Well after the thread I posted about wanting a cheap diesel, this is the outcome...
Bit of background, I’ve always loved these. I mean just look at it. I do just over 30k a year, over the last two years over put 62k on my RangeRover so it’s now worth zero, to stop to being worth a negative...
Another of those impulse buys.
An only school friend had owned this for 6 years, he mentioned maybe selling it and I thought why not.
Spec wise is has two important features:
New wings, cills and rear quarters
I’ll let you know more as I find it out...
Yes I know I should have...
As you know after the Westfield’s I didn’t get in at all with Cubs Supercharged 172.
So while the Clio was up for sale, I started looking at other options.
Having had a Mk1 MX-5 turbo many years a go I started looking at those. Sadly they are all either rusted or other bell ends have got to...
Who do you all use?
Mines quite modified with a super charger etc.
Flux quoted £350 but now won’t honour it due to me wanting to add track days on.
Green light could do sub £400 if I’d owned the car for more than a year which makes no sense!
I don’t really want to pay more than my main car...
That's right..... I bought Cub's car.
I'll keep track of all the goings on in here!
Weird thing is, I went to view this car when I was 17 (13 years ago)! I didn't buy it then, as I couldn't afford it. Spooooky.
Annoyingly I snapped the splitter getting it off the trailer. So that's first...
Recently I bought a Northampton Motorsport/SBD 305bhp Duratec motor which came from a car that was shunted whilst sprinting. It came with most of the bits needed to finish it, including a very damaged Simpson exhaust.
One the engine was in, it was easy to tell that the manifold was a...
Do you know anyone who can give me 21 days insurance on an Alpina? No one seems to want to touch it?
Its registered as a Make - Alpina, Model - Alpina and this seems to spin most insurance companies out.
The Alpina wasn't doing it for me. So this has arrived. Still have the Alpina if anyone wants it?
Bought it unseen off a spec sheet. Its blacker than I expected.... Black with the 'stealth' (lol) pack, is err black.
100 miles in and its doing 32.1mpg, not bad. 3.0 Diesel V6 with 306bhp...
So after having a great time at CSF, it got me thinking about tuning my Westfield.
I got on eBay looking for upgrades and then ended up buying another one......as you do, along with a trailer off gumtree. Good times.
Meet Westie part deux.
Rover 1800 K Series
A friend wants a set up building up. He's assumed I can help lol....
Is there anywhere which sells full rigs as a package. Loads of places do all random parts but very few do all of the parts in one thing.
Looking for a seat, wheel, shift, pedal set up with 3 screens.
Budget of £4000 ex the...
Commuting in the RS3 was pointless. So its now with Hans to sell.
I bought this because its a bit different. It needs some love, but nothing drastic... kinda.
Its a D3 Bi-turbo, Alpina basically took a boggo 320d, swapped the engine for a lightly tuned 123d engine, changed the gearing, body...
I've got a Windows 7 machine with some business critical programs on it which needs to stay Windows 7. It's motherboard and a few other things are dead.
So I've bought a new pc to let it live again, but it won't boot the original PC's hdd.
I've adjusted the boot setting the in bios...
I've got some Cat 6 into a room now I need a good access point to sit on it with a good penetration range.
What will do the job for sub £50.
I've tried re purposing some old routers but they aren't powerful enough.
