  1. Hi all. The time has come to say bye bye to my lovely R estate. The new purchaser absolutely loves it…..as I did. After carrying out the mods on it and achieving 438 BHP the car was the quickest and most enjoyable one I’ve ever owned. Times have changed and my new location involves travelling about 0.25 miles over rough common land to get to my house …hence the sale. It’s been a pleasure being a member of this club and would like to thank you for your help and support. I have the original suspension, turbo core ,downpipe, exhaust, x2 Scorpion res delete pipes which be for sale at very reasonable costs if anyone is interested. Until then, I shall look enviably at passing R’s.

Superpro 24 mm rear anti-roll bar + Superpro droplinks. Turbo Technics intake elbow. Wagner intercooler. Littco 380x turbo. Scorpion race cat downpipe 3".

  3. Have you checked for a small stone or nail in your tyre?
  4. Car is looking good. Half a century tomorrow. Happy birthday!
  5. It might be worth posting some photos of under bonnet components. As an example the air intake elbow which runs from the air box to the turbo.
  6. That’s what I call an informative write up. Both good and bad points highlighted for future potential purchaser!👍
  7. Well, to be honest I am stage running 1 Unicorn and car is producing 377BHP. The service is second to none, They have an accurate rolling road, and the car drives brilliantly. I am now going to go stage 2 and will definitely use Unicorn again.
  8. I have Superpro 24mm rear ARB set on low. Also have end links, perfect for my driving style 👍
  9. Brilliant. Roll on the vaccine, return to some form of normality, and most of all...clearance for you Mr camelsac2002. Happy new year to you all!
  10. Thanks Marshy, I’ll look into it.
  11. ToRnado_R Thank you. I’ll get it checked.
  12. My car is a Mk 7R estate 2016 with non electronic suspension. I hit a pothole yesterday and the car seemed ok. Today there is a loud knocking noise over bumps. I think it is the shock absorber so looking to replace it. I have eibach springs to go on the car. Has anybody fitted new shockers that they can recommend? Thank you
  13. Yes ARB already fitted. I went for a Superpro 24mm. It certainly tightens the rear end up and seems to improve under steer. Still waiting for springs to be fitted.
  14. Mine is cast aluminium in black. Tried to photograph the area I’m talking about but difficult to see clearly so I hope this following description helps.... Open the bonnet, on the battery side of the car, look downwards in front of the radiator and just below the intercooler white plastic location clip you should see large lettering / numbers. If you go onto Progressive Parts website and type in Wagner intercooler you will see the number on the 3rd photo from the left.
