I have now got a pair of dash cams (one for myself, the other as Mums' Christmas present). Very small (3" by 1.5"), very high resolution camera and screen (5megapixel camera, 1080p 1.5" screen), and a good write-up by techmoan.

Hi James,

They look similar to one of mine.......

The Peugeot has decided to play the depopulation fault game on the way home from work this morning, so will have a play with Peugeot Planet later after some sleep.......

That's a worrying fault Steve..

Does it go on a culling spree when that happens?

That was on the 406 Coupe James...

On the 407 the fog lights become machine guns and the exhaust a flame thrower.. That really screws up the emissions figures if it goes off at MOT time...

It wont be much steve if shes driving ok. My guess would be on the lines of slightly weak mixture when on gas and crusing or lamda signal possibly..

the 607 I did threw up weak mixture on gas if she idled for too long or if I cruised at a steady speed for a whilem.

You forgot the 'pop up' bullet shield from the boot spoiler and the oil slick from the spare wheel carrier.....

Bang on the nose Paul, it's the mixture, more on the front not bank, intermittent on the rear bank

Well I've just filled the Coupe up with petrol, I've covered 1956 miles and used 38 litres of petrol which equates to 233 mpg, which in't to bad for a 3.0 V6 :-**

Well, Jump in the Coupe this morning and as I set off there's one hell of a bang from the OSR, pull over and stop, can't see anything, so I set off again, driving along there's a "rattling" noise that sounds like something is broken but I couldn't see anything when I looked, so decide to take it down to my local chap, Jim throws it on the ramp and low and behold the Anti-Roll mount has pulled itself off the bolt..... :evil:

Image

splitting the metal on the mount where the bolt goes, so a trip to my local dealer tomorrow to order a replacement, why do I have the feeling they will have to order it and it won't be cheap :?:
