Reason for asking is that I am thinking of upgrading my 1998 coupe brakes and the VVC wheels currently on it wont allow an upgra...

Re: Doors Plastic Sheeting

Doors Plastic Sheeting

Hi all i am planning on upgrading my standard speakers in my coupe.
The doors still have the plastic sheeting between the door and card.

I am intending putting sound proof matting on the doors - should I remove the sheeting?

Thanks

Coupe steering rack

Hi guys hope you can help. I have recently had the PAS pump replaced on my S reg 1600 coupe, but if you rock the steering wheel whilst stationary it almost sounds like its groaning a bit. IS this a sign the rack is on the way out? If so Rimmers reckon QEB000250E is the part but it seems damn expensi...
