Re: SEI 214 three door

Apologies must have been the other way round. I recall it was not right. It messed with the emissions terribly.

Re: SEI 214 three door

I had shocking emissions on my car - lambda sensor which is screwed into the exhaust manifold was shot. Apparently they settle at 0.45v output when the car is warm. Mine was up and down which apparently shows it is duff. Swapped it for a new one and it sailed through the emission test. Was hard gett...

Re: Really random idle revs

Where are you based? One of us may have a P-Scan nearby to help with a diagnosis. I’m in Leeds and have joint custody of one.

Re: 420GSi tourer engine vibration

So some good and bad news - thought I’d fit 2 of the mounts I’d bought today. The driver side mount was easy to get to - I took your advice, took the weight of the engine on the Jack under the sump with wood to spread the load, slid the reservoir out of the way to access the bolts. Undid the ones to...

R8 Door check strap pin - last one!

Hi everyone. This seller has one last door check strap pin. So if your door click-clacks open and shut, buy it quick! These are NLA at Rimmers. Found it by accident as we use the same pins as P38 Range Rovers. We’re upmarket like that! Fitted one to my car and it’s the right one. https://www.ebay.co...

Re: Head rest? Hmmm got to be a way to improve this

I remember the road tests at the time and the 416GSi thrashing the 318i e30. Must have surprised BMW. The E36 is a very nice car but the interior, seats etc aren’t as nice. I have both! Around 1990 my mum looked at a Cavlier 1.6 LS, Rover 214SLi and an Escort Ghia. The escort Mk5 was awful. The cava...

Re: Head rest? Hmmm got to be a way to improve this

I’m with you on that. If I hit the motherload it would not be a Maybach I’d get… probably a barn and most of BL’s back catalogue. 1987 MG Montego EFI, 1986 Rover 825i Sterling, 1991 Metro GTi, Rover 420 GSi Turbo saloon, SD1 twin plenum vitesse and maybe commission someone to recreate an MG EX-E for...
