Thanks for all the suggestions. Think I'll go with the Autoglym spray on wax as can't afford to burn £40 on the posh stuff right now.

Bird poop: What a load of s#*t!

So I've been slacking off on keeping my car clean lately, and a few birds had left their marks. When I finally cleaned the car yesterday, to my horror I found that they had left marks in the lacquer. Most were so bad I actually had to rub the spots down with wet and dry and buff them out with rubbin...

Re: No matter how carefull and protective of ur car !

How does your front spoiler attach? I have an RGA one and I can't see any way to attach it other than drilling holes in the bodywork and using rivets.

Re: That late evening/ night drive

Is yours a 2.8 or a 3.0? Because burnouts in anything less are pretty much impossible without a wet road lol

Re: starter motor

It's good this zombie thread came back, as it's given me a possible diagnosis for an intermittent problem I keep having when starting mine. For some reason, in hot weather (never does this in the winter) the car just won't start. I hear a little click (which thanks to this thread I've discovered is ...

Re: No matter how carefull and protective of ur car !

Looks great! Hope mine comes out as nice as that when they do it. Thanks everyone, yeah I'm glad the insurance decided to rule in my favour because at the time due to all the hubbub I forgot to get more than a couple of photos, so I was worried they'd say that there wasn't enough evidence, but since...

Re: No matter how carefull and protective of ur car !

Had the same thing happen to me. I parked up next to somebody last October, baring in mind I had only just restored the car for a second time after some moron pulled out Infront of me at a roundabout in October the year prior, so hadn't been back on the road for a whole year yet, and this idiot next...

Re: Brake shoes

Only the 1.6 had the different sizes, 2.0 litre ones were all 9 inch. Thanks. Yeah honestly judging from all the pictures it looks like someone's put the 2.8i/3.0 ones on mine.

Re: Brake shoes

So mk3's had either an 8" or 9" drum? Tickover has them for sale in both sizes, and the little 8" ones look like the ones I've been sent that don't fit.
I'm so confused about this as it's the first time I've heard of it.

Re: Brake shoes

I can't afford to take it anywhere right now as money is tight, my dad was the one who gave me the money for the shoes in the first place so I can't really take it to a garage.

Potentially.... I wasn't aware that they were different but if that's the case then that's likely what's happened. The ad did specify that they were for a 2.0 though so not sure why they'd send the ones for a 1.6. eBay sellers for you I guess lol.

Brake shoes

Just tried fitting some new rear shoes I bought off eBay that were advertised as being the correct ones for my car, however they're completely different from my old ones. They are narrower, and don't even match the circumference of the older ones or the drums themselves. They look like they'd fit on...

Picked one of these up a few weeks back, was absolutely stunned to see a shirt with a Capri on it. Forgot to mention it when I saw them.

Cool thanks, I'll get some new bearings ordered. Hey, if it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all :roll:

Thanks guys. Ive gone ahead and ordered one from an ebay seller, looks slightly different from the one that snapped so hopefully its slightly better, these things seem to be pot luck.

Re: So.... throttle cables

It's funny, but it seems everything that goes wrong on this car is due to an aftermarket part failing. Says alot doesn't it?
