    Default Speed Bump

    I was a bit keen going over a speed bump at work and heard a scrape the other side of it. I'm hoping it was just the rubber trim at the bottom of the bumper..............

    It sounds like it Tam, my rubber trim on my car is in a hell of a mess due to scraping things recently. Have a look at it in the daylight, you can usually see where they have been scraping.

    As long as i don't find any puddles underneath it then it's fine!!

    Whats the best way to reduce the smoke coming from the exhaust? I've pressed hard on the accelerator a few times and seen a sh*t load of smoke from the exhaust

    Buy a petrol

    Mine smokes really badly sometimes. It all depends on where I get the fuel from
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    bit of a guess here but that's different from the pollen filter isn't it?

    I changed the pollen filter last week.

    Yes its different, its the filter to clean the air for the engine. Mine tends to smoke but only on hard acceleration
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
