  1. When I had this issue with mine I ran a new yellow cable from the ignition switch to the starter which finally sorted the problem. You could replicate this by running a feed from a 12v supply (via a large amperage switch) to the yellow wire connection on the solenoid and see if it solves the problem. I have a remote starter switch which you could use which I can dig out and send you if needed. Hope this makes sense!
  2. For future reference do you know how deep the hole is - this is on my 'to do' list and I do anticipate problems!
  3. Thanks - I'd keep it if I wasn't overrun with cars at the moment! Don't really want the dealers to make a killing on it though. First world problems!
  4. This is my mother's car as she is giving up driving. Piston heads ad here https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/mini/one/2016-mini-one--4304-miles--pepper-pack-metallic-paint-5-year-tlc-package/9791776 Good little car - already a bargain but will do £8.5k for an IB'er if we can move quickly (no offers please - this is what the garage will give me!) Any questions please ask Roy

    Sorry but I think they make you sadder than me! Absolutely beautiful.
  6. Only just - never towed before (it was probably 30 years ago) and got some real swaying going down the M6 - actually thought I'd lost it. Incredibly scary and less than 40 mph the rest of the way. I quickly taught myself about weight distribution nose wheel weights etc etc after that.
  7. I'm getting it and have never had Tapatalk so not sure if that helps
  8. Idle curiosity really. I once trailered a 911 SC (which was on the trailer front first so it was a nightmare journey) to Jaz in Wembley to have tensioners done. At the time Jonas was 'the man' for 911's and looked after another friends race car. A bit of nostalgia!
  9. Slightly OT but any idea what happened to Jonas?

    Hidden speakers

    Probably a silly idea but what about using something like a Bose revolve speaker from your phone? Easy to get a 5v supply to and ours works well at home so may work in the car?
  11. Given the way people manipulate fonts, fixings etc FRED?
  12. Not sure if you're after a stop gap Fraser but I know you like these https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F383016385453 No connection!
  13. Sorry but I'm out - had to bale on two previous trips due to family commitments and we just can't plan any time ahead at the moment. Every time we go to Spain it's last minute rush there and rush back these days. Couple of thoughts though - we buy a multiticket on the Eurotunnel which allows us 10 trips a year for £430 (iirc) they have a system where you can name another person so sharing could get you 5 trips each and you should find it's cheaper than one return. Check the conditions though as we've never shared. Secondly - if you're driving through France save yourself some grief and get yourself a toll tag - we use aprr but loads available. Not stopping at tolls and not searching for cash / credit cards is great and saves an unbelievable amount of time. Lastly - I use Waze and TomTom speed camera apps when going through France - they both warn of speed areas rather than specifically cameras but between them they get most. Enjoy!!

    That is stunning Matt - you've got to be chuffed with how it turned out.
