Fleur De Lys Show, Wakefield, Friday 6th July 2019

Howard and I went to the excellent Fleur De Lys show in Wakefield on Friday evening. Hundreds of cars there. There were a few R8’s there and a few other Rovers there too.

Re: Intermittent issue

Possible air leak? Have you checked the vacuum pipes?

Re: Low mileage 214SEI

One of my favourite R8’s on the scene!

NB - A 19,000 mile 214 SEi sold on eBay for £450 only a few months ago. Gutted I didn’t see the auction!

Re: Why does my wiper catch on the bonnet

I’ve had a few R8’s and only had the problem on the early models. Later M/N reg ones never had this issue.
