Re: FS; Early 216 GSi

Been for sale for absolutely ages. Not sure why. I’d say the beige interior and auto box are turn offs. They are for me, not my cup of tea.

Re: BL Day at Peterborough is no more

Of late the weather could be very wet in May or June! It should be obvious given some thought, that if it's been raining cats & dogs all the previous week that Crofton Park will be water logged surely? I think it's more important to celebrate the cars and the clubs that help to keep them on the roa...

BL Day at Peterborough is no more

According to their FB Page, the show at Nene Park in Peterborough has been pulled.

Was a good show in years gone by but has been on the wane for a couple of years now.

Re: Which things will kill our cars? Common faults?

As for people wanting “lesser” models, I’ve found that all R8 variants are quite sought after. Some people like the lesser specced models and don’t dismiss them.

LED Bulbs

Has anyone has any success using LED bulbs in their cars, for either front or rear illumination?
