  1. I seem to remember reading somewhere that a lot of modern car now have flat beams as standard. I guess it removes a cost of having left or right hand drive versions or having to include mechanics for switching. Also https://www.mot-testing.service.gov.uk/documents/manuals/m4s01000801.htm Says Flat beams are OK for the MOT
  2. I had the same problem and went with a remote oil filter I used a sandwich plate with top cover https://www.thinkauto.com/acatalog/On_line_shop_Take_off_plates_for_remote_filters_39.html I think it was the TOPO1C model (But I would check with Think Automotive - note the PC1 model does not work with 3.9's) And then something like RFH3A or RFH3B from https://www.thinkauto.com/acatalog/On_line_shop_Remote_oil_filters_40.html (again check with Think auto to make sure it meets your needs) Plus some appropriate pipe and connections This takes up 60mm to the centre of the top hat nut with the outside edge being less
  3. Two or Four post lift

    I've used a 2 post with a number of landrover and not had any problems I've not used a 4 post but as I see it:- A 2 post gives great access to the underside, easy to drop axles off etc But the downside is that for some things have the suspension at full droop makes things difficult and for some things having a cross beam jack would be handy. But a 2 post with a good selection of very large axle stands and hydraulic supports can negate the downsides of a 2 post. If you have watched Wheeler Dealers then I believe that Edd has always used a 2 post with hydraulic supports (even when they have done Landrovers)
  4. Er. Horn upgrade post (well additional tooter)

    Probably a typo from Nige or the seller (or the seller lying because a bigger number is better for sales) As most horns of this type quote 149/150 Db
  5. Er. Horn upgrade post (well additional tooter)

    Just waiting for Nige to go
  6. Er. Horn upgrade post (well additional tooter)

    We also fitted some to our bus for this same reason, but I would fit them as a separate horn switch or have a disabled switch so you can use the normal horns without the air horns. Also watch out I have seen drivers temporarily loose control when they are startled by the horn.
