  • Dear Deirdre,
    I have just bought a Momo Race Airleather gear knob for my car. I haven't fitted it on yet, it's sitting on my desk.
    My problem is that it is strangely tactile and I cant stop playing with it - will this make me go blind?
    Yours etc
    Worried TF owner

    I am probably a wuss but I don't care.Took Buzz for its weekly spin to work and the aluminium gear knob was absolutely freezing again. Couldn't stand it anymore.
    Have you seen the price of these things, outrageous!

  • Mark is doing mine as well. Looking forward to it. How does your sound on deceleration/gear changes? I've already got a custom s/steel exhaust which sounds great at 3000+ revs hoping to add some burble and crackle to it. At the moment it just makes a droning noise when you take your foot of the go pedal. I'm an ex Essex boy (they now call it North London) and even at my age the boy racer streak still exists I'm afraid, but in a sensible way if that's possible!

  • Bloody funny Cobber - genuinely made me laugh. At the other end of the scale from magnetic motors are people like my wife, God bless her cotton socks. She is dammed good at most stuff and works miracles in the kitchen, but, she really is an appalling driver (this probably stems from having zero interest in cars). Bought her a nearly new Fiat Panda 4 x 4 about 9 months ago, so far she has hit a raised island in the middle of the road taking out both offside wheels and tyres, hit someone up the bum (not hard fortunately) and had an argument with a barbed wire fence, so now the car looks like its been in a fight with Freddy Kruger. Naturally, she is not allowed to drive the MG. that doesn't bother her, because 'it's just a car' she says!!! Heathen.

    I'm pretty convinced about the re-map if it works as well as it's claimed. Kmaps will do it for £240, which bearing in mind the amount of money I've spent on the car already, is nothing. Think I'll get my toolbox out tomorrow and whip out the ECU. Might even do a few other little jobs on it whilst I'm there. Only one last problem - telling the wife!
    I think some cars are accident prone. Had a Mondeo 2.0 Ghia X that had done 260,000 when I sold it and was still running, not a single knock in it. My present 'other car' is two and a half years old and has been belted 3 times already, not seriously, but enough to put it in the repair shop for a few days each time.

  • Seem to be surrounded by people with 160's. Still, I take much comfort in the fact my little 135 has no rust bubbles and it's HG is holding firm (famous last words).
    The real reason for this rambling nonsense is that I am seriously considering getting a re-mapped ECU. Opinions please. Are there any downsides? Would really appreciate comments.
    A little knowledge is a dangerous thing and I only have a little knowledge!:-?

  • Thanks Sworkscooper. Not my workshop I'm afraid, owned by Terry who runs TMG Cars - specialses in F's & TF's - very handy as he 's just down the road from me.
