    Default How long to flatten your battery??

    Whilst in Belgium we were sat waiting for an appointment. Left the kids in the car with the ignition on, DVD player on and travel assist whirring away

    Came out after 90 mins and the battery was as dead as a Dodo. Went to get the jump leads out and they're still in the shed at home-D'oh!

    In the end managed to get a jump and no problems since then!!!

    Moral of the story= MAKE THE KIDS READ A BOOK FROM NOW ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Was looking for a post about that! Have you got much more power/torque now Rich?? It sounds like just what you wanted! Does it rattle your ears like mine at low revs or is it "more subtle"?

    Thanks for your concern!

    See you soon

    it's a lot more subtle, at higher rev's it is a little deeper than before but i just love the whistle noise at gear change

    happy new year to you and your's mate
