Re: [Wanted to buy] Exige S1 Emerald

Emerald now sell an adapter loom so it should be plug and play. My car is standard apart from verniers and runs better with the standard ecu than it did with a mapped emerald. It did not for a while which I found to be a dead lambda probe. The problem with simple mappings for me was it not working o...

Bonding on the front oversills

I decided to remove the front clam on my S1 as the tow post is looking rusty and I was expecting a feast of rust. Two hours later and it’s off, never done it before. The bolts that fix the outer “wings” of the front clam sheared off the front oversills. I now have the oversills off and need to remov...

Re: New daily driver: Up GTI

I really like cars like that, probably from growing up with an old Mini (proper one). Love my wife’s Fiesta with a 3 cyc 1litre turbo. They claim 125hp, very small horses I think.

Enjoy the Up.

Re: Mid-life crisis II has arrived

I had a faithful A4 Avant which did everything I needed it to do, super low running costs and only one repair in 80k miles. Looked like new when it went. It was very sensible and economical, I somehow don't thinks yours will be either of those things.

Re: Dash on , but car wont start.

Do have a look at the MFRU. They are about £100 new but a scrapped one from a Rover should do the job. A faulty MFRU could (a) stop the engine starting and (b) stop it stopping once the engine is running. That was certainly true for lots of cars in the 80s and was how they got hot wired and stolen. ...

Re: Dash on , but car wont start.

I tend to agree, dodgy relay, connection, earth etc. Don’t understand why it would not stop.

Re: Elise Cup 250

Elise cup 250 is the natural replacement for the S2 Exige. S3 I Exige is a different car.
