Re: New owner and a query

Don't know if it works for you but I tend to clean the black bits with a spot of petrol and then wax the black bit up with simonize. Autoglym also do an alloy wheel sealer which is reasonably effective. I'm sure somebody has a better answer as petrol is almost always my default cleaner when the fanc...

Re: Would be Cactus owner

Had mine at 4 months old with 6k miles. Ex Thrifty/Lookers. There's a good chance that an ex rental is a good buy. Most mileage will be A road or motorway, not bashing about on local B,C or cart tracks. It will have balance of warranty with it It will have been serviced. Even though it's not yet got...

Re: 3 years and 13k miles...a running report

Just don't expect to get the mileage out of the leaf, my boss had one it was supposed to do 130 miles on a charge. He never got more than 98. It was always a bit of a laugh watching him trying to park by a window so that he could charge it up off a 13amp socket so he could get home😂

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.

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...
