  1. Sorry to hear that. The new forum software does have its foibles, I also struggle with it at times. The best way to add pictures is by uploading them to a photo hosting site and then posting the link in your post. HTH
  2. Care to elaborate? That's quite an accusation!
  3. This can of worms might get interesting... This is my view and not that of T5D5. One of the reasons this forum was started was to stop people being ripped off and to get the info out there regarding bad and dangerous mappers. You are new to this forum and have been given a fair playing field to view your opinion, however many folk have got burned with remaps. Many folk have had serious damaged to engines cause by bad maps. There are many folk popping up offering maps here, there and everywhere. The tried and trusted reputable mappers with good and reliable customer service will gain custom most of the time. The sort of questions that run through peoples minds will be... Are you in business? Are you paying tax on your earnings? What real time trials and proof of longevity do you have? Have you had to invest like the bigger companies? What if someone's engine goes bang, what guarantee do they get? Was is not John who put a death code into someone's map? Out of interest, have you heard from your good friend John recently?
  4. Nice write up, thank you for the info. Apologies for the thread hijack... Rich, do yourself a favour and get second bucket, a wash mitt and some Meguirs shampoo plus. Job, jobbed! Polished Bliss has all the gear, information and a customer service second to none.
  5. Use a photo uploading site like photobucket. Then all you have to do is post the link. I have to admit that is was years and years ago that it was common practice to use photobucket but the last time I used the site, it was just about unusable. Im sure there are better ones which are also free nowadays. HTH
  6. Congratulations Nick on doing something a lot of us would like to do but won't get round to doing it. Grass track was the most I ever did. All the best for the season and please keep the updates coming. 👍
  7. No problem, apology accepted. Thank you for the update and congratulations on the sale. At T5D5 we keep things as an archive for all to see.
  8. Well said sir!
  9. Sadly the technology thats in these cars will be about 20 years old now. Don't bother upgrading to the OEM phone with removable sim etc, its a PITA. A new modern head unit is probably the way forward or something like a Parrot kit.
  10. The official line from Volvo is above but I know others use different oil, especially those tracking their cars. Often its the frequency that the oil is changed that is key. HTH
  11. If in doubt, dont drive it! Tow it to a garage/home if its only 6 miles. if you dont know what you are doing pay a garage to do it.
  12. Stick price up please Don. It gives us an idea what kind of cash you are talking about and It will help those who might be serious about buying.
  13. I did a 25mm drop on my '51 red V70D5. It was good but ruined it for load lugging and carrying 4 passengers. It entirely depends on what you want from the car. Have a read of the other similar topics currently on the go. HTH
