Anyway despite what I do it is still asking for the car telephone number. I might might put a fresh copy of XP on a spare laptop and try again.

And that's what neatly summarises what I hate about all things IT... So stressful. I can do without all the aggro it brings so I do...

Hope a fresh install fixes it Dave...

Else, come and see me and I'll hang my trusty ELIT on it for you ;)

I also have some CD's labeled "PP2000" and "Lexia". Can these be installed on their own?

Just a small update on the tracking issue. A couple of times today when I parked, I held the wheel at the straight ahead position and shuffled the car back and forth a few times to settle the steering. I then looked along the edge of the osf wheel and could just see the edge of the rear wheel, repeated on ns and I could see quite a bit of tread on the rear tyre maybe 25-35mm. Ok not very scientific I know but the car pulls slightly left and yet two garages have told me the steering is spot on to .5mm. Either they are telling porkies or their measuring equipment is not very accurate. To just simply look along the edge of the tyre and see a large discrepancy tells me something is drastically amiss. We are away for a week tomorrow but when we get back I am going to adjust the nsf wheel the same as the os as near as I can and see what results I get. If it gets rid of the pull it can stay like that.

That's interesting Dave. Either that or the operator of the equipment was not completely au-fait in its use and operation.

Maybe go somewhere else and show them the evidence you have found before they start so they know that a) there is an issue and b) you know what you are talking about...

Finding someone who is good at tracking can be a battle.
In North Wales I all but gave up, no one on the high street can track a car even with their sophisticated lasers.
When I did find a place that got it right they didn't nip up the locknut and it didn't stay right for very long.
I was lucky to make friends with a HGV mechanic who with old fashioned Vernier gauges could do it right every time.

Down here I'm very lucky to have found somewhere that have managed to do it right first time.
I took them a work van first before I let them loose on my car and they've done a good job twice.
I will be making a garage recommendation for them soon, when I remember their name.

I think its been tracked slightly off centre hence the pull.
