  1. I started on (mostly off) a Lambretta LI150 moved onto a Tiger Cub, passed my test and got a Triumph Thunderbird.

    Got into the Jap stuff when I moved to Australia and went through the entire Suzuki 2 strokes and ended up on a Kettle (GT750 Water cooled)

    Came back to the UK and bought a Honda VF750 Custom then upped to a VF1100 Custom.

    Despatched for 3 years on an old boxer RT100 then became a riding instuctor on various bikes (VFR750 GS750 amonst them).

    Eventually cou7ld afford a Pan Euro 1100 and ended up on a Pan Euro 1300.

    All in all a great life with lots of fun along the way.

    Phil, I have never heard (until today) of someone expecting the warranty to be extended because they have not used the product purchased...surely that's not the vendors problem?

    Bugger, I've just received an early birthday present, it's a month early though and I was told not to open it till the day - wonder if I can get a warranty extension ?

  3. If the Mara X is the same wand as the Mara PL62

    Then I know this one fits :- Expobar Single Hole Steam Nozzle M8.5 + O'ring OEM Part No. 30370190

    I would imagine the rest of the range would also fit.

    thanks amazon uk had them around the low £70 but not now, i should have jumped but thought i would search this morning, oh well

    Amazons new price seems to be in line with other retailers

    I think the £67 price stood when they had a load more in stock (a need to shed stock)

    I was lucky as I had a bit of spendo and needed some retail therapy.

    I have noticed that on alot of photos the steamer and boiler water knobs do not match, as mine do not.

    Swap the baskets around, it should go back to what it was before.

    The fact here is that the basket changed. The portafilter change in this context is totally irrelevant.

    ^^^ This.

    this is probably more a general question than Marax specific but, for those who are using a bottomless PF, do you change your grind size as there's less resistance and therefore the shot time is reduced? 

    I don't, surely the resistance is the basket, not the portafilter itself.

    How long have you had the Mara for? I'm looking to maybe get one but I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. 

    I bought it last summer from BB paired it with the Specialita and have not looked back since.

    I started with bottled water but got caught up in the Osmio feeding frenzy.

    All in all I am very happy with all of my bits of kit, the wood just finishes it off.

    I would obviously like the Mara X but it's the same with most things, once you buy something it's updated within days (are you listening Samsung).

  8. Not Mara X but the PL62 deluxe variant :-

    I'm with Dave on this subject

    I switch mine on in the morning and it stays on till evening

    Cannot see the point in not doing that.
