Re: Disco Seats in Series 2

They won't be bolt straight in, you will have to modify to suit. I think as long as you don't modify the original mounts you won't need cert. Not sure how that works on the old landys though with their squab setup.

Mine suffers from something like this when the tank is extremely low. Sometimes it's almost impossible to start with out having to use that pump on the fuel filter.

Re: server..?

Won't be the site. The site has been running very lean since Sep last year so no server performance issues as such.

Must be ISP related. Perhaps to much downloading in your area.
