Re: Front Brake Pad Replacement

I did the inside first, then the outside. This was about 3month...

Re: Low level scrapeing

Sand it. A bit of coarse sand paper to take the burrs off and it doesn't look too bad. I've made mine last 7 years doing that at the end of every year so far.

Re: Headlight use in LHD Countries

As long as it conforms to all the homologation rules, yes you can still ITV right hand drive cars here. We have several in our Classic Car Club that are on Spanish plates, both historic and standard plates. Same in France. The important document is the full European certificate of conformity, which...

Re: V6 tank range

On a euro trip you'll be very unlikely to get anything over 400 miles. 350 is more realistic. I do at least 2 euro trips every year and havent got more than that on most tanks realistically. Why was that though? 23mpg seems pretty low.... I get 22mpg on my daily commute.. Depends on the route i gue...
