    No MoT for 40 Year Old Cars

    Sorry no - I have seen many classics that look lovely on the outside but are rotten underneath. Few years ago we had an old mini come in, beautiful on the outside and inside but was so bad underneath had the dangerous marker ticked on it, Guy was planning on selling it to someone who was coming down from Scotland that afternoon to buy it. The main parts of the test are still relevant to a 40 year old car.
  2. Klarius will generally last 2-3 years, genuine toyota are usually minimum 10 years and can usually be welded when they do go
  3. If you get it wrong it can really affect handling. Lots of the MR2 guys end up going back to stock (wider rears) sizes after fitting the same size aftermarket wheels all round.
  4. could be a faulty exhaust - can you hear any vibration in any of the silencers. Would try and get euro to swap them for replacements Klarius are on the cheaper end, would try a Bosal if you can get one - or try a good used oem one

    Car share with a friend?

    As hes such a good friend I wouldnt risk it personally One of my best mates fell out with me after doing him a favour on his car even though I was £2500 out of pocket as a result ( and didnt even say anything)

    Rear fogs

    Assuming you have one tail light that is a single filament bulb and one that is a stop and tail. Swap the single filament for a twin filament and wire the brighter side to the fog switch

    E10 fuel?

    Using Ethanol as fuel does little to reduce CO2 emissions anyway once you factor in the energy used to produce, fertilize, harvest, process and transport it. Its a nice idea but ultimately flawed.
  9. it works with the rest of the kit in my opinion

    Gen 7..good used buy or not?

    Can work both ways, I've bought cars from members on here that have had some serious (and even dangerous) bodges. And to add to that Ive seen work by "specialists" of the same quality. Really need to get the car checked out properly I guess....

    Gen 7..good used buy or not?

    lots of dogs but lots of good cars just because it has a lot of service stamps doesnt mean its not rotten and vice versa - no service history doesnt mean its a dog main thing is getting a good look underneath and seeing how it drives im regretting parking mine up now - it never let me down and is still solid underneath but I need a change now so wont be bringing it back

    Gen 7 Roof Bars.

    i have a set but one rubber foot is missing - will find it when i tidy up one day
  13. I don't think they ever use the info, so many places online making "show plates" without asking for docs it makes a mockery of the whole scheme

    Cruse Control.

    aftermarket kit would be easier to fit than trying to refit the factory one there is a member on here who has done it

    Petrol prices :(

    Started training for london to brighton last week so ive been doing my 13 mile (each way) commute on the bike With traffic in the morning in the car it takes around 40 mins to an hour and its almost always an hour on the way back Got back in an hour and 4 minutes on the bike yesterday so its a no brainer now to become a regular thing until it gets icy, getting quicker each ride as well as I get more familiar with the cycle paths
