Re: Cam belt 8V

If you have the alternator and water pump out you will have a bit better accsess in that genral area of the engine bay. if you think its a good idea to change the cambelt you might as well i guess.

Re: Signs of fake BBS RM Wheels

What price are you paying for a restored set? i've seen ones that need work for about 800 quid so im guessing into the 1000-1500 range?

Signs of fake BBS RM Wheels

Looking at getting some BBS RM wheels for my mk2.

What should i look out for when buying them. What shows me they are fake and what shows that they are genuine?

And what price are you ideally looking at for a good set that have been restored and dont need work doing?

Cheers

Re: Engine Cuts Out After Sitting Still

Your heater matrix might be blocked up which wont allow the coolent to run through it or the flaps inside that change that change the hot/cold might not work and change direction.
