Dashcam recomendations

Must be getting near Chrimbo.
Steve earwig is using a Mini 0801, the 0801s is on Ebay 'UK stock'(NOT) for £53

Can anyone else make any personal recommendations?
It must have auto-on & over-write. Not much use otherwise.
Thank you kindly

Re: and today i have mostly been...

So have you run the feed wire round the screen rubber?
And does it automatically run with key on?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

What camera is it, and how is it powered? Roundabouts Vehicles on a roundabout ( sens giratoire or rond-point) usually have priority and not those entering it, who are faced with a ‘Give Way’ sign (‘ Cédez le passage’ or ‘ Vous n’avez pas la priorité’). While it used to be that drivers on the rounda...

Re: Satnavs or what?

just download the maps onto your phone at home using your WiFi - and your mobile will only use the location service, no data used. . This is the nub with phone based Satnavs. Most of them rely on a live data connection which can be lost if you go through poor signal areas. Also some of us are on ti...

Re: Car in garage

or how to check whether it should even be fitted to that particular vehicle or not. This has been troubling me a I'm in search of a 3.0 V6 A4 without DPF. I phoned Audi UK and they were unable/unwilling to tell me which cars have it. After a bit of forum research I found it's given away in the opti...

Re: My brush with the general public (car park ding)

I agree, it is sometimes easier to just let the masses take advantage. To resist the onslaught of ignorance rarely ends favourably. I live by an unrepeatable alternative twist on the expression - 'Strangers are just friends you haven't met yet'. As the happy shoppy I get to endure Aldi's twice a wee...

Bargain Valeo clutch

Valeo 826033 new old stock 54 quid, must be a bargain surely.
Is the 406 like the 405 with the painful 11mm nuts on the D/S support bearing?
Does a 11mm ratchet head spanner make ease of this??

2-EHN Cetane improver

Anyone got any experience with this stuff?
If the internet is to be believed (it isn't) then this is what makes the difference between ordinary Diesel and Posh Diesel.
And no 2 stroke as Diesel additive hyperbole neither.

Re: FAP shown in Service box?

Well spotted that man. and to prove the point, our 406 comes up 'without' whereas the 2.7 407 I've just looked at comes up 'particle filter' Won't be buying that one then, apart from which it sounded very loose for a good 2-3 seconds before the oil struggled up to pressure. Question is were any of t...
