  1. i hope you didnt think my comment was towards you.
  2. do explain why you so offended by me or anybody else tryngto help . its great that you have tried to help the chap, however would it not be even better for others to try and assist him try to gain as much knowledge as we can so that he can finally get his car back on the road. fact is, if hes able to contact a scrapyard no matter where in the world, they get close matches to the model and year, weither it be salsoon, hatchback, estate. all he needs are the vin numbers of each and to be told if the part is on that car , so that he can then pass the details on here, we can then both see what we can do with toyota etc, and we might get lucky with a part from another model might infact work. and if not, then we try to figure out another way
  3. the chap from the parts department here i the uk has said the following "if you have a vehicle you are looking at taking it off of, i am more than happy to check if the numbers are the same. will just need a chassis of the vehicle its coming off of "
  4. got some further info and this time from toyota themsleves, the 60 version is for abs so do you have abs on your or not? also been advised the other option is to get the part from another car ie scrapyard
  5. so the 110 one is the correct one for right hand drive. 47900-20060 is for left hand drive. unless you tell me your driving a left hand one. and yes i know the issues regarding parts, i had to import my bolts, brake pipe from i think germany.
  6. by the way where are you located
  7. do you know your vin number
  8. absoloutely nothing stopping him from adjusting the search function on both links. and i myself know the stock and number maybe a hit and miss, but the resources are there and even toyota themsleves get it wrong as they had done with myself. https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/carina-38486/st191-56145/st191r-bwmnkw-920383 https://toyota-europe.epc-data.com/carina_e/st191r/3732/chassis/
  9. this should help for future https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/carina-38486/st191-56145 https://toyota-europe.epc-data.com/carina_e/

  11. based on what evidence, if anythig they are miles better than the standard dampners and springs.
  12. it has a speed gear which could have started to wear out . you also have speed sensors on the wheel i believe
  13. Toyota Carina E GTI T190/ST191 (92-97) BR Series Coilover taken out the box by mechanics not fitted, simply becuase we purchased by error as my car is a carina cdx e not gti, and this kit is missing the bracks that the back have to fit on which i presume somebody could weld a bracket on. i was originally going to pay to have the bracket welded on and have the setup on my carina, but ive come to the more sensible decision to sell the kit, sell the car and get another one as we have already plouwed in over 3k in repairs since 2018, which include new clutch, full sevrice, new cambelt and waterpump, new dampners and springs. £700 including shipping which no doubt will cost in the region of £60 as it would need to be insured etc. retails at £849 if you wish to collect thats fine location sp3 5jz (fovant) The BR series coilovers use a large 46mm diameter piston in a 53mm diameter damper body to maximise oil capacity. As the damper unit opearates the oil contained within heats up. The viscosity of oil changes as its temperature varies which can lead to changes in the damping characteristics of the unit. BC Racing only use a very high quality oil with their coilovers but go that extra mile to maximise performance and build their BR range with a large 53mm diameter damper body. This increases the capacity of the unit which increases the volume of oil contained which in turn reduces the peak temperature and so significantly improves damper performance.
  14. there are unfortunately times when you have to treat your family or friends like a pet when they are ill, by ordering them to sit/stay/lay down so they can actually recover. pride within them is strong, but priorities a big scewed

  15. even in the dark my neighbor noticed my beard had gone before anything else lol
