After seeing Kalipope’s photo just now it reminded me of a question someone posted on Quora last week. Why are Pizzas so expensive when the ingredients are so cheap? There were the expected answers overhead costs heating lighting etc. But one caught my eye and has stuck in my head.
A guy had worked for a firm for 30 years the company gave him some money and said goodbye.
Some years later the biggest machine in the firm was playing up, all the top mechanics could not repair it. Someone suggested old Jack. He came in, spent a day alone with the machine, he marked a small cross a part. Went to the bosses and said replace that part and the machine will run like new.
It did to. They asked for the bill.
$50,000 Why so much? $1 for the chalk $49,000 knowing we’re to put it.
They paid up. Jack was happy

Not everyone can make a nice Pizza or repair your Car

Too true, talking cars I had similar experience with my Mum's old Ford Escort Mk2, it was pulling badly under braking, checked brakes and all ok, so long shot my mechanic mentioned get the tracking checked, so took it to fancy digital tracking place they rigged it all up, but the car was so old it wasn't listed on their fancy computer system, but luckily the old trusty mechanic knew what setting should be off the top of his head, so corrected it and first drive down the road, like a new car no more pulling, what price experience!

Experience yes! I have changed my pollen filter 5 times now, always with a Mann quality one. Looks like same as the ones sold by the club shop. But living in DE getting service items are easier for me to buy here. 3weeks ago now l changed mine and I still have pain in my left ribs. Lying on the sill getting it in.
And I put the carpet over the rubber. Watched a Facebook video this morning from Syd or Sid he used a filter he said he bought from euro car parts. It had 3 cuts on either side so it could be bent to slide into place. And no frame around it. Boy the job was so much easier for him.
Never seen this type of filter before.

Oh dear it’s funny how how you get to thinking only the best for my car. Just found 4 with the cuts on either side, they would have slid into the slot. And l would not need pain creams.

Our 107 doesn't have aircon, but done my sister's 108 and to be fair it a fairly easy job, unlike our old Peugeot van motorcaravan, that was a pain, remove glovebox, unscrew panel torx screws, replace filter and then the air filter had screws to remove to get at it, the 107 and 108 no need for any tools to replace either filter! Maybe it something to do with the Peugeot van also being a design collaboration, but between the French and the Italians!
