Re: R8 Drivers Door Checkstrap

There should be a bracket (or flange) which sticks out of a slot in the A pillar. I think this is spot welded to the A pillar. I wonder if that has come adrift and fallen into the A pillar panel? The check strap is attached to this bracket/flange with a large split pin (and by two bolts at the othe...

Re: Luton Festival of Transport, Sunday 27th June. CLUB STAND!

Any more for this? Make sure you book a 'club' ticket so that you get directed straight to our stand when you arrive. The online booking process did seem a bit long-winded (they wanted a photo of the car as well) but it all worked in the end. Or if you are paying on the gate, explain that you are on...

Re: Late Model Tourer Interior Question

You can fit more or less anything from an earlier R8 (I believe the rear seats from hatchback R8s also fit the Tourer) and you can use front seats from an R3 (200 Mk3, 25, ZR etc) but not a lot else. Actually, now I think of it, I am sure I have seen BRM carpets fitted in an R8 before, so you may be...

Re: Looking at a MG 6 or MG 3? edit bought a mg 3 lux!

My parents-in-law have an MG3 'Style Lux' and have no complaints with it. Admittedly, it could do with a more exciting engine (I do know of a company that has installed a 1.8 turbo K-series in one!) but it seems to be screwed together better than my 2005 ZR (and the 2005 ZS that my in-laws had befor...

Re: 200 cabriolet derestricted SS exhaust, anyone?

Almost 20 years ago I bought an uprated stainless system from Moto-Build for my 220 Turbo and several years before that I bought a stainless system from them for my MG Maestro EFi. They are still in business now: https://www.moto-build.com/ and although they do not appear to have anything specific t...

Re: How many R8's left - do we have a definitive number?

The SEi and Sprint were effectively limited edition (added value) models based on the 214 Si, so I suspect they did not get a unique VIN identifier.

Re: 218 Alarm

Do you know if it is a factory-fitted alarm, or aftermarket? I don't think lower-spec cars had a standard alarm in 1993, so it could be a 'random' aftermarket system, or a Rover-approved kit fitted by the dealer. Is the flashing LED situated in the centre of the instrument pack, or just fitted in to...

Re: Radio Codes

That's strange, I thought that all of the Philips/Rover units used button 1 to start the code entry. Maybe you have a bad connection under button 1? Try pressing it repeatedly with the rdio switched off for a few seconds, which might clear any 'muck' on the contacts and then try the code entry proce...

Re: New Rover owner

:welcome

That's my favourite colour combination for a 5-door, despite all the metallics (and Flame Red) that were available at the time!

It's good to see another one in enthusiastic hands and I hope to see it in the metal at Gaydon (and obviously to meet you too)
