    Pro: the ride is nicer.
    Cons: the prices are a hell of a lot higher and it goes wrong twice as much.

    Took her into LR to get the recall carried out. Turns out A255 is to prevent overheating for vehicles with the factory fitted winch and I didn't need the work doing. Which was a faff, but it turns out my bus left the factory with a winch fitted, which is why the computer flagged it up. Shame it isn't still fitted.

    More likely a computer glitch. A P38 with a factory fitted winch? Wiring still there?

    Maybe, my reg never shows up on the system, so a glitch wouldn't be a surprise. I can't imagine there was ever that man P38s to roll out of Solihull with a winch.

    Treated "Buttercup" to an oil and filter change this afternoon, Jesus H Christ on a bike, what a mountain I made of that.
    First off the bowl I had put under the drain point tipped while I was at the side of the car cleaning the plug, couple of litres all over my concrete hardstand.:mad::mad: Plenty of sand to start cleaning it up, couldn't find where I'd put the plug while I was panicking about.
    Found the plug after 20 minutes under the rear wheel, don't remember putting it there. :confused::confused:
    Filled with fresh oil, changed the filter. Who the bleedin ell thought putting the filter with the joint down was a good idea, difficult to get a decent grip on it as well what with all the wires and hoses about. Changed the filter without getting oil everywhere by squeezing plenty of rags around it first.

    Fired her up and realised I had no oil warning light. Turned off, with key on 2, dash lights up but no oil light. At best I suppose I've managed to disturb the sender wire.:oops::oops:

    Moved her off the hardstand and spent the next half hour getting the worst of the oil stain off. The doris said "why not just leave it, it's only a bit of an oil stain" yeah right, "I want to get it clean so I can see leaks as they appear" 4 bleedin hours I was faffing about in total on that. Good job I'm not in business.

    Must admit her name was taken in vain a few times this afternoon.
