  1. Voice Synth

    Morning all How do I know if my car is meant to have the voice synthesiser? Its a 2005 Initale car, and I have no idea if it is meant to come fitted or not. Thanks. James.
  2. Fully Synthetic 5w 40 in '04 Laguna dCi 120 - a bad idea?

    Engines
    Will fully synthetic 5w 40 do my 04 dCi 120 any harm? I'm thinking of Shell Helix Ultra Diesel, which is very reasonable for 5l. For some reason, I have it in my head that the viscosity should be 10w 40. But the only 10w 40 I can find is semi-synthetic. Any advice gratefully received.

  4. Oil Change (Synth) What I did.

    Laguna 1.9, 77000 miles. Just about 10,000 miles ago I changed the oil but at the same time I fitted a new turbo unit, new water pump, new belt just about everything as advised. Never mist a beat since and I planted a little chip in it too. Pulling hard at 2000 in second...nobody...
  5. Cheap 5w-40 Fully Synth' Oil.

    Cars & motoring
    £18.00 for 5L - @ your local ASDA. = £3.60 per litre. API CF rating. :d Add in the £6 for a new (Bosch) oil filter from Europarts and that's a pretty cheap DIY oil change for anyone running a DCi. I also bought 5L of 5w-30 semi-synth' for SWMBO's Zetec. £14. = £2.80 per litre. 'cause she's...

  7. Voice synth.... Does it synth or is it pre-recorded?

    Electronics
    Just wondering really... Is the voice synth really a synth or does it just play pre-recorded messages which are stored somewhere? What I want to know is, from a programmers point of view, could certain messages be customised and still be played in the same voice, or would you have to find an...

  11. How to - Retro-fit voice synth

    Miscellaneous
    Bit of a repost but I think more suited to this section. Retrofitting the voice synth to a post 52 plate vehicle can be done. All that is needed is a little soldering skills and a lot of patience. To begin with you will need to locate a voice computer, switch and associated connectors and...
