if you look closely, you can see the msport badge on the glovebox
Difference being the z3 gets a good seeing to everyday where as the Concours SWB doesn't get taken over 2000rpm
i know what i'd prefer...
i'm pretty sure that if i had a concours swb, i'd have a sweet racer, too.
Is that a Euph? 😊
EVERY car should be low as fuck IMHO.
apparently, with a b racer, the limit is the 100mm required to pass scrutineering. they'd have them 5mm of the ground if they could
Moving from 250 swb to electric cars.... I've had a leaf for a few years and still don't quite know what i think of it.. Anyone else gone electric?
I imagine that would not be fun in London.
Anyone know if you can find historical prices for items that are constantly relisted by eBay?
I'm wondering about this, which has been for sale for ages and I'm wondering if the price is moving at all.
Swapped for the weekend. Going to chat to the dude next week and see if we're both happy to trade. Until then I keep this for the weekend :)
Stop messing around and just buy this
Need me some car tools.
E sockets, big and small torque wrenches, trolley jack, axle stands.
Cheaply as possible. I can borrow all the above currently, but moving forward it’s obviously not practical to always be borrowing.
Second hand? Brands to go for/avoid?
tbh for home mechanic-ing (in the UK) you can't go wrong with the halfords advanced range.
I would keep an eye for the sale as it's regularly heavily reduced, i bought their top range 2T trolley jack for £84 delivered and the stands were £24 a pair.
Torque wrenches can be spendy though, might be worth looking 2nd hand, maybe one from Sealey, or Norbar if you can find one for the right price
halfords advanced range.
halfords advanced range.
Would recommend. Lifetime warranty and exchanging anything is hassle free.
I need to sell my van and buy a car. I don't really know anything about cars. Ideally after an estate, it doesn't need to be remotely exciting but should be as reliable as possible and as cheap to run as possible. What should I be looking at? Definitely second hand and the less I can get away with spending on it without it being a piece of shit the better.
Mondeo estate is the one. Massive and cheap to buy / run.
Super unexciting though
Ticks all the boxes!
Mondeo MK3 boring cheap and the petrols go for ages.
@soul the mk3 are quite good, think that jag influence makes even the estate quite good. While the mk4 is shared with a few volvos.
Have access to a trade card, torque wrench wise i'd keep an eye on ffx as they have some good deals for certified torque wrenches. While trolley jacks look at machine mart or sgs engineering seem to have some good deals. Have one of their gearbox jacks that I got off someone else and they are good.
The axle stands are superb. The trolley jack not so good in operation, but value wise hard to beat.
