And you can get a rear bumper in the back (yes, with seats down, obviously!)...just, but it will fit!!

I love the fact that this is the new 'built properly' mini from BMW. 50k? Thats a joke, it really is.

Well done on a fantastic deal, by the way.

Any company big enough to have a call-centre, or 'head office' tends to treat people like this. Don't know why.

Well, yes, of course I do, actually. To make money!

I apologise for my get-out clauses!! I wasnt feeling very confident  ;)

I think your question's been answered already, but yeah, you should be fine.

Good point about the AR-bar, too.

Cant see a single reason why not. Though aren't the droplinks different...also camber angles a little different?

Certainly must be a straight 'swap', with minor fettling afterwards. Probably... ::)

General Car Chat / Re: Trade club card ?
« on: 01 July 2009, 01:57:41 »
It's great. I just ask 'oh, whats that on trade club, mate?' They tell me, I buy. Never actually had to show them my card..

Quite a good thing, as I don't actually have one. ;D ;D

I like dealers. Nice and thick, just how I like them.

Could you just confirm something for me? In what way will you get a V6 - I'm assuming your dad is going to give you his, because this is a 2.0.......FOUR cylinder.




Strange to see Opel's marketing, dont you think? Cream leather, alloys, Climate, etc.. yet the smallest engine.
Just bear in mind that '99 the new Omega came out, so for similar cash you could get a facelift...

It's not so strange really ,you see road tax is calculated on engine size over here in Ireland .
Opel had to fully spec the 2.0 and 2.2 's over here to sell Omegas at all.They sold virtually NO 2.6 ,3.0 or 3.2 engines due to the fact that annual road tax on a 2.6 is 1120 euro (955 ) 3.0 1293 euro ( 1102) and the 3.2 would be 1566 euro which is a whopping 1335 .
 Most Audi BMW and Merc models have 1.8 - 2.2 engines albeit supercharged or turbo'd.

Cheers for that. Ive known an Irish lad for years, we used to do nothing but talk cars til the early hours...he never mentioned it!!  ::)

Yep! Like when you park in that special place on the drive where you can put the door onto its second 'stop', without it hitting the wall and still get out ok....but you're getting to the nearside wheel today, so you park it well over, instead. Then confidently swing the door open, knowing that it wont hit because you always park in that special place; Oh, apart from today, becau-SMACK!

And then you're buying touch-up paint, that afternoon. Ah.

General Car Chat / Re: 295 a year to insure my alloys
« on: 30 June 2009, 01:27:43 »
You should consider leaving your policy alone.....then put aside the 25 quid-a-month (300 over 12months) for replacement alloys...

IF your alloys DO happen to get stolen (and how many times a year does that actually happen?) then you've got a spare set!

Another Top Gear Top Tip!

See what I mean?  :y It's just a case of knowing. Thats how my mate bought a 'knackered' fee-esta for a couple of hundred, changed the idle control valve (5 quid) and sells it for three times what he paid!

So what's the list of niggles/problems, then? Happy to help, feller.

These are damn reliable cars, in general. I've got to defend them, really!

Have a look around the forum. List your probs, I bet alot of them will be easily cured things, for not a lot of pennies.

Oh, and good luck!!
