Re: mot advisory

I have just had an advisory on my Wraith regarding the tyres because they dont have the E sign on them, this is irritating as they are brand new tyres fitted in the UK in October, it seems that the E sign is not a requirement on UK tyres but over here its mandatory, so no TüV untill my super cheapo ...

Re: The CV8 to EFI conversion compilation - so far

I agree. I would not call that a plumbers nightmare except in the original bending. The result is almost a work of art and is so clear and precise. Normally we refer to plumbers nightmare where there is a maze of pipes criss-crossing each other and it's almost impossible to see where each goes to o...

Re: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

I would never leve an automatic with a column change running if Im not sat in the drivers seat, I learnt my lesson with automatics about 10 years ago in a Range Rover that I left in neutral and forgot the handbrake on a slight decline, I have never run so fast in my life.

Re: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow
