Hi as far as i have understood the thing for The Gran Premio you have to register and send 2 or 3 photos of your car,.then wait for then to contact you back,and then go further with the payement. my italian is not good.
I think i should start a how long does it take coop paranoia to set in thread? Collected car yesterday morning, looks brilliant good record, belts changed 8k ago= 8yrs ago, why does it look so good? = respray, Aha, that's a good thing? right? but what does it cover up? Magnitude of ills? No because it was worth it? Begining to sound like Gollum in Lord of The Rings!
About now is just about the right time for the paranoia to set in. Have you checked your oil level today? :-)
Given MrsC is an experienced photographer, who has owned some pretty high end DSLR kit from both Canon and Nikon, I'm happy to take her word that mirrorless is the way she wants to go. My ignorance means I can't give a full explanation, but I believe weight and connectivity are factors.
For the back rests you'll need to pull down the interior boot trim and undo the 2 small nuts holding the driver's side. It's also possible to remove the two sections without removing the rear quarter panel cards/trims by undoing the centrally mounted bracket - with this done the seat retaining pins just pull out of their sockets.
A common fault is that a small carriage on one of the rails doesn't lock in position, It happened on my 16vt but didn't look into a complete remedy - however, fully pushing the seat back or forward (can't remember!) usually re-engages the carriage.
Hello, the same thing happened to me with the front ones, I discovered that it was a defect of the cable about 25 cm that starts from the lamps, I remember that there were also other plugs in that cable maybe the fog lights.
Glad to have been of any help. Btw, if you don't feel like messing with the electric installation, you can try removing the head unit when the car is turned off as an interim solution. In my case, with the HU removed, the radio draws only a small current for the memory.
Well, you can't keep a compulsive car buyer down...
The latest addition to the stable is an eye-wateringly bright orange 2008 Grande Punto Sporting with the 8v 1.9 Multijet engine. We bought it to replace the 1.3 Multijet Panda, as it is more in keeping with the new business in terms of colour (yikes!) and gains to be had from an economy remap.
Anyway, in true form, I managed to find an example with no history and only one working (non remote) key.
We were given a remote fob, but to our complete lack of surprise, it failed to spring back to life when we changed the battery (despite the assurances of the seller). When trying to start the car, the fob key turns, but brings up the key/padlock warning light, so it's literally a non-starter.
After a fruitless attempt to get Timpson's to supply and pair a new key (though they were very helpful and professional - well worth a try), I'm now a bit at a loss as to where to go next. I'm fully expecting to have my pants pulled down by Fiat, but would rather see if the Forum brains trust knows another way to get a new 3-button flip remote key. I know I'm likely to be looking at £150+, but I just can't find anyone who seems capable of doing the job!
after being with FJ for 9 years, their renewal quote came back over £70 more than last year despite nothing changing either with my vehicle or personal circumstances.
Gave Hagerty a phone and after a very relaxed 15 minute talk with Phil, their quote surprisingly came back at £51 cheaper than my FJ renewal I have all the benefits of my existing cover + more. I've just spent another £900 on the Coupe, so I have increased my agreed value by another 1K - no photos or valuation required (if you want the agreed value under 10K)
I suppose, like any Insurers - the real test will be when you need to make a claim!
I think their reputation is growing with the Coupe - as soon as I said the make & model I got an 'Ah yes' and the chat became very informal.
They happen so suit my requirements perfectly - although many won't - you have to be over 30, must be Garaged at home address, 3000 miles max per year & you can't have it as daily driver, must have another car on a standard policy.
I've barely used the Coupe, or been on here last 3 years & was even considering selling it & getting a Trike but I decided against & I'm spending on it again to get it looking fab again. I've also renewed my membership
