  1. Hi (and welcome!) It worked fine, but I ended up buying another Android HU with a larger screen and mounting it in portrait in the console. I made a gadget to do the HVAC too. There's a little on it here. To my shame, I've not finished reworking the dash around the screen so it doesn't look great still, but it all works really well

  2. As you may know, I have been playing with in car PCs and Android tablets for quite a while now. They've never quite worked out for me because the final integration with the car wasn't quite there. Head units seemed to have caught up with what I was trying to achieve recently so I decided to invest in a cheap-ish Android one and I fitted it last weekend. I'll go into detail about the ins and outs / pros and cons of the unit and how I fit it, but for now here are a few pics in the mean time: It has a 10.1" screen and I think these pictures make it look more 'stuck on' than it does when you're actually in the car. I've removed the original head unit but I need to keep the old face plate for a while because I still need the A/C controls. That will hopefully change at some point. It's early days and still in the 'proof of concept' stage. There are quite a few things I need to iron out, but so far, pretty good.

  3. I can highly recommend Abbey Motorsport in Oxted, Surrey. They carried out a P1 service on mine back in February while I waited, or they do have a couple of loan cars .

  5. I would prefer an indy tbh. I am considering buying the parts from Nissan and getting someone I know to do it. I mean I could do it but won't get a stamp in the book. I got quoted £332 by Nissan London West. The guy asked for my reg, then asked how old the car was, then asked if I needed an interim service, then told me I need a Major service (because the car is 4 years old) I told him I was happy with interim as the car has only done 8k miles, then he proceeded to ask me if the car was petrol or diesel [emoji2959] Needless to say I am not taking it to them.

  6. My dealer alerted me to this when mine first expired. Since then I carry a generic can version which will work on any car. I know t's not nice stuff and the chances of it being useful are a bit slim but for the sake of a few quid it might just get you out of trouble when you really need it. Yes, I have the spare wheel kit. I think there are a few wheels which will fit but, as Les says, it's the brake clearance that's the issue (find one with the correct stud pattern and rolling radius isn't that hard). The wheel fits in the boot and the Bose base fits in the wheel. You need to remove some of the additional under-floor packing to allow it to fit. Edit: the biggest problem will be housing the road wheel (especially the rear) in the car. I have a bag to store the road wheel in to save the car getting dirty. Worst case scenario you have the leave the wheel under a hedge and hope no one finds it before you return to pick it up!
