Re: Turbo Coupe BRG

Just a bump to say I will be selling one of my fleet to make room for a manual BRG Turbo Coupe should anyone know of one for sale. I'll consider one with mechanical issues but I don't have time to restore a rotten one.

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Instrument backlighting: Just curious but TB2 has orange instrument lighting and TGM has green. Was it an option to choose or is it an age thing? Can you select or change the colour? Also the ABS light on TB2 is on the left of the dash, TGM on the upper right. Is this another age thing? We had to ch...

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

Don't think any warranty would hold as there is no guarantee that it wasn't poisoned by a misfire or hydrocarbons e.t.c. At £60 I'll happily take the hit and swap the old one back in keeping the new one for next years MOT.

Re: Thunderbird 2 & The Green Machine

TB2 now having to have another cat fitted to pass test. Despite new plugs, injector cleaner and an Italian tune up, it's still marginal.
