Re: Man in the middle attack

That's not the point.

You store your key at home in the pouch and then no one can stand at your front door relaying the car signal amplified by his mate's car receiver and picking up your key-fob's unlock codes.

Re: New CX-30 forum or not?

A multi-homed server running on the same computer instance (and IP address) solves the money problem in setting up two distinct sites. Except of course for buying Domain Registration. So the question is 'will revenue from advertising on the cx-30 site cover the ongoing registrations fees?'

Re: Passenger wing mirror not fully closing

I see some here saying that silicone as a lubricant is acceptable on plastics. Before this becomes this forum's 'Law' let me say - for some, it may be. This guide suggests otherwise, and I quote from it; "Incompatible plastic-lubricant combinations often cause operating problems such as stress crack...

Re: Passenger wing mirror not fully closing

I had nylon sliders in my windows which I had used silicone spray on, and one simply came apart, locking the window wide open. I know the silicone was intended for the connectors but if an...

Wanna get flucked? Go to Adrian Flux!

With a slightly more serious tone; the days of the broker are really over. Now everything is online we can each do what a broker does and hunt around for the cheapest deal with the cover we need. A broker, by definition is a re-seller and has to pile their fee on top of the cost of the insurance. A ...

Re: 1.5 skyactiv diesel Remap and/or DPF delete anyone?

I have a asked a number of questions looking for helpful advice but no that’s not what I get in response. Yep; that about sums this place up. Sorry i can't help; I drive a petrol engined AWD CX3 , partly chosen to avoid the DPF brouhaha. I cant see why it shouldn't regenerate on long run though. I ...
