I wound up using a product called "Shower Power' which my wife uses to clean the haze off the glass in the shower.
I have wet down the windscreen after cleaning it with this stuff and it doesn't appear to have the greasy streaks on it anymore - but time will tell.
Don't know if that stuff is sold anywhere else.

On top of that, this is about the time when they switched from one to two pins, it would be hard for anyone to say without looking.........

Sure, it is a wash, but still the coffers are deplete for a period of time, and interest on monies is lost and not recovered until the revenue stream returns.

I was pretty surprised that Bob Hope himself died. I was under the impression that him and George Burns had a deal whereby one of them had to live forever, so when Burns passed, I fully expected Hope to remain indefinitely.

While we all think the Insurance Companies are out for our best interests, they are in business to cut the absolute smallest check that they can get away with. To that end they always use contract adjusters that are known to provide the lowest estimated values for totals.
Good luck on your settlement.

That could be fixed for way less if you do a bunch of the work yourself.
Paint's probably going to be the most expensive part of it, usually running about $100 per square foot at a good shop.

Furthermore,I do not attack individuals,just the diesel W123 in general which to take personally is quite asinine. Todays diesels are tomorrows gassers body parts

A solid performance for little Nick Heidfeld, who had a chance to show his stuff, and I am happy for Alex Wurtz in third.
It has to be embarrassing for the Gentlemen at Toyota HQ, reportedly with the biggest budget in F - 1, to see their customer Williams do so much better on a small budget.
Anyone who ever worked with a large Japanese corporation and their 'decision by committee' style will understand.
Not much is to be said for Ferrari. I only hope it is not a return to Italian drama.
I wonder whether Luca di Montezemolo now doubts the wisdom of some of his decisions in regard to the Ferrari F-1 team.

Don't know about the other one. May pertain to your cats or o2 sensors.
Did you clear the codes after changing the MAF?
I got similar codes when I put on my Eisenmann and the flow changed but they went away when the system adapted.
