    Cool, thanks for that. Any particular make I should go for regarding coil packs ? I think one of mine is on the way out

    Noob question

    Just a quick one I have a 6 cylinder petrol engine. Which cylinder is number 1 ? Is this the first one (grill end) or do they start at the windscreen and work forward ? Noob question I know

    Will these fit ?

    I would rather sell them on than get that new one powder-coated Dan ! The polished lip is the look I want because it will enhance the width of the lip. Breaking through the powder-coat will be the problem I think ? I do have a spare wheel to practice on One refurber suggested bead blasting but could not provide anymore details ? What I need is a good old fashioned wheel polisher non of this new fangled diamond cut malarkey ! On a sidenote, I could not even polish my headlamps (even with a 3m kit and buying extra pads) and had to get a professional in to do it at the end because I could not get it 100%

    Will these fit ?

    I really am starting to wish I had never purchased these Breytons I seem to be getting nothing but heartache and frustration with one problem after another ! Firstly I had the buckled hub on one of them Then problems trying to get some center caps that actually fitted due to their oddball size. Now I cannot get the lips polished as I want (I don't want diamond cut) Just got off the phone after phoning (nearly) every wheel refurber in Bristol !! The problem is my spokes overhang the lip almost at the point where they touch the wheel. A diamond cutting machine will not get into that little crevice anyway and according to one wheel refurber there is not much call for polishing so they sold the machine. The brand new wheel I purchased from Germany came with a polished lip but the others look to be powder-coated inc lips.
  8. Where did you get the brace from Dan ? Any noticeable improvement or is it early days yet ? Smashing work but maybe you need to take that other headlamp out to fully benefit the cold air feed

    Tickover and start problems

    Had a chance to plug my cheap scanner in today and this is the only code that’s popped up !

    Tickover and start problems

    Thanks for the input Dan I really need to get the codes read but I can rule out the battery and intake pipes as these were all replaced within the last 8 months. Im going to get it booked in at my mechanics for next weekend and see if I can get some codes read as all I have is a simple Creator C310+ scanner.
  15. Weird one this ! About once in about fifty times my car will not tickover. Always starts 1st time on the button. Every now and again it will start (but doesn’t sound quite right) and it will tickover but the minute you touch the accelerator pedal it cuts out. Sometimes I can get it to rev through the range (with no misfiring) but as soon as the revs come back to tickover it will cut out. I haven’t yet checked the codes but when it does this there are no lights on the dash. Repeatedly turning on and off for 2 mins and it then drives perfectly again with no misfiring and no loss of power Its an auto so it’s most annoying as it starts ok but the minute you put it in drive and go to pull away it cuts out ! At first I thought maybe fuel pump is playing up, now I’m not so sure and thinking coil pack intermittent problem.
