  1. Some mate you are! Done a rare bit of chod-fondling today. The 406 coupe I got off Bramz was painfully slow. I knew it should have been better, so I've been doing a bit of googling of late. Had a look around it, and checked for anything obvious amiss. Found it had a big slab of metal tube stitched into one of the intakres, and a steel pipe on the end of the intake, just before the manifold. Though it had had a load of bodging in the past, so decided to get rid. Had a load of Gumtree messers (surprise!!!), so kept looking round for ideas to sort it. Found on 406 OC that all the pipework that I thought was a bodge, is a delete of air dosers and EGR. This got me wondering whether the low power was something fairly simple, and whether the car had had some previous fettling in the go-faster stakes. Apparently, the 2.2 hdi is really picky about having a good MAF, so I hit Ebay, and bought the cheapest one I could find. £23 with next day delivery. In the meantime, a guy on 406oc had posted that he had used the same supplier for one, and had good results. Fitted it tonight, and FUCK ME, it goes like a scalded cat. I'm convinced it's been mapped, as it feels way faster than Mrs S's Alfa. Not sure how I can tell without a rolling road session, which I can't really be arsed with. Suffice to say, I'll be keeping it for a while.
  2. I haven't been in the same car twice, although there have been years where I've barely scraped in under the 15 year limit. From my vague memories, I think they were, Celica Gen 2 Celica Gen 5, Golf Cabrio, Volvo 480, XR2, 306 DTurbo phase 1, Puma, 306 XSi, Celica Gen 6, Leon Cupra, 306 DTurbo phase 3 and Clio 172. Not sure what it'll be this time...….

  4. There is an irrational part of me that is very tempted by that Vito. Unfortunately, the rational part of me realises that I'm skint, and that Devon is a long way away. If it were to roffle, however...……..
  5. Anyone want a passenger seat for 306 GTi-6? No rips etc. It's in the way a bit,but I can't face tipping it.
  6. I'll have a pair of randoms please.
  7. Two randoms please.
  8. I'll take a random please.
  9. 15 year old Clio 172. So.... 1979 - approx. 15 years, French, small, fast, fairly common.. Dauphine Gordini? But what about the 406? 1979 - approx. 17 year old French coupe?
  10. I'd completely forgotten about this. No way of going, I'm on nights all weekend. Gutted.
  11. It was first registered in Bolton, at Mead Jaguar. I was going to take a picture of it outside the original supplying dealer, but thought tit might have been a bit geeky. Wish I had now, as the dealer has now moved, so the original site is empty.
  12. 306 GTi 6 passenger seat. No tips or holes. Offers etc. 306 electric mirrors. 306 XSi steering wheel. Needs a good clean Celica Gen 6 back light, o/s Seat Leon Cupra 1.8 petrol clicks. Untested. Bought in error. Alfa 147 offside back door. Some scratches that might buff out. Solid black. Complete with glass and trim, but no window switch. Offers on everything. Collection preferable. Big items collection only. Shirley possibly available, subject to distance and time.
  13. May have been a new relationship moving too fast, leading to potential of twice as many kids!
