Hardly a staggering price,-its about time the big saloon got a bit of recognition and was valued accordingly, just look at the value of run of the mill Fords etc,- makes you realise how cheap our cars really are. I saw today a Mk1 that was up for sale at circa £13k, probably wildly optimistic, but c...

Re: Tyre sizes

you could probably go up to 205/55 but i would suggest 195/65 would be better and give a wider choice of brand. I assume you have already checked clearance issues on the rear arches,-7 inch rims might be tight on a mk2,not a problem with mk1 arms of course,

Re: Fuel economy

so.., the red warning light indicates about 2 gallons remaining in the tank?. I wasn't sure because the actual gauge , on my car, was reading empty and the red light indicator was flickering on and off. It might explain why i could only fill to 55 litres,-in theory there be could another 15 litres i...

Re: Mk1 2000 mo/d saloon.

I sourced a good replacement tank and this was installed with a new sender unit from Mr W. The original was in a poor state, as was the tank, clearly 30 odd years of doing not...
