Guuess it's not illegal strictly speaking, but it can be in a motorway situation - if not under 'AVG speed' or 'stay in lane'

Has anyone been booked?

How else do u pass all the middle-lane hoggers

Lovely interior - finally one to match the competition.

Front looks good, the grill is becoming bigger but still nice there's character.

Rear end never was great after they straightened it to get 7 seats in.

the tail lights are a desaster. Done away with their so called 'signature' L-lights?? What's going on even the M8 has the L-light. This looks like the ford s-max's rear end.

huh? meaning your kill switch doesn't exactly 'kill' everything? - how else do the front terminals have connectivity with the battery?

Kill switch installed and working, not much use as the battery is too low, will wait for ECP Easter discount before I pickup the battery.

So the wires being so thick did present problems, the cable is a little thicker then the OEM lead, was tough getting 2 of them throw the metal plate and under the seat, managed that.  Also being so thick they are quite tight when taking the seat down, so they don't move easily, so screwing the switch too the back seat could be a problem.  Need to get a little velcro on the switch plate that should do the job nicely.

well done, and u did it urself not Sanj? lol, where are the  :camera:

Guys, my beloved is treating me and the kids (as part of my 50th) to a 5 day trip to New York  :)

Never been and will definitely be visiting the 911 memorial and Statue of Liberty, but what else?

Any experiences?

Thanks

How about...
Climb the empire state building
Go for a walk in the Battery Park
Visit Time Square
Visit Central Park (this is huge, maybe rent bikes)
Walk along Broadway you will find massive stores by almost every brand imaginable.
911 memorial has an observatory - go if the sky is clear
Rockefeller center
Natural history museum where that movie was themed - forget the name now
Helicopter, boat tours
U can even do day tours or rent a car and drive to Washington and back

Damn smoke alarm went mental at crazy AM in the morning, so had lots of thinking time.

If extending the ctek after the block may be an issue, why not just extend the wire before the ctek on the normal power cord as thats guaranteed to work and I only need cable and connectors?

FYI - Disconnecting the Sat Nav DVD, pulling fuses 72,73,75 maybe 74 too seems to have made no difference, after a full charge on CTEK, 24 hours later I tried to start which it did but was a real weak turnover, so the above did nothing.

Another point old post on this but I'm using Bosch S5 which just past its 5th year now, and I have had to replace this 3 times in the 5 years due to faulty cells, going on form I would assume the current battery is probably knocked some cells out too by now.

Wondering if buying a new battery not Bosch for sure might help at all, I see Duracell also had 5 year, what do you think? In fact thinking to go for one of the AGM ones, seems to fit my profile of use better.

Well, the risk of 230v cables, CTEK outside,  exposed to the elements..

Kinda off topic but on the thought of changing battery and leaving my bad luck with Bosch S5's.

I started thinking AGM battery Duracell AGM about £180 5 year warranty, then I came across this Halfords lifetime battery non AGM

http://www.halfords.com/motoring/bulbs-blades-batteries/car-batteries/yuasa-lifetime-guarantee-019-black-12v-car-battery

Giving lifetime they got to have some hell of confidence surely?  Confused again.

Think they mean the usual lifetime of a battery, not your lifetime :)
