Re: 1997 200 Vi that will be de-MG'd soon

The ZR seats are from a facelift ZR, think they were standard on 160’s and an option on the lower specified cars.

Re: Rover Revivals Revival

Just spent hours hunting for a plastic part to no avail, so I gave up and called a friend of mine who 3D scanned the good one and just printed me one :scared Total cost was 1/4 the advertised price and took all of 15 mins start to finish. So yep, you guessed it! It’s on our shopping list. Going to ...

I'd recommend bringing your own food tomorrow or buying from any on-site tuck wagon as the socially distanced café is rather slow and may get busy :angel
Do we know how many food wagons there will be?

Re: R950 compatible CD changers

I say "upgrade"; what I actually mean is "take back to standard-ish", as it's got an aftermarket unit at the moment. The alternative is to fit something like a Blaupunkt Bremen, which gives modern functionality but a 90's look. https://www.classiccarstereo.co.uk/images/detailed/1/Blaupunkt-Bremen-SQ...

Re: R950 compatible CD changers

Blimey Johnny. That’s a pretty comprehensive reply, thanks!

Considering upgrading the head unit in my car but wouldn’t mind keeping it OEM, hence the question.

Re: Hello!

Looking at the registration number, I am sure it will GROw on you. Supplied by Dunham & Haines Leighton Buzzard or possibly the Luton branch. I remember them well. The Luton branch was one of the dealers (the other being Diamond in Hatfield) my parents bought their cars from. It’s been a while sinc...

I think I am just going to swap the alternator and have a go at doing it myself. Never swapped one before. Anything to look out for?
Plenty of releasing agent on the adjuster bolt below the alternator!

Re: Social Isolation jobs list on the R3 Vi

The keys are a couple of quid in Halfords and make the job ten times easier with less likelihood of damaging anything.
