  1. Spotted a black 350 coming out of wheathampsted onto the marford road this morning at about 06:30 you came out of the roundabout ahead of me and went off towards welwyn I think you gave me a wave I couldnt see through the windscreen. I was in the grey HR.

    Badly Rattling in Clutch area.

    I could be wrong but i remember reading from a few other posts that its normally just a case that the gearboxes are pretty noisy or there's an undertray under the car (was on the 350 not 100% sure if its on the 370) that likes to collect stones and gravel and rattle them about.

    One thing I could say is it might be worth looking at some of the cars that are for sale on here. Quite a few have got pretty detailed build logs, sort of proof they were well looked after. The one you are looking at could be absolutely fine or it oculd be like my one and the slave cylinder could die within 3 days of ownership ;( . I havent driven the auto myself so I cant comment unfortunately but i will say if the paint is in good condition the orange does look fantastic.

    Getting my first car soon and need help!

    Your best bet is to take the registration number of a 350 for sale that you like and put it into a comparison website it should give you a vague idea of prices. A lot will affect it, the type of car, age, no claims, area you live in, how the car is stored. I would say its probably not going to be super cheap if you have just passed but you should find somewhere that will insure you. Just be careful if you do get black box insurance as im sure the 350 would be able to set that thing off constantly. Elephant car insurance have been the cheapest for me so far but I do get a couple of loyalty discounts, but i would give them a check.

    Hey welcome along
  8. Any chance i could hand my number to someone and you give me a little message as you pass junction 9 of the m1? I should be able to meet up with you when you pass junction 10
  9. @cs2000 Im right on junction 10 of the M1 so it is a bit of a trek down to south mimms xD. Its probably only 2 or 3 minutes from my house to being actually on the M1 though so I might be able to catch you all as you pass.
  10. Do you have a route planned out yet? South mimms is the wrong direction for me to go but I live along the M1 so i might be able to catch you all as you go past if thats your route.

    Japfest 2018 Silverstone Sunday 6th May

    Got all my tickets and bits If this helps I found the map from last years japfest silverstone so maybe they are keeping it the same? http://www.japfest.co.uk/sites/default/files/Japfest Map_0.pdf
  12. Ive looked and as far as i can see the dust cover is not touching and the brake pads looked clear of debris when i took them out. Ive taken the brake caliper off and spun the wheel and theres no noise that i can hear. So maybe its a bad disc or caliper? Ive taken this picture of the caliper and im wondering if the piston might be stuck? I think the top right one has come out too far as its dust cover bit wont reach back to the bottom.
  13. I took it all apart and the spacer nuts were maybe a little loose but i decided to spin just the brake disc and the clunk/ping happened again it sounds like its coming from the caliper itself and its fairly hard to turn the wheel it seems like the caliper might be rubbing on the disc the whole time.
  14. Yeah i believe thats the exact one 25mm. I was trying to find on their website their reccomended torque. It seems to say same as your factory torque unless you know more about it? Also thanks by the way
  15. for the rays alloys it is about 110nm of torque i believe. unless im really mistaken?
