    Hi TC,
    What's sad about wanting a garage!!
    If it's my marital situation you're referring to, don't worry! Here's a clue to how serious I am: www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-reviews/R2O...pf_ov_at_pdctrvw_srp
    I've also got a cracking mistress....

    Yup. We've been slowly building a place in the Auvergne for the past 10 years and I'm now here for the forseeable future, aiming to finish the house this year. Unfortunately, in May my wife is retiring from her UK job, so will be joining me. I'll miss the peace and quiet, but will enjoy the food, as she's a chef.
    I won't be disappearing from the forum though, as Roxy's safely here. As soon as the snow melts we'll be able to start terrorising the area. 
    All I need to do now is get a garage built, so I don't have to talk to the wife outside meal times......

    Merci Olivier,
    Thank you for your input and advice.
    Which French insurance company are you using, please?

    Any ex-pats on the forum who have got experience of insuring their car in France? Roxy's currently on UK plates, but I'll get her onto French ones in coming months. 
    Thanks, Winko

    Hi Dan,
    To me, this sounds like crud / waxing in the fuel system. How old is the fuel? If it's getting on a bit, current colder weather will exacerbate the problems using old fuel can create. Bang some high octane fuel into the tank - in my experience Shell is the best.

    The Moto-build front splitter looks very good. Was it the Elise MkII one you fitted, and how much modification was necessary?

    What tyre pressures did you settle on?

  • If the Union Jack is accurate, you'll be able to tell which way is correct by the flag pattern. Flying 'The Jack' upside down is a sign of distress - which you don't need at Mallory Park!

    For info: The Union Flag must be flown the correct way up. This is with the wider diagonal white stripe above the red diagonal stripe in the half nearest to the flag pole. The wider diagonal white stripe should be above the red diagonal stripe at the top left hand side of the Flag nearest the flag pole.

    Wet track with sleet? Sounds like my honeymoon night....

    Removing the fuse will disable the EPAS, but you'll almost certainly have a dash warning light on. That's the only negative I think. If you're going to spend most of your time trackside, you can bypass the system to get rid of the dash light. Whilst on the circuit, just put a bit of tape over the light, so you're not distracted.

    If you've not already done so, switch the clock and oil temperature gauges, so oil's nearer your eye line. It's a 5 minute job.

    If you didn't get round to fitting the front splitter, leave the spare wheel in place under the bonnet. The extra front end weight helps cornering balance and therefore lap time, more than having a lighter car.

    Let us know how your day goes.
