  1. Yeah I understand the windscreen will put most people off but if I get it done under my insurance it will cost me full price when I go to cancel the insurance after I sell it. I had a windscreen replaced under insurance on my old car and it doesn’t affect their premiums and you don’t have to declare it and it doesn’t affect your ncb or policy in anyway, I’m not sure if people understand that which might put them off, all they have to pay is up to £120 towards the new windscreen from their insurance company the main reason it’s cheap is because of the windscreen. There is a scratch by the drivers door handle looks like someone has done it with a key. In getting some some of the problems fixed in the next couple weeks and it’s now on cats. I’ll try and upload more photos but seems to not like my phone when uploading so takes a couple tries
  2. Yeah I’m gonna get the rattle fixed. The windscreen is on my insurance for £90 but when I sell the car I want to cancel my insurance and if I have the window fixed they will charge me for it I can stick the cats back on if anyone is interested and wants it like that
  3. Thank you, it does need a little tlc but still a HR at the end of the day. Just a shame they’ve gone down in price so much
  4. Haven’t had no interest so reduced it a fair bit for under 7k you could have a HR. New TYC fans on to
  5. Few little updates for mileage and price got my eye on something else now

    Fan shroud

    Yeah not really worth it I’ll just get the TYC fan shroud instead. Shame there’s not an “upgrade” fan shroud for the HR

    Fan shroud

    I was looking at buying them but checked here first so didn’t buy them in the end. No just standard HR rad. A lot lot of effort for not really much gain isn’t it? but I spose it would be good to do and could help other members do it

    Fan shroud

  10. Price drop to £8.3k adding to many miles on it now

    Fan shroud

    Wondering if anyone is selling a mishimoto fan shroud?
  12. As I’m a young driver and my insurance is high I tried for 3 weeks different times of the day and night, running around 3 quotes a day and the difference is crazy. I was first offered a good quote 1.8k and accepted it. Kept doing the quotes and by the time of the renewal I had got it down another £100 in those 3 weeks just by getting quotes at different times of the day and night. Same insurer with different quotes each time and every time I rang them up and they just dropped the price to match it when I found cheaper. On the phone each time was the best price they could give me but then 3 days later I would ring up again with a better price from the same insurer. This was 2 years ago on my rx8 and using comparethemarket.

    Mps4 set for £478

    Just bought a set for my 18” rays. Correct sizes for £478 inc delivery blackcircles with a 10% discount using code: MICH10 I believe the offer ends the end of the week hope this helps anyone looking for some
  15. Nice car out of budget and don’t want to go over really. I think I’d rather have the lotus evora over that
  16. Still can’t make my mind up, I’ve still got to wait till the zed sells so gives me time to think. I’m gonna need a while thinking Yeah not a bad looking car just doesn’t grab my attention but starting to realise nothing that grabs my eye is in my price range. How I love expensive taste :/
  17. this is what happens you don’t sleep properly combined with a lot of overtime at work, if anyone wants to use my new word feel free I don’t take responsibility if you look stupid though
  18. Yeah was stupid times for me, was caught doing 120 on a motorway and that’s only what they could prove apparently. As as for the 4c it’s a nice looking car and would be good for me but over budget like the R8 otherwise I would get the R8. The corvette is okay just left hand drive Im just trying to stay under 25k and don’t want to go anymore but thanks for the optionions
  19. Oh god lol I hate civics just remind me of teenagers in McDonald’s car parks. I know the new one is totally in a different league now but still don’t like it
  20. As said below I’ve heard a few times the A45 AMG is boring and I was interested in it before. I would something that has amazing handling but does make me think about test driving one. I’m not scared of pushing it to its limits hence 2 speeding ban for 110+ A car with a soul is a good way of summing up what I want. I currently have a 350z for a daily so you can tell I don’t need much room or anything that would define a daily driver for others such as good mpg or rear seats
  21. What’s the handling like on one of these? My mate did mention it the other day after seeing the Grand tour and got me thinking so could be a possibility.
  22. Yeah I get the value will go down drastically. The suspension was aftermarket. I believe the ome suspension was around 6k for a full set
  23. I was surprised when I looked as a brake set on a R8 is around 1-1.5k and the clutch was 2k. The only problem was the suspension as it tends to leek but a coil over set is 1.5k. I have my dad who owed a garage for many years and rebuilt a gt40 plus many others and all his contacts so won’t be to bad if I get into difficulty with it
  24. I do like the look of them but more of a crusier so I’ll pass on that one. Tbh I’ve never driven one but it’s the same as the Porsche I just don’t see a beemer that I like the look of :/ the Gtr is to much for maintenance costs for me. Im still looking at its hard to find something as good as the R8 as it’s a sports car but good daily at the same time just a shame on the price maybe I’ll save for another year or look for one that’s crashed and repairable just no frame damage
  25. Yeah I think Aston’s are out of mind as it’s a GT car. The evora I haven’t looked at that much so will have a better look into that one but as you say if a decent one is to much then that’s out too. Yeah I’ll see what I can do for test drives maybe a Porsche will change my mind when I drive it. As for the Gtr’s I thought they were a lot higher around the 30’s but seeing there that low I might have a look. I will he taking servicing costs and maintenance cost into account as well and I know the Gtr is bad for this thanks for the help guys gives me a few ideas but still not certain on a choice yet
