I remember "jump" starting (well charging really) a coach, with my Fiat Cinquecento. It was the only vehicle that we could fit between the coach and a wall. It was a school football team coach which had been left with the lights on. After about five minutes of charging it started straight away. The looks on peoples faces were priceless! My grin was from ear to ear when I drove off!

Were you to venture to the E36 forum I used to frequent when I had my M3s, you'd find discussions on how to compensate for the slight drop it gives to the rear o/s of the car due to the battery's weight.


It's not big, but once you know it's there...


I'm tall, so little old ladies are always getting me to reach things on the supermarket shelves for them

Neither of those as it turned out Mike, but I couldn't have wished for a nicer person to assist.
