Re: Cheap Imitation Mudflaps?

OEM mudflats come with metal clips that go over the edge of the plastic trim and these form a base for the self tapping bolts. There should be no need whatsoever to screw into the metal of the bodywork.

Re: Re: 2018 - 1.2 petrol - MPG - Brim to Brim Test.

Interesting topic. Is the QQ correct in telling you when to shift up/down gears, or is it just a wet finger in the air judgement? I feel the car could benefit from being in 4th at 30mph, but at the same time would hate to be over laboring the engine/clutch. Any more thoughts/views? Certainly not a ...

Re: TPMS problem?

Pjp,how can you be sure there was nothing wrong with the tyre pressures? I have several tyre pressure gauges of varying manufacture and cost, and everyone gives me a different reading.! Mine was set for a full five people load when I bought it, there’s usually only the two of us so I reduced them t...
