Re: Tyre Pressure Check

Might be an obvious thing to point out, but pressures will read differently at different temperatures iirc

Re: Worth complaining

Companies offer incentives to get your business. If they're not willing to offer incentives to *keep* your business (without you having to ask) then it's best to vote with your feet imo.

Re: Capri nut without a Capri

Nice to see you back Bug, just a shame it had to be in a BMW!!! (Although I approve of the bold colour choice, I get bored of all the monochrome cars around - doesn't help that my last 4 cars have gone silver, grey, black, black! :lol: )

A good example being the bonnet, didn't like it plus I couldn't see apex on left handers, now gone.


Hahah, yeah, I can see in the picture that it could make that difficult actually!!

Re: Wheels Help

Wheel diameter doesn't matter. What matters is what tyres you put on, and the width and offset you use. E.g. with the same width and offset, and an appropriate tyre, it will have almost identical proportions : http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=205&aspect=60&diameter=13&wheelwidt...

Re: 18” wheels on a mk3 Capri with xpack

Yes 18" wheels are possible, clearance issues will depend on wheel width, offset and how low you want to go. I run 18's although I still think they look a bit too big on a Capri, for me it's a case of needs must as anything smaller won't fit over the 360mm discs and 6-pots, plus there's an end...

Re: Worst Capri

280. Same as standard except for worse wheels, horrible paint colour, naff decals and a boring interior.

Re: Hi can anyone help with information on a V8 Capri conversion

Thanks for the info and the pics mctool. Interesting idea with the rad. Which rad are you using? I'd love to see pics of it in situ if it's done already!

Re: Indicators gone fookin nuts

I've just checked the part number on a Capri one here and it is different to the ones quoted. I don't think it will work but I may be wrong. I do know that early MK2 and MK3 are wired differently, they will plug in but don't work. Hmm, if i ever take the dash apart enough to test it i'll report bac...

Re: Indicators gone fookin nuts

I've seen on ebay that there's people selling new aftermarket ones. I bought one as a backup but haven't tried it yet. I looks close-ish, but maybe a little *cheap* looking :( Check the part number on your switch matches with the one you buy as there were 2 types. These both look the same and the pl...

Re: 1987 Laser Wheel Stud Replacements

Oh you've already had it done? Just thought I'd point it out in case you weren't aware and were planning to DIY it. I had a go at doing mine, but it's a very close fit on the back with it all in situ.
