    ......in the C140 because the BAS/ASR and BAS lights have come on.

    Is she OK to carry on to Sussex and back this evening?.....probably another 180 miles.

    Thanks chaps

    Is the car still driving ok?????

    If yes, then drive it home, warning lights don't always mean the car is unsafe..

    I drove our A,class for months with said lights on......

    MrsB is now in Uckfied with her father.....slow journey once off the M23 apparently..... behind a ''train'' of fairground vehicles. All this, and within double quick time her father will have forgotten she has been.....hey ho.
    Never mind she should be back about 20.30hrs......in time to feed me !!!***???

    I wonder what Mrs Mic is making Mic to eat?

    Perhaps Mic could 'advise' her to do the ironing, whilst waiting for his dinner to cook? ;)

    Should be ok, just tell her to keep a safe distance from the car in front and go easy on the throtle on bends/roundabouts. Speak soon.

    No doubt you will be seeing the car soon. MrsB rarely drives above 85ish and always conservatively; has never been known to boot it out of r'bouts which could be why she returns a better mpg from her 10t CL than I get from a more modern fuel efficient ''super lightweight''. !!!***???

    Thanks for the message of comfort......I will report in when on MrsB's return and dinner is about to be put on the table......I am of course, having played five-a-side, three pints of London Pride to the good.

    Its not good......MrsB is just returned and seemingly it has been a long day, 2.75hrs. for the 110 miles journey home, repeat monologues with here dad is wearing, and the fish pie that I was going to get she cannot be arsed to wait for it to cook so it will be cheese biscuits and a bottle of red......hey ho.

    For the sake of completeness...... the car today had a new reluctor ring......I could not find the time to get to Star any sooner.

    Driving beautifully again.
