passed MOT today
whoop whoop, another one on the road..
The R4 is going to be travelling regularly between Barnstaple and Tiverton due to changes at work.
I did my first service on the R4 tonight. New air and oil filters, new oil and sump plug washer.
I found GSF sell the correct Mann W75/3 oil filters for £4.02 inc vat and I got the correct air filter from eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/110886800533?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
Hi Rich, glad to hear you got the MOT ok, and that the 4 is going to be pressed into service, it does em good to be used you know, nothing worse than a car just sitting in a garage for weeks on end.
So true Brian, I use the R4 once or twice a week , both locally or going to Ilfracombe. I went to Exeter last week, 2nd longest journey I have done since buying it! Drove superb! I'm having the underside resealed soon ready for the salty roads.
Hmm talking of longer trips, how about Thenay next year? Just a thought. Yes there's no reason not to use the car through the winter, the roads down here in the West Country are quieter at this time of the year, and there's nothing better than a drive in the country on a crisp winters day. Look out for the dreaded tractors though
I quite fancy going to Thenay...
Had the car under sealed for those salty winter roads...thanks to Bob @ Resto Haus.
Hi Rich, hope you make it to Thenay next year. Your car looks good, ready for all the winter might throw at it.
Thanks Brian, off to Hessisch Oldendorf this year, maybe next!
Interesting Tiverton run today
Hi Rich, we've been lucky so far this winter, just a light fall of snow early hours of Monday morning. It looks like you are having an interesting commute to Tiverton.
Just come across your thread and am feeling homesick! That's Insow beach, that is! With Appledore in the distance! I was born in Barnstaple, my Dad was born in Appledore, my Mum in Instow and I grew up in Bideford, where I learnt my motor trade (not Renaults, I'm ashamed to say, but VWs!) Your PERFECT picture of your lovely Renault sums up summers in Devon. A Hockings ice cream van would finish it off!
Pity I live in north London now!!
You got it Andrew! Do you get back to Devon? (Nothing wrong with VW's)
We've been lucky with the weather Brian, it's just inbetween Barnstaple and Tiverton that's had the snow.
Yes I think we've come off pretty lightly so far this winter weather wise, and I agree with you, nowt wrong with veedubs, old and new.
Yum, Hockings. My favourite :-)
Got a pair of tie rods....
R4's very practical!
R4 earnings its keep!
Resting in the sun...
Hi Rich, is that your rat-look Barndoor Splitty? Yum yum
Hi Brian, yes that's my bd, finally road legal!
