Re: FOR SALE: Rear bumper support

I did check to see if I had any other way to contact Bartek because when I eventually contacted him he said he wasn't getting notifications of PM's. Unfortunately I don't have any other email for him. Hopefully he'll be along soon.

Re: Genius idea or crazy drunken fool?

I think it's certainly worth a shot. I can't see them having an issue. I remember a time when I actually got all my VW campers old owners addresses from the DVLA! I managed to get in contact with nearly all of them and found out loads of history and interesting stories. A shame you cant do that kind...

Re: Another Bilstein B4 Topic..

Re: 29th Sept 2018 Hampshire Mobile Mini Meet

Just got back from an other great weekend away at the meet. Awesome to see everyone again, and huge thanks as always to Sylvia and Al for their hard work organising the meet and for their great company.

The plan now is fish and chips, then off up north of Norwich to our rented garage to retrieve Eva (Sven is in the garage w...
