:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'll be arriving mid afternoon (ish), unless the car dies on the way, and I'll be staying till I'm sober, so probably a couple of months!

Hmm, not sure the two stroke terror will be there yet, least not in a BX. I think our mate has more problems to overcome yet.

He'll probably pinch it off us then give his 16V a battering with it!

Any progress news on his car by the way, did he manage to make the test centre today?

the tossing car isnt going anywhere. Its sat outside the garage waiting to fail its MOT, then it will be another week in the garage trying to get it through, useless french car, there all the bloody same you know! It's the first one thats beaten me though. SHould have taken it to greek street for a £50 MOT (where you pull up outside, get your pass certificate and leave!) it doesn't help that no where round here does anything but cheap leads for it!

Anyways, i'll be there tomorrow in a FIAT (and i'll be damned if i'm parking it on the other end of the site and dragging kit to the field)

Just buy a bloody sensor, smash the old one out, file the rot from the hole, slap some copperslip in there and wham the new sensor in! JOB DONE!

Again though mate, I really am gutted for you.
