Hi All,
Been in a huge struggle living with a Rover Streetwise for a few years.
just gave up when as it started giving me loads of grief trying to start it to get to and from work. Just bought a CMAX flexifuel 1.8 and am loving it.
I live in South Wales not far from Newport and travel back and fore to Cardiff each day. What a real pleasure it is to drive the CMAX... grand kids and family are also well chuffed. I wonder if any of you good people on this forum have some good hints and tips regarding my new CMAX.
Kindest Regards
Pete

Hi Pete,
Sounds as though you are happy with your ‘new' car, I am really, pleased with mine. You asked if anyone has any good hints or tips, the best tip I can give is to read through all of the past postings on the club forum, even if it is not about your model.
I bought my car in December so it wasn't too difficult to remain indoors and read them. Perhaps it could be something to do on a rainy day.
Thanks to the great folks who take the trouble to contribute to this forum, I have found out about a lot of things; from explanations as to how things work – or don't, because they are not fitted to my car, to where to find and buy the bits and pieces that we all like to add.
Happy C-maxing!
Rolo.

Many Thanks Rolo,
I will read through all the posts when i get the time.. have already seen 1 bit of info which I am a bit worried about and that is the wheel repair kit v the spacesaver wheel. I would much rather be able to whip off a wheel and replace rather than faff around with the wheel repair stuff. I am getting on a bit mind so thats why i am leaning towards the spacesaver. Technofear :-)
Kindest Regards
Pete

Hi MM... many thanks for the warm welcome. Am hoping / looking forward to some good times behind the wheel of my CMAX. My driving experience with my Rover Streetwise was quite troublesome.

Kindest Regards
Pete
