Furniture clinic delivery, I may have ordered a little too much

Hello Steve,

That’s a lot of product you have there. Cannot wait to see the results of what you’re embarking on. Good luck with the renovations.

Kind regards,

Tom

It’s just for the existing seats Tom, I bought enough to do them all again and again and again
I may do the steering wheel as well.

filled up for £1.67/l, been driving steadier in 90ATL lately. 435 miles driven and filled up with 32 litres. THink thats 62MPG?, chuffed with that 120bhp remap and 150K on clock. What an engine!
Very doable if you mainly do long journeys on A roads and motorways, keep to 65-70mph max and allow the speed to drop / increase up and down hills without applying more throttle. Otherwise I find it’s more like mid to high 50s if I do shorter journeys and 70 mph on cruise control.

Alison's front dampers have been replaced. A significant improvement in ride and handling, actually.

A couple of other little bits done too.

Faircrouch Garage, Wadhurst is a place I'd highly recommend.

Also had a quote for some bodywork as Alison is sorted mechanically.

Obviously a trip to the coast was necessary to test the dampers and stuff... 😁

Have you seen the BBC News article today on the price of Aluminium.
Never mind the the catalytic thieves, better make sure the whole car is secure.
Good point and I will take this very seriously; there was a spate of Bus Stop Flag Posts in London a while back.

Problem got so bad that parts of London don't use the 'Truform'® designed poles anymore... 😱

Last time metal prices went high I remember the road grid drain covers going missing.
I saw one guy looking upset as he had gone over a missing manhole ,(PC personhole) cover in the road which had taken out a couple of his tyres / wheels on his way into work.

Hi. I see your A2 has done over 250,000 miles. That's impressive even for a TDI - is it the original engine?

PS You need to update your profile as it says "Mileage 126K - 150K" but I see you're on the 200k club - that's the important bit!
