  1. Is it worth me posting the ad here for laughs?
  2. Saw what looked to be a nice yaris last week, 5 door t sport, just as i was looking for, for my son. Description said 'you wont find better' and to be fair it looked very nice in the pics. Took some tools, a mirror and rags just to ensure everything was pukka. Well, within 30 seconds i thought i was looking at the wrong car. Didnt even need to take my tools out to check anything. Hopeless is an understatement. Engine bay was terrible, bumpers weren't lining up, rust in rear wheel arches with a dodgy patch up repair, faded and cracked paint, cabin was not clean, and then some black/blue smoke as he drove off. I could list loads of issues but it would just be tedious reading. I just find it a shame when sellers are less than honest with descriptions..

    mot fail on brakes

    Might help to put return springs on the calipers if they don't go back to the stop position
  5. wow, very clean! Get some more pics up
  6. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202106254237449?include-delivery-option=on&make=VOLKSWAGEN&model=CORRADO&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&radius=1501&postcode=ha63nq&page=1&modal=photos Looks like Kips car is for sale again.. 😞
  7. If you lift each side and spin the wheel by hand you might be able to identify the source.
  8. Those bonnet pins and lock look very nice!
  9. Old thread, would be good to where these cars are now. There was also coxylaads 24v 4wd with the golf dash or something along those lines but whether it got completed was another story
  10. Ive got one or two spare check valves. Send me your address and i'll pop one in the post to you
  11. Look well made. How much are these likely to be?
  12. Just wondering how people have routed their HT leads with a schrick. Mine sit under the manifold on each side but very close to the engine block. So they're not insulated from the heat from the engine. Any other solutions in use? Pics would be great. thanks Hasan
  13. thats oil temps you're talking about is it? 90 at motorway speeds is not bad tbh, in winter it will likely be lower. I had what i thought was a leak from the sump gasket. Turned out to the be the oil filter cap. In the meantime i had changed the oil filter housing seal (the '8' shaped one) and used a new sump gasket with some light gasket sealant. I think the lip of the sump catches any and all leaking oil
  14. Is there anything car-related you cant do, Graham?

    Luis's VR6

    really looks good. Great efforts in maintaining the standard. Yours is converted to OBD2 if i remember correctly - so your setup is likely similar to mine with the schrick. Did you also get cams in there? It'll be running beautifully no doubt. Enjoy!
