Yep, saw that post before buying it. 🙂

Even more familiar, I brought it into the fold.


Initially I was sad that it left the forum but it ended up bringing the owner here so a warm welcome! Oh and first dibs if you decide to y'know, get bored of it.

Hi,

I'm Weirdo - I've been browsing this forum for probably 15 years or so & decided to join because I can contribute some pics to spotters threads etc.

I love old cars and bikes & have a couple of old bikes.

The old bikes I have are an RD125DX 1976 & a TS125 1972. I have no room or need for a car currently but have a great interest in them & appreciate the enthusiasm on this site & want to join in when I have the time.

A pleasure to introduce myself to everyone 👍

Hello, just sorting a few of the niggles out, drivers control for electric rear window switch replaced, passengers rear window motor/cable replaced (cable snapped) going to do drivers side rear as a bit slow. Replaced front centre arm rest as a bit tatty. Oil and filter done and replaced the alternator belt and tensioner as a bit noisy. Rear brakes sorted but when the wheel was off did see it needs a bit of welding done near the back suspension mount, will do that when weather gets better. Then        I will address the lacquer peel/ paint issue 😕.  I have wanted a 166 for a while now so I am happy now 😀

Hi All,

I have been here for a while and an introductory post was in order.

I am Ahsan, based in Northampton. Passionate about cars, especially those from the late 20th century :) Mercs and Old Asian makes are my thing. I am a keen detailer and restorer. 

My daily driver is a Mercedes CLC 200Cdi and the other half drives a Seat Leon Mk3

I am a Software Engineer / Implementation manager working in a Fintech startup in London.

Can't wait to get inspired. I'm currently driving 2018 tipo 1.4t-jet. At the rate modern flats are getting autoshite status all I need to do is keep it for another year or so. :D

Does having a lot of car cosmetics but no time to apply them count as being detailer? If so, count me in! ;)

Already AS material, m8 - like the Dacia Duster (and we have a few of those!)

@Rad_slav How do you rate the Tipo? the OH was very close to buying one but then settled for a seat leon.

I like it, I was on the hunt for a large -ish hatchback and tipo ticked most of the boxes. The 1.4t-jet won't win any races (or maybe that's driver issue) but allows to cruise comfortably at motorway speeds, 6th gear is a blessing. It is a bit thirsty but then it's driven mostly on short distances nowadays... went for s-design option and the interior is large and comfy. So you're getting a lot of car for less than the premium brands.
