No speeding, no using phone while driving . . . Smiling too much and looking too happy isn’t allowed . . . You are allowed to elbow your way through queues, in fact it is positively encouraged!

Have a great journey.

 

I really like your Rover and the engine's lovely. I've driven with that engine in Range Rovers and Defenders, it makes a lovely noise :)

 

I'd love to be able to come to the lever day but won't be back from France in time.


If I can't drink my bowl of coffee three times daily, then in my torment, I will shrivel up like a piece of roast goat.

No oil pressure apparently. Went out on M25 and won't come back for now.

 

Would be sad if it wouldn't be so funny... Rovers, alright folks bring on your other jokes!!

Long story:

 

M25 just before Heathrow, horribly bumpy concrete pavement. Me thinks, hopefully nothing gets damaged by these road conditions. Traffic jams and everybody ends up in a stop-and-go. Engine goes out. I crank and it almost comes back, then dies. Motorway is slightly uphil, so I get out and push the SD1 from 3rd lane to hard shoulder. What do think happened

 

a. three brave men jump out of their rides and help Hasi push

b. Hasi had to tell folk to forking give way so he could push the thing to right hand side by himself?

Arse. And yes, the road is less than pleasant out that way.

 

What's the plan?

wait for the AA or whoever is gonna get sent by our Austrian version of it. Then they'll check.

 

It's oily in front of the engine but can't locate where it's coming from...

Fingers crossed you'll be able to get back on the road. Previous offer stands -- I'm about 30 minutes from Heathrow, so happy to swing by if you find yourself stuck.

Oh no... not good... let’s hope it’s a simple fix...

 

Just stopped at Trowbridge to stretch my legs... probably there about 4-ish.
