Re: Cotswold AllSorts Thursday 16th August at 7.00pm Mids,Worcester, Tewkesbury, Brum, Bristol,

The fault im getting is as follows: P0076: Intake Valve Control Solenoid Circuit Low (Bank 1) However I'm inclined to think it's the crank sensor because last time she broke down the car behaved exactly the same. Allowed to cool down she starts fine but revs erratically and dies. I have a spare and...

Re: Meister R coilovers

Thanks for your replies guys, the issue is with the structure of our rear suspension, the dumper just hitting the air cup, when it's required to go further inside the top mount, so I'll need to deal with the air cup guys now, as they were promising me that it will fit when I was asking them several...

Weather is poor, but it's the fog that's done it. #-o

Just trying to find somewhere more local to eat.

Re: Meister R coilovers

My Meisters were fitted at Rotary Revs and there was no high ride height issue when the car was lowered. The are firm but should certainly not be solid as you have said your rears are. The standard springs are not really hard, Ranjan commented that my springs could do with being stiffer as the car w...

Re: Help with side decals

A mixture of a smidgen of washing up liquid in a dish of water makes the vinyls easily moveable for alignment. Check the instructions that came with them to see if yours are suitable for this wet application method.

Re: Meister R coilovers

You don't have the part 11 on the Meisters. If the air guys said there were issues with the rears why proceed and try to fit them. The guys fitting these parts don't seem to understand how to bolt suspension together. Also on the rear I don't think you need to undo anything except the shock absorber...

Re: ^^^TRACKDAY, Mallory Park (Leics): Thursday 9th Aug^^^

Typically I have to top up a quarter of a litre every second session, so a litre in a day is easy enough for me too. Your old engine appears to have not been working correctly ;) What is even more strange though is that its the OMP and oil injectors etc from the old engine. Seems like its now norma...
