***Motors Chat Thread*** Round 1

This is a new thread which has been opened in total agreement by the motor mods.This is a completely new thread and is to be seen in a different light than how the old thread was.

1.This thread is for motoring topics which you feel are not worthy of starting a new thread for, banter from a meet or general motoring related chit chat.

2.No lonely hearts (This is not a personal dig at anyone, it's how we feel is the best way to describe what we want to avoid. )

3.Keep it clean.

4.The Motors charter applies.

this thread has now been replaced

That Maserati Club meet stopped in Kilkenny over the weekend, there was some savage metal on display including a Gran Turismo S with all the carbon trim. I'll stick up some pics in the HWIST thread later

Need to get a new battery for the feckin Polo. The thing is completely dead, not holding a charge at all any more. It barely lasts a day after jumping.

Anyone know how to fix a head units cd player, the head unit in my ST made a few strange noise's over the weekend and decided to stop reading CD's then, everything else works fine, do those CD cleaners actually do anything or are they a bit of a gimmick?

You'd get a used one for 20 quid or a new cheap one for 40, put a new battery in it. Silly to sell a car with a crap battery.

Anybody on here have a 2007 3 Series Coupe? (320i or 320d) I have always wondered what the handling is like on these chassis? Sluggish or tight?

The CD cleaners just have a brush on them that cleans the laser. Won't do much for anything that's broken inside. You could take the HU out and see if you can open it up. CD's players aren't overly complex inside so if somethings broken, you'll see straight away.
