Re: What Windcreen Tint?

Hi everyone, The windscreen has just gone bang on my 216GSi. There was an unseen stone chip (hidden by the steering wheel) which didn’t like heat on the inside in this weather! :oops It’s not done badly for nearly 30 years I guess.... Anyway, does anyone know what tint is on these? It’s definitely ...

Re: R8 digital clock replacement

Thanks for the tips everyone!

There’s nothing showing, but I can actually see the time if I shine a torch directly on it. Looks like it’s a bulb then, which is good news - I wouldn’t have known to shine a light on it!

Another job for a dry day...... :)

Re: R8 digital clock replacement

It's very simple actually. Just slide a flat but not sharp bladed object (something like a plastic spreader you get with tile grout) behind the wood trim at the curved end near the passenger door and gently prize it out. It is held in by several metal spring clips. The clock is fixed to the wood by...

R8 digital clock replacement

Hi everyone, Having blown the head on my 416GSi auto, I have replaced it with a nice 216GSi auto (416 will be for sale shortly). Annoyingly the clock isn’t working on the new one, but was perfect on the old car. I have hunted around but can’t find a guide to repairing or replacing the digital clock....

Selling good cars at a any price is hard at the moment so expect offers around the 2-300 mark. If it’s got a short not put it through just to increase your chances.
Thanks, yes it’s got a brand new MOT, up to 13/10/21 now. Hopefully £60 well spent, but we’ll see later.....

Re: Value for 416GSi?

How much do you want for it? Where are you? Hi - I’ll do a proper advert for it, with decent photos etc next week. I was trying to establish roughly what it should be worth via this thread. It’s looking like it will be advertised somewhere about £450, with new MOT & back on its original steel wheel...

Re: Value for 416GSi?

Before writing it off, find out what is actually wrong with it instead of guessing. Water or condensension is a normal byproduct of the combustion process, especially from cold. A rough idle can be lot's of things, fouled injectors or failing or incorrectly specced spark plugs for example. I wouldn...

Re: Value for 416GSi?

HGF on a D-series is unusual and unfortunate.... A replacement engine might be worth considering but you might not find one with the miles of yours. With this problem it probably worth only a quite small number of £hundreds :sad Thanks John. Yes that’s what I thought - there’s one with a similar pr...

Value for 416GSi?

I apologise in advance, as I hate these posts too, but I really need a bit of help here! My 416GSi auto is unfortunately going to have to move on to pastures new. I really don’t know what sort of price to ask, and I’m hoping there will be some sensible thoughts in here (I can’t deal with the Faceboo...
