Go the car back from the shop yesterday and it's all sortedKat's busted intercooler sucks, hope it gets sorted soon.
Sold the Turk E36 convertible in winter. Just be confident and put it online for what you would want in summer, and then throw in the summer wheels as a bonus. Or in my case, hide the summer wheels and sell them for another 900€This seems like a good place to draw a line under it and get back to normal automotive discussion, with everyone being a bit more considerate of the direction their post could take the thread and how it relates to the post that started the 'chain' of discussion. Along with that we should try to not take things too seriously and do our best to minimise political content.
There's absolutely nobody here I have personal beef with and given the chance I'd share a beer with all of you.

Edit: I feel like I should plant a seed of normal discussion so here’s one, feel free to ignore it: I’m planning to sell the Smart but I’m not sure when to do it, anyone had experience of selling a soft top on the wrong side of summer? Don’t want to lose my arse.
What are summer and winter wheels?Sold the Turk E36 convertible in winter. Just be confident and put it online for what you would want in summer, and then throw in the summer wheels as a bonus. Or in my case, hide the summer wheels and sell them for another 900€
asians love this feature, entering the chinese written name of city is way easier on such a touchpad than selecting the correct icon from a list of 10000I also have a useless touchpad between the seats just behind the gearbox selector, allowing me to move a mouse pointer of sorts between the touch targets and do multi-touch swipe to change radio channels, etc. I can also draw letters on it when entering stuff into the satnav. Enter a character, hear the GPS lady confirm it, enter another... no thanks. I'd rather use the on-screen QWERTY.

It sounds even better now with a fatter intake hose. I'm having trouble trusting it after the problems, though. I also have other ideas.Aww
I would just add that it did sound glorious at the meet.
Hopefully they're all sorted now, or rather for now. I paid £3K for the thing, have almost spent that again in a year and a half and would just like to get what I paid for it. No way I'm bringing it to the icetrackmeet, sadly.Is it still having issues? What are those worth? I mean that if nothing else, you could try and sell it at the icetrackmeet. From a ditch, obvs.
And if ever I find myself with the means to buy and run a decent example I may actually listen to them.Peugeot 205 GTi, 106GTi and 306 GTi-6 would like to have a word.
Oh the prices of 205 GTi's are stupid insane. Finding a pre-catalytic converter 1.9 in good shape is near impossible. I know a lot of sick people... I mean peugeot owners who are constantly kicking themselves for selling these for a few hundred just a few years ago.And if ever I find myself with the means to buy and run a decent example I may actually listen to them.
The 205 GTi 1.9 is a car I would love to own, but finding one here that isn't a complete snotter is a tall order. A few years ago I found a minter with 59k miles on it for £6k. Today you're talking £10k for one with 150k miles (240k km) and really good examples double that.
If you're being held hostage... blink twice.Laughs in supercharged MINI
That Rallye is a lighter version of the GTI-6, witch in some places was sold as a S16(not to be confused with the older S16 that only had a 5-speed transmisson and a 155 hp engine). The key is that the good one has 162hp and a 6-speed transmission.Can't find a single 306 GTi-6 for sale in the UK, at least not on AutoTrader, Pistonheads or Car and Classic.
