  1. It never used to make a difference. No doubt part of the charge is for re-documentation.
  2. I bought some diodes and that's as far as I've got, so far. Was it really two years ago. Welcome to the forum.
  3. I thought it better not to say anything about the picture, until Stuart had a copy. Now I can add that I can see that head being shrunk and added to lots of new pictures in the future.
  4. Try sticking it through a bit of pineapple and cheese, and you'll soon find the limitations.
  5. This ^^^^ has always worked. I think people are making money from over-engineering the cocktail stick.
  6. Please get a price for the damage to you your mirror. Even if you are not going to replace it, at least half of your mirror cost will lower the amount you will be contributing towards the other party's mirror. Also, be very sure of the story as you weren't there. A work colleague had a guy go to his house spitting feathers over the work colleague reversing into the guy's wife's car and then trying to say it was her fault. Once the colleague told him where the accident actually happened, that he was waiting to turn right when she hit him, that there was a witness to the accident and also showed the damage to the colleagues car (which didn't match the story the guy had been told), things calmed down. All because the guy's wife didn't want to be in the dog house over an accident.
  7. Ours still haven't worked out how to open the milk though.
  8. My roof is always covered in cat hair but as it's from one of our cats, I have no reason to complain. People have found pepper to be a good deterrent, in the past. I've never worked out how the cat is supposed to use the mill, without thumbs though....
  9. Sad to hear Patt, so I hope you get sorted quickly enough. Regarding the finance on your car, if you sell to a trader then they are normally very happy to work with finance companies. The way it works is you agree a price for the car, you get a settlement figure for the finance, the buyer pays the finance company. The finance company confirm to you that they have received the settlement figure, then the dealer gives you the balance between the finance settlement and the agreed price for the car. Private buyers can often be put off by finance. In these instances it may be better to get a personal loan to cover the finance, sell the car without finance on it, then pay off the loan. If you can sell within a 28 day period and pay the loan back, you shouldn't get charges at all from the bank for the loan. Banks don't like telling people about this clause though.
  10. Good find. I've made it a sticky for you.
  11. Yes. I bought the diode. It's got to wait until after my service, Christmas time, but then I'll see what I can do.
  12. Thanks. I need that too, as one of mine is in the wrong place and so the carpet drifts.
  13. I'll see what power I can pick up from the switch and which bulbs work when.
  14. Not really a help as I'm trying to pick up the sidelight rather than the fog.
  15. Just asked my dad to pick up some diodes for me when he's next near Maplins....
  16. I quite agree. I'm wondering if this hack has been reverse engineered from the factory DRLs on a Gen2 which I think were a cost option. No doubt the little black box that costs tens of pounds was opened up and found to contain a 50p component. My only problem with be working out which wires to bridge with the diode. Anyone want to hazard a guess?
