E150 UOL rebuild - End of project :-)

It's not about "needing" such a thing I think. By "need" (note inverted commas) I meant that back when I started it I couldn't sleep without thinking of having one. Life would not be complete without one! And I've never liked having anything that was not fastest model. My garage is too small. And I...

E150 UOL rebuild - End of project :-)

If it helps I can borrow your silver one for a few months But it would come back minus bits and a different color! Not really expecting registration problems - basically same engine with different cyl. head. Just make sure power isn't more than 25% above standard - low boost :) Just don't seem to "...

as long as you don't go from leccy drive to MAXXED out on jungle juice what's different,
That's exactly what I mean as its a demo car. I did that without thinking at the time... as I suspect most others testing it did too.

Hybrid cars - engine wear due to cold engine?

Just been for a test drive in a BMW 225XE (3 cyl petrol and electric plug-in) Drives nicely in town on electric and petrol cuts in automatically when required. So after a while on electric I boot it and see how it accelerates (nice!) but on reflection is that good for a cold engine? I've been brough...

Ahh poo. I’m trying to say find the mojo but i do understand. However, whilst she’s on the drive it’s always when, but after she’s gone it’s never.

E150 UOL rebuild - nice and shiny!

But with no pressure, time on my hands and a desire for a house with a decent sized garage/workshop it was a "do that tomorrow" situation. 6 years later still not found that workshop with small house attached in right place and b*g...
