I have a standard laser set up on the front. Cheers.
On the front? Are you sure your Capri isn't a Series land rover? ;)

I think I got mine from Burton power but just checked the price and they're not cheap and out of stock!

Has anyone else noticed that Euro Car Parts...

..aren't as good as they were a few years ago? Ordered some belts for a MK1 MX5 last month... put the whole job back 24 hours as they were BOTH wrong. Then Daisy ordered some shoes for her Capri off her reg and they sent 2.0 ones instead of 1.6 ones. As some head bashing was going on, I overheard my...

Re: How Much!!

How come the Escort is pretty much unusable then? No petrol in it? :) The seller states that it is "purely an ornament to be showcased or the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle in a very high end collection". To a certain extent, I have to agree with that. I can't see somebody spending nearly £100K o...

Re: Must be summer...

Hey all, just got the Capri out of hibernation - big thanks to Major Tom for the help driving me about to get a new battery, and doing an oil change. My pleasure. I forgot how nice condition your Capri is.. everything's so tight and true and shiny. And it has an interior that is in the car and not ...

Cheers guys. Yes I guess she could have broken down in a worse place. She was also fortunate not to be travelling faster and hit something when she lost the steering. Don't think she felt lucky but on balance ..... Cool story. Odd how nobody got in her motor with her innit... perhaps you have uncov...
