Re: Best hot hatch for £10k

I love hot hatches and have had quite a few in various guises. Depends what you want from it. For longer journeys and something a bit more "mature", the golf GTi has to be a serious contender. Polo is a slightly shrunken golf. For something a bit more fun, and a bit more driver focused, it has to be...

Re: Yokohama AD08R discontinued

Has anyone actually driven on the new compound? You never know it might be OK, gasp might even be better. Bunch of metathesiophobics. lol Admittedly the R compound ones were very good so its a tough gig for them... I doubt that there would be a dramatic difference, possibly not even noticable, but ...

Caution though - ScottA on here just got a pair from Tyreleader and the mfg date is wk15 2016.
Yea, was talking to Ronnie about that. He has a good turnover so doesn't hold stock for too long. Also, he stores them in the dark... apparently that makes a difference.

Re: Yokohama AD08R discontinued

Looks like Eliseparts are out of S1 front AD08R.

Re: Anyone know this s1?

Miles don't matter. Service history does. I would prefer to have a well cared for high miler than an under used under maintained low miler. Of course, it will not have as much value when you come to sell, but you win when you buy.

Re: fuel pump not working

Cobra alarm unit will be on the bulk head next to the ECU. Lucas immobilizer unit is behind the stack display on the dash board. Eliseparts do a wee bypas gizmo for the cobra unit (I have one spare if you want to borrow). The lucas unit is more troublesome. It sends codes to the ECU to say it's happ...
