  1. That's what I thought but was thrown by the line at the end - "re-identifying of the engine to match the identity of the vehicle offered for sale." If I ever came to sell I'd be really tempted to get one of these done as part of the sale.
  2. Dead right - if I ever buy another one I'd want him to do the report! In fact I wouldn't mind him doing a one on my current car to see if it has any issues I'm not aware of!!
  3. Given the info supplied above, I've reported this to eBay.

  5. Is this them?https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182715388175
  6. Can I take these please? I'm away until the end of September - can you hold until then? If not then please let someone else have them. Thanks Roy
  7. I thought that was the case but wasn't sure - so just need a Boxster washer bottle and a plain valance ( plus of course your kit and probably the 'Pelican' vents). As you can tell I'm a master of procrastination!
  8. That's good info - out of interest did you have to remove the front fog light to allow fitting?
  9. Should add - look for a 'remote' wire in your instructions. That's what switches any amp.
  10. When I've had similar issues on other cars it's been no power to switch an amp. Never really delved into an IB system so may not apply!
  11. My Merc runs a torque converter and I'm sure the Mrs' BM does as well. Tried a DSG once and all was fine but it doesn't seem to do the 'lazy' mode very well - hesitant to take off so potentially dangerous in some circumstances and there were loads of stories about 60k need for rebuild. CVT's always make me remember DAF's and rubber band jokes! Nearly tried a Lexus which had one but that's he closest I've been. The traditional autos with torque converter still seem (to me) to have the edge if you don't want a manual.
  12. Agree with Phill - way too cheap. I would have had them as well and you know what a cheapskate I am!
  13. Got to say that sounds odd doesn't it. I suppose first check is the fuse ratings then battery voltage whilst running to check alternator output. Once you have these post them on here. The only part I can think of common to both circuits is the DME relay but you may not even have one depending on your setup so more info there would be useful as well. Lovely car btw
  14. Don't know whether they are still around but I posted this in 2014! (Stainless pistons) "Checked mine - they were from bigg red - www.biggred.co.uk Part number BRP234803SS and were £13.90 plus vat each almost exactly 2 years ago"
  15. You do but the issue was clearance as far as I know so 6mm to find in the wheel arch and 6mm higher on the road?
