Didn't get anything done yesterday, mainly because I had a "couldn't be a**ed day. I'm going to have a play this morning though as the sun is out and shining brightly.

I found the gear selector switch that came off Paul's scrapped V6 so I'm half tempted to have a go at fitting that and see what happens......... nothing to lose........Right?

I might also disconnect the ECU and have another go at cleaning up the he connections, again working on the "nothing to lose" theory.....

But first things, first........cuppa tea :)

Nothing got done again today, as the "great debate" kicked into action, the topic, of course being which one of the cars to sell.

This is a real head and heart issue, my head is saying one thing and my heart another...

Decisions, decisions......

Which will be the easiest to sell and doesn't have the biggest lose against it? Maybe that should be the one for the chop?

Why not chop the polo out :P

Because that would mean the C6 going on a 6 mile run every day and that wouldn't be good

If it is the SWMBO who necessitates the 6 mile run I withdraw my suggestion (as we both don't need THAT aggro!).

Granted, but I don't want to incur the wrath of BOTH of you!

I'd let the C6 and polo go and get some small electric things for the run, even a Prius could do that mostly on electric and save some money on fuel :)

PRIUS :shock: wash your mouth out :!: :!:

SWMBO already has a new car ordered so that's not the issue.

Me too although my reason was I had an entirely computer-free day yesterday. Couldn't be a**ed to even turn them on bar to do early morning forum admin and a bit of ebay buying...

Nah, not one of those but add one and then you have something worth having...

I can honestly say they're brilliant :-D
