  1. https://www.westfieldmotors.co.uk/about-us Looks like you have options. I used these guys before in Rayleigh for a geo setup on my Gen4,was a long time ago but was impressed with their service.They had a few Celicas in there at the time having different bits done.
  2. More engine porn,from Steve G's ST165. What you can really do with a BEAMS lump,lots of parts,a big turbo,and knowledge.(and a couple of quid!) 400+ bhp
  3. All down to budget as well . Though as its a CS, get the best you can afford. I've recommended these a few times,did my Gen4 brilliant for years til I got the garage sorted.You can specify your model to get an exact fit.Properly breathable,waterproof,and secure straps all round.You should always try and uncover the car to let the paint etc breathe whenever possible though,no cover is totally ideal for any long length of time. I went for Stormshield + outdoor cover with wing mirror pockets,in black.Lasted years. https://www.specialisedcovers.com/stormshield-plus-car-cover 01943 864 646 to tell them your exact model.
  4. My gen4 hasn't done any real mileage either,its garaged and on a trickle charger and has been out a few times but even so,did a brake check,and as I do the servicing myself I gave her fresh oil and filter,plugs etc last week.Parts aren't expensive so a no brainer for me really.But yes a health check on the brakes for you should be done as Jim mentioned.Cars don't like being sat around,electricals should be fully utilised when you do get her out too,get the lights going,heater blowing ,etc.
  5. His car has beem mot'd every year it seems. Had a couple of fails that needed sorting due to emissions so im guessing its still got all the kit! Not seen him probably since his wedding, christ that was ages ago. Should catch up.
  6. Damn straight. Yeah you never know who you may bump in to. I was in Sainsburys looking for a birthday card and the woman next to me commented on my t shirt that had a yellow Barry Sheene '7' decal on it. (hero of mine from childhood, small decal on all my cars) Started a chat and it was his neice, Paula. Lot of the family are still local as her Dad ran Paul Smart motorcycles in Kent. I was trying to act like i wasn't exploding inside, ha. But yeah thats a great story, proper hero stuff that.
  7. Ha, the ol' Beams Gen4 shouldn't be underestimated
  8. Need a full system or just a part?
  9. TCB had them at beginning of the year as i was looking to replace the ones on the GT4 i had then.Rears were about 150 +VAT at the time each.But yes,you're right they're showing discontinued now
  10. You'll get a shock when you see how much the hub backing plates are
  11. If a genuine original one is available and not silly money then fair enough, if not id just have a stainless one built to oem spec mate rather than a pattern part.
