Look forward t...

Re: volume control not working.

First question is-does it have the original head unit or is an aftermarket one fitted?

Re: New R8 Rover 200 book to be published in April 2021

Mine arrived this morning after ordering it from Amazon a couple of days ago. Looks great on an initial flick through; nice to have something to get stuck into over coffee on my break at work.

Re: Looking at a MG 6 or MG 3? edit bought a mg 3 lux!

My friend has just bought a 70 plate MG3 from a dealer to replace her ageing Yaris, I went with her for the test drive and the deal. I didn't have a chance to drive myself, but I was hugely impressed with the interior layout, ride quality and the build of the car considering the price. Looking forwa...

Re: Club Member Discount with XPart

Could one of the "several projects" perhaps be online access to an EPC, given that Rimmer's are stripping NLA's from their web version? But great news that they've formed an active link with the Club! Great idea! It is and we're working on it :wink3 Don't suppose there's any more news of this John?...

Re: New 'Classic.Retro.Modern.' magazine launches July 2021

If they wanted to do a feature on the R8 (maybe a group test of all the cars similar to what Top Gear etc did in the 90’s?) I’d be happy to volunteer mine-hopefully with the mileage being what it is it would give the best feeling as to how the cars felt when brand new! That's also a very good sugge...

Re: Luton Festival of Transport, Sunday 27th June. CLUB STAND!

Any more for this? Make sure you book a 'club' ticket so that you get directed straight to our stand when you arrive. The online booking process did seem a bit long-winded (they wanted a photo of the car as well) but it all worked in the end. Or if you are paying on the gate, explain that you are o...

Re: Front discs

Sitting on the downstairs throne yesterday reading a copy of Practical Classics :cool and my eyes alighted on a piece about servicing brakes. They actually advise against using silicone grease on the pins sliders, instead use either Copper Slip or this XP product pushed by Edd China, or an alternat...

Re: What's it worth

All depends on the specification & engine, plus how good the bodywork and interior are. These will also dictate if it would sell as an “enthusiast” sale for good money or if it will be more in “cheap car” territory.
