Other than the straights I'd say it's spot on
I have options for the wheels once the bigger MG front brakes come off. They spoil the brake pedal feel too :D

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

I've been lucky enough to be able to buy a rare R3 200 Vi. I picked it up today and it's even better than expected :clapping I knew it was good but I had my first long'ish drive in it to bring it home and it almost felt new, not 23 years old! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49444969807_4f8a66f19...

Pride of Longbridge 18th April 2020

As usual, and weather permitting, this event will take place in Cofton Park on Saturday April 18th.

We had well over 100 club cars there last year :cool

More details to follow but an idea of numbers would be good for planning purposes...

Do we know if parts ordered directly are posted out or for collection from the Xpart dealers?

I suspect it is direct delivery only at present until the network are set up.
They'll post direct to you

Re: An amazing colour restorer (plastic, metal etc...)

Autoglym bumper gel has been the choice so far after (far from) exhaustive comparative testing on a test bumper at the Resto show a few years ago. It lasts well too.

Please keep us updated on how this one lasts :D

I suspect RND106010 is a production number for a damper & spring assembly and is not sold like that as a spare part . Rimmers list only includes springs or dampers , but not the complete assembly
Pretty sure you're correct :clapping

Re: Gearbox advice 220 turbo

They're may be more info available in the Rover Coupe Owners Club forum as a higher proportion of their cars are Turbos.

Good luck!

At the moment there is no plan to run a specific R8 4-door event as it would be too close in content and timing to the R8 launch event we can last year. We will be including the 400 in...
