Re: Breakdown Cover

My insurer Brentacre don't charge for minor mods (Exhaust, Wheels etc) but you have to inform them of the changes, and if you have an agreed value you have to keep pics updated so they know what it looks like.

Re: Breakdown Cover

It pays to call them folks ;) Exactly. I have never insured a car without speaking to someone on the phone about it, and virtually every time done what you have with your breakdown cover and haggled a lower price. :agree: I always call when possible regarding anything. Can't be bothered with Emails...

Re: Cassette player

The ESRT 32 PS is most common in later Capris.

Try Martin 01507343148 (Caprigear on here) or Colin White 07799693555.

Otherwise try Ebay.

:goodluck:

Re: Stolen!

Thanks for the link to PJ Covers, Ive ordered another cover and a lock. I first wondered if they had been put off taking the car as it had a cable into the house which they might have thought was to do with security (it was just to run a battery optimiser). But if that was the case they would have ...

Re: Silverstone Classic event - great Capri line up

Just watched this hour long Silverstone programme on ITV4, plenty about the Minis 60th birthday including a race, but they showed no more than 10 seconds of the Capri parade lap and a few words :(
