Re: Did pre L-reg R8 are ready IR alarm

I will cautiously say "no".

The 1993 model year revisions were quite extensive and that would have involved alterations to wiring looms and more.

In 1989/90, very few cars were supplied with factory-fitted alarms/immobilisers, even as options.

Re: Slow indicator

Hi all! Hopefully you can help. When I use the indicators generally their fine but after a while it's like they get really slow. Not like there's a long gap between the click but just take a while to turn on, then stay on, then turn off and obviously repeat. Anyone had this before? So are you sayin...

'Classics For Carers' charity stay-at-home event 7th June 2020

Following on from my previous 'Don't Drive It Day' event thread, we have been advised of another event (of sorts) in which club members can use their Rover to help raise money for NHS charities – all by staying safe at home. The event is called 'Classics for Carers', and you may have heard of it on ...

Re: What is my car trying to tell me?

How old is the fuel in the tank, John? And how much fuel is in there?

If it is a few months old, it could already be past it's 'best before date'.....!

Re: Hello everyone!

:welcome I do know of one club member who owns exactly what you are looking for (so there is at least one Pearlescent Cherry 400 surviving) but I don't know if he would sell it :) It's a fantastic colour: does anybody else remember the special edition Metro, Maestro and Montego? https://twitter.com/...

Re: Regional meet

Sounds like an interesting plan, Nigel.

If pubs and indoor venues are a no-no all summer, maybe try a country park to park up in, with a handy chippy or pizza takeaway nearby?

Re: Wanted to buy or trade streetwise cosmos 6 spoke (BRM) alloys

Thanks for the explanation there, John: I always wondered what the difference between genuine BRM wheels and the HH/R Cosmos wheels is! So would I be correct in thinking that fitting a set of the genuine BRM wheels to an R8 would stop the tyres fouling the inner wings on full lock? (As that is the p...

Re: Engine won't start

You haven't mentioned the rotor arm in your list of parts changed.

Although your symptoms don't match my experiences of rotor arm failure completely, it is a very cheap and very quick fix :)

Re: Social Isolation jobs list on the R3 Vi

The 'bent tin' looks suspiciously like a pair of domestic radiator brackets :laughing2 Nice neat transformation into something far more useful! I don't remember any R3 having an underseat CD changer installation (every one I have seen is on the left hand side of the boot), but under the passenger's ...

(Don't!) Drive it Day 2020

Well folks, as we are not being encouraged to drive our classics on 'Drive-it-Day' this year, one of the major suppliers of car club regalia has thought up an alternative way to mark the day, while helping the NHS at the same time: https://shop.dragonflyrally.co.uk/NHS-Charity-Fundraising-Rally-Plat...

Re: Starter motor

Plenty of new or reconditioned starter motors available on eBay, typically £50-60. I should point out that some 'reconditioned' starters will be of a better standard than others.... You could also check your local car breakers if they are still open. You need to make sure you are getting the correct...
