You want to get a different, you know, a second opinion on it may be that you know, with that kind of mileage 200,000 miles It needs that but beat like I said, because it's so much money to do that, and I don't know if it's worth it.

You're smart, Steve Tow. We're talking about second opinions. When when you know when we have medical things going on, and they want to do some big deal on us. We say, you know, I want a second because it makes sense. And it really This is the right move on your part, officiated one of the quick question. My wife has a Toyota Camry. She got her father and the 1999, but only has 115,000 miles on it, but Something that Ah been are the front headlight that night? It doesn't provoke. Jack. Looks like you know, they're fogged up right there fogged up. Year. Harry takes the whole lighter.

They still may come out of plastic and They just fogged up. You can get them reconditioned and you'll get much better illumination in recondition the lenses remove the cataracts and you can put high higher intensity boy itself to buy the parts. What's that again? Is something that I could try to do myself like every place in parts. You know they were kits available that you Khun Bride to clean the headlights. There are If you go on YouTube, you'll see all kinds of videos on how to do it yourself. Okay. I thought I'll deal with that. All right. Good luck, Steve. Thank you. Okay. Now, if anybody else has questions, Corliss at 8886927234 you think we could fit Robert Erskine Right now We're going to go to Robert Ozcan, who's been patiently waiting.

So what are we talking about today from jolly old England and especially Europe. Which we are still a part ofthe. We haven't left Europe yet, but watch this space we probably will be. What are we talking about today? Well, the U. That's the European Government and authorities are seriously looking with European car manufacturers to looking at this wretched problem off excessive speeding. Had one way that they are looking at it Is there posed the question. Should the accelerator pedal or the gas pedal? Is you calling on your side of the pond? Should the gas pickle be used as a means of curbing speeding? So the idea is that if you're going through a particular area where there is a speed plate Which is indicating the speed the safe speed that you should be driving at. That doesn't mean to say that you should be driving at it. If it's not safe. We will come on to that in a second. Does that mean that if you want to exceed that, and you firmly shove your big, heavy foot right foot onto the gas levels You're lead it for what?.
