Drove Pembrokeshire to London yesterday just happily cruising along
I use the recommended pressures on mine, the sometimes look a little low but it's happy cruising along.

Cruised comfortably from Gower to Str8Six on Friday... smile

I'm usually hovering over 23-24 psi front to rear and the increase (2/10 bar) made the difference at higher speeds on country roads.

To be honest though, making WhatsApp video calls, with your phone mounted on the dash, while ROARING through beautiful French countryside, on perfect tarmac in a car that's in good fettle is a truly wonderful trexperience.
I can imagine!!

I was using mine.

The run was very short, stop in the middle, so with no time to grab 2nd, make it backfire etc, I decided to go for smoke

Impressed with you chaps who tour in your Cerbs, I find mine a bit too hot and smelly. I did remove the air con though.

Dropping the windows both sides gets a great airflow through so long as you're moving. Worse was last weekend in all the London traffic, although the car never went over 100. We drove around the Reims region back in 2019 during a heat wave, which was a little warm if you dropped below 40

Worse car we ever had for heat was one of the early Renault Espace's with no aircon. Driving that fibreglass greenhouse brick through France when hot was a chore, but I did love that car.

My windows are always all the way down when I drive, even in the winter. My heater ecu is in my dining room waiting to be fixed hehe

I just smell of car when I have driven it for more than 30 minutes, mix of things I guess. Comfort wise it's fine, a brilliant smooth car to cruise in.

Hi Dunc,

We meet again.

I am also attempting to remove the Air Con and have. as usual, several thoughts that have cropped up

Could you tell me, how did you remove that AirCon component from behind the driver's wheelwell ?
Did you go in through the panel in the footwell ?
AND
What did you do with the piping around the Fuel Cooler ?

I was incredibly lazy Paul, I just removed the compressor and cable tied the pipes to the chassis redface

Doing it properly is on my massive todo list, at a later date smile

Why take it out? If it isn't working, the clutch wont be engaged so won't be using power. Weight must be minimal

Ugly barnacle on front of engine, so when I put my engine back in, I just didn't bother putting it back on.

If I change how I use the car, I can put it back on easily enough smile

It's about 17kg, so not insignificant.

No, that is a quite a substantial weight saving, zero cost...compare that to the cost per bhp of tuning to get the same power to weight, same braking etc. If you are on a weight saving mission with a light car to start with 17kg is a good result...especially if it is broken in the first place.
