    pistion direction

    Intake valves are generally bigger than exhaust valves so whichever pocket is larger will likely be intake. However I too would be asking the company, not worth gambling!

    Engine Bearings

    The colours will relate to bearing grade and will set the running clearances.

    Bent valves have clipped the bores

    If you've got a very fine and small sanding block I would use that but go at it with care! Pay particular attention to not damaging anywhere the gasket sealing bead will sit on. All in my opinion only of course!

    Bent valves have clipped the bores

    If it doesn't affect the gasket and the top ring reversal point is lower than the damage (which it looks like it is from the discolouration on the bore) then I'd say its OK. It may need fettling or something to ensure there are no raised burrs/edges that would stand the cyl head fireface off...

    Megane 265 for daily duties

    I came from a z4 on run flats which was just horrific so wanted to try a comfy car. More than happy with the ride, but arch gaps are a little large! Mpg wise I can get 37mpg max on a mway journey... M6, lots of 50 limits and no right foot fun. And yeah town is bad, mid 20s. As others have said...

    Megane 265 for daily duties

    ^ just realised that undersells the driving aspect of the 265...i do enjoy it, just not as raw as the 182 - although that had exhaust, map and suspension mods.

    Megane 265 for daily duties

    I've got a 265 and do a pretty much identical commute, get around 30mpg. I love it, doesn't have cup suspension and 19's though as I wanted a little more comfort. I had more fun (also keen on a Friday blast home) in my old 182 though as the speed in the 265 is a little more effortless, so you...

    mk2 dynamique alloy - bolt cover issue

    Hi All, Following a run-in with a pot hole I have recently bought a replacement alloy (mk2 dynamique, the 'swirly' one, not the 15" version of the 172 alloy) from RenParts (would definitely recommend them). However when I have gone to put the plastic centre cover back on the bolt seems to be...

    Leaking water :(

    I've discovered this problem too, how would I go about checking the drain tubes?

    My feet are freezing!

    Probably nothing, but if I remember correctly, there are a few gromits in the footwell/bulkhead..maybe they aren't there? i.e. letting cold air in when your driving? Shouldn't contribute too much, but I guess it could be worth 30seconds to check?

    1.2 thinks doors are open

    Should've said, I've checked its not the boot switch because my interior light is coming on too, which doesn't happen when the boot is open. I've had a play with the door switches just now and it could possibly be one of those, i'll have a proper play in the daylight tomorrow night. Cheers Guys

    Car wont start

    to clear up a potentially confusing point... When I said "it will turn over but not fire", I meant it will crank but not turn over

    Car wont start

    Hi, My car won't start, it will turn over but not fire. I've tried jump starting...this did nothing (so rules out battery issues I think) When I push start it it starts fine, and will then restart when warm. (this rules out starter motor?) Also the exhaust gas warning light has come...

    22" Tv help

    If its only the sound that's making you change, you could look at a cheap pair of laptop/pc speakers that can plug in to the headphone socket of the tv. I have this set up (just because the speakers are on my desk anyway) and it works well.

    RB/Inferno Cupped cars having xenons and leather

    So these would just be 182s with both cup packs then? So what's the difference between say a cup packed RB and a cup RB? (obviously apart from the leather and xenons) Thanks

    RB/Inferno Cupped cars having xenons and leather

    Hi, Im looking at getting a 182 in the next few months. I thought the 182 'Cups' i.e. the RB and Infernos didn't come with xenons and leather. But I have seen a few that do. Were they optional extras that the original buyer has simply added at the factory or will it generally mean that...
