  1. Very well bought man. I bet they're a hoot to bootscoot aboot.
  2. Mine is currently being treated to a brake master cylinder, front shocks, a gearbox mount, an rear spring, a CV boot and an exhaust front section to bring it up to standard. Once that's all done, it'll be available for sale sadly as my 4x4 Panda is eating it's gearbox.
  3. Not yet. But may be on the cards in the long run.
  4. Well bought man. All the cool kids have Cavaliers.
  5. Glad you're feeling better man. Rummaging around in that interior has probably given you immunity to most communicable diseases now.
  6. It's not man no. The ex-Asimo and me one resides happily with @sdkrc

  10. Yeah. Makes no difference. Sure it should, but it doesn't. It's only really an issue on the downshift. It crunches changing up, but not as bad as you're usually speed matched well enough anyway.
  11. Imagine what they might have done if you said you had a 1.7 TD hatch!
  12. After its repaired and known good I think the Cavalier is going to be for sale man. Only room (and finances) for one keeper unfortunately.
  13. Yes, the eventual plan is a lift kit and big knobblies. Even the remould mud tyres I was looking at were quite expensive. At the moment, some wet weather road tyres made best sense. One day plan:
