    Silverstone Classic

    I spent yesterday at a rather grim Silverstone for the classic, the rain actually stayed away and the event was fantastic. Tickets are pricey but the variety of cars racing was impressive, spent most of the day watching the track with a few mooches through the club stands but most of those are...

    Coaxial Connectors? Cut Coax

    Not strictly for a Clio (or at all) but its only wiring. The previous owner of my mini has turned out to be a bit of a t**t and for some reason has cut the coax for the aerial, so I currently get no radio signal. I know the connector I need for the back of the radio but I'm struggling to find a...

    Silverstone PHSS

    Saw a couple of clios out this morning, 197 and 172 on track, anyone here? Shame about the spin for the 172 but didn’t look tooo badly damaged. Parked behind a AG 200 that put mine to shame as well, really lovely car

    Motorway Speed Brake Judder?

    I'm getting a judder under braking but it only seems to happen at 60 or above, what would be the likely cause, warped discs? I can emergency stop from 50 or under and don't get any judder at all yet head over 60 odd and even light applications give me a fairly bad juddering. I know the 200...

    Pistonheads - St Neots

    Popped along to St Neots for a coffee once again this morning with the monthly pistonheads meet taking place. It's great to have an relaxed meeting like this so close. A few photos from this morning as well. The Ferrari 250 GTE 100% stole the show, its unbelievably cool. Nice to see a V6, they...

    Pistonheads St Neots Meet

    A bitterly cold sunday in St Neots isn't often so appealing but the local Pistonheads meet rarely gets such a good turnout. There's usually a good turnout for a monthly meet but it wasn't expected to be added to on a snowy February morning. There was lots more there including 2 x M2's, GTR's...

    To Decat Or Not... Clio 200

    So I've got a bit of a dilemma at the moment, over whether I should decat the Clio or not. I have had a decat manifold fitted so that with the Akrapovic means the cars fairly loud, and I'm not sure how much louder I would like it to be really, but the car makes a fair amount of pops and bangs...

    200 Door Replacement

    I've woken up this morning to find someone's kindly left me a huge dent in my drivers side door and I'm almost certain it cannot be removed due to the large crease in part of the dent. So I think the obvious option is to change the door itself, the actual replacement doesn't look to bad and is...

    Euans Albi 200

    I picked this up this morning and I'm loving it so far. After the unfortunate demise of my mx5 it was time to for a change, I've had 2 mx5s in a row and with a fault claim now on my insurance the premium for an mx5 anywhere near the spec of the one I crashed would be through the roof. Decision...

    Mx5 No.2 - Supercharged

    I bought this at the beginning of March and it hasn't exactly been plain sailing! A 98 eunos with Mini Cooper s supercharger, roll bar, meister r coilovers and some other bits and bobs. No rust and generally in good condition. I purchased it as I was looking for more power but still loved the...

    Bedford - black v6 (ph2?) following a silver 172.

    Saw these two following each other going into Renhold about 8:30 this morning. Anyone on here? Think the V6 plate started with NA52

    Festival of Speed 14 - My Photos

    Went to the FOS for all 4 days this year. Camped in the festival camping and couldn't recommend the whole experience enough. If you've never been, make sure you do, it's the perfect event for petrol heads as you can get so close to the action. I'm not a great photographer and this was my first...

    135i & MX5

    I went out with my brother for some photos tonight after a leisurely Sunday clean of my Mx5 and his 135i, which is an awesome machine. My Mx5 is also sporting my new wheels, which has given a much improved 'stance' which I'm sure you will all love. So, here are some average photos! DSC_0156...

    Neef on the way into Bedford

    Coming into Bedford tonight, Trophy looked good with the black wheels. Not sure whether it was just the angle (on a hill) but it looked as though it had a lot of forward rake.

    Declaring Brake Pads

    So, if i upgrade the brake pads to something like EBC Greenstuff do i need to declare them. I understand that all mods need to be declared but I've read some things about consumables not needing to be declared, do they only need to be declared if upgraded parts are used as obviously if i had a...

    Black non sport, Bedford Embankment, pulled by the police!

    Was right behind whoever it was when you got pulled, don't know if they are on here but had a loud exhaust and stuff so would guess they are, mainly a thanks for giving me a laugh on a rather boring NYE!
