  3. Well seeing as you are only a stones throw away from me you could collect it for £45 :)
  4. As the title says a used Bentley Official Factory Repair Manual (big yellow one) in fairly good condition and only a few oily finger printed pages. £70 on Amazon at the moment so yours for £50 posted.
  5. From memory -1.1 is the normal setting for a standard car so tbh I would go for that or -1 if your car is lowered.
  6. http://www.facebook.com/ls3photos One of my work colleagues has been running around the country side taking a lot of pics of Supercars. If your into your high cost horsepower it might be worth a look.
  7. If the clips are all intact I'll have the airbox pls. Can you post it?
  8. Spotted green valver sitting in Ashton car repairs nr Leighton Buzzard.
  9. Hi Dan I will deffo take the Passenger headlight can you give me a price posted please.
  10. I would reckon that with all the money I have spent on my Corrado I could have bought at least another Corrado but that would mean I would now be doubly skint instead :)
  11. I also thought they looked a bit on the small side when mine arrived today. Mind you they might be the right length now I look at them again, are we supposed to put our own bends into them when fitting?
  12. I'd be up for a go as long as we have instructors and tiered driver levels. Rockingham, Bedford airdrome or Brands Hatch spring to mind.
  13. On the look out for a passenger side head lamp casing with that has the mounting clips intact as they are prone to cracking as mine have. Would consider a complete headlamp as long as it's not a silly price as I don't need the glass or innards.
  14. Having been inspired by the level of quality cars at yesterdays national day I have found myself nosing around various Corrado related websites today :) I came across these on the not always that reasonably priced ARZ site - http://www.arz-tuning.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p4568_Trim-Screw-Cap-for-Corrado-Gauge-Cluster---right-side.html. Mine are missing somewhere in the mess that is my garage (possibly the shed) so I ordered a set along with some other bits to make the postage worthwhile. Hopefully they are as good as OEM but anything is better than the sight of two self tappers.
  15. Hi Tom are the doors still for sale and if so have you any pics?
  16. No idea on labour costs but it's not really too hard to do your self with a few tools and a single user bleeding kit.
  17. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, thanks to all that helped to arrange and to Wendy for directing us when we came in the wrong gate :)
  18. Funds have been sent - cheers for organising Fla
  19. I knew that extra shredded wheat this morning was a good idea :) In fact I would like one in carbon, polished ally or stainless steel tbh
  20. Surely the fact it was on the front cover of practical classics (or whichever one it was) this month means that's it has now qualified?
  21. Well I have been out for a proper 10 mile test drive this morning and the noise has gone so that's good news. Whilst looking for the "odd noise" location I also located a very slight blow from the exhaust to cat join which I have also sorted - must be Pimms O'clock by now :)
