Re: S1 Original brake performance

How are the brakes plumbed into your servo. On the early 4.2 cars, the rears came on before the fronts. Check your plumbing.

Have to say Jeremy, posting a picture of your car on your front drive is a bit ostentatious!

Re: Calling all Opalescent Gunmetal owners

Mine is Opalescent Silver Grey too which is a lovely colour. It should have a Green tinge to it. Be careful if you go for gunmetal - I’ve seen too many cars with too much metal flake in it which just doesn’t look right.

Re: 3.8 brake & clutch reservoir leaks.

I would not recommend going over to silicone without replacing all the rubbers in the system. (We wouldn't do it). However, if a,n. other company have done it successfully numerous times.......

Re: oil pressure sender calibration widget

Hi Serge, try calling them on 01639 732200. I think the quality is excellent and matches the original. I would post some photos but can't. Let me know if you need any more info.

Re: oil pressure sender calibration widget

These guys do a capillary gauge that is pretty close to the original. Needle is ever so slightly shorter. We only fit these now.

Re: Works time estimates - indicative

Can you do a video of you changing all 4 wheel bearings in a morning as well James? Can’t see how you can set/check the end floats or reshim the rears in that time!
