Don't fit Bosch Super 4's. They are a waste of money and perform worse than standard plugs.

The K series is not capable of passing an MOT without a CAT.

Not worth fitting a decat as it kills the back pressure the K series needs nd although it will sound more sporty the performnce will be down.

August 1992 was the date that cat's became compulsory and must pass the cat level emmissions test.

Faulty door switch. Very common nd shared by all of the 200/400/25/45/ZR/ZS cars so plenty of choice to get another from a breakers.

Held in by one screw by the door locking loop on the C pillar.

Could only be the K series as the D series was only ever 1.6 in the 200 :wink:

It will be a 48mm unrestricted plastic throttle body.

Trafficmaster works via those blue things on the sides of the roads which look like a camera.

The wiring is different on the MkIII's, so this will be the case on the MkII.

Is the MKIII clock even compatible with the MkII dash?

Your 96 and 97-99 entries need a specific model name for the VVC as it was named as such. They way you have it shows it as the pauper model as apposed to the top of the range as it was.

Just building the TF would indeed be a waste.

I can't see the smaller cars being made in the UK as there is not the profit margin to do it.

Hopefully the larger and sports models can be where there is that margin.

The Coupe is actually 7.4 to 60 with the Vi being 7.8. For some reason they got put the wrong way around early on and it has stuck.

The VVC is slower to 60 than the Turbo, but given the lighter weight between the front wheels is on a par when on the twisty bits.

Yes you could.

Much of the 1.4 engine is the same as the 1.6. The whole bottom end to start with. The 1.6 is a 1.4 with a larger bore really.
