Re: 216 GTI donor car

Any unique GTi parts would be worth harvesting - seats, doorcards, rear spoiler, spats, front bumper extension, anti-roll bars and alloys spring to mind Then there's all the usual R8 parts, such as the mirrors, radio, fuel relay, lights, front wings, fuel filler neck, front and rear subframes, rear ...

Re: Club Member Discount with XPart

They still don't answer any parts enquiries using the response form on the website. Tried a few times over the past months. Not sure if I'd have more success with a direct e-mail. I wonder if there's a plan to restore anything like the old system when they've sorted themselves out? And what's happe...

FBHVC position on ban on sale of new cars with IC engines from 2030

The recent announcement of the pull forward of the ban on the sale of new IC-only (ie petrol and diesel) powered passenger cars from 2035 to 2030 is unlikely to have been missed but here is the FHBVC's statement on it https://www.fbhvc.co.uk/news/article/fbhvc-position-on-government-ban-on-sale-of-n...

WTD: Rover 200 GSI/GTI/Coupe for film shoot in Essex, Nov 28th

The shoot will be taking place in Essex (Rayleigh/ Southend-On-sea) on the Saturday 28th of November. We're looking for an o...

Re: Blower/heater issue
