  1. I know I haven't been active in a very long time, but I am selling my MB, and I just wanted to ask a question to you guys! Have anyone of you come across and sorted out rust underneath on the front passenger side corner where the floor would be? And if so, would it take alot of welding or sorting out? Thanks, Kate .
  2. I just thought I should update with this... With much sadness and regret, I have sold my MB. She was just sat on my driveway collecting, so thought it was better for her to be sold on. Luckily, my friend was wanting a project - so it's gone to him . I have recommended the site to him.. You haven't seen the last of Rhonda yet, sorry! (Yes, she was named Rhonda. Not my decision, I promise)
  3. I know the previous owner of this car, there were some quite big problems with it when he owned it, and when he sold it on. I don't know if it's been fixed or not, but I know for sure it is chucking out white smoke and sounds like a bag of spanners being strapped to a donkey and being put through a washing machine. Just wanted to let you all know, before someone decided to buy it and didn't know what they'd let themselves in for .
  4. I know this is a really dumb question guys, but how would you read the fault code? Would you need to bridge pins or do something else?
  5. I was just wondering what I should do. I have a fault with the ABS on my car, and I was just wondering what would be the cause of this. I know it is most likely the toner ring, but what would I do if it comes to being replaced or if it can be replaced at all. What would be the beat thing to do, depending on condition of it? I will obviously be having a better look at it soon as my new years resolution is to actually get the car running this year and hopefully sell it ir keep it as my first car. (providing ob my money situation). thank you, Kate x
  6. Your car is absolutely gorgeous. May I ask, how did you get fitment like that? I am wanting something similar for my MB4, but don't know what parts or setup to go for. Love the color combination! Keep up the good work on this, she will be a dream when she's done!
  7. Thank you. I was looking forward to seeing how she turned out to, but with having no money and just being sat on my driveway - I don't think it's right. I would only sell her to someone who would look after her. I feel bad because I can't at the moment. I don't know what I will be getting after if I do sell. I might get a 1.4 if there's one for sale due to it being cheaper insurance. I will let you all know what's going on, and if I will be keeping her or not.
  8. I regret to say, I am thinking of selling my MB. I cannot afford to fix her at the moment, and she is just sat on my drive collecting cobwebs and rust - so I want her to go to a good home. She has a few problems, but they are fixable. I was just wondering what price I would get for her as she is. - Battery replaced and fitted. Just needs a charge as I have not been able to start her for a while. - Sump and sump gasket replaced due to old one having a hole in. - Rust cleaned up from underneath. - I have a back box exhaust gasket, rocker cover gasket for the car, just needs fitting. - I have done a full service on her, and she runs sweet as a nut. There are a few issues that I still have not fixed. - The brake pistons are siezed, but can easily be freed. - There is a little bit of rust on the rear drivers side arch. - The car "hunts" when gets to half warm. Will be fixing this soon. The car is SORN, but I am planning on getting her back on the road. What price do you think I would get for her the way she is now? Thank you, Kate. (I can upload more recent photo's if people are wanting them)
  9. Hey, I do not know if my car will have the DLC connector (the one in the car), or the connector that's in the engine bay. If so, where is it located. It's a 1997 MB4. If anyone could help, that would be fantastic . Thank you, Kate.
  10. I would either get them in the pink, or black. I don't know if I want to go for the "sleeper" look just yet. I would defiantly do that if I were to get these. I would also get some spacers. Too much space in the arch for my liking .
  11. Not bad, she's a good looking thing. Those wheels really suit it, good choice!
  12. Glad you like them, ahha. I am not a "girly" girl, and for me to choose pink, I must be drunk or something. But they suit the car (used Photoshop to see ) and they go with the color of the car. Make it stand out more.
  13. Brakes will be ordered soon, so there'll be updates on them. Exhaust will be replaced soon, but I will be getting whole system as CAT is on it's way out and there's holes all the way along the pipes. You guys may not like these, but. What I am currently saving up for
  14. I don't know. I am hoping that it is just because the brakes are balls'd up.. If not, I will be getting it diagnosed for sure.
