Re: Sportex exhaust for mk3 2.8i v6

I had several clearance issues on the Sportex on my 2.8 but that was down to the way it was fitted by the PO. A bit of time spent slackening off clamps then carefully rotating and moving each part in turn met with complete success. I eventually did the same thing and solved the problem I had with t...

Re: Sportex exhaust for mk3 2.8i v6

I think some people have problems with sportex and some don't - I had an issue with one of mine but the second one was fine (granted it was a pinto not a 2.8 though). I almost get the feeling that they're just made in batches and some are fine and others aren't?

Makes no sense that you can hire one and drive one, but you can't own one privately and do the exact same thing...?? Love a well thought through government policy.... :sarcasmalert:
My wife is going to buy one..................then rent it out to me ;)

Re: Capri Interior (Brown cloth)

They look like the seats from my GL - not sure about the door cards as mine don't have speaker holes in the door cards

Re: There is good news about SUV'S

I thought the 'good news about SUV's' was that they are about to be banned! Horrid things. I had a MK4 Golf as a daily for around 16 years and over 100,000 miles, was a great car to be honest. My dad had a Mk4 diesel TDi Golf for about 6/7 years and he put 160k+ miles on it and was great to be fair...

Re: White Goods

It is a shame - in a strange way - that nice flashy cars have become too easy to own. I've grown up with it so I've become used to it but anyone can get more or less any car they want on finance these days and I can imagine it doesn't quite give the satisfaction when you can finally afford to buy on...

Re: Recaro seat runners

The recaro seats unlike the others have some brackets that bolt on to the bottom of the seat and connect to the runners that attach to the floor - have you checked these as well? Only other thing I can think of that would make the seats feel loose

Re: Sunroof Handle

When I put the handle on it still worked fine that wasn't an issue, but the screw I had taken out of my original one wasn't long enough to fit the 'un-notched' one into place. Also, the plastic surround for the handle didn't fit in so well either because as Andrew says the plastic surround has the l...

Re: Sunroof Handle

Glad you got it sorted eventually Danny :) I would be really annoyed if I broke mine, as it's not a neccesity to open it really! The real lesson here should be "don't you even dare think about opening your sunroof" :lol: I've added that to my account signature so I never forget :lol: :lol:

Well after fitting mine yesterday (eventually figured it out!) I have noticed that mine is all over the place and will need to be taken out and sorted properly - won't be using that ever again then!! :lol: Something I didn't know and not sure if anyone else does as I've not seen it mentioned before ...

Re: VERY RARE CAPRI REAR PANEL & EXPENSIVE????

How would one tell? If there is a Ford stamp somewhere on it I would guess would be the tell tale sign but the pictures aren't high enough quality to zoom in on and check - shame it doesn't fit my GL going by the description ;)

Thanks for the link Nick, I was highest bidder on that up to £45 but was loathed to pay any more - think I have just about sorted one for now so thanks for the replies guys!
