  1. well i have 2 other cars, a boat , a wife, and four kids. once they tag a few extra days on the end of a 7 day week i might think about something else., but at the moment i simply dont have the time for more cars. i struggled to the let the esprit go but i couldnt justify having that amount of money tied up sitting in the garage. but it gone to a really nice guy and i hope he enjoys her as i have
  2. well its a sad day.... iv sold my esprit v8 Reg V8EEE. shes been a bloody good car and only let me down once with the gear box but i will take 50 % of the blame for that one. unfortunately i never had the time to use her so i made a difficult decision to let her go . she will be missed. shes shortly making her way up to the midlands to a really nice chap graham and im sure you guys will make him welcome as you did with me. im sure he will pop in to say hello......see ya all steve
  3. indeed bibs i love the car but just dont get the time to use her so i put her up for sale. if she sells fine, if she doesnt i still get to use her. she has done less than 1600miles in 4 years. to many cars not enough time
  4. well i was unlucky.... i blew my second gear out of the dartford crossing traps. i now have a gto quaife gearbox and it will take full power in all gears. its nice to be able to open it up without clenching ones ars cheeks waiting for the bang !
  5. does anyone know the gm part no for the indicator / high beam stalk for 2000 v8. it looks very much like some used on astras but im not 100 % sure
  6. sorted..... one of the ecu chips wasnt seated in its carrier
  7. any suggestions welcome i start my 2000 v8 esprit up every week without fail. today i jumped in and noticed straight away i couldnt hear the fuel pump prime up. and yes it wouldnt start. so far i have found the following i couldnt scan via the obd socket no connection detected the engine managent fault light doesnt come up on dash when ign is turn on iv checked ecm and both primary and secondary fuel pump fuses i can fire up both pumps manualy via relays but still cant fire up there is no feed supply to the two pump relays from the ecu orange / slate wire and orange / purple the ign relay is active hoping i dont have an ecu fault any common faults known bad earth ect
  8. blue 1988 esprit turbo 12.45 today henfield to shoreham c1 *** whos cruising my turf..........
  9. i fitted a gto gearbox with lsd last wont be disappointed it is superb allthough its not cheap. you can use power with confidence and gearing is so much better, more so with 4th and 5th......worth getting the lsd too
  10. correct me if im wrong i think the speedo picks up the pulse of the front wheel abs sensor. ecu knows what gear your in as it calculates revs vs speed. thats as i understood it.
  11. or get your glamourous assistant to take your car in for the mot . that usually works
  12. i seem to of been demoted to a menial basic member. payed my dues but still down here with the peasents......
  13. the clutch is not that old and the plates are thick. i blew the crown wheel and pinion
