The correct part doesn't seem to be available to buy new, however there is one for a Honda Civic is readily available and cheap, that looks exactly the same externally - does anyone know if it fits? As an ...

Re: Paintshop recommendations

I've only ever used 2 body shops in the West Midlands. Mick Hadley's, who originally did the lower half of the car and the rear sill replacement. It was a good job. They spray everything from fibreglass race cars to light aircraft. They know what they're doing. https://mickhadleyautos.co.uk/ I used ...

Re: Humour

I decided to go bowling yesterday.

I got chatting to the lady who handed out the shoes.

I asked her if she worked there full-time, but she said she was just ten-pin.

Re: Immobiliser stuck on

It'll be the 5AS unit, not the engine ECU. Since you can't seem to register remote keys using PScan. One thing though. It could also be a set of faulty key fobs. Either the batteries (CR2032) have gone flat, or they've gone faulty. Have you got a *known* (definitely) working fob with a good battery ...

My girlfriend said she wants to experiment more in the bedroom.

Unfortunately, she's decided I'm in the control group.

Re: Engine oil

I put Millers 10W40 NT in my gearbox the last time it was refilled. It used to meet the specs for MTF94, although I'm not sure if they claim that now from what I can read off the pictures of the current product. Their "Trident Professional" 10W40 meets MTF94 specs now. I would be interest...

I went to a zoo yesterday, but the only animal they had was a dog.

It was a Shih Tzu.
