Cool The return of he Lag

Well the lag made it back from the south of France and now has 253,000 miles on the clock.

Had to get the aircon regassed while over there (cost 65 euro's in case anyone else has the problem loads of places do it as its damm hot down there) They also topped up the oil free of charge. bloody nice bloke

The car ran superbly and on some occasions I actually dropped down to the speed limit just to give it a rest.

The only other problem was the black plastic cover at the top of the tailgate nearly parted company with the rest of the car (the piece that holds the high level brake light) It was only attached by the screen washer tubing (tough stuff that) Its held on with 2 screws and a load of plastic clips that break (all at once) scary moment

Tip
If you ever want to get a French driver off your tailgate. try that it really works.

Quick trip to the supermarket for a cheap battery drill and some self tapping screws sorted that out and all was well.

Long live the lag.

ps anyone know the French for self tapping screws it could save me time if it ever happens again.

The actual "French" word is "auto taraudeuse" but that doesn't get used much, instead it's actually:

"une vis Parker" = a Parker Screw after the inventor.

plural is "les vis Parker"

Vis (screw) screw is singular and plural like sheep ( & not sheeps)

Screwdriver is tournevis (tourner of screws)

hope that is of use one day (or not)

I noticed mine hitting the 140,000 mark as I drove up north a few weeks ago.

The engine is purring away very nicely for its age/mileage.
