  1. is this going to look dodgy to the DVLA ?

    bought replacement plates from ebay, they didnt need anything other then my reg and the money.
  2. Gen 7 GT Transmission fluid change

    I used motul gear 300. Biggest difference was that in winter the gear shift is no longer slow and has drag anymore. Shifts smooth and easy when cold.
  3. stone chip laquer damage??

    I fixed it up now using a simoniz clear coat pen. Uv activated one. Will see how it goes and update on its longevity. If it fails then cheapest option will be a bonnet bra.
  4. Grim spark plugs

    Heh. 1995 fiesta mk3. Those plugs had done 9 years and 35k miles of use. Genuine ford platinum plugs rated to 40k miles. Plugs worked fine no missfire or issues at all. Thought id change them before they seized into the head. Made a lot of creaking noises when unscrewing out. Replaced them with denso iridium plugs. Noticed mpg increase straight away and car feels more torquey. Had the car 20 years now so next plug change will be around 2025
  5. Petrol prices :(

    Vpower is a ripoff. Switched to momentum99 and no difference other than money saved.

  7. Gen 7 GT Transmission fluid change

    I left the drain plug open and filled in some cheapo brand gear oil to rinse out the box a bit. 190 needs 2.3litres so if u buy 3litres you can put through half a litre or so as a rinse. Mine dragged out some dirty oil when i rinsed it like that
  8. stone chip laquer damage??

    Will try that. Got a link to the best type of laquer to use for the job? Dont need much since its less than a pound size

    on my fiesta i had a faulty brake hose that acted as a one way valve so brake would stay on for one wheel where the dodgey hose was and not retract.
  10. so this happened probably last year or the year before, what i did was just clean the area and spray some laquer over it. but now im wanting to do more of a permanent fix to it. i dont think it warrants a new paint spray job thats gonna cost loads. whats the best way to fix this so that it doesnt get any worse? this is on the bonnet where the bumper meets drivers side.

    doubt it the master. have you checked to see if one side pads are retracting more then the other side?
  12. Accident damage.

    I thought that a 3rd partys insurance cannot write off your car and only your own insurance company can write it off. 3rd partys insurance can only repair it?

    For brake imbalance you mentioned you changed the calipers and hoses. Did you also get new brake pads and possibly discs too?
  14. morrisons petrol

    should work, iv swapped over from vpower to tescos momentum 99. no difference other than 5 quid saving per tank full.
  15. Celica return?

    Either way a potential gen8 i doubt will be a na high revver. Everything is getting a turbo slapped to it these days.
