Just Plain Silly!

Crouchie, I'm trying to fit a Canadian manifold to my spare engine, as you've done. I'll be using the stock ECU when this engine eventually finds its way into the car, which means I'll be using the CA20e IAA valve thingy and IAC from the CA18ET (I think). I'm getting a bit hung up on what to connect...

CM 2020 what events are folk doing?

I'm still working it out. Aintree Ty Croes x 2 Harewood Curbs And then I need to find three more. Really want to do double Loton, but a holiday may get in the way. I can only manage eight at a pinch. It's a shame Blyton isn't on this year as it's an easy double to do. 1) Aintree 2/3) Ty Croes 4) Ha...

Recommended Tyres for 4X4

Belated update..... After much stroking of chin, I've ordered a set of Avon ZX7 XL (275/55/20) through Black Circles and they'll be fitted on Thursday. About £15 more on the total bill than Uniroyal RS3, but on the whole they get better reviews, mostly from Touareg drivers. Total bill £488 fitted/ba...

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

Just for completeness, a couple of the replacement reservoir. It sits on top of one of my 22mm master cylinders, which puts it a bit closer to the underside of the bonnet. 20200206_184651.jpg 20200206_184603.jpg I've also been busy fixing the trailer. I had a couple of brake lock ups, and found the ...

RS3 Tyres & 15" Wheels For Sale SS1

Bit of a bump and an update. The wheels/tyres are still for sale, but there's good news on the wheel that I thought was buckled. It isn't, but it does have a very minor bend in the lip where it made contact with the grass bank at Loton. The upshot is, that it can probably be used as it is without an...

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

A few more jobs ticked off. Replaced the brake fluid reservoir as it had cracked after coming into contact with the bonnet. I've raised the bonnet a few mm by packing out the catches, and I've cut out the offending chunk of bonnet underside. A quick check with the inspection camera confirmed the two...

Done mine too. I also got confirmation of my entry to Anglesey, and got the Aintree one a couple days ago. #spentaneffinfortunealready

Northern Ireland MOT Test Issue

I'm not entirely unlucky :lol: .When I've taken my daily to the VAG outfit I only get charged £35 for the MOT as part of the service. The cost of the servicing bit is another story though :roll:

Northern Ireland MOT Test Issue

I don't trust private garages that offer "cheap" MOT tests. ie. under £50. Local anecdotal evidence suggests that they often find and do work (unauthorised) that puts the bill up to compensate. I'm talking about alleged blown or worn coloured bulbs, bushings etc. (usually vastly over priced) that ke...
