  1. What advice does "bobthefuelguy" have?.
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu-VlcnsV6s&list=RDCMUC1pOTJteEef10zJM0cHs4iQ
  3. Difficult to see why Toyota would spend a small fortune developing a Celica when they already have two versions of the Supra, the GR86 in the wings, and all this at a time when coupes are a dying breed
  4. Carnoisseur, rtechshop, and tarmacsportz have the front pair available to order on-line..but they may not carry stock for such a niche market, and simply place any orders they take from Zunsport. Worth calling them?.
  5. Zunsport, Debs. AFAIK, they are still available for the Gen 7. I have them on my Cayman..they're very popular with Porsche owners.. https://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/186920-introducingkeegan/
  6. No, Kev has worked for himself for almost as long as I can remember. He is a fan of Jap cars, and has owned a Civic Type R, and Impreza Wagon recently, and is running a Suzuki Swift Sport which I saw for the first time yesterday.
  7. My mechanic is not a Gen 7 engine specialist. However, he is an excellent mechanic (as opposed to what I would call a "fitter", who works at a main dealer). I've known Kev since the early 60's, he has approaching 50 years experience working on all marques, and can be trusted to do a good job at a very fair price. I should mention he is not VAT registered, so that's 20% off the bill for starters. He's worked on quite a few club members cars over the years, so is familiar with the Gen 7. How much engine work..I don't honestly know. One current member who will only use Kev for repairs is SlickCelica. I called in to see him yesterday morning, to book one of my cars in, so I know he is fully booked for this month. If you want to give him a call, it's K. H. Motors on 01773 714450 8.30 to 5 Monday to Friday. Location is five minutes from M1 J26, or 15 minutes from A38/M1 J28. HTH
  8. 54.1 is the width of the centre bore.
  9. Quite a few cars from the VAG group have a 5x100 PCD. There's one or two others such as Rover 75, and Chrysler Crossfire, but mainly VAG. All have a larger centre bore than the Celica, so a set of spigot rings and tapered nuts, and you're good to go.
  10. Did you know the guy who designed the Gen 6 was called, Kermit?
  11. I'd be absolutely gutted. The amount of work that must have gone into that garden
  12. By coincidence, I was looking at this car yesterday, just after it was first listed on Gumtree. Quite simply, the words, "barge pole" spring to mind. It would take a brave man to take on a non-starting Cat C. If it's only going to cost £250 to get it running, any sensible person would do that, as it would make a big difference to its value. Also, I'm under the impression the earliest GT's were on a "06" plate, not "05".
  13. Is that an Afghan Hound on the passenger seat?. I've heard they're expensive to maintain https://www.k9rl.com/dog-breeds/hounds/afghan-hound/
