1400 vs 1600

Hi all,
just wondered if anyone has experience of how a 1400 4 speed compares to a 1600 5 speed on 1990 cars - engine/gearbox/driveablity?

se6 for restoration

that's what I thought Roger but the VIN seems to suggest a very early 6a, although I am not sure I took it down correctly!


The owner isn't very well at the moment so I am not able to further this but I think we have now secured the car's future.

dvla tax rates

thanks, AFAIK you can do the same thing from the registration plate search service on the same site so I am not sure why the vin search would give a different result, but even so, I don't think people would give out their vehicle details especially if the reg plate is clearly visible in the advert. ...

dvla tax rates

thanks,
These sort of sites are great for general information, but we all know there are differences between the real world and the DVLA and I am looking for find out exactly what the DVLA holds for individual vehicles rather than general information about models.

dvla tax rates

thanks!
the same thing happens with this site - take N407BRR for instance, comes up as zero tax.

However, on this site, our current vehicle comes up at £230 per year when, in fact, we are charged over £550!

dvla tax rates

Hello Everyone! We are thinking of changing our 9 seater Vito for something similar. I have seen a few I like the look of and have looked on the DVLA vehicle check website to see what the CO2 level is, to work out how much tax I will have to pay. A lot of vehicles, mostly imports, come up as zero g/...

ss1 gearbox

Hello All, getting the gearbox into 1st on my '85 1600 SS1 is a struggle. It just doesn't want to go in. Sometimes the only way I can do it is to put it into second then slide forwards into 1st but even this isn't exactly smooth. I was wondering if this points to an adjustment issue, clutch wear iss...

Moss - SuperPro front suspension bushes £39.72

Do you need one set for each side or does one set do both?

Thanks

if you do take the plunge on Ebay, there was a breaker in Liverpool who had a set - DW classic breakers or something like that. Pretty sure in white.

sorn/tax

Hello All,
I pay monthly for my tax and I wondered if I go for a SORN, does anyone know if the tax payments be suspended automatically or do I need to cancel the direct debit as well?

thanks
