The guy came to do the re-map this morning... his computer cant read my ECU!?. He's gone away to call the bloke who writes the maps to find out what the problem is but tbh I'm not sure I can be bothered with him anymore. I kinda expected a professional but it seems hes just a mechanic who bought a cable and a bit of software of the internet... and that worries me slightly.
Now I'm getting old and planning my mid-life crisis in great detail, I treated myself to a BMW. It's very pretty & quick too, but since buying it I have noticed there is nearly always someone in front of you doing 30mph and when there isn't there is a speed camera waiting. When I started driving in the 1980s there were loads of quiet roads to be enjoyed but now it seems every road is busy all day and at weekends. So glad I'm not field based any more. The thought of driving around all day now fills me with dread. I have decided that my beautiful 4-series is a complete waste of money! Should have paid it off the mortgage instead!
I've bought a new car so thought I may as well revive this thread!
I sold the Peugeot some time around April last year and didnt bother to replace it as our Vauxhall Vectra was good enough at the job of ferrying the kids around. Unfortunately, with 115k on the clock the 10 year old vauxhall is literally falling to bits so it has to go!! And in it's place is this:
It's a late 2010 BMW 120i. 2.0, making 170bhp. Factory fitted extras include privacy glass, auto lights & wipers, alpine audio system upgrade & parking sensors.
