Re: BlueHDI fuel filter

see those 2 bolts at the back? remove them and the metal bracket or else you end up damaging the end of the connector as you unscrew the top :x the 2 pipes come off pretty easy...if it won't come out you've not pressed the release thingies in enough...I think I swore at it for about 5 minutes before...

Re: anyone driven 2018MY 110 vs 130 back to back?

yeah you never know who to believe nowadays, I blame the Russians :lol: Anyway I remember honest john drove a 308 130 some years ago and this is what he said 'The 308's tiny 1.2 litre engine continues to loosen up so remarkably, I guesstimate that it may be putting out something like 150PS rather th...

Re: considering 2018 cactus as my next company car

It was fast in a straight line (and plenty spacious) but ultimately it was 'fat and lardy'; mind you it went around corners better than the Golf VR6 I once had :lol: I like light cars nowadays, reminds me of Mk ! and II Golf GTIs, AX GTs, Clio 182s e...
