Just a thought, but if your IPK
has a fault that illuminates the CC light, does anyone know if the internals of an IPK
can be interchanged? By that I mean just the simple things like the lights?
If so I will donate my redundant IPK
to you, it only had 3138 miles on the clock when replaced so it should be fault free.
Mike, thanks so much for the kind offer. I'm seeing Duncan and Paul on the 20th of May to see what can be done with a T4
and all their experience?
If the wretched thing still stays on I'd like to take you up on the offer.
Meanwhile to make things easier for night-driving, whilst the 'Cruise' shines away, I collected the Smart, I referred to earlier from EC2 this afternoon and took it in for a service and MOT, while I waited. It's 4 years old and has only covered 8,000 miles from new. My dad used it when he and my mother lived at the Barbican. He had 2 of them, (there's a Direct Smart Dealer near Canary Wharf I think). This was his last one and had PAS, heated leather memory seats etc (the Ghia version) he called it!
It hasn't moved a wheel in 16 months, (garaged) so I put the battery on charge, for 24 hours and returned today. It fired up second time of asking and ran back here faultlessly.
No road tax, No congestion charges, nearly 70mpg and I parked it end on, across the back of the 75 tonight in my parking space! It really made me laugh today as well, they truly are a fun car.
I was going to sell it, but think I'll use it as a shuttle, as 80% of my trips are very short (under 10 miles return) and particularly in the winter it'll be very economic on fuel, when the 75 even with the new Thermo fitted still takes 7-8 miles to warm up. The rust can't strike much (Fibreglass panels) and a colour change can be effected in under an hour - there's a Nano meet challenge!
No big deal with the blasted Insurance hucksters either - Ã‚Â£168 fully comp and even they can't load it that much (he said hopefully).
