Re: To start or not to start?

What about tyres please. Increase the pressure/deflate a few psi. Also if you dont start up you dont move the car and the weight of the car will be sitting on the same part of the tyre.

What I would appreciate is a picture of a black leather wheel to see whether there is much contrast between the 'dinner plate' airbag cover which is shiny.

Hi, When you say just plugs in does that mean exactly what I think it does in that I unplug the Business CD and the new unit fits exactly into the 'wiring socket' that the Business CD unit did. Also what about the space left by the old unit. The new unit just fits in? Thanks
