I really thought that was the end of this forum. Glad to see that is not the case.

I think the ability/ inclination to repair and service cars is disappearing fast- given that a runner can be had for next to nothing, but the insurance. tax, Mot etc will set you back at least another grand.

However, this forum has a wealth of sound info. stored in its archive- shame if it got lost.

 

Just as an example of the lack of interest in car maintenance, I've just upgraded my Diagbox laptop. And I put my old kit, v.7.02 Citroen/ Peugeot up to 2010 all up and running including the HP laptop on Gumtree, £130 all ready to go to work.

Apart from a few calls from folk trying to get a free key programming session, not one genuine call.

they thought it was all over,

it isn't now :)

well done admin for sorting

 

still have 3 xsara pics , enjoy working on them , and such useful practical cars,

the forum and members have been a great help in keeping them on the road.

 

they're not worth anything but who cares , I'll keep them going until an expensive repair is needed.
