  1. My headlights are really dull , any suggestions that i can do to improve the visability at night, would some in pro after markets lights be any better, i have changed the bulbs and they dont seem to have made any difference, i was going to put hid's in but have decided against it as they wont be in prisoms or height adjustable so that seems like a no no according to the law they are illegal and a mot faliure....help anyone. :shrug:
  2. Hi all. I currently have vmax coilover suspension, but the ride is just to hard, i want to obtain a nice ride height as i run on 15's and sometimes 16's not bothered if its coil over or just springs and dampers, just want a comfy ride and the ca to look good on a decent ride height. any ideas and prices, i have just moved house so need it to be on the budget side of things.

  5. I have seen a number of ads in and around re 52mm inlet manifolds for sale, how can i tell what size i have on mine?and is it worth putting larger ones on? and also can you put larger throttle bodies on , from an audi like the 2.2ltr ones i think, is it worth it? :scratch:
  6. hi all , i am trying to track down a non return valve for a 1990 1.8 16v ( the alloy one on the feed pipe) apparently this was a mod due to the heater matrix blowing up due to excessive pressure caused by the heating system, i went in to my local vag agent who told me that they no longer make this part, when i asked what i should do , he suggested putting it back to original...which begs the question , wont my heater matrix be prone to leaking as thats why the mod was brought out.....any suggestions or advise as to what i should do or where i can get a replacement...appologies if this is in the wrong section . :brickwall:
  7. Okay checked the cable and seems to be connected to the selector in the cabin controls, i ran the engine and the pipes seem to get hot, they seem a little soft and could prob abably do with replacing......just a question where does the cable at the back of the cabin controls got to ???? :brickwall:
  8. Got in my car this morning and found that my heater has stopped working, the fan works but just blows cold air..... what is the best things to check before i have to start considering the heater matrix is knackered.....and how easy is it to replace...is there a how to section on this?
