Re: Vinyl wrap

It looked handsome. If it was a 2.5, 1996 onward and a different colour I'd have stumped up the £7000. It was a new car for less than half price!

Re: Vinyl wrap

any more info on the 7K car? would love to know more about it. The standard vs modified question will go on and on..... I do like modified / personalised, but obviously standard is the gold standard. However, both are equally important. if you can retain good examples of both then it keeps the car ...

Re: Vinyl wrap

Sounds like you've come up with a great scheme for devaluing your car. However, it is your car! But personally I'd pass your ad by, if I was looking. They are 23 to 26 years old now and leaving the 'boy racer' phase for the collectable classic phase. It's very much your decision...! Nothing to do w...

Re: Defeated

Can you get a nut splitter in there? Very doubtful as all the brackets for the downpipe are in the way . Was thinking grinder but really doubt even with skinny cutting discs I would get that in. Being a daily it's got to be done in a day and Sundays when I dont see my son are the only chance I get ...

My CPS Failure - the Truth revealed.

At last I can reveal the truth about my pesky CPS fault :shock: :o :( As you may recall, I parked the car up running beautifully, then a fortnight later it would not start or even spark. The engine light was solid on and though there were codes (15 and 17) relating to exhaust gas, nothing that shoul...

Re: Power steering cooling pipe

If you did decide to replace it, I know a small company who would be able to make a new one for you. He'd need to reuse the fittings, and have the old pipe as a pattern.
