Re: Your fleet running reports

Toyota UZ engine? That would be lovely if they fit. Err, dunno. I’m not clued up on Jap stuff ! It’s a V8 from a Soarer IIRC. It fits quite nicely, it’s all in and running already, just needs a very slight mod to the bonnet. Here’s a pre-body shop pic. They were going to fabricate a subtle bulge to...

Yep.

Next job is trimming the interior. He’s been working on this for at least five years though, I think we’re still a few years away from actually being on the road !

Re: Your fleet running reports

Having waited over two weeks for it to arrive I finally replaced the window cable on the Touareg. PITA job not helped by the cheap aftermarket parts being so badly made. I ended up doing a mix & match job because some of the original, worn, 15 year-old parts were still a better fit than the new ones...

I seem to get a lot of mailshots from ebay, this morning's was titled:

"Like Watersports and My Dog?"

I thought - that's VERY niche :shock:

Scatmunching Dog

Our youngest, Mia, has taken to eating poo. Not just any poo, *fresh* poo.

As in, hasn’t-even-hit-the-ground fresh.

When Susie is “busy”, Mia is right there catching it.

So gross.

The ones fitted to the 4S, Turbo and GT2 are the ones to have as a standard alloy.
The ones that point forwards on one side and backwards on the other ?? No thanks !

These 5-spokes are the lightest OEM eighteens. That's why we've used them 8-)

Re: Your fleet running reports

I’m steeling myself to start tidying the garage. To give myself some elbow room the Porsche is going to have to live outside for a few days so this afternoon it got moved to the driveway. I know I’m biased but I do think the 996 is continuing to age very nicely. Maybe I’ll even drive it this week :o...

Where’s the car price crash apocalypse ?

Nothing seems to have happened yet. I’m sure it would be different if I wanted to trade in something interesting right now, but for buyers, advertised asking prices don’t seem to have budged at all.

How long before it all filters through ?
