  1. This appeared on ebay recently. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/394417810525 It has a W prefix plate, but according to the MOT check site was registered 26th January 2001. The listing doesn't mention it being a personal plate. As far as I can tell, it should be on an X prefix plate if it was first registered on that date. https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/results?registration=w215xae
  2. Was reading my Classic Car Weekly and one of the readers had put their car forward for the "value my car" section where they get an idea what their car is worth according to the experts. There was a 98 Rover sterling with around 60K on the clock and most of its history. They recon the value is around 3.5 to 4K and advised to get an agreed value policy on it. Same year (almost) as DD and know quite a few of our Civic M's are either 1999 or older so got me wondering if anyone here has ventured into the agreed value route yet with their Civic. I'm thinking of asking them for a value on DD just out of curiosity, as know the tossers at WeBuyAnyCar dot con (where most insurance companies base their values on now) value her at around £250! Which would maybe buy the alloys and bugger all else! Just with them getting pretty rare now, thinking surely the values (that they are actually worth) have gone up now? Don't want to get caught out if the worst happens so deffo thinking about the agreed value policy. Anyone got one on theirs and if so what value did you get agreed?

  4. We decided early on that when the mx5 went, we wanted another convertible, something fun and with character to replace her. After looking at BMW's (not really my taste) then Audis (could fall asleep looking at those) we harked back to when we had Carly, our 2nd gen Cooper. Loved that wee car! So the hunt was on for a 1st gen as I prefer the interior/exterior of them and also think the engines are better than the gen2.After travelling down to Durham to see a Cooper (that was a One!) with approx 57K on the clock (more like 157K the state it was in and the way it drove), we finally found "the one" (only it's not a one! lol) So that 1st one in Durham was an absolute shed, with a boot full of water, every panel marked, wrong interior and "Cooper S" badges all over its rear. It drove like a pile of spanners, brakes rattling/rumbling/knocking, suspension knocks and generally felt horrible. It was also only 90bhp due to being the One model. So that was abandoned and we were going to continue hunting for Coopers....then though stuff it, if we're gonna get one, might as well do it right! So the hunt was on for a cooper S!Called about 3, which all turned out to be apparently damaged/repaired but not logged and all had no history. then Gayle found one up in Aberdeen. It was one I'd initially dismissed as somebody had sprayed the dash inserts red and that looked tacky to me. Gayle then suggested "you're good at vinyl wrapping, could you not wrap them"? What a bloody good idea! So we went up to see it .........it has been sitting for a while as the chap bought it for his wife but she decided the convertible wasn't for her so he bought her Cooper S gen 2 hatchback. Even though its been sitting about (only done 200 miles since its MOT in April) he'd had the advisories from the mot fixed and she has all her service history etc. She's on a 06 plate with only 72K on the clock, lowest miles one we'd seen in our price range. First Cooper S I've driven and she drives spot on. No knocks from suspension or anything, engine runs sweet! We bought her for 200 quid less than asking price, so well chuffed. Pulled away from the guys house, half a mile down road engine management light came on!! Swear to god you couldn't make it up! We had her on a very long test drive, drove spot on! Funny thing is, even though we had a 3 and a half hour drive ahead of us, she drove it all faultlessly (apart from the wee engine light being on) Read the owners book and looks like it might be something to do with emissions? Thinking egr valve or poss lamba? Not sure but going to get her on the diagnostics to see. The other EML light goes off no probs so bit of a strange one. Anyways, she's not our daily driver so plenty time to fix, as she's only our weekend/good weather car.Sooo.......here she is, Dave and Gayle's 1st gen MCS R52 (also now known as "Poppy" lol) (these are just the photos from the ad) Well happy with her, hope you like!
  5. Going to keep an eye on this one as a bit of a barometer for where prices are. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255781375932?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=XAhmLVQZT5S&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=VPkI41u3Sse&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Nowt to do with me by the way, just saw it on Facebook.

    Just been reading this https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/technology/near-zero-emission-rotary-engine-could-extend-life-ices Sounds amazing - be good to see them start being used.
  7. Don't know what's happening to me but I'm quickly changing teams and have a new love for Toyota. Hilux surf joined the family last year and now have recently got an Alphard as a daily. I absolutely love it. However seems to have mixed opinions amongst my friends, obviously some of them don't get the JDM life. Gonna be a small project this one. Fixing niggles. And some maintenance. Few upgrades and some nice wheels at some point soon. Start with some pics of the beast.
  8. Hello Guys Just thought i would give you an update on the ol' MB6 Project. Ive been very busy as of recent sourcing panels for the restoration. Im very chuffed to find some Genuine Body panels including the Whole Upper sill and rear outer arch. Alongside that i have also sourced some Rear inner arch Extension panels where the Sills Meet the Wheel Arch. Unfortunately the Lower/Inner Sill section was no where to be found alongside the front outriggers but thats not an issue at all. i will be starting to Fabricate some New Lower/Inner Sill sections as if you don't know already the Civic MA/MB has Three Segments to the lower sill. The First part being the Front Jacking point section which starts at the sill then wraps itself round the front chassis legs and subframe mounts. Then there is the Middle section where the Front seatbelts are Anchored to. This section is Spot welded to the floor pan to create a sandwich effect (lovely rust trap btw). The Panel Itself is an L Shape as it also forms apart of the inner sill as its all one pressing. Thankfully the rust has not spread up into the vertical section of the panel as the rust has only ate away at the lower part probably due to all the water being trapped there. and Finally the Last segment being the Rear Sill Extension assembly which contains the rear jacking points and the Semi Trailing arm bush mounting. With Fabricating these lower segments it is pretty simple Its just a 90 Degree bend with a flange where the outer skin is spot welded to. With Rover at the time having a Partnership with Honda Luckily the 400 and 45 is the same car in terms of bodywork pretty much. Hence why i have bought Rover sills and Rover Inner Arches (they're probably cheaper too) and they will do the same job. Part Numbers if needed ALA120220 for the Side Panel (do note the side panel is a saloon not a hatchback as they are no longer available.) ALX140020 and ALX140030 for the Rear inner arches. The idea will be to chop the sill segment and rear arch segment off the genuine panel and to replace what is the rotten part on my Civic. With this i can maintain the original pressings of the panel such as the grommet holes. Hopefully in the New year i can get round to producing the Inner sill segments to be used.
  9. As title, what's the best Ecu for a standard b18c4 with full stainless exhaust system
  10. Sorry I’ve been missing in action, just been so busy I knew the FR was going to cost me money to pass the MOT. I can’t complain 210,000 miles but was looking untidy. David kept on at me to get a Jazz. My response “there for old folk” well fast forward a few weeks and hey presto meet my 66 plate 1.3 Jazz EX Navi. I absolutely love it. Can get 3 kids in the back (not mine) and the seat system is brilliant how it folds. No mods yet! Got wind deflectors to go on, waiting on tailored mats and then need to sort the wheels as 1 is badly scuffed. Not sure on whether to have them refurbed or save up for black ones.
  11. I had a look at MBs on Auto Trader earlier today as I often do. There are currently only three advertised on there for sale in the entire UK. That was using the search criteria "Honda Civic, Years 1995 to 2000". With how many were around a few years ago, this suggests they are rapidly disappearing. I don't think I see as many on the road around London now as I did even 2 or 3 years ago.
  12. Wondering anyone have any tips to why my boot wont close its not the latch or receiver. I got new ones and connect but when i screw the latch receiver down and close the boot it just wont close, but i do notice the latch receiver wont stay in place it falls down. Also when i close the boot feel like it shifts from left to right which makes me think its the boot supports but the seem fine. And ideas would be great. Thank you. Its the only thing thats wrong with my mb6
  13. Hi guys, so I still have the deck but it’s sitting on the drive looking sorry for itself right now. I decided that I wanted something a bit more tame as the wife is pregnant with our second, and I do some food delivering for my friends take away on a Friday and Saturday evening so I wanted something better on fuel... I ended up ignoring most of what I “needed” and bought myself a 1 Series Coupé it is a 118d though so it is a lot better on fuel I suppose, and tax was £30 for the year so that’s a win too. Not sure how popular this forum is now but I’ll go ahead and post up my progress with is as it goes. Ive started to find a few niggly problems with it the more I drive it and have it in my workshop but I suppose it is 12 years old lol. It’s got problems on the rear wheels with cracks forming, I had one repaired but a few have developed on the other side so I’m not going to keep chucking money at repairing the cracks I’m going to buy new wheels. I have managed to get round to smoking the rear lights already though, and put on blacked out side repeaters so they look pretty cool Anyway here’s some photos and I’ll keep posting as and when I do stuff... will be more subtle than the Deck.
  14. Interesting if this became a mainstream thing... Carbon neutral fuel with a power boost for a minimal cost. (assumes using hydrogen produced using renewable energy though). https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/technology/under-skin-carbon-neutral-fuel-also-cleans-air
  15. Hi ya'll this is my "new" MB2 Civic. Just bought it two days ago, and it only got about 90.000 kilometres on it. It's still very stock aside from electric windows (that I wanna replace with Ganador mirrors). My first objective is to get new wheels/rims, like atleast 15 inch, and find the MB2 OEM spoiler (if that even exists), and if not find something else that would fit without looking too ''off''. Then I'm planning to get a shortshifter, perhaps some body work too like a lip kit (but don't know what will fit for sure... maybe anyone can help?). And as soon as it's looking clean, I want to perhaps replace d14 heads with d16 heads (maybe even turbo it afterwards), coilovers, and as last maybe wrap it or something. Cheers!
  16. Was browsing the web and stumbled across this site. Know our Civic Aerodecks are getting harder to find for sale in the UK, but in other parts of Europe it seems they are still plenty for sale (and the prices are surprising considering the mileages!) Honda Civic Aero Deck used cars, Price and ads | Reezocar Just a pity they're all LHD
  17. Hey everyone Just curious to know if we're gonna be OK with this new fuel thats out now. Has anyone tried it yet?

    Hi all, Not sure if anyones seen this - Saw it on a Speedhunters story and thought it looked awesome. Apparently this was built back in May so people may have seen it already! Some more photos: https://www.topgear.com/car-news/modified/honda-bringing-wicked-type-r-engined-accord-estate-sema http://www.speedhunters.com/2021/11/a-first-walk-through-sema-2021/#_presentation-536683 Cheers, Dan
