  1. Major IVA change

    Surely there are VW lumps we could use... they'll pass any test.
  2. Are you using "Total Car Check"? That's pretty good!
  3. Headlamp wipers

    My old Volvo 850 had headlamp wipers. Could you acquire some of those?
  4. Best Swivels?

    I tend to avoid Britpart stuff too, but I did buy their swivel housing replacement about 2 years, the teflon coated (black looking) one, and I can't fault it.
  5. I'd recommend he doesn't make it external... less trouble with the police.
  6. D5 - fixed!

    Looks to me like it just fills the void rather than cutting into anything. Either way, not my cup of tea.
  7. Thieves

    Scotland... according to the BBC weather map that's a small place in the north of England. :-p
  8. Flat power tool batteries - what to do ?

    Yes, indeed. Hand luggage only, and wrapped in original packaging :-)
  9. Flat power tool batteries - what to do ?

    Me too re. Ryobi... and, if you ever find yourself in the US you can buy batteries from Home Depot MUCH cheaper than here. I bought a pair of 4Ah Li batteries for $99.
  10. The horizontal one is a "return to centre" steering damper, which (as the name suggests) assist the steering return to centre! Useful if the car is lifted significantly and the steering geometry is off. It is easy to return all of that to 'standard'. But make sure you think about the implications... will the tyres fit the arches when the car sits lower? Are there other changes like caster-corrected radius arms, or trailing arms etc.? Hard to be sure, but those radius arms look a golden colour to me, that's not standard.
  11. Freshly Bled Brakes

    Could be wheel bearings... the wheel is slightly "off true" once driven so part of the brake pad pressure is straightening it up before stopping it. Whilst testing etc., the wheels won't have been moving.
  12. 300 tdi low coolant alarm

    I used one of these kits, although I'm sure it was half that price a few years back?! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Low-Coolant-Level-Alarm-12V-60mm-Screw/172766919492?epid=1488315648&hash=item2839b5fb44:g:89IAAOxyGxxSLdwA Simple to install, but does require holes in the expansion tank.
  13. EP90 Website

    Something like this... https://web.archive.org/web/20110519035353/http://ep90.com/index.php?id=28
  14. Need a Product name for my newest product !

    X-Shear (pronounced cross-shear) X-Axial (X, like stop, Axial = rotation)
  15. Question for any audio experts

    I did exactly what you're describing... I took a feed off of the cables to the rear speakers and fed them to the amp. No issues encountered. The challenge will be getting the tuning right, getting the right balance of cross-over, volume etc.
