Cruise control

On the Audi they definitely came on. Whilst towing at night you could see them illuminating the car on the trailer.
To be honest, that’s how I discovered that the car was braking for me whilst using cruise control.

I would suggest you go on willtheyfit.com and have a look at how the offset works. It’s a great tool to help get your head around it.

Cruise control

I've always found it to be less economical, but it doesn't stop me using it on some journeys. The problem is that it's trying to maintain the same speed all of the time, so as soon as you get to an incline it adds more throttle. If you were controlling the throttle yourself, you'd probably just take...

SS1 7"X13" 4x100 ML wheels for sale

Steve. You only have yourself to blame that these MLs aren't sold already. I told you not to have them done in gunmetal grey. Eugh. Yeah right :roll: :lol: I think the problem is the PCD not the colour. I've had loads enquiries from the Ford boys hoping I'd got it wrong and that they were 108. I'll...

SS1 7"X13" 4x100 ML wheels for sale

I use two sets of wheels on my car, both with 195/50/15 tyres:-

15” 7J ET28
15” 6.5J ET38 (These were for an MX5 mk2, and could actually do with a 3mm spacer, but they don’t touch anywhere)

SS1 7"X13" 4x100 ML wheels for sale

Yes they're still available, but my not be an ideal choice just to pass an MOT. They're probably more suited to a competition car as they allow for a gearing change with lower RR or fitment of 13" 1B tyres. You can buy a brand new set of 6.5J 15" wheels that are a perfect fit from around £250 (see e...

latest thinking brakes pads

I use yellow stuff. Great for both road and track.

Experience based on GW discs/metro turbo calipers on the Sabre and Wilwood calipers/Mazda 626 discs on the SS1.

1800ti exhaust manifold needed

If there are no cracks allowing leaks to the outside world, I would give it a go. The gasses are coming out of this port and driving the blades of the turbo. So make sure that nothing is left that could become loose, as all it will do is exit to the turbo and destroy fan blades.
