Re: A little drive with two old-timers - XR8 & Can-Am

Thanks for the compliments - I'm certain my father will enjoy chatting with you. Regarding the serial number of the BW T5 box - from what my research came up with when I had to source the correct 5th gear ratio is that the number comes up as 1352 - 115 which correlates with the ratio given by the m...

Re: C02 emission tax.

If the LCV EuroEmmission standards are only due to be firmed 2014 how is it possible to levy RSA buyers of LCV's with an emissions tax now?? The buggers had the gall to try muscle the Passenger standards on us too - "further consultation" was in no part their idea - Vehicle manufacturers had to figh...

Re: Mercedes SEC vs SLC

Seems unanimous, SEC is my obvious choice too, looks nicer, much rarer, and goes like stink! 450SLC's can get taken by a mediocre warm CitiGolf, u wouldn't like that :(

Re: Trimatic question

Re: XR8 Radiator

Funky stuff turns up in the most unsuspecting places, I see the info on the XR8 says it's a Serck unit but have you tried Silverton by any chance?
