Re: Experimental Borrani wheels for Series 1

Serge, no it wasn't me putting the wheels on eBay-Kleinanzeigen. I was also interested as a customer, but having practically new Daytons (2019) on my E-Type, I just wanted to know about the offer and the RW-number. It would not have been far from me to have a look at the wheels (Ingolstadt). The guy...

Re: Experimental Borrani wheels for Series 1

Dear Serge, the E-mail from Borrani's Matteo Bososio was forwarded to the vendor of the wheels by me. I was confused by the number RW575 and the single picture in the ad and had sent an E-mail to Borrani one Sunday night. The answer was in my inbox only one day later with more detail than I had hope...

Re: [edited] Spin on oil filter vs retrofitting OEM filter housing on Series 1

Thank-you, Steve, for your quick reply. Your picture looks like the one taken by Jan in post #19. Thanks for the confirmation! Without this plate, I would not even need a filter element :mrgreen: Now I need only the part number and/or a chat with "the usuals". There is still enough time before sprin...

Re: [edited] Spin on oil filter vs retrofitting OEM filter housing on Series 1

:helpsign: Dear fellow forum members, I am still confused as to which parts go into my S1 3.8 Oil Cleaner. Jan (post#19) shows a picture of a clamping plate that closes centre hole of the filter on the engine block side. Andrew (post#43) does not show a clamping plate, but only the pressure plate. A...

Re: Front Bumper - whats going on

To me it looks like a mismatched pair of front and rear overriders. The one in the picture on the right looks like a front R/H and the other one with the gap like a rear R/H; still sloped wrong. It could be a crappy repro.

Re: chassis 62

It does look nice! The AVON cross-ply CR39 Supersafety 640-15 are made for a top speed of 130km/h, according to the German AVON website. I thought already that this fits to a car that may not see spirited driving any more (like my 3hour drive today on narrow Bavarian roads - with 185/15 Michelins). ...

To dry the wheels after spraying them with cleaner and rinsing with water, I have followed the recommendation of a fellow forum member and use a leaf blower. Works great!

Re: Underdash harduras

I have a similar Hardura panel left over, because a very large 4 way flasher switch is installed on the left side of the steering column on mine. It does look a bit different, though and I got it from Aldridge. The straight edge needs to go to the outboard side of a L/H drive S1. https://i.postimg.c...

Re: Is the end near?

a couple of months ago, an AUDI A3 pulled up at a red light in the lane next to me and the young driver asked me, if my car is an F-Type, or an E-Type :?: . So it may be more a general thing; cars are not so important any more - the F-Type was surely younger than him.

Hi Marek, Just gone through this investigation process last week. My investigation showed that the only one that could say that it was 100% entanol free was Esso Supreme 97 RON. I was putting Shell V Power in my E Etype, but have recently found that it can contain up to 5% ethanol. Kind regards Mik...
