    Message to the BBC re. Gaza etc...

    I think people are starting to see through these crocodile tears now. I hope the world wakes up. Isn't it ironic how the same people who were kept in concentration camps and executed on a mass scale. Are the same people keeping millions imprisoned and committing the killing of innocent people because they are Palestinian. You would of thought out of all the people in the world they would feel compassion for what's happening in gaza yet it's those same people who suffered at the hands of a mad man committing those exact same crimes.

    So I ordered a pair of the SJ4000 cameras and I must say that they are superb quality and might aswell be identical to the Go Pro Hero 3 - at about a quater of the price! What do you get in the box? Bloody loads! Camera, cables, weather proof case back, fully water proof case, various mounting options etc etc. Advantages over the GoPro - You get a little screen to preview on so you can see where the camera is pointing - also great for immediate playback too! You can remove the battery to replace it quickly with a fully charged one - Gopro units are "sealed for life" so the SJ4000 is superior in that way as the batteries are cheap enough So I threw togehter a couple of videos - First one is with the mount on the lower valance on the M5 bumper - adhered in place using the provided 3M double sided sticky pad and using the "helmet" mount as the curve is perfect for the curve of the valance under the number plate! First video - A bit boring but it was to trial the case mod I had seen on the Go-pro to reduce wind noise, and I must say it works very well! You can hear the engine under nearly all driving conditions, but when the taps are opened you really hear it growl (joining the motorway and near the end climbing the long hill). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmLs85B8ApM Another video is this one - as I know there are a few railway buffs on here! I attached the camera to the bogie frame of a class 66 (66055 for those number crunchers out there!) loco at work and took a run to Milford West Sidings from Knottingley Depot - Starting in the Goole Goods and was pleasantly surprised at how well it coped with all the noise, vibration and other such nasties you get on the railway - Excuse the buzzing noise, this was due to the case vibrating on the sand pipe - My fault for positioning it too close:( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_Y6yi00hG4&list=UUI1y1snuEdAok7jjYj4dpKw VERY impressed with the cameras for the money - I'll be ordering a couple more too! Edited to add - Youtube compression ruins the quality of the video - They were both filmed in 1080p and when viewed on a 50" HD TV directly out of the camera, the quality os simply superb! Footnote - if you could click on any adverts that appear then I would be very greatful

    BMW E34 H5S

    When I purchased the car I noticed it was using a bit of water so it was sent of to Geoff steel racing in Lincoln for a check up he called me to say that the head was cracked.I asked Geoff if he could do the work and he said he could he also suggested a few mods for the engine to release a few more BHP which is always a good thing in my world so I asked Geoff to do a full engine rebuild and do the mods I got the car back 4 months later just in time for my first outing to the gaydon bmw festival and I noticed the difference in power straight away.Here's a picture of it at gaydon

    Dpf gut mot fail

    Unless Europe really begin to clamp down with their eco legislation, I very very much doubt the UK will ever be as stringent as Germany. In Germany they seem to actually care about safety on the road. In the UK they care more about revenue generation. I don't really see how central government will be able to cash in.

    Very lumpy idle and loss of power on 530d

    Welcome Mike, and lucky fix too. I had the same issue recently but it was an injector that had packed in. If you do want the codes read at all using inpa by all means give me a shout and we'll sort something out. Greig.

    Make me brake lines?

    Are you sure you are flaring the ends in the correct way. There are convex and concave ends.. I have done hundreds of brake pipes and never had a leak.. I can't think why they would if the correct flares where made..

    Introducing the Andrive 3! (AN39-3)

    As far as i understand, if its the same as the Andrive 2, nav equipped vehicles need a 5 metre fakra cable (andrive can supply) then that runs from the back to the front and to the back of the unit. Dan

    Glad you got it sorted Mike, even better at no cost. Take the advice and get the diagnostic cable anyway. If you keep the car it will repay you time and time again.

    Anyone got an X5 3.0d xdrive?

    ^^ had a little bonding session on the A1M this morning and unfortunately couldn't quite stop in time to avoid hitting a car that crashed in front of me. Entirely my fault unfortunately. The car has just been delivered to BMW for inspection, I'm hoping it won't be a write off as it's been a great car and deserves a nicer end than this! P.S. the guy in front of me, who crashed into the car in front of him, hopped out and apologised to all concerned as he went to brake and his foot got caught under the brake pedal! You've got to laugh!

    Welcome Mark I’m not too familiar with patrols but it sounds like coil pack or spark plugs maybe? Have you had a code read done?
