It could be detonation due to a failing injector, if it overheats the ring it'll drag down the cylinder as shown in your underside picture.

Thinking that prospective buyers might like to know what power you ran it at for the 10k miles and perhaps what you think it would engineered to take?

If you have a blue plug Alan you've bought the correct sensor.

I agree with the above that the "rush" to small capacity petrol engines is all very well, but the fact is turbo diesels are still more powerful in the real world IF you also want good fuel economy. They've refined diesels over the last 20 years to the point where they outperform petrol (IMO) the instant grunt for overtaking and relaxed motorway cruise for example. And with modern DPF, AdBlue etc, they are far less polluting than before.

I love the lazy torque of a diesel and i think they would suit a 4x4 car better.

There is a move to penalise diesels, but given that they probably still make up a large proportion of UK cars, it'll take a while to phase them out.

On the other hand, fizzy turbo petrols are great fun to drive, but you don't generally get the fuel economy.

Petrols have some catching up to do, but nowadays the efficiency will be achieved by going hybrid.

Today I've booked the shuttle for this event, plan to go over on the 12th so I can make a long weekend out of it returning on the 15th, present costs are £146.00 return which is £20 more then the ferry, reserved a chalet at Eau rouge, it's been 5 years since my last visit and I've been reliably told it's a great event again now so looking forward to it.

I gave a call to my garage and they told me to change the heater matrix that probably after 24 years some pipes are obstructed

It is quite possible that the veins are blocked, and if it's that old it won't do any harm renewing anyway.

As a quick test what temp are the matrix lines going to the bulkhead?

Bumping this thread......

After a couple of months of looking for a replacement for my trusty Audi, last night I drove home in a Focus RS. I'd looked at a few different cars - A45, S3 Golf R and a TTS but plumped for the RS.

It's a 17 plate, 19k miles, one owner, Lux pack, Winter pack and forged alloys. It also has a ceramic coat so the bodywork is 'as new' The interior is immaculate with no bolster wear and rear seats that look like they've never been sat in.

Like Gunzi I'm going with a Dreamscience map as they get good reviews. I'm also booked in for a Ghost immobiliser.

I can't wait to drive it properly laugh

Noticed this advertised yesterday. Might consider popping along April 12th. It might be a good replacement for Horsham show.

Anyway, maybe you've considered using polyurethane to fill in the gaps of the rubber? Maybe even spraying it afterwards with grainy spray?

It doesn't matter if it meets another standard unless it is an accepted equivalent. If it does not have the "E" mark etc., it will make the car "illegal/unrodworthy". Track standards don't usually translate to road ones and they are much stricter here that in the UK, etc. Better? Well it will be a light, floppy plastic window. Safe for racing but not what you want on a restored "near-classic".

The bill for this restoration is already enough that spoiling the end result with bodges to save a few Euros is not an option unless a part really is not available. Getting a good deal on parts or only replacing what actually needs replacing is the target. The glass surround/seal is what I need but it appears not to be available.

Grainy spray looks great when new but fades quite fast, again spoiling the look. OK on items you can remove and redo but not ideal for glued-in window surrounds.

Full service
Exhaust manifold gasket
