Re: I'm hearing things

How metallic is the sound?

I had a similar thing, turned out it was a snapped spring. Easy to check!

Haven't popped in here for a while, and I like it! Was hoping someone would give the LM20 look a whirl. 8)

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Hehe, to be fair, this is why having an agreed value policy can be well worth it.

I didn't, hence the prolonged 'discussion' with them.
Though it does seem to have been with their engineer for evaluation for quite a while now.. :-k

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Thanks guys. :)

It's seemingly a long drawn out process with them at the moment. Still yet to agree a value.

Still checking for R3's every day. :D

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Thanks all, it's not a nice episode to go through, as many of us know only too well.

Dave, I'm still in negotiation with the insurers, so I may push a little harder on that front. There are definitely a few parts that I would like to keep on there!
I was insured through Adrian Flux as it happens.

Harry, your use of the Howl picture made me smile, and is entirely appropriate! =D>
Are you selling yours? ;) :lol:

As such, individuals have no chance.. I did try. :(

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Big update time. By now I had hoped it would be about having changed the front springs too, and maybe fitted some other bits, but fate had a different plan.. Last month I was involved in a car incident, which resulted in a Cat B. :( Bit of a freak accident, a few situations occurring all at the same...

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Anyone have any ideas where I could acquire a new set of these for front brakes?:

Mazda may do, but they may also charge an 'interesting' fee for them..

Never dull with this one.. :lol: After said mini service, Tuesday arrived at work with a near smoking front brake. Very carefully drove home without using brakes as much as safely possible. (Applied brake twice). No problem, and not too hot either. Whipped off the caliper, checked pins, cleaned and ...
