Re: Pride of Longbridge 18th April 2020

Hmmm it’s 4 weeks away yet. A lot could have changed by then. The situation may be better in 3 weeks. Or is that wishful thinking?

Re: H plate Rover 216Gti - Leak in footwell

Does it have a sunroof? If so you should see the drain holes when the sunroof is extended back. Not sure how best to clear them though. Perhaps a long wire or an air hose.

What was it?
A dead cell in the battery
I’ve just had to order a new battery for my Tourer as my other one died in the cold weather. I went for an upgraded Bosch one that has 15% better cold starting capacity and supposedly withstands longer periods out of use.... we shall see.

Re: Facebook Sales page created for this club

But there are already so many out there, I run one myself. I just don’t think the club needed it. I await being corrected. Many people contact the club to sell cars or parts. Up until now the advice has been "please post on our Facebook page and on our forum" but in order to separate out cars/parts...

Re: Facebook Sales page created for this club

I think it is difficult for people to post on a FB “Page”. A “group” is more interactive and easier to post on. There is already a Rover R8 Sales group with over 1,000 members: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2104271929791970/?ref=share Rover 200/25/Streetwise sales group: https://www.facebook.com/g...

Re: Facebook Sales page created for this club

Is this page for the Club to sell parts or individuals to sell parts?

Re: Putting £ in

I think I did work out my BRM but thankfully I've repressed that memory..... Hahaha. I have a 420gsi tourer that I've spent £500 buying and delivery to mine then I've spent another £500 on parts..... So far..... I think up to another grand might go in to it but it is a full rebuild, so God knows......
