  1. It is the campaign and its up for 40k
  2. Dont knock it Rob, not many tradesmen left now, im a bricklayer 30 odd years experience, wet trades are few and far between now so moneys good as it should be, as you said its a young mans job, im 51 and starting to struggle putting my socks on in the morning ha ha, im sure you know what i mean!! not many youngsters seem to want to do the job now, being self employed doesnt help.
  3. Nice to see valver prices up there too, will it fetch the money ?? A good investment im sure
  4. Try this, https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi9zPvg3NLWAhWCahoKHW5ZA4kQFggoMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fchrome.google.com%2Fwebstore%2Fdetail%2Ffix-embedded-photobucket%2Fcdngpnpgjighldbibdgpddaieidknhlf%3Fhl%3Den&usg=AOvVaw3J3UzD4rQA8eFLsiDAizLo
  5. replace everything while you are there as unless it has been replaced recently it will be bolloxed, do not use cheap top mounts as they will knock within weeks, i found out the hard way with our fabia|| euro car part cheapies, crap.. you only gain benefits from replacing all suspension bushes when changing the shocks
  6. Do you still have the power steering pump? if so how much posted please
  7. sorry to hear this mate, i would be trailering the car back and getting my money back at this stage
  8. I take it you havent had it long, how has this fault happened
  9. I remember that exact feeling, ha ha, i must be getting old, as that put a smile on my face
  10. I think they are worth it if you are an enthusiast and willing to keep one for a long while as prices slowly seem to be rising as they are getting rarer, the americans seem to love them too, lots of videos appearing on you tube of some really fantastic cars lately. nice to see valvers on the way up too. some early ones in fantastic condition with low mileage have fetched over 5k on autotrader and ebay, maybe buyers have gone for valvers over VRs after struggling to find a VR in good enough condition, after all why should raddos be worth any less than old mk1 astras or escorts apart from availability
  11. These engines suffer from oil starvation, the oil pick up pipe causes it, common problem with the 18t engine, sump off and replace the pick up pipe if this is the problem
  12. Try unicorn, they remapped my 225 TT and it made 270 bhp, really smooth delivery and ran smooth https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiPmZX46cXVAhWrB8AKHXS2ANUQFggpMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.unicornmotordevelopments.com%2F&usg=AFQjCNET8-e8If3ubSHBLArfCEsESmNViw
