Re: Mini AUC - R56 JCW

I understand and agree with what your saying but I think he's asking us for advise how he should or if he can get the issues resolved rather than us stating what he should or shouldn't have done when he collected the car.
Let's try and help.

A bit heavy Sonic. You can find faults on a brand new car once you get it home. Non of us are perfect.

Re: Mini AUC - R56 JCW

Looks like the car has had paint.
It's entirely up to you but if your so unhappy with the condition of the car is it possible to return it ?

Re: Pressure sensor on brake servo

No coding is needed to remove the error. As soon as the sensor is replaced it should clear
Speaking from experience as I changed one.

Plastidip them as a trial. Easily peeled off if you decide otherwise.

Re: Shocking M2 depreciation

It's beginning to look as if he's just here to create and argument. Not a very good one at that. Yep I don't really get it :confused1: Always seems to be a thread in every forum that attempts to convince us that we have made a huge mistake and bought the wrong car. :roll: Hand them all back, flood ...

Went up in smoke a few months back Barrie. They are going to rebuild it eventually but it won't be ready this year.

Re: The Northern Romp 2018 2nd Of September

Looks like the Romp is slowly starting to get some interest

If your 100% in please post your name and we can get things organised .

We will have to find somewhere else for breakfast at the Hartside Cafe is still in ruins after the fire.

Re: Shocking M2 depreciation

I was always told if you have to ask the cost then ask yourself if you can afford it.
Not knocking the OP but this seems the case to me. If he's bothered about depreciation which is part of the costing then he shouldn't buy it outright but go on the PCP route and hand it back at the end of the term.

Re: Shocking M2 depreciation

Depreciation is only a factor if your planning on keeping the car short term.
If it’s a keeper and you own it for six or seven years then you will have had your money’s worth.

It’s PCP that’s killed cars second hand values.

Re: Trouble fitting chargepipe

Is the O ring seal on the new pipe or the part it locates to.
Sometimes O rings swell and need replaced.

Re: Where do you keep coins?

I use one of these.

Mens Quality Leather Coin Tray Purse Wallet (Black) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01753H5GG/ ... sBb8XMD2BK

Just keep a few £££ in it and leave it in the car. Rattle free and always handy.
