Greatest FWD ever & ECOTY 1998

BMW update: it demanded a litre of oil on the way down to Cornwall so I stopped at the next services and topped up. Seemed happier on the F1 Asymmetric 3s than on the original Bridgestone run-flats or the Nokian winters, and was quite happy to sit at 3-figure speeds while still doing ~30mpg. I shall miss it.

I still don't understand why you sold it. :?

Because I've got a new car on the way of course. I never keep a car more than 2 years and I'll have had it 18 months.

Grown Up Golf

Reading the history folder I see that as well as the remap and Miltek, it got a pipercross panel filter at AMD. So I think I'll hold off the induction kit and pull that out and give it a clean - if it's still there.

Ordered a fitting kit and facia so I can put a proper stereo in.
Ordered some LED sidelights.
Booked it in for a Major service at VW.

The Evo forum really is a shadow of its former self. I remember when the internet was for the elite and now they seem to let any spastic on.

IaFG Supercharged Muppet Division

Service and MOT today on the M5. Oil top up, rear diff oil change, filter change and video of underside - total of £54 thanks to the service pack. And it's clean for the first time this month!

Eta: it may cost me £69k though! :lol:

Copied from the other running reports thread:

Oh, go on then, seeing as it's been a while.

Swift (racecar) - the seemingly sisyphean task of keeping it running and competitive continues. Just replaced one front corner after some kind soul wiped it off in the last race (upright smashed, two bent wishbones, bent pushrod, damaged bodywork). Lots of fun and games pressing bearings, and chasing tiny (i.e. fractions of a mm) bits of slack in the system. Recent upgrades have included wider spacers at the front (to increase the front track by 10mm), a new airbox to properly seal to the engine cover (to lower intake temps), various set-up changes (moving some ballast to the nose, reducing rake, decreasing front camber etc), and a new seat for me (made, as always, from expanding foam).

Clio - the little frenchy soldiers on. I'm still meaning to do something about the excessively noisy exhaust (made by me last year from an ex-racer's straight through system i picked up cheap, plus a generic silencer from ebay). There's a trackrod end on its way as well, but I'll get round to it in due course.

Jag - mostly still doing its executive wafting thing and trailer towing duties as intended. Recently had a little electronic gremlin to do with the brake switch/cruise control, which was swiftly bodged by pulling the cruise wire out (I never use it anyway). Again, there's a damper bush starting to make noise that I'll get round to when there aren't more pressing jobs (no pun intended).

TVR - Freshly MOT'd and all ready for some summer action. Just changed the starter motor (three bloody times!), and plan on giving the wishbones a little tidy up over the next few days (some of the previous powdercoating is peeling). Oh, and there's a hose to the thermostat that's weeping very slightly that could do with a bit of attention. It's due a big service this year (including adjusting tappets). I might treat it to a new set of balanced injectors at the same time.

Westie - A few bits of fun and games with this one recently. A few weeks ago, I switched over to a lithium battery, and in a totally unrelated incident the alternator failed, causing a dead short. Suffice to say, lithium batteries go up a treat when you short them! The result was lots of head scratching and the entire wiring loom stripped out and inspected before I finally got the source of the problem diagnosed. All back together now. Around the happier upgrady mods, the new flat floor and diffuser are now on (both made by my own fair hand from sheet ali), new carbon bits (front splitter, canards, wheel arch vents) are nearly finished and will be going on next week some time. Nitrous system is all complete and ready to go on (including new piggyback ecu for tighter control), but I've got some work to do to bring the engine bay temps down (up thanks to the new flat floor) before it's safe to install a nitrous bottle in there.

Chief Wheel and Cake Monkey - Strong Broo Racing

Two years after the passenger side window regulator rollers failed, the drivers side ones have failed. I've ordered replacements for the princely sum of £1.99 and I now look forward to cutting my hands to shreds inside the door in the near future.

MOT for porsche coming up... abs light is on , pretty sure its just a sensor so will investigate this weekend

Yeah but people think it's always just a sensor, in the same way borked a/c is "just a regas" :lol:

Much blasphemy ensued, and some menace, which I stopped by dismounting and opening the carriage door, and intimating an intention of mending the road with his immediate remains, if he did not hold his tongue. He held it.

That's all the TT needed, scary :shock: The hub failed though and needed replacing, ying and yang etc.

SOme mouth breathing scum has hit the front right of the 500e, bumper scuff and plastic insert scuff, it's why it came off the road before, 3 separate bumps from troglodites in the space of a few weeks.

I may leave flash in the car with the window down if it keeps happening. Poor thing is starting to look tatty now.

Dave!

Keep on top of it Dave!, or it's a slippery slope with these older cars.

I'm quite upset that this thread has been deleted. :(

So am I, mik. That's why I started this new thread so I'd encourage people to post there now.

Light come on after you are rolling so has to be a sensor or abs ring . Im not just blindly optimistic

Morgan Aero 8 was serviced the other day, nothing dramatic to report other than the comment was that it was "due a good service". Turns out it has a K'N panel filter (needing a good clean) and the MAF was quite crappy as well....runs well.
Had the magnesium wheels checked for cracks and all the rod ends and rose joints are still good.

Roll on another 5000 miles in 2016.

MX5 will be on track this weekend, not me mind as lent to a friend, interesting to get others feedback on it.
