Re: How to replace the rear washer nozzle - The Guide

Nice write up. Only thing I'd add is that in situations similar to that, where I know it's fairly likely I'm going to lose a nut somewhere, but only possible to get one finger in, I've always found it useful to wind the nut to nearly off and used a lump pf blu tack on the end of my finger to keep ho...

Re: Next meeting

I may be in.
May not be in a 480 by then though.

May come in the V8 XC90.
My I recommend the Snake Pass?
Mainly because it's my commute and it's pretty hilarious how quickly I can do it in the XC now :shock:

Re: front strut brace

What he said.

My old Celebration was lowered 40mm on new shocks, with 195/50 Toyos on Taurus wheels.

Looking back now, the ride was pants, probably not helped by the cheap springs, but my god it handled well for what it was.

Re: So, today was the day...

Think I may be the only person in he world who likes Taurus wheels without the centre cap. :nuts:

Think they'd look quite smart with a normal Volvo centre bore cap

Re: 480 Turbo for sale - £5500

Ooh... That it lovely.

A bargain, if some of the latest prices are anything to go off.
That should probably fetch £25k!

KGF Celebration

So, the recent KGF Celebration is now in a video by one of those annoying youtubers. The presenter gets on your nerves almost instantly, but it does show the car in a non-showroom lighting situation. Those rear lights look they've seen better days, obviously better than many, but for a getting on fo...

Re: Blinky 51/480

I've never quite gotten over the loss of my flame red Celebration (269) that David took on a few years ago, but it was massively too rotten to save. I may potentially be interested. Could you PM me some details and a price you have in mind for me to try and convince Mrs Sideways with? Cheers, Steve ...

B18FT and auto 'box

As above really.  Have a complete, reasonably low mileage B18FT attatched to an auto gearbox taking up space. Removed from a 440 Turbo, 1993 I think, about 6 months ago. Ran really well, nice and quiet, had about 80k on the clock. I no longer have any 400s, so it's pointless me holding on to it. For...

Re: Quick decline into the life of a 480 owner

Those wheels look awfully familiar... Did they come up with Jamesy's 480 by any chance??
They're off my 460!

Oh well, sad to see the end of an era is nigh. :(
Best of luck with your new direction, Jim. Hopefully you'll be able to take it easy now!

Hey Alan.

Not in too much of a hurry, so don't worry.

Could do that with the Spring pan.
