    Still lots of love for Capri's, never been without one since 1981, had many over the years but only have the race car now, owned it since 1986 although I think the tailgate is all that remains from the original car. Out testing last year, first race in a couple of months after a long break..... Had a Granada 2.8i Ghia X back in the 90's, great towing barge....

    Um, oh dear ... I washed it today using foam, the two bucket method and put some more Perl on the tyres. I'll fetch me coat ...

    This was the last of four 2.9i Granada Scorpios I had over the years. I have no idea for the life of me why I sold it. Perhaps somebody put something in my drink, like water or something!

    It is indeed. Pcp eating into margins no doubt.

    530d belt snapped.

    Heater set to max temp and aux water pump will make some circulation. Most likely you can drive some miles before engine even reaches normal temp.

    Tar remover and elbow grease. Heating to soften the sticky pad can also help. I use an old hair dryer which I've kept to thaw out door seals.

    Brand new, genuine Hella drivers side headlight fitted to match the passenger side one that was fitted a week before I bought the car; mainly for OCD reasons Fitted a strut brace and a DIY air intake too for shits & giggles (but also as I damaged the OEM intake box when refitting it after doing the CCV and still haven't sorted a replacement; this will do for the time being)... Sounds great under load TBH Used the Meyle intake boot from a Z3 3.0 to delete the resonator too; looks tidier! The K&N filter I had in the garage fits into the cold air feed too which is a bonus!

    Fuel system cleaner

    Nope and when my wife rang and asked if the car was ready they said just washing it now, they hadn't cleaned it so shes due a complementary valet. I am going to check the dipstick to see if the oil looks new, you never know.

    Only in 'Murica...

    I didn't think I'd like Vegas it loved it. We hired a mustang (v6 sadly) to visit the Grand Canyon but couldn't resist a trip up and down the strip in it.

    Ordinarily, these things tend not to be mentioned, but, this thread is exactly used so that new threads don't get wasted listing smaller matters. I turned notifications off for that reason really, but still visit the site daily to pick and choose what I read. Simple. Also, we are a really friendly bunch on here. So much better than many other forums I have visited and binned off very quickly due to the abuse etc. I personally have no issues with reading what anybody considers news in this thread. It makes us what we are. Finally, there is always the off button.

    Vertical is normal. I believe bmw usa moved back to 10k intervals a few years ago. I do my own change in between dealer/indy visits which averages around 7-8k, as far as I'd want to go with a diesel before a change.

    Carbon Black ///M5

    Looks amazing that, would love the same done to mine. At the risk of sounding cheeky, roughly what was the damage?

    It's always horses for courses re cars and their looks; like clothes taste really. What suits one, won't always suit the other IMO; leave it as is, just drop it a touch on lowering springs and leave it be (well; that and a more burble based exhaust) It's so pristine that for me, it's best as OEM as possible, bar a few personal touches etc

    Matt Le Blanc to leave Top Gear

    Good... As much as a car fanatic he may be; he was too stiff and boring for the show The show's been nothing but shite IMO anyways For me, only Chris Harris is worth watching and the other dude is just a waste of time It'll be interesting to see who they bring on next; but I can only see the show being the same; boring, drawn out and generally painful to watch Don't get me wrong, TGT was painful at times, but it was still funny and enjoyable
