    Windscreen badly scratched

    As the car only cost 15Kthb it's unlikely that he has the type of insurance that would replace his screen for him. As JoeW said any reasonable car detailer could sort that ... wonder what the High end detailing shop guys talked about for the rest of the day ..................

    Cholesterol Check

    Dying early is okay ... sitting slumped in a wheel chair with a hosepipe stuffed up your nose is another matter though ....
  6. CIMB only take about 30 minutes to open a Speed Saver account ... a whopping 1.3% if you have more than 1M thb in and instant access ... I found the rant calming ... for me today was just a little stressful ... among other things I drove from BK to Nakhon Pathom and back ...not much change out of 5 hours .................

    Throw Away Your Western Manliness!

    Sorry ..I haven't read through all that shit above ... my wife always pays the bill when we eat out unless I use my credit card ....she always gets the change given so why not pay
  8. No GoodYear have kept the damaged tyre
  9. Well looking at the recording from her car cam seems to rule out pissed ... she was driving the same distance from the lane markings for some considerable distance. Deviated left just before the crash ... so either ill, distracted or car malfunction ...it would seem ...
  10. If the 'facility' is actually in the dam it's a little difficult to get a 'boat' into the Kwai Yai ...
  11. So the outcome ... as the local shop hadn't received a reply from GoodYear Mrs J phoned the company and spoke to the Tech. He asked for the ref. Number on the receipt that the shop gave me ... of course I had lost it ... he said ok I'll contact the shop. Later the shop phoned and said that GoodYear will allow me 3472thb against a new one. Just a small problem the set that the shop have are week 9. I need to phone around to see what others have ... MrsJ asked the Tech if he knew build dates but he said all tyres were at the werehouse so couldn't help. Wonder if week 9 build is a problem ... opinions
  12. Australia has a problem with too much Non Synchronus Generation so there a need to be selective...

    Noise, there has to be noise!

    When I was 'young' we fitted to our 'mini varients' ... at times had mini/cooper/cooper S ... think what we called a straight through exhaust ... was just a phase ... a little later changed to wanting a quite saloon ... probably same over here ...just takes them a few extra years ..
  14. At 3year service today noticed that the tread on one of my tyres was lifting. They are Goodyear Efficent Grip SUV (265/50/R20). Rated at 52psi and 975Kgs. They have only done just under 30K Kms and still have 5mm of tread left. They were built middle of 2015. Looking around I can only find ‘same??’ Made in China but rated at only 36psi 8990 each or 26970 for four ... a pay for three get four offer!! which are no good and made 07/18 or at B-Quick who said they only had that size rated at 600Kgs and 51psi, again no good. I am contemplating all four … expensive I know. I could buy just two as they are always swapped diagonal front to back. I can suggest that a pot hole caused the damage ... I don't recall though and it hasn't been used 'off road' Has anyone replaced their New Everest tyres in that size yet? What/where did you get them from please ... I have e-mailed Goodyear but won’t hold my breath I live Pakkret area. ......thanks Lucky Mrs J read the label
  15. Hey, Thanks for the reply. We are staying in Bodhi Serene hotel in Chiang Mai for 3 nights (it's very central) and then going to Pai for 2 nights (staying in Pai Island Resort) for a total chill out. Knowing what I know now I probably would have stayed at least 7 nights in the North instead of 5, to allow a bit more flexibility with travel. I had down the Baan Chang or Thai Elephant Conservation Centre and also Tiger Kingdom, all of which are meant to treat the animals very well Pai ... I've been once it's ok there ... I drove a 5-series BMW there ... if you are going by bus FYL ... in any case take some travel sick pills before you go ... and if you are not the driver ... a blindfold!!
