    General Chat
    If you do watch it you will have seen the Honda S2000 what they did this week?

Anyway good on the bloke as it...

  9. Does anyone on here work in the parts dept at a dealers?

    General Chat
    I have a bit of a favour to ask and I think that directly calling a dealers may be a bit cheeky. I'm having a few issues with the abs system on my scenic and suspect that the abs ecu has failed but I can't 100% rule out the wiring. A local independant has offered to connect up another ecu...

  14. Our forums know more about our Renaults than the dealer!

    Wheels & tyres
    Hi, OK so I'm looking to fit tyre pressure sensors to my Mégane, after I heard from a forum member that he has done this to his Meg. It's very easy, it's just a case of checking whether or not an RF receiver is built in to the ECU. If so, the feature can be activated, the sensors coded in and...

    Hi all, after reading alot of threads on here and through my own experiances I have come to the conclusion that dealers are more interested in making a buck rather than looking after their customers and their cars, please someone prove me wrong!!!!
  16. Dealers and Low Oil Pressure!

    Nearly 2 weeks ago, I took my Grande Scenic into my local dealer as soon as I got a "Low Oil Pressure" warning on the dash. They advised me that it was almost certainly just low on oil. I disputed that, (as they had serviced the car only 4 weeks previous) but they assured me to put oil in it and...
