    At least you managed to keep all of your wheels in one piece!

    ****** WVM cause all sorts of issues

    Hopefully no damage, sounds like a lucky escape

    Cheers Mr DTM

    And Steve as well please - my screen earlier this week did a bit of a CID style failure, but fixed itself by next journey, so looking like I'll need a spare soon , unless you know if that's repairable (not stripped one to that level, but imagine not)


    This X351 eats infotainment bits, I might try to scour egay and scrappies for working spares to just keep on the shelf!

    Looks OK on paintwork and wheel liner.

    Underpants were checked as well, no damage, surprisingly, given speeds involved.

    Phew. I'm not sure that you want to be cleaning that off of the aniline leather!

    Not sure the shinanigans with the pebbles along the central reservation have not done some damage, following a drive to the land of the webbed feet (Ipswich) it feels intermittently a bit unstable.

    Time to get it in the air and check for knackered bushes and TREs. I've already poly'd the large front forward lower wishbone ones, so I know its not them !

    Get her checked asap and let us know, hopefully nothing too serious

    Won't have time for a few weeks .

    However, does look like I've got a failed tyre as well, grrr.

    Looks like I'll have to use the Zafira for a couple of weeks.

    The front tyres are 5.5mm, so over halfway through their life.

    So, do I spend £200 on one, and replace both fronts when the NSF gets to end of its life. Or £400 and by a pair now.


    Hmmm, decisions, decisions...
