  1. If anyone is after a fun fast replacement for their Aygo, i can recommend either of these!
  2. Thanks both - not worried about theft around here. I'll multilock it if anything. WBAC was brilliant with the Aygo. Utterly hassle free and 750 over trade in, about 250 off private sale ..... Except no buyers to deal with. Will pop some pics up of new one tomorrow but as above, thanks for being a good set of folk and it's been a pleasure.
  3. Because that's what the model of the car is - or was because as of tomorrow, it gets replaced with a 2014 Fiesta ST3. I no longer need two cars so both the Aygo and the S2000 are off to new owners and i'll be either in the Fiesta or on the Z1000. Thanks for all the help folks, seeya around 🙂
  4. It's how they kept the weight / cost down - pretty sure the clutch is only just about up to the 67bhp as are the bearings and other components. When you come from a FIAT Seicento, cheap and tinny is relative :D
  5. *chuckles* If you stuck 4 really %$(ing fat people in there you could hit 800kg no bother at all!
  6. A nice subtle drop, handling / roll much improved / reduced.
  7. After carrying almost 800kg of sand / gravel / paving stones and other stuff back from B&Q a few months back, the time has come to replace the suspension. Picked up a Koni STR.T kit off Ebay for the princely sum of £250 delivered ( brand new ) so that will be going on over the next few weekends. Hopefully that will sort the handling out.
  8. Fitted a reverse camera ( had one lying around ) stupidly easy and stupidly pointless. Think this might get sold soon for a Swift Sport.
  9. Tbh @ 50 quid each fitted ... Whatever the tyre place chose. I'm motorways / A roads on my new 15 mile commute so they just need to be round :)
  10. 2 new tyres fitted, existing cheap Nexen 3000 **** had gone 50p shaped. They came with the alloys so not worried. Will replace the other 2 at the weekend and then that's all the horrid droning dealt with.
  11. Fitted in 30 minutes on the drive .... was expecting that to be a worse job than it was however the original silencer is FUBAR. The mount in the right hand wheel arch ( drivers side ) was just about ready to snap off.
  12. Picked up a brand new Irmscher ( From Irmschers ebay shop in Germany) backbox for a shade under £200 - there were / are two on Ebay for £185 and £195 respectively but both were > 3 years old and looked a little shabby. Figured i'd rather cough a tiny bit more and have new. I could care less how much power it doesn't have but i DO like the noise it makes, a noisy triple is a happy triple. edit - they clearly have more. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=262869917684#ht_1152wt_1397
  13. I wear mine out every 15k miles ..... it's had more discs and pads than it has had tyres, just.
  14. It was more of a joke about 100/80 being too bright but Hir2 being 80 percent brighter than 60/55 halogen is fine
  15. So .... Like a 100/80 halogen? *Gets coat*
