Hmm, rode the SV to work and back and it's got an annoying misfire I need to track down. The GT is running fine at least.

SV's are prone to misfires at the front due to water getting in around the plug lead aren't they?


I'm finding the cheapest way to get my car trailered/A-framed to a garage to get it sorted. I've gone as far as I can with the immobiliser problem & it needs diagnostic equipment.

I bit into a bacon roll this morning & my manky back tooth split :( aches rather a bit now & might mean having to see a bloody dentist which I hate.

See, That wouldn't have happened if you were "one of those" who didn't eat bacon ;) ;) ;)

If I hadn't eaten the bacon, then the mushroom or sausage would have done for it...

Yep I know but I don't think it's that as I've got an extended mudguard.

Anyway, the GT is running nicely at least. I picked up my youngest from sports yesterday and he asked why I was revving up the GT while we waited at the lights, "I like the sound, " I said.

He wants me to get a racecan for the SV also.

Got surprised by the RAF last night. The QRA Typhoons went over us from Coningsby, never realised sonic booms could be so loud. They made interior doors rattle & cracked the plaster upstairs in a couple of places.

I fed the zombie car some braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiins! it's now alive.

Bloody french shite. The ECU are all coded together & can't be recoded, so when the body ECU died I had to get an engine ecu, body ecu and steering lock all together off a single car to swap out. Oh & a new keycard too.

The new keycard has no working buttons so unlocking or locking the car is a pain (can only be done from the passenger side). So next I learn how to rebuild them.

Why do people by new shite?
