      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

I don't know if i like the fly eyes kit or not , it looks good from a distance but looks cheap up close, i don't know if i should get the fly eyes or the lamin-x.

Mines lamin x now although I did the fly eyes thing first.
Got to say the Lamin X does pass the up close test and looks oem+ IMO.
It would have been harder to do on the facelift lights though which is why I changed mine.
Fly eyes is much easier to apply generally speaking.
Lamin x is trickier to apply but worth the effort to get a better finish.

Gunsmoke on the rear, 8 x 12 inch piece. £9.99 it made the equivalent of 5 segments (pre facelift..)
Would probably be enough to part tint one pair of facelift lights on the clear segments I reckon.
But I recommend careful measurement first before ordering.

Yellow on the front fogs. 4 x 12 inch piece. £6.99
I'm sure I used a discount code. I'll search through some old emails and see what I can find.

Anybody had any grief off the MoT station or Plod after doing this? I release they are meant to be legal but that doesn't always stop the hassle.

Depending on which type you have, either clean or renew your
air filter. You may find that the one in the car is clogged or dirty
and that's why you are getting a bit of extra smoke.
I'll see you on the 13th mate ;)

Me 2. I've got to do it at home though as the Mrs is none too pleased that I'm
gallavanting off to a meet on the only whole evening of the week she's here...
I may be able to use the old Jedi mind trick and get her to come along but I'm not
sure the force is with me enough for that. I take it you're sacking the JKM RR thing
then Gareth?

Fraid so mate, caught between potentially having to quickly pop to work first thing and the need to purchase some new tyres, so I've given up my slot to one of the many peeps on the waiting list.

You're more than welcome to come over for cleaning Garry (I've got the PB black hole at the ready!), but I don't exactly live in a fortress and only have space for 2 fabias at a time on my drive...

Alternatively, we could road trip to Essex (if feeling brave enough! :p)
