Wonder what gearbox is actually in the car now ?
DAF 1970's variomatic? :w :w
No sympathy for people paying such prices for a car (or picture etc for that matter). When you're spending that money how can you not lock up the deal?

Just picked up a vehicle I've been after for a long time, never seen so many of them available privately at one time and it seems no one has the cash to buy with.

HID lighting

Simple HID kit from ebay was enormous improvement over standard lights (already relay'd) on my SS1, although ballast location was not easy due to moving headlamps. Why are you not interested in LED? I'd appreciate a Link or name to the HID kit you used. Also, since fitting has it been through MOT f...

Power loss

I would not glue it,then what do you do when you have to remove it next time? maybe a clip made for exhaust systems (not the U-bolt type tho.)

Power loss

The pipe you're referring to, with orange seal, fits over the turbo outlet, which normally has a fixing lip at end. The standard clip uses a 6mm bolt that requires quite some tightening to compress the metal lips of the air tube. Much more compression than using eg a standard clip. That could be you...

Power loss

Getting the pipe and new orange gasket fitted is proving tricky is there any trick to getting it lined up at both ends or is it just trial and error :D You get used to it! Put some silicone grease (or washing up liquid) on the inside of the orange seal - that makes it slip over turbo air output mor...

My normal method of finishing with a post (or any web page) is to close it with the tab "X" button and I think that is the normal global mode. You shortcut works well.

TD, I guess everyone has their own preferred way of working - I wouldn't want it to work like that; personally, I have "view unread" set up as a bookmark, so when I've selected & read an unread thread, I simply click the bookmark to refresh "view unread" with the latest status (all in the same tab)...

But wouldn't it be nice if that icon aka "big orange blob" actually opened a new browser tab too, then you can read all new posts one by one so much more easily (on PC as well as phone) hold it down for a second (right click on PC) and select “open in new tab”. There’s no option to open in the same...
