  1. thanks , based on the running gear of the clio so been well tested
  2. trading in our yaris in the next few weeks, up to this year costs were low but the yaris is now 6 years old and required a fair bit of work , not complaining though as in the other two years of ownership had been fine we have ordered a new renault captur similar to the one in the pic 1.5dci but the alloy wheels won't have the black detail and will be a 14 plate model thanks all in the forum, enjoyed my time here
  3. looking like a frosty week ahead in scotland

    My Yaris

    had the yaris d4d for over a year now , 1 failed brake light bulb has been the only issue ,the little car runs like a dream, we recently had relations up for the weekend from Southampton and took them a drive to new lanark, they were impressed by the ride quality , comfort and most of all the space and rear legroom in total pluses all round for our first year of ownership
  5. just done my 2nd partial fuel up and logged all the figures into fuelly > very chuffed with the result ! 58.8 mpg is brilliant lol considering the mrs used it to work for a few days and doesnt usually hang around on the m8 motorway Massive difference from the vx 2.2 vectra !!!!! the moneys better in my pocket than the governments

  7. Hi Gordon, Thanks for your welcome mate, I know Blackridge as I work in Livingston. Nice wee motor you have there and the colours braw too. Catch ye later bro. Rab. lol small world , i,m up in livi aswell > B&Q
  8. My link i got one of the above from ebay , the multi charger can handle all different types of batteries even the square 9 volt ones , we got the D batteries to go with it to blow up a double inflatable bed which they done through a small air pump with ease the gp batteries come available also in a wide range of ah ratings ( the higher , the better ) hope this helps
  9. still using xp so cant use ie9 ,been using google chrome for a few days and just changed over to sky after 10 years with aol so everythings up in the air at the moment
  10. Hi and welcome to TOC oops twice this has happened ~ blames google chrome lol either that or another senior moment tbh probably the second one hehehe
  11. I'd love to see Dario Franchitti try his hand at F1 but I don't see it ever happening unless someone offered him megabucks , hes got a proven track record across the pond and would be an excellent acquisition by some of the top teams and as well as all that he,s SCOTTISH
  12. looking good, white seems to be on the comeback in the last few years and in my own opinion , i think most cars suit white (biased) as ive had a few white vans , rover 827si 24 valve (honda engine) and a volvo s40 only downside is being mistaken for police ! then again the rover 827 si WAS an ex strathcylde police traffic car was great fun heading home from the stockcar racing over at cowdenbeath racewall , the car still had the two small square cut-outs on the centre grill where the blue lights used to be , i could cruise along the outside lane and anyone that looked in their mirror and glim
  13. LOL @ reputation 1 , whats that all about ?

  14. Hi Rob welcome back to TOC
  15. Hi Rab welcome to TOC , I'm just up the road from you at at blackridge
  16. had the lambda censors go in a works citroen berlingo van which activated the van into get me home mode . 15 MPH MAX along a dual carrigeway , I drove it for a few miles and gave up and called our own mechanic who decided to tow it home rather than let me drive it local citroen garage diagnosed the problem as above . the van was also LPG gas converted which is a nightmare and a deathtrap in the winter , the whole fleet of berlingoes had the same problem ( cutting out ) in cold weather leaving you at the wheel with limited brakes and No power steering !!!
  17. Hi great choice of car , had mine for around a month , got to fight the mrs to drive it, she has parked her mazda 3 up on the kerbside and keeps stealing the yaris D4D T SPIRIT !
