Thanks DD, I know, the amount of coinage I find is crazy. I don’t mind finding them though haha

Yes cools I’ve got a load of stuff now haha, love finding it all. I couldn’t resist getting the ladybird in on the action as she was right next to the hole haha. The four pence is Maundy money. They done alsorts. Here’s a picture of some other silver coins I have, very small and on a 10p for scale!

Its worth a read

Yes, doing exactly what this Government wants, blaming it all on the Council. The Council is forced to produce those documents and know it doesn't look good for them, no doubt in retaliation they have played devils advocate a bit to try and rescue their reputation.

I haven't checked but has the Council said it needs to allocate all that Greenbelt land or is it a list of potential areas for inclusion in the allocation list?

The idea that building expensive luxury houses in greenbelt land gets higher rates is totally flawed, the Council makes more "profit" from high density areas than more sparsely populated areas.

Whatever, the source of the problem is the ONS data that species our projected housing growth, here are some actual figures of housing for Wirral (from ONS), unfortunately its rounded to nearest thousand. Finding tables of historical number homes for Wirral is proving elusive.

2009 107,000
2010 107,000
2011 105,000
2012 105,000
2013 103,000
2014 103,000
2015 101,000
2016 102,000
2017 102,000

But this doesn't necessarily correlate with number of households, I found a figure 0f 154,411 for 2016 for number of households.

Hi Gibbo.....Murphys Law states that the strap over the battery has to hide the date!! If any help, the car was new in July 14 so battery can't be more than 4 years old. It's a big old boy as the car is a 320D with stop/start (that I have programmed out never to darken my door again!!)

The car will start perfectly and then next time it sounds like the battery is flat and it only just turns over but always starts. Sometimes it does it a few times and then not for ten or more's done this since I bought it 18 months ago and has never failed to actually start but sounds dreadful sometimes. A few people passing have said 'only just eh!!'

If you imagine you've left your lights on for a few hours..that's what it sounds like.......sometimes happens straight after a 200 mile run!

I suspected the battery strap as this is a common problem with the F30 apparently but it was fine when Dilly looked at it yesterday....suspects now are lazy starter or possibly the battery...charging circuit seems fine.

The only positives for Birkenhead is a nicer view across the river!

Colourtone in Bromborough .... I took a small part from my 1964 Honda bike and they matched it with one of 1000's of colour chips - I think it was £13 for the aerosol and it matched perfectly.

Thanks cools. Yes still on the permission. Waiting for him to cultivate the cropped fields as it’s to hard to detect in the stubble at the moment. So having to stick to the grass fields

We buy tyres if there still legal... we’ll remove from rim so you still have alloys/ steels to weigh in. Price depending on size and tread

Assuming it’s a 1.2 turbo model...
First things first, it needs to go on a decent quality diagnostic machine. Renaults and cheap code readers don’t work, once code has been verified you need to look at live data.

With the engine off does the manifold pressure and mass air flow values appear right, where is the egr position?

If they all look ok I’d check intake pipes, boost hoses and intercooler for any splits... sometimes they can be very hard to spot... but keep an eye out for any oil deposits on the hoses and pay careful attention.

Another possibility is the vacuum line going to the turbo actuator or the actuator itself. (Even could be down to the vanes in the turbo sticking.... check actuator rod moves freely by hand)
