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!
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...
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...
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...
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...
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?
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.
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...
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.
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...
