Re: LED 3rd brake light

Would that be an easy job and what resistance would normally be needed to prevent ABS faults occurring?

LED 3rd brake light

Hi all, Just wondering if any MX5 parts are compatible with our Rx8's? In particular I'm looking for an LED 3rd brake light to match the R3 style and came across this one https://www.ilmotorsport.de/shop/productpics/NB0-1522/2/380/380/MX-5-Clear-Brake-light-with-LED-s-2.jpg available at https://www....

Double engine, gearbox & differential oil change. I've als...

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY,Bedford Autodrome Sat 1st Dec @SOLD OUT^^^

For a first track day, I can highly recommend Bedford. So much space if you lose it (fortunately I didn't, but saw many spinners). I need another track day now!!! Good to catch up with people and meet other club members. Shame MrsP unfortunately managed to fall last night and fracture her left hand,...

Neighbours car...Anybody know what this part is?

Hi all, Not technically "my" other car, more like the neighbours. The neighbours son noticed a part had dropped on the side of the car... His father is away for a few weeks... It's a Seat Alhambra 59 plate. The below pictures are from under the passenger side rear doors.. From side: https://i.imgur....

Just to confirm that myself and Gerrie are booked in with a garage and some tuition apiece.
