  1. I had a Peugeot 309 Zest that I rescued from a friend who was going to scrap it because he couldn't get it to start. I got it running, MOT'd it and was happily wafting around in it for a couple of months. Then it needed 3 tyres so I treat it to a set of 309 GTi Goodwood alloys that came up cheap locally with nearly fresh tyres - cushty I thought. Then a rear flexi burst and made me shat my pants at a busy set of lights, yanked the handbrake and screeched to a halt broadside like Starsky & Hutch! Changed both rear flexi hoses - sorted. Then one day merrily pootling down the M62 on my way to Liverpool it starts misfiring, then fixing itself, then misfiring again - getting worse each round. I decide to pull into Hartshead Moor Services to investigate. Pulling into the car park I see a faint wisp of smoke from under the bonnet...... shit, I better park out of the way just incase! As soon as I park up I open the bonnet and ......WHOOSH........ fuck me it's on fire! I shut the bonnet and start running around like a headless chicken looking for a fire extinguisher but alas too little too late, the fire service had been called and dowsed it. Nail - coffin - brown bread.
  2. If you were closer I'd do it for you, but at 250 miles each way I'm oot! Good luck though, I'm sure someone will help.
  3. Hi, I was hoping somebody may be able to help me! I have a 2005 Golf Plus that has had the G201 ABS fault for nearly a year, I'm getting round to swapping out the ABS pump for one with identical numbers but I may need the ESP light on the dash resetting afterwards, and also after a flat battery the Airbag light has decided to make an appearance! The generic cheaper code readers can't read or clear the ABS ECU on VAG cars so I was hoping there might be someone localish to me who had VAG software or a decent code reader who could help me with this? Thanks in advance.
  4. Possibly an early micra, or a datsun?
  5. Dreadful news, I will miss his posts. RIP Dave. My condolences and thoughts are with his family & friends.
  6. I painted my XR3 in Ford Purple Velvet which looks very similar to that Mini colour. I miss that car, took me 4 years to do a full nut and bolt resto then stupidly sold it!
  7. Friend of mine had a Delkevic on his SV, it was quite loud but he ran it with no baffle and I never heard it with the baffle in so can't comment how much quieter they are with the baffle in. Good quality cans though.
  8. He was fun to watch in his older videos, he was still working as a plumber and doing daft shit in his spare time, but as has been said, he started to get sponsors and turned into a complete sell out and it shows in his videos.
  9. I don't have one but I'd like to build one for shits and giggles. Have you seen the one Colin Furze built? It's a beast.

  11. You should see the ones for Mk1 & Mk2 Escorts, listed as 'memorabilia'. Upwards of £5K for a Mexico/RS one with tags.Hmm, righto! eBay, DVLA, Police etc don't seem to mind as long as it's memorabilia I guess.

  14. Love this thread. ESP light is most probably the pressure sensor in the ABS pump, common fault on VAGs and my Golf has the same issue.
