    Glenn's "Cold Turkey" shoot out

    I've been having a few issues with the resident a**hole over the past few months. Wifey informs me, he makes me spend $850 on ciggarettes & $350 on beer per month on average and he's trying to kill me... far out... I know were this could go...... maybe a project or two ? Anyway... yesterday morning I was having a coffee out on the deck at 3.00am with the prick.. and 2 cigs later, he informs me theres no more left... WTF !! you didn't bring any home ??? nup... F.U.T.T... Havent spoken to the prick since. So its a cold turkey run for me ATM...no patches, no pills...just going to do it... and get rid of the a**hole that's been trying to kill me for many, many years... and spend the money on projects that cant kill me. 2nd Day... tolerance levels for idiots have always been a constant "O"... but today I have "O" for people contact altogether.... I've come home early. And .... f**ken smokers are starting to stink.. natural orange juice tastes loverly © oranges & bananas really do taste quite nice and my coffee tastes different ?.... sh*t... both my cars stink too. I'm realy going to fight this...I WANT TO STOP SMOKING

    My New Trolley

    Ordered the new trolley on Friday. Kona Elite 1.6T DCT7 in Pulse Red with Towbar & the full Dura-Seal protection system for paint & leather. Should get it Friday or early the following week. The pulse red is close to BMW's Imola Red. http://www.autocar.co.nz/car-reviews-app/2018-hyundai-kona-elite-review

    E32 Misfire 735il/cylinder down

    Get the rocker cover off and have look... not a cheap fix unfortunately

    E32 Misfire 735il/cylinder down

    Broken rocker arm or ignition cross fire to earth in distributor cap. Have you also checked compression on that cylinder ? These are just suggestions

    735il transmission shifting roughly/no 4th & rev

    A fluid and filter change will not change anything with those faults. A second hand trans or rebuild will be your only options

    E36 Clutch Problem

    From memory it was BNT. I think the longer carrier type was listed under E21 6cyl as apposed to the E30/E36 shorter type

    Who diagnosed the fault ??

    My New Trolley

    I’m really enjoying it. Especially being able to set up the HUD and all the safety parameters. The Elite is the top of the range in NZ with every extra fitted including the Autolink app. Break in period is 2,000km. So no towing or pissing others off with the performance. I had a bit of fun in the demo one I had for a week though. Never thought I’d like heated seats, but the leather can be cold first thing (3 heat settings) All the auto settings are great too along with keyless entry. For a small AWD vehicle there’s not much it doesn’t have for its size and cost.

    My New Trolley

    Go drive one Tom. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the performance of the 1.6T DCT7 AWD version and the handling

    Help needed...

    I know. But it's not going to help you resolve the problem with the info it has given you previously and what you are now getting after doing the initial repair.

    That only applies to cheaper versions of "scanners"

  23. BTW... Wayne has my old workshop number (09) 2722546
  24. Waynes out in Whitford with loan cars Chris. That may be a bit far for you though. He's going to be doing all my servicing now. I've been a servant to the masses for far to long and don't want to be working at home on cars now that I'm retired. The only others I have faith in recommending would be BM Workshop Botany or Grey Lynn
