  1. Likewise. PO6 is also on my doorstep. I can potential collect daytime this week. PM me with details and I will assist if Stanky can’t.
  2. An electric powered Reliant Fox drove across the roundabout in front of me the other day I kid you not! It had something splashed down the side indicating that it was electric but I can’t find any details online about it yet.
  3. Good luck, it will be an awesome purchase - it's up there with the Hearse that someone on 'ere drove back from the continent.
  4. With reference the strange Roller: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian-car-scene/48978-rs-2-cr-rolls-royce-gets-rs-1-cr-makeover-dc.html
  5. Working near Braintree at the moment but Dibden Purlieu isn't near me or somewhere I would pass by.
  6. Where do they need to get to in Essex?
  7. Zantimisfit - yes, exactly what I am looking for! There is a 2.6 one for sale at the moment which is much further up the coast. That ones only just gone on - I will look into a bit further.
  8. The other half has got a facelift 105 BHP Twinair Lounge, it's a great car. She would have liked a Bini but it was too expensive and it didn't drive right on the standard skinny tyres. Unfortunately the options don't come cheap on the Mini and you can't get away with buying a 'standard' spec car hence going for another 500 Lounge. Some trim levels do come with height adjust but I have a feeling that its only on the drivers side. I'd have to double check on ours.
  9. I had a Van Aaken smart box on a 1.4 TDCi MK6 Fiesta - worked well, improved the MPG and gave the figures quoted. My Focus 2.0 TDCi has a somewhat more sophisticated Ford approved re-map and has a handset to upload it with. It drives like a completely different car with it uploaded - mpg is better, far fewer flat spots and as for the performance, it gives ST and RS models a fun for it's money! It pulls like a train - the in gear acceleration is superb. The remaps been on the car from new which is now 10 years old, the figures that it makes are slightly better than the current ST TDCi models. I've struggled to find a better car to replace it with although this isn't your average Focus - its an ex-Ford show car with a full MS Design conversion and every conceivable option fitted. List price was over 30K new. I'd only recommend using a reputable firm such as Superchips or Mountune. It's all well and good tuning a TDCi but if you've got mega miles, don't have the stopping power, or can't get the power down its best avoided.
  10. Not to far from me but I don't really know a great deal about them. I've clocked painted brake calipers and what's looks like an aftermarket exhaust that has been removed in the pictures.
  11. This is an absolute pig of a job and isn't something I'd recommend doing at home. Best left to a professional as it invariable leads to the battery going completely flat trying to start the car again. An oil sucker is useful to pull the derv through. My independent Ford specialist and main dealer absolutely hate changing these, as it can be a lengthily time consuming job.
  12. That is a pukka 4x4 Cosworth in Radiant Red and one of only a handful made. It's very late registered and certainy one of the last built. Love the comments from its last MOT!

  13. Possibly depending on what the car is.
  14. Been looking at that Granada for some time but it is very far North. Need to some better pictures to ascertain the condition really. It's been advertised before and I believe it is pretty good which would be handy as welding and bodywork is beyond my skills set! Perfect base for what I'd want to build though.
