Title: I'll keep the day job....
Post by: Scarpia on 12 October, 2009, 08:45:14 PM
Just got my VL.(very nice too!!)
Unusual in recent times ,my heart skipped a beat when looking at the classifieds.
After years of hoping to find a fuel guage sender unit for the aprilia, I noticed an ad for new reproductions!!This is an incredibly complex item and the last missing piece on my car. In my mind it was unimaginable that anybody would ever reproduce a copy of the original but there was in all its glory.Joy of joys until I reached the bottom line.....

I guess I'll just have to keep dipping my wooden stick in the tank to see how much petrol I have for another few decades....

William,

Well lucky you not only the chance to get an Aprilia fuel gauge (OK, I guess it costs the earth), but also Viva Lancia!, which has not yet graced my part of London!

Nor has it yet reached the wilds of Oxfordshire! The Postal Service is busy commiting suicide.

VL reached Bedfordshire yesterday.

If anyone has trouble receiving it due to post let me know & I'll email it to you, I scan it every month, so no great problem.
Not sure about copyright though :-\

You're lucky John, in our part of the world the Postal Service commits theft!  ;D

Hmm!  I wonder if those who expect VL to deliver information to all members at the SAME time will take note of the comments here.....?

I also get the financial Times the night before it's published which is handy for insider dealing....
