    Wait what do you mean English, the English dont have a car brand anymore since MGRover and that became foreign.
    EDIT: I lie Vauxhall is British but thats about it, Astra is a nice car for day to day but id get a Ford Focus first.

    Yes I know that; but my point is; Ford, MG and Vauxhall parts are much cheaper and easier to get hold of than any others. Down here anyway.

    lol I don't watch that sh*t! I'm more of a QI man :pimp:

    I'm guessing it's something to do with scousers and their "five-finger discount?"

    Gutted!
    i wrote out a long post about motors then scouse jokes and the computer messed up!!

    Lotus:it's citreon that shares the parts bin with pug not renault.
    kuro:throw £120 at the car to do the brakes and lambda then jog it on(or be sneaky and turn the ignition one click and hold the button for a minute till the dash flashes,error is reset),get a focus or fester and enjoy winning.Those hyundai i30 etc are well cheap brand new and you are covered by 3 years warranty,my mate bought one with this simple logic:
    anything goes wrong,hyundia cover it,you pay the same for higher marque used cars and get no warranty...
    older golfs were ok,but the newer ones ('97 on)came with electronic power steering and it's absolute shite! it feels like a deathtrap,theres no feedback at all,no progression and an odd setup to the pedals,throttle being lower than brakes/clutch.
    ofcourse the a3 is the same,i've owned both and would only recommend them to women...

    sorry that was the 106/306 reset technique,the 206 is:turn one click on ignition,hold down foot brake then hold the mileage reset button until you see a countdown to zero.

    Hey scam!
    with the 306 there is a button down by the ignition barrel that is supposed to disable the internal alarm if you lock your dog in there,just hold that while having the ignition on click on,be patient it can takes a couple of minutes.
    306's rock! they are proper student fare these days so its an easy 5-700 in no time at all.

    ok think i isolated it,in safe mode with networking it appears ok,seems to be a video error as graphics drivers arent loaded then..
    how odd that it has only just started messing up around a month since installing the driver...

    It was the youngest's biffersday on saturday,little bundle of joy and stink :roll:

    theres hundreds of pics on there and i dont have a spare HD just now,but driver wiper and safe boot seem to have fixed it so far.

    Got to love the kids when there so small,winning hearts all the way.
    now my eldest...hmmm...

    Let me know if your dad has chubbles with the reset though.

    I come across something odd t'other day,so i was given a p4 775 HT and i tried your chip in there,seems some are 64 bit and some aren't?

    This only resets how many miles i've driven,which doesn't really require holding down the brake.
    You can just push the mileage reset button and it turn the mileage driven to 0. Doesn't get rid of the engine warning light lol.
    I would probably end up keeping the car since my parents won't change it until it dies.
    I hope it dies over 100k mileage driven.

    Kuro:i'm not lying,just google "reset service 206",but if you have a dodgy connection or water in the connectors,its not going to disappear without some intervention.
    I'm pretty sure you will easy get 100k out of your car though,i got 180 out of a petrol 306 till the cambelt went,so i sold it to the scrappers for more than i paid for the car :laugh:

    lovely pic arciks!

    MM's right, you're just doing it wrong :p

    Nicely done!

    Yea some aren't x64, but I dunno. I usually just google the 5 digit code with wiki

    "SL6WG wiki" and it comes up with the wiki page with a table of all the models, instruction sets, architectures etc.

    Here's a page I used to have bookmarked.
