Re: Today I mostly .....

With you on that one, it the one thing that drives me mad is rattles, squeaks that those small random noises that just appear then disappear and no amount of intense listening can pinpoint them. Especially the ones that go silent when you turn round trying to find them..... grrrr...... Drove my old ...

Ooooh! shiny!

May the Lord shine benevolently upon thy electrics. These can be absolute shockers for wiring and electrical issues.

A lovely car though, I had a XJ8 4.0 which was awesome.
