      Incompetence and inertia. But thanks once again for finding the supplier. I was really impressed with their price and delivery speed.

      Thanks to one of our forum members I bought two key shells from the States, which I plan to use as transplant bodies for my existing keys. They came very quickly and were extremely cheap. So you can...

      Clearly there are cars out there with good specs, having been ordered by individual customers and businesses like John Lewis and the BBC. But the cars the dealers are bringing in are low spec because...

      Good call - but then you are a man of impeccable taste. It does go to show that such cars are rare. I haven't seen anything like that and I've been looking. As you know, my P is one of the early...

      I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. You just have to go into the showrooms as you say. There aren't any around and they don't even have any of the brochures in any of the dealers near me.

      I think this is the blueprint. Buy an older one. It's going to be a gamble but they are well built and use top quality parts so as long as you maintain it, it shouldn't give you too much trouble....

      Mine is older than 05 and to be honest it hasn't given me much trouble recently. I still enjoy getting behind the wheel and even the 3.2 version has plenty of grunt. The main problem I have is...

      I've got Falkens on mine and they're perfectly all right. Given the state of the roads where I live, especially with half the village still waterlogged, they do the job. I got mine from Micheldever,...

      Battery is fine. Issue with auto dim has been around pretty much since I bought the car. Harry did a scan at the last GTG and cleared the codes but that made no difference. Dealer doesn't know why it...

      I have exactly the same issue with my mirrors. Posted on here but no one had a solution. Thought was it could be a low battery issue but mine is reading 14 at the moment so I don't think it's that....

      Thanks for that Ray. I have tried WD40 with some success but I think it probably requires the Michael solution so I will have to get some of the dry lubricant and a mate and try that.

    16. Stiff boot (trunk) lid

      Hello Everyone
      You need to be Vassily Alexiev to open my boot these days. Can I just use a bit of WD40 or did I see somewhere that you mustn't?

      It does. It's just the metal ring thing which has snapped off, and I have a second key in any case.

      Well I've ordered two for the princely sum of 5 quid delivered to the UK. Can't be bad. I'm sure I'll work it out. Once again, thanks for the answer. It just demonstrates how good this forum is.
