  1. i saved a giffer spec 205 gl 3 dr from the scrappy once, pale blue and 33k. paid 35 quid for it. was odd, as it was phase1 dash on an e plate but had a tu engine... sold it to a mates mum for $350. lovely little thing
  2. mate over here has a toyota kluger with the rego FLEDDY
  3. those front shocks appear to be big piston bilsteins....
  4. its the pressure releif in the rack. it jams and stalls the pump.
  5. ah shame. seems it didnt have much wrong last time. i reckon its just been classed as an old car and scrapped. low miles aswell. bumhats.
  6. guys, due to the stupid rules with dvsa website i cant check mot status here in oz. can someone chec YF03LHN for me? its a black corsa c sxi 3dr. i bought it at 13 months old and had it for 5 years. thanks.
  7. my old man got a 1.6 zetec on an 03 plate brand new on motab. he handed it back 3 years later with 489 miles on the clock. it had actually done 18,000 but the speedo failed the week before handover. new speedo fitted. on handover day (for a fucking cmax that was dogshit) the sales manager thought the 489 miles was genuine and asked my old man why he handt driven it. im sure they sold it as new.....
  8. if your brave, add 500ml of diesel to your oil. the detergents can assist in breaking down the crud a bit more effectively. i am not liable if this causes OMGVAGDETH
  9. yeah the c18xe made 149bhp on the rollers with nothing but a big silly cone filter and a decat. was a great everyday car. the owner worked out he wa getting 56mpg on the motorway! no pic of the b, its pretty sad looking thing. i keep getting tempted by corsa c's theyre pennies here atm, and i used to have one as a young bloke. that 200ts was in total vauxhall years ago. lovely cars both. there is a 2.0 sport saloon near me, has the full irmischer kit on it and its a purple color. keep meaning to door knock it....
  10. nice job on the corsa, as a fellow vaux licker, ive done my fare share of engine cnversions. best one i did was a 23k mile sport with a c20xe and wide ratio box, used the stock airbox, a/c and pas etc and it looked factory. i also did a c18xe for a lad with a daewoo box that seemed to have close ratios for 1,2,3 and a wide 5th. that was a fun car. currently have a rio verde gsi rep c14se auto sat here awaiting a b204 conversion. that astra 160i is rare as rocking horse, though there is about 4 200i's in the uk inc a turbo one....
  11. the commos use totally different suspension to the uk cars. nothing swaps across. that one in scunny will be fucked. i do wonder how it got there.
  12. its bullshit. oz has been using it for 20 years with no issues.
  13. blue feeds signal to ecu for engine temp. always replace the rubber o rings too.
  14. coolant sensors on vw should never show an open circuit. have you replaced both sensors with new ones?
