    Sticky speedo

    Heeeey, My car's got another problem (yawn!), the speedo has started sticking. Has happened twice now, both times when it's been hot and the car has been sat in full sun. It goes up slower than the actual increase in speed (according to GPS speedo) and won't go back down to 0. This is fixed by...

    Had a fight with a car wash :(

    My spolier is knackered. Yes, I know I should have washed it myself, just wish I'd used the jet wash rather than the lazy option. Think the hot weather melted the glue in the middle, and the brush lifted it off. I've filled in a claim form, but don't hold out much hope. Do you guys reckon it's...

    If you have a mobile with free minutes...

    ...but that charges a fortune for calling 0845 / 0870 numbers etc, then I'd suggest you keep this web page in your favourites - it lists the 'normal' landline numbers so you can get them on your free minutes ;) Shamelessly pinched from another forum, but I figured...

    Driveshafts and CV joints

    Driveshafts and CV joints - updated question Couple of questions My CV boots / joints weren't put back in right, and even though they've been repacked with grease both sides, they're still clunking like a mofo. Do the inner CVs go as often as the outers, and is having the outers done likely...

    Paid for MP3 downloads

    Does anyone use a paid for MP3 download service? If so, which one, how much, and is it any good? I was thinking of using Napster, but I don't like that fact that you can't listen to the songs anymore if you're no longer subscribed to Napster.

    Another CV joint question

    Hiya, Had a CV joint and boot done on one side, and boot only on the other side about a week or so ago, and no car clunks like hell when cornering. It's only for the first few turns (like turning out of the drive and the end of the road) then it's ok. Possibly sounds more like it's coming from...
