Re: Condensation on windscreen

Blimey, I don’t do any of the above. Never heard such tripe as a special calcite for the exhaust, it goes straight down the back like most cars and opening doors or covering the car?

Re: Engine violently shaking

Sounds like a misfire for some reason. Could be brought on by damp weather and while it isn’t right, I wouldn’t worry about it.

Me too.

It’s becoming a lawless shit hole and the offenders know it. They just do what they want in a lot of cases, knowing nothing will be done. It doesn’t need a few cops, it needs hundreds, if not thousands.
