I was thinking of doing a photo-strip of the ML5 but as they're so reliable it's likely a waste of time. If anyone wants one though, shout...
Today, as it was such a gorgeous day, we gave Robyn's little 207 a badly needed service. The oil had been in there for nearly 20,000 miles and it was in an awful state. The plugs were so worn the gaps could have accommodated a double-decker bus but apart from that it was not too bad. These 20,000 mile services seem far too distant to me.
Robyn had a few instances of the engine cutting out on approach to roundabouts and so on. We had the Lexia (Pug Planet) onto it and re-initialised the engine ECU to recalibrate the auto-adaptives which mainly sets up the correct idle and overrun fuel cut-off. I'm hoping that fixed it as Robyn finds it a little scary at times and tomorrow she's off to Oxford for a University interview at Brooks. She's looking to do a nursing degree.
I've decided, after yet another drive of it yesterday, to keep the XM..
That sounds like a productive day Jim. Those 20K service intervals don't sit well with me, no doubt by then there is more fuel than oil in the sump. A recipe for disaster with a 1.4/1.6HDi.
Excellent, I thought you might find it difficult to let the XM go to a new home.
I'm so tempted by an XM and have been hankering after one since we did the XM/Xantia swap but really since our XM estate went. I keep seeing Matthews gorgeous TCT adverts too
That red SEi would suit me perfectly
