Its going to be an interesting day full of topics to keep it amusing. Whats the weather like for everyone today. Hope you all have sunshine.
    Weathers crap here - cloudy but humid.

    Bored at work.

    Annoyed that the TT has the 'Dash Pod Issue'.

    Found a blue flame TT 225 exhaust for £150 cat back (used) though and agreed to buy.

    Bored of training the new guy. I hate training.

    Mmm, sorry the weather is not so good for you guys, we are on day 8 of sunshine in scotland. You will notice i am counting as we usually get mostly rain it seems these days. Hopefully it will pick up for you all soon. Im not outside so i dont know the temp, but can feel the heat through the window at the moment.

    As W3sty and scott have said, she is an ex and fkr a this reason alone, you must both move on. Keep in touch with her by phone if ou must, but you shouldnt be having her diwn, presumably saying iver at yours, thats just too much, it may lead her to think thT you can sort your differences and im sure thats not what need. Didnt you mention a new mrs and blackpool the other day. Whats she going to think about an ex showing up? Life is complicated enough without all this smudge.

    Agreed. The key term here is ex. Keep it that way.

    We're both trying but it's very very hard. I think we might've both realised that things were better off before and if we'd talked about problems them we wouldn't have broken up....hmmm....toughy

    Well dude, I didn't realise it was quite like that....

    If you are genuine and think it might actually work, then maybe it would be worth a punt.

    However, you have to think how long it will be until the same issues that split you up in the first place reoccur?

    In which case smash it!

    I was with my ex for over 5 years and she messed me up badly to the point I was on anti depressants. I wouldn't even say hello to her if I bumped into her in the street now.

    The whole situation has made me stronger and helped me realise what I want from a relationship. My current gf is great and she has really opened my eyes.

    Rip it out and fit a Stack unit

    Is it the actual unit at fault or switch/sensor/wiring issue for the pod?

    Often the case, however the breaking free and the several months after the initial break up are the hardest part. Short term loss, long term gain.

    The chip set at the back of the dash. A simple manufacturing fault. Often the fuel gauge and temp gauges are the ones, however some people get issues with rev counters and speedos as well.

    I am going to leave it for a few days and see what it does. It's had a new CTS and that's deffo working fine.

    Think very carefully about what you do. Dont give her hope if its not a serious thing for you. You have to both sit down and talk things through without the sex. If you can get by the problems and insecurities and trust issues, then thats good, but if you cant, she remains an ex. 2 years together is not really a long time to get to know someone properly. Maybe try just veing friends, dating etc for a while. Keep it simple. Sorry for preaching. I hate seeing people get hurt. I wont say any more.
