Re: My Cactus refused to start from cold

Cold and difficult to start. Look at the simple things first. Is the battery still good. If you have a friendly garage nearby, see if they could check the voltage and amperage of you battery. It's not unknown for them to fall over in less than 2 years. And the charging voltage from the alternator wh...

Re: puretech tuning

Fraid not. KN/M or millinewtons/sq.M Torque-Angular momentum or surface tension-surface stress can't see what the connection is in this context. Not sure what your getting at. I suppose that surface tension can be considered as Force per unit length and can be applied to solids as well, but that's a...

Re: What is under the bonnet?

Ok going to upset folks now but that check list is little more than the checks done for the MOT. So is it more than filter and oil change. Things like spark plugs should be good for 60,000 miles. Mine will go to my local shop after 3 years, but then I have know them since we we're kids and I trust t...

Re: Replacing rear light unit

Really straight forward.
Read the manual as the only naddy bit is removing the bolt. A spot of grease on a socket to keep the nut in the socket when you withdraw it helps.

Not many countries in Europe have no speed limit! none that I've noticed in France , Belgium, Germany and Spain in the last 40 years of driving on the continent! But lets not let the laws of Physic...

Re: Facelift Cactus vs Pug 308 petrol power what gives?

Shows what a good package the proper Cactus is.110bhp and 0-62 in 9.3 sec.
And 70mph is the max speed you legally need so 120/130 makes no difference.

Just saying!
