Re: Everything electrical....

from what you have said..

all those circuits are fused at the passenger side internal fuse box and the first port of call would be to check that and the one live wire that feeds that.

Re: Problem starting in cold weather

sounds like heater plugs...

Re: Advice on buying a house

My advice would be to sell up , find somewhere to rent and buy in two years.... London house prices are in decline, interest rates will be going up, people who own buy to let will be dumping their property into the market and although it takes time to filter through ... you can clearly see hard time...

Re: Wifes 2006 1.9dci megane convertable will not start

Re: subtle mods to 54 plate megane 1.5dci

not sure how you could make it handle better as when I owned a lotus elise and megane I always enjoyed the megane as it was so smooth on bumpy twisty country lanes and its ABS was a joy to use in corners although I doubt many do... If you want a really cheap mod you can fit spacers in the front coil...

I use a bog standard 7 inch clip on mirror display with 2 AV switchable inputs. AV 1 is used to display an accurate above number plate reverse camera with markings on each representing 2 ft and is perfect for parking ...
