Timmus in the South East - Summer 2021

Hello good people of A2OC,

The easing of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions means that, once again, I am able to travel to provide A2 services. I'd like to thank everyone who has brought their A2 to me over the last months and supported me during these challenging and uncertain times. It is much appreciated.

I'm acutely aware that I still owe a number of club members replies to their messages. Unfortunately, being my own secretary, I can struggle to reply to private messages promptly when work is busy. Rest assured, no message goes unanswered and I will get back to you. Thanks for your patience.

From Friday 11th June, I intend to base myself in Leighton Buzzard, just to the north of London. Massive thanks are owed to @Proghound for allowing me to work and sleep at his house. The length of my stay in Leighton Buzzard is determined solely by the demand for my time; there is no strict date in my diary by which I must depart. From previous experiences, my stays usually last between two and three weeks.
It is also my hope/intention to visit @Ami’s workshop in Horsham. This will make my services available to some club members who aren't able to get to Leighton Buzzard. Leighton Buzzard is the default location for all unless otherwise arranged.

I shall do my utmost to fulfil as many requests as possible. However, please be aware that there are some limitations to the range of services that I can provide when away from home. For example, some upgrades require parts that I won't have the space to transport. Some parts may be out of stock or unavailable due to Brexit or the continued impact of the pandemic. I also cannot complete all upgrades at weekends, so I'd be grateful if Saturdays and Sundays were left available to those with no alternative. The final limitation is that there's only one of me, for which many are surely much relieved!

At the bottom of this message, I have tagged many club members who have made contact with me in recent months who may appreciate my greater proximity. However, this is not an exhaustive or exclusive list; my services are open to all who are able to meet me.

For those who are unfamiliar with my services, an overview can be seen here:

Kind regards,

Tom

Hello Tom. Thank you so much for the comprehensive message. I would like to book my 1.6fsi for a "proper" cruise control installation, please.
The afternoon of either 15th or 16th June would be preferable. Can you let me know if one of these might be available, please ? Many thanks.

Hi Stephen,

The afternoon of Wednesday 16th June would suit the schedule nicely.
@Mka306 ...are you also able to attend on Wednesday 16th?

Cheers,

Tom

Just registering an MK stop by Tom, as discussed previously.
Hi Darren,

As the schedule stands, I'm driving down to Leighton Buzzard on Thursday 10th. Assuming that our schedules align, perhaps I can remove your car's headlining on my way down? That'd give you maximum time to solve any underlying issues before the reinstallation.
If that doesn't work, you're not exactly far from Ian's place, so I've no doubt an opportunity can be seized. :)

Cheers,

Me.

@timmus I'm sure getting nearer the time I will be able to drop down to @Proghound for an afternoon, I could do with an update on ColorDis and also the heated seats need wiring up on BB.
I could swear I've installed the heated seat wiring looms in BB before, but I do lose track of what I've done on each A2 in your collection. I presume the climate panel has the heated seat controls and that the heating elements are already in the seats?

It'll be good to see you. I'm awaiting on replies from others before I start to assign jobs to slots. :)

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom, I'm also looking for a slot while your at LB for a colour DIS to go along with the cruise you fitted last year.
Thanks
John
I hope to see you again, John. As mentioned in Post 35 of this thread, I've received more requests for Colour DIS than I have clusters available at this time, but I'm hoping a resolution can be found. Watch this space. :)

You installed it in Anna's car, but with BB it's always been a "we'll do it next time" job.

Yes, I have a climate unit ready

Hi Tom, hope all is going well..... a big yes please from me, i can go to either LB or Horsham as can be flexible. Ideally a Friday, a Saturday or a Monday would suit me if you are able to book me in ? Cruise control fit and possibly a colour DIS. Thanks Tom !
Does the afternoon of Friday 11th June suit you? There's a suitable gap in the schedule, but if that doesn't work for you, I can find alternatives.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom,

I know you are swamped with requests for bookings, but as I only have a short window to arrange time off could you let me know if 25th June is too late for you and I need to arrange a date earlier for my dis install?

Hi Steve,

The morning of Friday 25th is reserved for you, sir! Thanks for your patience.

Sent from the future
Love it! :D

Watching Tom ..... if it helps I'm flexible for any appointment.

Tom, just one thing to add to the above .... ideally the later the better for me on the day please - but I’ll go with whatever time you can fit me in.
