  1. Regarding hurting the value of the car, don't think it will, I deal with very high end cars and ones such as DB5's are having fuel injection, A/C fitted etc to modernise them and make them more comfortable. As long as its done correctly it will be ok.

    Do you think fitting EFI would be wise or should I keep carbs?

    Planning & Building works

    I went into local politics a few years back at a very, very low level, my dealings with our local city council have done nothing but confirm my opnion that you are correct. Councillors are allowed meetings that are unrecorded with developers (how handy), in some councils councillors do not have to declare if something they are voting on might benefit them. Regards planning, a planning authority wont knock back anything it thinks might win on an appeal as they don't have the money to fight the cases. As regards infrastructure I said to our local council leader when he was trying to talk down to me about not understanding. I just said "you can sell houses and you cant sell roads" he just smirked. The system is rotten to the core, how many political parties are backed by developers?
