    As per title.

    Delivered to Lancashire, or can collect if local.



    i will check the boxes of parts ive got for you - i know i have some ECU's but think they may be all ABS rather then engine

    A small bit of grease and a long water pump pliers worked fine for me to fit the rollers - put them in the channel. line up the ball on the arm and a slight amount of preasure should do it. You might need to move the window up and down to get the optimum position to get at it.

    good advice thank you

    i will likely give it a go when the VR is back from its underside work as the interior is all currently out

    I have the group buy ones if you need an unused one. Pretty sure I broke one too whilst trying  to fit it, so gave up 🤣

    credit to those we have here still - a very helpful bunch

    thanks cressa that would be great as i can investigate a scan of the unused one for 3D printing-  ive PM'd you

    I found a used one yesterday if it’s any good to you?

    that would be handy dox thank you

    i might be able to get my friend to get the dimensions from it & then use it to try & stop the slight rattle on the VR6 d/s

    Worn roller cause the window to rattle - especially when closing the door window part way down.

    Passenger side won't be as worn, you could switch them around

    good thinking dox 

    i know i brought 2 sets that is the annoying thing - i might have a search through the group buys to check who did the run of them previously

    if i can get the 3D printer file i might be able to get some done somewhere

    This one again.  D/S window is very slow when it goes up.  Unscrewed the glass and checked the operation of the regulator.  Nice and smooth (i greased the motor etc a few years back).  The glass itself doesnt seem to move smoothly though.  Tried moving it up and down by hand and if definitely seems to bind on the lock side of the door.  And when connected there is some kind of click as it moves from fully down to about 1/3 the way up.  Is there any way to remove the glass without taking the regulator out?  Also, any ideas as to what it could be binding on?  The yellow plastic cable guide at the top basically touches the glass and i cant seem to move it away.  Tried using a piece of felt there but that came off after a few runs.  

    Welcome any suggestions.  Thanks

    interesting this as the D/S does very similar in the 16v

    i know i brought a couple of sets of window rollers in the group buy years ago but ive not been able to find them

  8. afternoon all

    good news!

    having received another pm about looms we are up to 4 people so ive contacted Zak & he is happy to do another run.

    as per previous runs, he works offshore & sometimes for long periods so they will be done as soon as time & work allows.

    similar to the previous buys we will set a minimum quantity, once that is hit we will ask people for deposits & then final balance will be due once they are made & ready to ship

    could i please politely request that people only put their name down if they are certain they want a loom & are happy with the terms - unfortunately on the last run we had a couple of people who put their name down but then did not reply to any contact messages

    i will start to form a list once we have a bit more interest

    Think I may be in a similar position to you, seem to have plenty of moisture in the car at the moment. No big puddles fortunately, but there's always a lot of condensation on the interior of the windscreen and rear window. So much so it had frozen in drips the other day. 

    My hunch is that it is the sunroof as it can't be vast quantities of moisture getting in because the carpets aren't soaked (although they do feel a bit damp), but I suppose I will have to start getting trim off.

    Have you fixed the issue on yours?

    hi m8

    do you have any dehumidifiers in there?

    before i sold the 16v a few weeks ago i was having to wipe drips off the rear & front windscreen even with 2 dehumidifiers in there - as such it could just be heavy condensation rather water ingress

    the 16v is water tight too as id checked sunroof drains & also reskinned the door membranes

  10. ive just checked with my m8 who sold them - they went for £1k last year so yeah i would agree that they are over priced

    out of interest, what kind of size spacers or bolt on adaptors would you use to get the size & offset to fit?

    ive got some 16" modena's in a 7j +41 & 8j +51 & need to figure out how to get them to fit

    They were like this a bit when I ordered mine. 5 or 6 months before delivery from enquiry. They are very busy, just have to keep at it. 

    thanks for the input shaun

    im in no rush so will persevere

    Well, about 5 weeks ago I contacted HiSpec and since, I sent 4 emails and none of them have been replied. I even emailed the chap Shaun dealt with twice. Holidays have been over for a while now. I don't understand why a company would not reply to a customer who wants to buy their products? Anyway, thank you for suggesting I was definitely interested but now I guess it will be time to find an alternative... 


    im the same - i emailed them at the start of the Jan about some for the mini & still no reply

    i did speak to the receptionist or whoever it was & she said there was a wait of about 2 weeks for email enquiries - im not sure why they take so long but im going to call them again this week.

    they were certainly not like this when i brought the calipers for the VR6 & i am sharing the disappointment

    Right Ive got quite a lot of corrado parts left - I just need to split the mk2 parts from the corrado parts. Im keeping my storage  boxes as paid quite a lot for them. So boxes will be tipped into your van or a good sized  boot . 

    A van would be preferable for collection. 

    Based in Sutton Coldfield. 


    Who wants it all free . 


    First to say on post gets it - no shipping its collection only and you take the whole lot not pick and choose. 





    do you think i would get it all in to a golf estate m8?

    Thanks, no worries.

    ive checked old posts on my build thread & the signatures have gone from the old ones as well

    maybe it was a feature we couldnt carry over when the site went to the newer version & different servers, similar to how we lost old pics etc

    Thanks, yes strange to be back! 😆

    Yeah really pleased with it, better than I expected, needs a full service soon, then should run really sweet!

    Yes still own Trimsport (10 years this year) No plans to do the carbon again, it was a nightmare last time and think we barely broke even. Best bet is James at SpoonFedTuning in the USA, I was out with him in California last year, so can help if needed.

    sounds good, i hope it goes as planned

    thanks, i understand the carbon hadnt gone as expect.

    i was lucky enough to grab an LWS design carbon bonnet which had never been fitted but i know they went through similar issues

    hmmm spoonfed - ok thanks - i have a niggle that they dont like shipping to the UK though.  im pretty sure that company name has been floated around on here a fair few times.  i may be wrong but i also dont want to say anything derogatory if he is a friend of yours
