  1. Are you sure it needs a magnet on the phone? Mine (although a different kind) just needs a metal plate. I lost the original plate so I just put a Stanley knife blade inside the back of my phone cover. Works great. I always forget it is there and have been through airport security at least six times - so much for security!!!
  2. Could I take the new pair of carpet retainers please?
  3. I did eventually find a tyre place who swapped the space saver onto the Fuchs. I have inflated it too but I doubt I will ever drive on it.
  4. I wish. Was originally in the UK, lovely car. Precision Porsche did the install, only down the road from me.
  5. I think I know that guy. 😂😂😂 It was a pleasure overseeing the install.
  6. Good to see you here! How’s that AC doing over there?
  7. I don’t even know what oil is in mine at the moment. I do know it is a Porsche recommended fully synthetic. I’ve run it on cheapo Castrol prior to rebuild and whatever Lee ( @targa boy ) at Octane Garage uses since he rebuilt it 37k miles ago. Never noticed any difference in running or temperatures and no drips either.
  8. Fair point. A lot of motor for the money. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163766140549
  9. I win, end of thread: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183980238681
  10. Not sure I’m brave enough to own one but this would be my transeurope express. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F123919552838
  11. I agree WC. Ditch the chrome and all white wheels a la Rothmans. Additional nerf bars in white too.
  12. Back to BMXs. The Raleigh ‘burners’ were still pretty heavy, not helped by the Skyway’s. 1980-82 I lived in California through the early BMX days. Nobody bought a bike, they were built, and it is probably what got me into engineering. Parts were all sawn down or drilled out. I broke the alloy bars on several occasions. I could lift the bike above my head with one hand (I was 10 years old). Im guessing less than 10 kg. I don’t have any pictures of my bike but it has been fun remembering and Googling all the bits: Frame and forks: R501 by local frame shop. Bought it off a mate for $45 which mum loaned me, took me ages to pay off doing chores. wheels: Araya 7X rims Suzue hubs. I later got some Z rims. They were meant to flex and return to shape but everyone landed hard on them to show off and they soon warped. Can’t remember the name of the rear sprocket but it was a ‘must have’ part. cranks: Shimano 600 brakes: Shimano DX Bars: anodised alloy with tough neck, AME grips. Other bits. Fluted allot Seat post, Suntour saddle clamp. Saddle was some flimsy plastic thing full of holes obvs. No pads except for the neck. When we returned to the UK, my best mate had a Grifter. I remember him trying to convince me he could do a bunny hop on it. Just looked it up - 35kg!!! Happy days!

  14. As per my last comment. In layman’s terms, water is 25 times ‘better’ at removing the heat than air.
