Unfortunately my Brazilian contact lives in the UK. For the next couple of weeks, at least.

(hehe I have one of those Brazilian thermostats with the removable stat module, still unused and in its original box. But it's not for sale tongue )

As it turns out I have decided to go with the 20VT alloys, they looked amazing and made me 100% happy with my decision and also 100% optimistic they will go great with the car. It's a pity about the 17's, at the time it was what I was after, although things change over time and this is just one of those things. I don't think I'll be able to sell them even at the very low price I have them up for, upon closer looking when I took them home today there's more bits of damage so it's likely I'll just end up settling for scrap value if nothing happens in a week or so. The Pirelli P Zeros they have on them are probably of more interest ironically. At the end of the day when personalising stuff like this not every decision you make works out as planned. I have learned though after trying it one other time that I just don't quite fit with aftermarket wheels, I always end up going with a nice stock/OE styled one so I think I'll just keep it that way.

The 10mm spacers at least still have use as they are going to be used with the 20VT alloys, big thanks to Gareth at Northern Alfa Performance as usual. He's done a great job at custom maching the spacers so they can work with the original wheel nuts/bolts.

It is starting to come together a bit now at least, as can be seen with the new grooved MTEC brake discs that have been fitted now that area looks a lot better now. I've ordered the tyres today (UniRoyal Rainsports), they tend to arrive fairly fast from the place I get them from so I'll be bring the rest of the wheels and the tyres over next week in which they'll be fitted on fully when the cambelt and full service is done later next week.

After that I should hopefully be receiving the brake caliper paint soon to go with the Fiat decals that have already arrived which will be the next job, along with possibly investigating a slight leak on the power steering pipe.

Bloody hell Graham that is a plan. Thank you, never thought of that chinny I was hell bent on thinking what a fanny about on getting the shock absorber off the car, I did indeed miss the obvious. Thanks again.

I love this forum... laugh

I went to the theatre once and halfway through the play, all the actors fell through the floor. I'm sure they were ok though. They were just going through a stage.

A couple of weeks ago I added a 20VT to my multi car insurance with Admiral, but I didn't proceed with the purchase so cancelled a couple of days later.

They charged an admin fee. And of course the insurance was covering me for a couple of days so I guess they have a right to charge me for that. I know insurance companies front end load their charges too, I suppose to discourage cancellations half way through.

Looks like standard practice in the industry, but doesn't excuse the attitude of Flux.... Our campervan is insured with them, but no problem so far....

What can I say, even a broken clock is right twice a day!

Glad you got it fixed, it's a horrible feeling hitting the brakes only to have the car start doing it's best impression of an overfilled washing machine

Thanks, Gripped. A friend had a Peugeot with the same engine and the same problem. His turned out to be the brake vacuum pump.

There is life after coupe ownership.
There are also much easer cars as tools to live with day by day.

The choice was taken out of your hands but I'm glad you didn't go with the Citroen, anything other than a Citroen would have been fine!

I'm currently back in a 16v coupe while I try and save the Porsche and a panda from the salt roads here.

Hope your well smile

Glad to see things coming together for you MRS on track. smile
The Lydden track video gives the impression it's nearly all uphill most of the way around!
Continued success for the rest of the season.

I moved to Direct Line some years ago, their quotes are good but it may pay to look at their renewals, I found if I completed a new request (for the same car) their quote was cheaper than the renewal. Green Flag are the same.

Incidentally in terms of write-off values, my best experience was with Tescos on my GTV, initially they quoted a low figure but they agreed to look on Autotrader and came back with a figure £1k over what I'd paid for it and over the insured value.
