Re: Would you buy a LHD classic.

Depends on the car really. If it can be gotten in RHD I'd rather have that but for something like a GT it being a left hooker wouldn't put me off in the least.

Re: Astra CDTI SRI 150BHP 2008 buying help!

Yeah ive heard of a few people getting that sort of miles out of them but in general I'd always say they are a 100-120000 miles item when you're viewing a car.

Re: Astra CDTI SRI 150BHP 2008 buying help!

You'll get a sachs clutch and flywheel kit for under €500 if you are the type to fit it yourself.
Labour would be expensive if you're paying to get it done; it's a big enough job

Re: Astra CDTI SRI 150BHP 2008 buying help!

To be fair dual mass flywheels are a problem on anything with one fitted regardless of the make or model.
I'd usually factor in a flywheel replacement around the 100,000mile or 160,000km mark. You...

Re: cutting out

Check the rubber carb mount for cracks (you need to take the carb off to see properly) they are a very common cause of this sort of problem

Re: Car wraps

They were like hens teeth when I got one in 2009 so I can only imagine what they're like to find now.

Re: Smell coming from Kadett C

Just make sure it's not your brakes. Put your hand on each wheel after a spin, they can be warm but not too hot to touch

Re: Terenure show 2015 5th july

Well I drive mine, that's part of the fun. Why do you have to stay beside it.

Re: 5 speed Gearbox option if any for Kadett C

Yeah basically a change of the ring gear and pinion in the diff at that back to a different ratio one. It would effectively change the final drive ratio of every gear but the right one will give you...

Re: carb engine

20e
They are 115bhp and weigh a ton. Still though you should find one cheap enough and it should be easy to fit.
