Re: The Rover P5/P5B

Clearly you have never piloted a PV through a car park....
The PV would make the QE2 quite a sharp lady.

Re: Air Con mystery

Most modern climate control systems will not blow air into the cabin when first started. Instead, they will circulate the air within the system until it achieves the desired temperature before...

Re: W109 6.3 vs Daimler Double Six S1

The Jaguar/Daimler V12 is extraordinarily smooth and revs very easily. It does not have the low-down torque of the 6.9 but it does sing through the revs; the two different motors reflect totally...

Re: W109 6.3 vs Daimler Double Six S1

What damned fine cars; both of them. I would have either or both as they do represent truly fine human engineering.

Re: Air Con mystery

You really do need a proper diagnosis to ensure continued delivery of cold air. If you don't want to go down the route of a dealer then why not drop the car down to Paradise and get their tech to...

Re: Car of the week

It might be a shame to see it go to the wreckers but better than that; it should be euthanised. The concept is hideous; the rust is terminal.

Odometer is in miles.
Being a Bentley 8 is OK. Driving it home from the NT would also be OK.
It has had a respray - the sills should be black. No pinstripe is highly unusual. There is also...

Re: Greetings from somewhere above Asia

Quite correct Sean. The 380 flies through a storm and you barely feel it. The same in a Boeing Dreamliner and there is food all over the ceiling.

Re: used car trade in values

What would I get for this 3 tonne lump of iron, wood, aluminium and cow that lurks at the end of the garage?

Patrick - I'm having a grumpy day! Still, I would rather spend this kind of money on a Corolla - or better still, a Peugeot and have something that is more fun.
