Oi! Stop trying to scare Otterchops. She may already be traumatised from the experiences gained through having bodgers work on her! At least Papa is trying to sort her out properly, asking advise when he does not know the answer, and for confirmation that what he is considering will work.

This means a reset......

Don't worry, Otterchops. So long as Papa follows the procedure correctly all will be well. Think of it as an automotive massage. You may well be pleasantly surprised by the results.

Speaking of massages, I know of somebody who is at university studying physiotherapy (and massage can be an important part of this). When she was back in Reading word got around the friends and family, and she spent some time helping out. After a couple of sessions one of her elderly relatives said that they had had their first decent night sleep in years, as all their muscles were no longer cramped and painful (and they took her advise to visit their GP).

I find good, strenuous exercise does the same thing James ;)

I did a BSI reset on Robyn's 207 a few months ago and that certainly resolved all her little quirks and funnies :D

Papa has a question.

If he resets my BSI, will this erase my keys?

Hello, friends!

He did try the BSI reset and so far so good. I,do feel better but then that may be because Papa has just topped up my oil and coolant. Always nice to see Papa's smiling face whenever he listens to my powerful engine,

Hello, friends!

I shall never understand Papa.

I mean, he has me! I am stylish and comfortable with loads of space and proper air conditioning. So why has he just spent an evening squeezing in and out of tiny single seater cockpits at Cosford? No space, hard seats, no aircon, struggles to get in, struggles to get out! Why??????

At least I had some nice cars to chat to.

It's all done so he appreciates you properly Otter ;)

I have a C1 so that I can properly appreciate my Activa when I drive it!
