Misc parts for sale

Hello all. I haven't been here for a long time now. I sadly crashed my last 480, which was a lovely Celeb and sold it on to a friend of Soph's I think in France. Looked like it had to be, as he withdrew some money from a cash machine in town here and it had "480" written on it :D I've been driving a...

ebay trackday 480

Is this the same one that was for sale in Belgium I think not too long ago? Looks nice.

Does it have a body kit of sorts, or is the picture at fault I wonder. I don't remember the body coming out like it looks like it does behind the front wheel at the bottom of the wheelarch?

For future reference: save yourself some money and don't use ebay's extortionate picture hosting. Just put the images you want to use on photobucket or wherever else you want and link to them in the listing. You can use html tags, which are similar to the BBcode on this board. Just use <> brackets i...

Shame. Shame as well about all the cockups at ebay. Hope you can get all your money back from them and at least a good bit of your investment in your GT. Lastly, a shame I don't have the money to buy it off you ;)

Suzuki Swift, knocking

from the near-side rear. It sounds like the shockbreaker isn't seated properly and hits the body every time I take a left hand corner. It's ok when going over bumps in a straight line, not so much when going over potholes (can you see a trend here? Yes, roads around here are crap). I've taken it in ...

Lots of awesome looking cars going. But I shall remain strong and not spend money I don't have :lol: I think I still have some roller cover clips as well. Let me know if you need them, you can have them, they're only lying there as I don't even have a 480 atm.

Eh, Astra's really not a bad car. Only thing it's got going against it is common-ness. Not sure about 1.4 though. Just get a 2L diesel, you'll feel right at home :D ;)

Outlook is not your email account though. Outlook is only the interface. What is your email address domain? If it is a hotmail account, martin's suggestion is still the first thing to check. Also, just add Wilten's email address to your address book and that should (theoretically) at least prevent f...

Sorry to hear about layoffs and money-reductions :( I think there's something to be said for totalitarian rule in some cases. If they'd been able to keep this out of the "news", people would have kept spending as before and half the "credit crunch" wouldn't even exist. Then shoot the upper 5% of the...

I would think with the back seats down it should. I've had one of these Chinese lion heads and one of these drums in together. I find you are generally not limited by space inside the car, but the space available to put stuff in and take it back out again. Especially so if you want to not trash the ...

Haven't had one myself, but one of my collegues has one and the 4 and 7 button just stopped working on it. Apparently, this is a "feature" on these phones which shows itself quite often. No idea why, I have a D900 myself and it's been a brilliant phone all 3 years I've had it so far.
