Honda D16 Engine - R8 and Coupe variants?

Just a quick question. I have a basket case Honda powered Coupe I bought for spares. Is the engine and ancillaries the same as my 1990 216 GSi Auto?

Re: Brake upgrade on 214 16v

as someone who has taken almost all of the adi tests out there is can strongly recommend them as the roads will only get busier and the interiors of cars will only get more entertaining and people will only get more distracted while driving. It's nice to almost have an extrasensory perception of gu...

Re: Brake upgrade on 214 16v

Regarding advanced training, it’s a good idea. We all have something to learn, and approaching this with an open mind is a good idea. I can certainly recommend taking the Advanced Test, unless you're the type of arrogant "I'm God's gift to driving" derriere aperture! It doesn't make you perfect of ...

Re: 420GSI Tourer various fixes

Credit where it’s due, these are well made little switches and the came apart using a thumb nail and we’re easy to reassemble. What I found inside explained the issue. After a wire wool and contact cleaner spray they work beautifully again. That's interesting. I've had to replace several, but have ...

Biggest problem is if you arrive late it’s a small field so you might not get on.

Fatigue permitting, I might be able to come in the 45 1.8 Connie. How late can you arrive?

Good luck with the sale.

Re: E5 and E10 petrol containing ethanol

To avoid topping up my 93 K Series with E10 I bought Super Unleaded, I think it's a B.P station just outside Wick. It was 155p per litre...ouch :cursing So the moral is to do your research before filling up, as that's what used to be called profiteering! I thought the Scottish Government was subsid...

On the bright side, not only have you found the root cause, your experience will almost certainly help a fellow member in the future!

And I'm sure a lot of people have been there, done that...........I neither confirm nor deny.........😚😚😚
