  1. In no way carry out the repair by using jubilee type clips....I did this and it cost me an bottom end engine rebuild on my S4s.....and I used heavy duty bolt clips, 2 either side of the joint. Get Pirtek to come out and do the joint properly. I was travelling at about 90mph on the motorway and the joint came apart dumping most of the engine oil all over the road.....I did well not to loose the car.....and they had to close the lane way to clean up the oil. I ended up spinning a big end bearing, and nearly destroying the crank. Hand to get the crank re-ground and as it was using oversize bearing from the factory it was a nightmare to find the correct over oversize bearings to suit. Now I'm running braided hoses from engine to coolers.
  2. Just get an engineering shop or even an alloy wheel repair shop to weld it
  3. Currently Insurance companies and the police can download the ecu post incident....they don't need to wait till 2022. Most cars post 2016 have this facility
  4. I'm thinking of doing the same with my wheels......what size rims did you go for?
  5. Hi Barry, I be interested if you're willing to sell. What colour is your bumper and what condition? Cheers Dave
  6. Hi all, does anyone know or have a S4s or V8 rear bumper for sale. Trying to source the original type rather than the aftermarket fibreglass type. Cheers Dave
  7. Why not leave NI completly and there wouldn't have to be a hard boarder.
  8. Buy a mechanical Stack boost gauge and plumb it into the boost circuit from the inlet manifold ...this will give you a real boost figure which you can compare to your electrical dash gauge.
  9. Barry....I've 25mm spacers on the rear and 10mm on the front is my S4s without any issues...and really fills the arches out nicely. When I get to rebuild my wheels...this is what I'll be increasing the size of my rims by.
  10. Looking very good Ian......you'll be amazed with the difference when you're finished. I used a manual vacuum pump in place were the aircon pump is......creates a lot of vacuum.....keep up the good work.
  11. Just wondering if you could remove the oil sender and attach an oil pipe line and pump oil into the engine under pressure....this should get to all the needed parts and also prime the pump.....when you know the oil has circulated....turn the motor over
  12. You could just search for the centre pieces and then buy new polished outer rims and inner barrels from this company.....www.felgenfuchs.de. I'll be rebuilding my wheels soon replacing my outer rims with new 1/2" wider rims this company.
  13. My hub snapped while doing 80mph on the motorway on the way home from the UK on the day I collected it...the whole suspension on the drivers side collasped....fairly scary moment.....did well to keep it under control....took a while for the smell of poo to disappear from the cab
  14. The rear brembo callers are the same ones used on the Renault espace
  15. The standard lotus rides too high and looks strange, even odd with so much air between the top of the tyre and the wheel well......I lowered mine 25mm all round and it looks so much better and gives it a wider stance on the road.....my next setup will be the Nitron racing shocks.....the best out there....LOTAC are overpriced for what they are. I think the standard height is 160mm measured from the chassis to the road.
