Last Saturday I went down to Snetterton. I took a few photos of the racing cars.
Last night (Monday) I bought a new car. It could be nothing to brag about but… it is a lovely Saab just for £620. This is I think only one advantage of the recession – cheap cars.
My Renault Laguna (God, never, ever French car any more!!!) died last Saturday. Clutch and gearbox just exploded 🙂 A year ago I had to change an engine…
I just hate this car. Tonight it will be taken to the scrapyard.
Anyway, my 12 year old Saab runs 5x better than 6 year old Renault. The quality of Saab is amazing 🙂

During my trip by car to Poland, when I was in France, under speed limit signs I noticed a lot of small plates with text: Rappel. Because I don’t know French language at all, I had no idea what it meant. I thought that maybe it was a special speed limit for lorries?
Rappel means reminder.
It means that you have formerly already been imposed this speed limit on the road you follow, that you’ve already had to respect it.
Samochodem z UK do Polski jechałem kilka razy. Dopiero ostatnio, wstyd się przyznać, sprawdziłem w sieci, co oznacza (bardzo często umieszczana pod znakami ograniczenia prędkości) mała tabliczka z napisem RAPPEL. Ponieważ przez Francję w kierunku Polski jedzie się bardzo krótko i w zasadzie tylko autostradami, pomyślałem, że te ograniczenia prędkości z podpisem “rappel” dotyczą jedynie ciężarówek, zwłaszcza, że i tak wszyscy jechali co najmniej o te 10 czy 20 km/h szybciej.
Prawda jest – jak zwykle – całkowicie inna 🙂 Mianowicie znak RAPPEL oznacza nic innego, jak “przypomnienie”. Widząc znak 90+RAPPEL oznacza, że ograniczenie prędkości do 90km/h na tej drodze zostało ustanowione już wcześniej, a znak w chwili obecnej nam o tym przypomina. Jest także informacją dla osób włączających się do ruchu do danej drogi.
Wot, i cała tajemnica.
Some time ago I saw at Colman Road in Norwich a quite old & lovely car for sale: Triumph TR7 only for £775. I think it was something wrong with it because the car stayed on the grass for at least few weeks.
Anyway, the car looked very nice like for me:

Yesterday I was on the car boot in Norwich and I just couldn’t pass by near the sing on the picture below. Who knows me knows why 🙂
How to replace headlight bulb in Renault Laguna II – this is the answer 🙂
A few days ago I had to change a bulb in headlight in my car – Renault Laguna II (2005, 1.9dTi, right hand steering wheel). The exchange has been done on the driver’s side – means on right side of the car (right hand steering wheel).
Contrary to appearances, this was not a simple operation, and even if someone has already done it once – I do not recommend the exchange of the night.
To replace the bulb in the lamp and save time follow steps below:
1) remove the plastic clip (I do not know how it can be removed without breaking, but even then you can reuse it). It is simply to undermine the strength of a flat screwdriver;
2) Unscrew the power steering oil filler cap (it keeps the cover); Continue reading Replacing headlight bulb in Renault Laguna II
