I'm just surprised we dont see more of this, maybe leaky engines and gearboxes are useful after all .
We do see more of this, it’s a well known weak point - I had a failure on a GTC about 10 years ago!

This is why QRG stock repair plates and you’ll find loads of threads on here about them.

Advice needed on noise from new Spax damper and mounting

Are you sure the 830 is a front damper? A quick google seems to show it listed as rear.

Either way, drop Tony Shakeshaft (Spax tech director and ex GTE owner) an email.

Ultra Low Emission Zone

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Saw an Alfa 4c on the way back from the workshop today and IMHO white is not the best colour for it :D

Ultra Low Emission Zone

If there’s no levels, it’s not going to pass - the “emission standards” will be Euro V or VI as per the rest of Europe. As unfortunate as it is for people that live inside the ULEZ, it’ll just be accepted a few years after implementation and your daily driver will be compliant. Those that can afford...

It doesn’t prevent you from looking at finished listings, it’s a recent change that takes you to a live listing - that it thinks is similar (which often isn’t remotely similar!). If you press the hyperlinked word “listing” when it says “The listing you’re looking for is no longer available. Check ou...
