Good luck with the job move - not an easy step to take, I know.

I'm still looking at convertibles, going to look at an old Astra on Saturday all being well.
Probably a safer bet than the Saab, although probably fewer specialists to help with parts and used spares.

Anything involving the aircon and turbo on the 9-3 is a bastard to work on

Re: RollHard Bicester 4th August

At least the Norton hadn't been lowered so much that it looked like something from a circus :)

It's doing 13 average, it doesn't seem to improve much/if any on a run either.
My 6.2L V8 Ford F150 Raptor (400+bhp) does at least that much :)

I'll get round to a thread on it some time.....

Re: 800 Owners Club

This whole business with owners clubs is unsatisfactory and unhelpful to the owners themselves. It reminds me a bit of the Ford Granda owners clubs schisms which have lead to multiple splinter clubs being set up, some of them seemingly tiny and cliquey . If the original 800 club has embraced the Leg...

Re: Another car on the drive

Back to the Jeep - it's worth remembering that the front ARB can make a big difference to how the rear behaves. The well regarded Ron Hopkinson MGB handling kit added a rear ARB (one was fitted as standard on the coil-sprung front end but not the leaf-sprung live rear axle) and it transformed the ca...

Re: Mk2 interior

I've wondered for a long time how good a domestic 3D printer will be for car parts etc, do they have the size capabilities to make something big, are they able to print the item quick enough to make it durable and several other questions. Size obviously affects price but a mate of mine out here in ...

Re: Lancaster insurance

They are generally well regard and backed by the MG Owner's Club. I use them for my MGC, very good on price.

Re: Jeep talk

Not as bad as it could have been - but still more than I paid for my daughter's immaculate, low mileage 2002 Rover 25 (175 quid) :) The engine bay looks like new and the underneath is almost as good https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7814/46565464005_6277f055b0_k.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7800/...

I've ordered a heavy duty rear ARB from the US, I'm hoping that makes a difference. Then I'll decide whether anything else needs changing.
Dare I ask how much?

Re: Jeep talk

I never did anything special on the WJ. I bought it with a 2" lift already fitted (spacers) and practically every rubber bush totally shot. New bushes, mostly poly bushes, helped.

ARB bushes and drop links always seem to be Jeep weak spots
