Re: Capri prices

From where I'm looking there are far too many people paying out ludicrous amounts of money for what are at best mediocre cars. They pile in without doing the proper research and more often than not end up investing in a money pit. People see this and they think there car is worth thousands more tha...

Re: The one that started it all

Do you know what the registration of your car was? Sometimes people have posted on forums and facebook and have managed to find their cars still going.

What a lovely burble. And the smoke from the pipes on a cold day are a sight to behold.

Re: MOT's extended for six months

Mine ran out on the 27th so luckily i had booked it in on that day to get it tested. I doubt i would have gotten away with the extra 6 months extension.

Black is very difficult to keep clean! Especially when unattended for a few days!

Re: The Chinese coronavirus

Initial reports suggested 3 weeks, then 2. If its down to a week then its going to be quite a rollercoaster week ahead. It will be a challenging week ahead, that's for sure. Although I may have got that particular figure wrong - it seems the trend for confirmed cases in the UK is around 14 days beh...

Re: The Chinese coronavirus

Interestingly, China appear to be containing the crisis much better than the Europeans. China has seen 81,054 confirmed cases out of a population of 1.379 billion, compared with Italy who have had 59,138 cases and a population of less than 60 million. However, China currently has only 5,549 confirm...

Re: Color for my late father's car

I had my car painted 4 years ago and originally it was black. It was a laser when I started modifying my car and there were plenty about. Now they are becoming rarer so people tend to stick to originality. I had it painted a modern colour as i plan to keep the car for many years to come and resale v...

Re: Mk2 Grill wanted

There are currently five for sale on Ebay, ranging from £50 to £150. :goodluck: Andrew. They aren't as wanted as they previously were. They were commanding daft prices at one time. Lol some might consider that an average of £100 is still a daft price! In my opinion. I agree. Still remember my dad p...

Re: Color for my late father's car

I would say Highland Green as well. This will also keep its value more than the other colours due to its originality and especially if you decide to part with it in the future.

Re: Mk2 Grill wanted

I have one on my mk2 but there is a slight crack in the middle top as it appears somebody may have tried prising it in a previous life. I have an american mk2 grille to fit on but that has the Capri logo in the centre missing. Cost me nearly double to buy and ship over. Sometimes wish i hadnt bother...

Re: The Chinese coronavirus

My wife works at the local asda and the shelves are being stripped bare. She doesnt even get a chance to get anything, never mind bulk buy. The local shops are now charging higher prices but that could simply be down to the chain being overcharged from the initial suppliers. Its going to get a lot w...
