  1. It’s a HR. 57 plate. Roadster. it’s the rear wings that have started to rust around the rim.
  2. Hi mate. My air conditioning unit is apparently not working. How much for this part? also my wheel arches are starting to rust. Are these bonded to the car or can they be removed? (I’m a roadster)
  3. Looking for a used stainless exhaust. Cat back or Y pipe back is fine. A Cobra sport would be perfect. cheers. Lee
  4. Out of interest, Do you see any issue buying a used Cobra exhaust? Its stainless so i'm guessing rust shouldn't be an issue?
  5. Thank ZMANALEX. As always you've been a great help. Lee
  6. I Plan on keeping the cats that are on the car for now. Although one of them is making a bit of noise so will need to change them eventually. So if i keep the cats the exhaust should just bolt on?
  7. Quick question. Will a Cobra sport cat back system (Y+mid+back box) fitted to a DE bolt straight onto a HR? Lee
  8. I haven’t see that thread. Why wouldn’t my mechanic know this? They have both test driven the car! I can hear the noise when driving. But don’t know what components are causing the noise. I’ll check the thread.
  9. I totally trust my Mechanic. But I don’t trust the people who refurbished my wheels. The actual job they do is good but the quality checks afterwards are appalling. So much so that I’ve had three wheels refurbished for free because I was so unhappy. Now I’m wondering if they put the wheels back on as they should. I’m hoping I can have my brake discs pro cut and make sure back of my alloy wheel is clean and I should be good to go.
  10. Well, I’m not mechanic so I would never of thought to ask about it. You always assume that the people you’re paying know what they’re doing. My suggestion is this is down to the alloy wheel refurbish meant as it’s happened since then.
  11. Just had a good chat with a guy from EBC. he’s basically said everything you both said above. I’m going to talk to the garage that fitted them to check they did a run out. I have also had a refurb in January and he said that could be a problem if there is any excess paint or poorly fitted wheels. he said having them pro cut on the car is a good option.
  12. im not fully sure what that is but from a quick google i'm assuming this would fall under a warrenty?
  13. So the second problem with my car right now. My brakes have started juddering. Had new EBC disks and pads a few months ago. what could this be? My old disks lasted for 8 years. Could this be a warrenty thing from EBC perhaps?
  14. For a few weeks i've had some knocking from the front driver side. I've had the car into two garages. Both have road tested the car and can hear the knocking but on inspection they said everything looks good and tight. The second garage had a shaker plate but still couldn't replicate the noise. His conclusion was it was probably the shock causing the noise. Has anyone else had this or had shocks go? I'm still on the original 13 year old shocks. Also, is this a good excuse to upgrade the suspension? If so where do i even start with that?
