my new 620 ti project

#1 Post by Fatdave » Thu May 26, 2011 9:24 pm

after 3 years its time to move on from my coupe and onto a new project. i was searching for a good turbo R8 but nothing really took my fancy. my other half spotted a 620 ti and i said i didnt really want one of those but i looked at the pics anyway. i actually quite liked it so went to have a look and it was much better than expected and a credit to the previous owner. so im now the owner of a 620 ti. :D

i'll get some pics up of the car soon but in the mean time here are some new purchases ive already made. good quality tailored mats, front strut brace, rear strut brace and stainless water pipe. mr postman should be knocking at my door very soon with more bits too.

got a few more items the other day for the ti. stainless plug cover, stainless bolts for the engine bay, manual boost controller and a forge dump valve. i know some people think dump valves are a bit chavy but they do put a smile on my face.

i will put some pics of the car up soon when ive had the chance to give it a good going over. all my attention has been focused on the coupe getting it ready for sale .

Nice, and glad to see it's not let the 600 down by fully retracting the aerial! :laughing2

Sometimes fixable by removing the top collar on the aerial, then switching the radio on, as the mast rises, it will eventually spit the mast out, along with some toothed plastic. If the plastic gears are ok, push it back down as far as you can, then get the radio switched off, feed the mast back in, and hopefully it should fully retract. Give the mast a good clean while it's out too.

If it's really worn

typical. theres a few nice ones turned up since i bought the the 620 but im happy enough with what ive got. if it hadnt been for the lack of r8 turbos i would have never given a ti a chance but glad i did.
