Re: New 1 series

Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Sport. Would you recommend them? They are on my list as possible replacements, I've got the PSS on mine and whilst they aren't totally knackered their best times are behind them. They must be at least 25k miles old as they were on there when I got it and I've never changed t...

Re: Decent car YouTubes

I've been stuck in bed with the bad ghey aids for a week so have been hitting You Tube pretty hard, and one of the stand outs has been a channel called Rich Rebuilds which feature a guy fixing up salvaged Teslas, the problem being that Tesla don't sell parts so he's had to buy doner cars in order to...

Re: Guess the new classic car

Looks like Inspector Linleys car in the 90's TV series, I guess that was a Bristol?

Is it going to get a 2JZ swap?

Re: Warm Coat

I've had a North Face McMurdo Parka for a few years and it's great but a bit overkill for the UK as it's rarely cold enough for it.

One of the guys on PH works with the insurance regulatory thing (read the thread) they said if the cars to manufacturers spec you don’t need to inform the ins company even if they change it I'd imagine that applies to the spec of cars when they were new, not backdating updates in new models to exis...

The Smart car is a bumper off job too :roll: at this point I can remove it in about 2 minutes, and keep the relevant torx screwdrivers in the car.

Re: Your fleet running reports

The Transit van has been sold, first to see will buy, and so it was. Fed up with wankers in my street thinking they live somewhere posh and complaining about a van being parked within 100ft of their house. Also it was a bit OTT for what I ended up using it for, so I'll probably get a T5 like everyon...

Re: eBay 996 build thread

What I want is a de-stroked LS3, which is the 6.2 block with the crank from the 4.8 Vortec for 5.6 litres and (with appropriate parts) 600+bhp and 9000rpm. Not cheap, but not as expensive as it sounds. That's what I'd like for the Spazda (mit Quaife sequential box) but even though the big bits (blo...

Re: eBay 996 build thread

I do love how people always think changing to a completely different engine is such an easy job :lol: Often the engine swap is the easy bit (although adapting engine A to gearbox B can be a challenge if you're blazing a new path). It's getting all the other crap like the instruments, A/C, and so on...
