Thanks for the Video Link Fabian - It put a smile on my face, while waiting for the Tow Truck to turn up (again) to take my "Real" car to the repair shop!. - (He turned up with a car already being towed to the garage - dooohhhh) - So now got to wait ANOTHER hour (or more?), before he returns!

- So is Life! :?
Kind regards,
MC

Don't talk to me about cars, apparently some bright spark in Japan decided 12 years ago to stop using distributor caps and put the ignition coils directly onto the plugs on Nissan's, end result is if one goes down, it's £100 for a new one from Nissan (£400 if the whole lot crap out), half the price from Euro Car Parts, but still too expensive.

Fortunately I have a baggy coat and managed to sneak 3 out the scrap yard while paying £10 for the fourth (well if one goes, likelihood the others will at some point too).

Then had to spend an hour on google trying to find out how to reset the engine management light on the dash, to only find out through trial and error that disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes has the same effect.... :lol:

2/3rds of a day, 5 mile walk, new plugs, new ignition coil on #4 and a new air filter, and the car is finally not sounding like a tractor...

Hehe, funny to see those overblown commercial from the 80s :D ; thx Fabian for bringing back the memories.
Back in the days (when I went to elementary school) I played that game on my father’s C-64 :arcade: .

Hmm btw we are sliding off topic, aren’t we?
:think: …just to make sure we are:
Here’s a racing game from 2003 where everything went wrong :shock:

After watching the desert bus review, I gotta say, we have to built a desert bus mod for NR2003 :|
