  4. Anyone who has a k&n filter!

    Ok Its probably the way i fitted it or something but it has rubbed thru a fuel line next to it! Luckily it happened in my garage and the 3 foot petrol fountain was easily spotted!! its only been on about 1000 miles but might be worth checking?? Ah sunday mornings in the garage with my vr.....just slightly beats watching hollyoaks with the girlfriend haha!

  9. Handbrake warning light?

    OK thanks i think i'll check the brake fluid before i leave work!!!
  10. In the last week, the light on the dash that comes on when the handbrake is on lights up under hard accelleration. has anyone else had this and is the light a warning for anything else? It all started after i was testing 0-60 and 1/4 mile times with a performance tester - should've known better!! got 7.3 to 60 and 15.8 for a 1/4 mile with my mate in the car and all the stereo stuff in the boot. not too bad for a standard car thats over 10 years old? Any help would be much appreciated

  14. koni/eibach..

    hi, i've got koni/eibach setup and i'm happy with it (not that i've ever had anything different on the car) the front shocks were £230 a pair and i'm waiting on a price for the rears - they just bust. The fronts got changed last month but they've all been on the car 10 years - so i can reccomend them for durability. I'm keeping the springs they seem ok. Also the car hardly ever catches on speed bumps and stuff - except for stupid asda.
  15. Hi guys bit of techy help please. When adjusting the rear bearings do you adjust to a torque setting or is end float required in the bearings. Thanks Ryan
