowhere much more enjoyable.

Re: Interesting Environment Articles Circulating the Interweb..

The interesting bit about this is the fact it is not compatible with older vehicles. I seem to remember having been here before when they stopped leaded petrol (for those of us old enough to remember this). Also of interest is that 15% of diesel sales is red diesel. That seems extraordinarily high....

Re: Speed Limit Reductions

Being a car enthusiast gets harder by the day. Creeping speed limit reductions are common everywhere these days. Add in legislation reducing the availability of decent engines and the obsession with autonomous / electrification BS, it's enough to consider emigration.

Re: Dragy

Interesting, might have to give Dragy a go. Maybe a silly question, but what's the best way to get a good launch off the line in an automatic? My XE-S is my first auto, stands to reason that holding your left foot on the brake and building the revs before releasing would be the best way to do it, b...

Re: Best MPG You've Had?

Has anyone experience a drop in miles out of a tank? I used to get 400-420 miles from a tank many months ago (last I checked properly was summer). But in the last couple of refills, I've only been managing about 320 miles out of the tank. My commute to work is only about 6 miles each way , I'm usin...

Re: Beware if you are up to no good

Personally, I don't use my own car when going out to murder someone. If the sat nav in the Rangie is as good as the one in the XE, maybe he meant to murder someone else... :lol: :lol: :lol: Another one to bear in mind is clearing previous destinations in the sat nag. Very handy for upcoming divorce...
