  1. Never heard of them I'm living in Bradford Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  2. Theres no such thing as sold as seen from a dealer anymore , have a few searches you are more than covered especially on the same day! Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  3. I've never had this happen to me and ive drove a 330d full exhaust . And now I drive a seat Ibiza cupra twincharged engine with full induction kit and you can hear the turbo and supercharger spool up and dump like crazy and it's blacked out ish & lowered from the factory. Tbh there's a lot of nice modified cars around here but you never see anyone racing , a few quick stints to 70 on a dual carrige way sure but nothing crazy Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  4. Electric cars,boats or planes are miles faster and more efficient than the nitro stuff now. I used to work in a model shop, don't think I ever took a wage home used to have all sorts: 1/5th fg touring car 1/8th touring (nitro & electric) - fastest thing I've ever drove with the brushless in it was ridiculous! 1/8 buggy (nitro & electric) Several 1/10th tourers (electric) I used to race these a lot . Several 1/10 buggys - same story Several highly modified boats - almost won the nationals Many many planes and helicopters. Still remember the actual jet scaring the s**t out of me. A few rockets & tanks inbetween ALL gone now :/ had to get a actual job hence the marine engineering Btw if anyone has any questions technical or otherwise just ask I still know a fair bit Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  5. this sounds awfully weird I would avoid or atleast sort out a inspection before buying it. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  6. Ken kaniff isn't that eminems pisstake alter ego ? Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  7. Thanks guys. Yes it's a great car v light and the electronic diff is v good not what I was expecting at all it pulls you into a corner you can feel it a lot. The only thing letting it down is the exhaust note it's terrible so need to sort that asap! Apart from that it's seems solid. Keep wheel spinning in 1st and 2nd though need to get used to it haha Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  8. Yes mate it is seat menston, they were quite good tbh they cocked up on Friday by not checking it over but I suppose they gave me a car and some petrol. I think it's great especially in this car I drove the new manual version it's nowhere near as nice to drive the dsg box changes gear so fast! Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  9. So finally picked up my new to me 2010 plate seat ibiza 1.4tsi fr twincharged today and my oh my it shifts it's unbelievable quick, corners beautifully and is comfy so all in all I'm happy it has it's downsides some of the parts feel plasticity. Few pics below
  10. Laser lights you say..... Looking at Google oooo there cool will have to bodge fit them to my new seat ibiza fr and use the HID's as sidelights or better yet in the fogs so I can't see anything!! Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  11. This Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  12. I forgot to mention the tester is about 5-20quid depending where you go Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  13. Just get a compression tester they go in your spark plugs (pull all of them out and pull the fuel pump fuse) then turn it over for a few seconds record the average pressure then repeat for all cylinders best to do it a couple of times on each aswell then put the results on here if there's one significantly lower that normally means there's a leak Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  14. So went to pick up my 2010 seat ibiza fr twincharged and when they were finishing off the service they noticed the brakes needed stripping and cleaning (this seems strange to me anyone else?) So they gave me a 63plate Pergout 4x4 my word the semi auto box is so bad it's lumpy it's like I'm driving a manual without clutching nicely. What a difference to the bmw box and the vw dsg box. But on a upnote it does ridiculous mpg for the size Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
  15. Oh dear ...... What is this forum coming to All I'm saying is don't be a tit and fit HID's in reflector housings there not designed for it will cause other drivers to become v angry and possibly kill you and at v least flash there full beam while shouting at you Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 2
