  1. oooo there must be a 3rd then! His (and it's doppleganger) are the later(?) model. Both in silver.
  2. the only other thing I remember, was one of the injectors had some sort of sensor on it. Occasionally the car with throw a wobbler and pop a fault code, running like a bag of spanners. Had the diag software (vol-cr or something?), and it was always something with that unjector. Clear code, fine for another 6 months!
  3. Have just realised that you must be "the other" member of the Bucks sebring owners club.... Membership of two. My friend has the Milton Keynes one. Utterly silly car - Eats front pads and discs, can't corner, struggles to get into double digit consumption figures. His reason for buying it? The cup holder can warm a cup or cool a cup. 🤣
  4. Had one, loved it. Every single year I'd tell myself it'd be it's last MOT. Every single year it'd just need something trivial. Eventually written off after being T-boned by a bus, with a paltry 350K+ miles on the clock. Absolute top steed
  5. A friend has just done something similar but with a different approach. He’d been lusting after Triumph gt6, sat under a tarpaulin for a least 5 years; well known in the local circles as one of those “do not ask, it’ll never be for sale”. My friend knocked on the door, started talking to the chap about the car; explained how he’d seen it getting worse under the tarp and would the old boy mind terribly if he removed the tarp and gave it a good cleaning - may even dissuade some of the annoying people knocking on the door asking if it’s scrap etc. During the car clean (which turned into several successive cleans - deliberately), they chatted at length about the car, the history of them etc. He ended up not just cleaning it, but getting it fired up and running. After 6 weekends of visits, he ended up getting the car through an MOT (despite it not needing one), where upon the old chap gave him the car. There’s a whole sad tale attached to why he was so attached to the car, and seeing someone else who had the same passion for the car is what helped him let go of it. My mates also made a bit of a habit of popping round to “ask him for advice” on the car. So, I’d say ask away; the worse they can say is no.
  6. Bloody love a R4, ran one for many years back in the 90's. Cornering at speed would have onlookers pointing and running for cover!
  7. Sadly not true; We had a long detailed and very boring email about why it wasn’t.
  8. Trying locate a number plate from the dealer "john wallwork" , preferably the Worcester branch, from around the mid 80's - 200/400/700 era! By number plate, I mean a photo of one, as I'm trying to get the right dealer logos. Terribly sad I know.....
  9. Also this. Mines outside if you need any photo's/advice/where does this go? type of stuff Help is just a PM away
  10. Does anyone know of a proper aircon place? Not someone who can re-gas, but someone who can re manufacture/repair Condensors, pumps etc? Most of the AC stuff I've got is NLA, and trying to hunt for such a specialist just brings up loads of Gassing businesses.
  11. Just one thought. The car had a full tank of fuel, and problems started after that...
  12. No wiring changes needed; just don’t use the plug over the gearbox. Handy tip too; it should start and run on the 1zz ECU. Just helps when ruling out starting problems.
  13. Is this the ford era of volvo’s where components were coded to the car? Your probably going to need vida/dice to clear the code.
  14. You got the 2zz ready to drop in? You’ve also reminded me I said I’d fish out the guide I did....
