Re: 216 GTI donor car

Any unique GTi parts would be worth harvesting - seats, doorcards, rear spoiler, spats, front bumper extension, anti-roll bars and alloys spring to mind Then there's all the usual R8 parts, such as the mirrors, radio, fuel relay, lights, front wings, fuel filler neck, front and rear subframes, rear...

Re: specialist rover garage

The big dealer garages only want cars that can be plugged into a computer that then tells them what to do - as Rover Revivals says, “employing monkeys”. That’s a bit of a lazy and unfair assumption in my book, sorry. Dealership level diagnostic gear does not simply “tell them what to do”; there’s s...
