  1. 2013 for me too mate. I'd double check the van thing though? Only applies to LGVs I believe, and according to this you should be able to tow a small trailer. Thanks Chris, really helpful detailed response! You are correct, the 3500kg confused me into thinking the actual laden weight but another snippet from the gov site confirms this: You can also tow heavier trailers if the total MAM of the vehicle and trailer is not more than 3,500kg So yeah probably wouldn't even be able to tow the empty trailer! Worth taking the test or hiring
  2. Thinking of starting to tow the Celica about as it's going to need a fair bit of work over the next few weeks and months. Totally new to this and wanted to check my understanding with my children's driving licence: If you passed your driving test after 1 January 1997 and have an ordinary category B (car) licence, you can: Drive a vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes or 3,500kg MAM towing a trailer of up to 750kg MAM Tow a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as the combined weight of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg So with that in mind, hypotheticall
  3. I've just chucked a fair few high res ones over on dropbox, did they go through ok?
  4. I'll get mine in this week, promise! That's actually a cool photo as it is
  5. On the Celica I have Advan AD08R's for summer use just put Michelin Pilot Sport 4's on the second set of wheels which are fantastic in wet and dry - really impressed. On my daily Astra the OEM tyres are these: https://www.blackcircles.com/tyres/brands/michelin/energy-saver Insane longevity, 42k miles and I'm just about to replace the fronts. Great all round grip, perfect for a sensibly driven car
  6. Hi spaff did u find out what was giving you problems when I met you at stonefly jap show you had concerns re new electrical item you had fitted Roy 

    1. Spaff


      Hi Roy how's things? Not sure yet seems to be a fuel issue - in the process of changing fuel pump and rewiring to battery. Going to check all lines for pressure loss and go from there. Small chance it is an electrical gremlin too as injector pulse was a little bit wobbly but fingers crossed nothing else :)

      Hi spaff hm yes these sort of problems very hard to pin point if I can be of any help I have various test kit for fuel problems and also electronic test for injection problems so if that would help come over and use the kit if that will help you 

  7. Having seen this im person on Sunday I can honestly say Its one of the best celicas I have seen! Was good to meet you

    1. Spaff


      Ahh you're too kind bud thank you v much! Yours was looking good too :D

      Defo good to meet, sorry took me a while to put the face to the name haha

    2. commandosqueak


      haha yeah its ok. I was exhausted that day so was quite quiet. Hopefully see you at another meet 

  8. Ah that's a shame, I just assumed you'd be near Milton Keynes from your first post! Any pics of how yours look now?
  9. Can highly recommend Mint Alloys just outside of Luton if you're down this way Think I paid 312 for 4 17s, not the cheapest but did a lovely job a few years back with no sign of issues yet
  10. To be honest veilside kits pop up for sale very regularly and aren't that expensive brand new anyways (assuming the one you're looking at is also a replica) so it might just be worth holding off for the next one
  11. Not that I can be bothered to read the comments of online news articles anymore (the world is a scary place) but I'd be interested to hear what the majority of the population i.e non car people have to say about this I'd imagine it's pretty well received?
  12. Oh man I think I've actually seen a video called that now you mention it. I'd forgotten that for a reason...
  13. 2 screwdrivers and a hammer! For the future, K&N ones have a nut moulded in to the bottom of them
