What are stanchion clamps?  8)
the air is cooler and more petroleum-distillate infused in a garage, this clarifies the mind and helps with the understanding of all things mechanical. In contrast, air in the house carries the latent bi-products of sanitation chemicals and room air fresheners. This, in turn, causes the testicles to retreat slightly, reducing mechanical aptitude by an order of magnitude. Then again, maybe it's just that the beer fridge is in the garage.

I assume the results of this thread...

It doesn't make much sense, given that the 11xx series and 1200 AC/LC all use same basic tech, must be a manufacturing issue.  ::) :biggrin:

Done and dusted.
Bmw have been waiting for more stock. I was at BMW Umhlanga and they informed me that 5000 were arriving next week
