Never say never Annie but you would likely make a hell of a mess of the interior I suspect, best to remove it and be able to limit how much of a mess you make. I doubt trying to mask it off in situ would be an easy task either.

Aye, rightly or wrongly this sort of offence really doesn't deem a custodial sentence in my view. Far severe crimes are treated more lenient. The motorist is treated like a cash cow in every turn, & nobody can change my way of thinking.

When I last upgraded our home CCTV I went for 8x Reolink Cameras, the price is good, the Resolution is 5MP (2560x1920), they also can record audio and support POE. I also have a couple of their PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras which also work well.
The iOS App is a breeze to setup and I use a QNAP TS453 NAS drive to store the footage/audio. Amazon link to cameras for POE switches, we have a complete Unifi setup (USG Pro, Various switches and Wifi Access Points) but I have used these before and they will do the job. Amazon link to Switches
Make sure to use external Ethernet cable (Cat5 will suffice as they are only transmitting approx 10Mbps).
The cameras get frequent firmware updates (So hopefully security is good).

Reolink also make a recorder with 8xinputs and a 2TB drive. Amazon Link to recorder

If you plan the routing of the cables you can run them with minimal issues.
Personally I wouldn't use Wifi Cameras, as they tended to drop out quite a lot when I tested them, every with us having 4xWifi access points. Your mileage may vary.

Twin-V 1022cc air cooled engine - accounts for the motorbike sound - along with a very simple exhaust.

Check the oil - at least twice....

If the oil is too low, the hydraulic tappets struggle to fill and the engine will sound clattery

Ok,just checked the sensor and it seems fine, I cleaned it even thou it wasnt really dirty. After i put everything back car was stalling after reving it but it cleaned itself after a bit. Car started up fine and i drow it for a while but then suddenly it lost the throttle again. Since diagnostics report "phase sensor" failure and it appears fine, my next guess is the distributor cap which is a bit loose since small plastic part that holds it tight is broken. So do you guys know the part number for it,i think it is the same as on many other fiat cars

Hi Jim - wonder if there’s a happy compromise as I have a big F-off compressor that can supply plenty of air if that’s what you need to avoid cans?

Alternatively I’m at Silverstone on 4th May and could drop it with you that evening if you’re around.

Broomy on back of a transporter heading south on A37 between Yeovil and Dorchester, when i saw it it was a matter of yards from where mine met a similar fate a few weeks ago.

The 170bhp MultiAir is the one to have. I've had both this model and currently the 240bhp Veloce. The MultiAir engine and manual box was a lovely combination, really nicely balanced car. The TCT box (in the Veloce) is only usable in Dynamic mode - in Normal it changes into 6th all the time. In Dynamic it's ok, but it makes the steering too heavy. And it torque steers - the power is really too much for the chassis. But the 170bhp manual just feels fine in Normal mode, best Alfa I've had over a lifetime of them, I'd have one again.

I'd like to add that a Coop advert benefits immensely from having some really nice, carefully selected photographs of the car, as opposed to ones that look like they've just been quickly taken and thrown together.

After all, nice photos give the impression of someone who has taken an interest in the car during their time with it.

Of course something like a [enter make and model of car that is ridiculously popular and has a massive fan base] advert could have a single, rubbish, low resolution photo of the car next to an overflowing wheelie bin and it'll still probably get loads of interest but the Coop is a different story.

I agree Graham that I'd expect a CV joint to be noisier when turning but this is definitely in a straight line. It's a very definite sharp clicking noise although not really heavy, ie a click not a bang, if that makes sense?

Also it is quite definitely louder if you accelerate harder.

I checked the engine mounts when the steering issue first arose, with a bar to rock the engine, and couldn't see anything amiss.
