Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Spotted in Clitheroe a couple of weeks ago FOG6Y, a grey Porsche with Carl at the wheel, and then yesterday I spotted FOG1E, a black Audi also in Clitheroe, with a lady at the wheel, which may have been his misses.

Which Oil filter for SSI 1800TI??

Hi All,
The Mann Filter W811/83 is the one I use on the Ti, its the shortest one I've found and is far easier to fit.
This is the one for me, from my local Motor Factor
