Re: The Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery: NEC Birmingham. Friday 27 to Sunday 29 March

No car to offer but a pair of hands. Very local so could bring equipment such as trolley jack axle stands, ramps etc.
Plus if we have electric I have an unwanted gift of a Tassimo that the club can have for beverages.
I can be available for all 4 days or a combination depending on other offers

Re: Dailying an R8 or 45

Utilise a R8 416Sli Tourer as my daily, average 9,000 per annum in this, average around 30mpg (so not the most economical). It has been used for a family holiday to Paris and over the past few weeks been back and forth between Birmingham and Fulham to facilitate daughters move to university. Can no...

Re: Low mileage 214SEI

Very well done, and knowing how Adrian looks after his cars it won't take much for concours condition. Glad to note that the non standard boom box has gone I’m extremely lucky I’ve had the opportunity to take on Adrian’s absolute honey of a 214SEI. Saw it at PoL and bugged him into letting it go. My...

Re: Speedometer

Resolved Thanks for the advice, don't know how but it had worked loose so a simple job Newer models, the speedo is controlled by the abs sensors as well. In this instance I’m reasonably confident it’s the electrical transducer on the top of the speed sensor. Ie the bit the speedo cable plugs into as...

Speedometer

Help!

Speedometer and mileometer have both packed up this morning. Everything else is working, so is it a fuse, cable or something else.
Anyone able to shine a light on this for me?
