    My car has been quite lumpy lately in early gears when its cold. Although my SAI is on its way out so not sure if thats related to it.

    I am looking for the same idea but for the boot of mine. As it's a fibreglass boot and no locking mechanism I want one just to fit in the hole

    Personally I wouldn't go for iridium plugs. Basicly. They say they last 2-3-4time longer than normal plugs. They may well do but this is because irridium is a hard metal and poor conductor. They way it works is the softer the material the better conductorso better the spark. But the spark wears away the electrode. Silver plugs are brilliant but don't last as long as say normal ngk plugs. Nor do copper 9nes but they last longer than silver.. now the other end of the scale is thing like irridium. It wears slowly so lasts longer but the spark isn't as good so the "explosion won't be as big so less bang less power. It may not be notice able it may well just be 1-2 but at the most but if your having problems I would just go for standard spec ngk or Bosch as they are both well up for the job and that's what they would have left the factory with.

    The iridium thing baffles me. It's so rare that there are years they can't even dig any out of the ground, and the most we can produce is 3-4 tons per year...

    ...and we use it for spark plugs.

    It’s probably a minuscule amount mixed in with other metals then advertised as Iridium!!!!!!

    Went to remove my mirror cover and respray it up with 2k as it flaked badly from sitting in a dealership. Simple task...

    Turns out my DS mirror doesnt fold in... because the prat before me broke it and decided using some form of rubber glue to lock it in place is a good repair! Might be why my mirrors dont adjust from the switch inside:no:

    I should have taken a 'before' photo, but I'm sure you can imagine what fifteen years' worth of black crud caked to the inside of a windscreen washer reservoir would look like...

    I can't remember the last time my loo looked that clean...

    All sorted and put back in the car now though. Gave it a good scrub first off with boiling water with some vinegar added, scrubbing as best I could with a dishwashing brush and a toothbrush, and then let it soak for a while with boiling water and bleach. Took the scuttle off too and put compressed air through all the hoses. Used one of those TePe flossing brushes on the nozzles too just to make sure they weren't blocked.

    The funny thing is that when I took the reservoir out of the car, it was more or less empty. I'm guessing that the sensor was so gunked up it couldn't tell if there was water in there or not.

    Took half the day to do it mind, but at least that's one less thing they're not going to fail me on tomorrow.
