  1. Not sure about this myself, but when yours arrives would be interested to know. :)
  2. Hi Sam!! I have 17 x 7J OZ Ultraleggera alloys on my car and have fitted 225/45/R17 tyres on it - just to add to your confusion!! I would recommend you go for either 225/215 45 R17's for your alloys, whichever you can get the cheapest.
  3. I only opted for R888 as I have a dedicated set of wheels for track use. If I had to choose a tire for both track and road I would go for the Yokohama Advan Neova AD08. re body roll, after I installed the eibach/bilstein B8 combination I don't have any problem with roll. Have either of you upgraded your rear ARB too? I fitted a Progress one to mine at the same time as the Eibach springs and body roll is virtually eliminated.
  4. Hi there! Did you fit your Eibachs and Bilsteins at the same time? I've just lowered my car on the Eibach springs but still using the standard shocks, so am considering upgrading to B8's like you. I've had no major problems so far as they've not even been on for a month yet, but I have heard the tyres rubbing when going over undulating bumps at speed. Would appreciate your input on this. :)
  5. Hi Sheepscloth! Am intrigued to find out how you got on with your new track rubber, any pics of your day to share? Cheers, Si
  6. Gents, read my previous posts. I run 225/45/27 tyres on mine and they're fine, in fact they are only +0.4% larger than the standard tyres which are listed in the TSport manual! I'm 99% confident they will also be fine when I fit my Eibach springs as others have also been running this size without problems. Grtz, I think you need to clarify when you mention your speedo difference that it's reading 6% LESS than your actual speed.
  7. I'll have a go at answering your question fella. It seems to me that you want to pointlessly "modify" the clutch of a motor you haven't even bought or driven yet, undoubtedly making it worse to use all because you believe the dual-mass flywheel is less reliable than a solid one. You're asking this, even when you have already had a conversion job done on a previous motor - so one would have thought you might have a clue about how to find out this information yourself! What makes you believe this "improvement" to your car is any more valid or relevant than the EXTENSIVE work KP or Luke have done modify their CTS? You're a touchy, internet forum troll who it seems loves to disagree and belittle people answering your pointless questions on here, most likely because as a man, you are hopelessly inadequate. What makes you think you can talk to people like that after your 7th post? You sir, are the one that needs to grow up.
  8. Recently I was chatting to my OH's Dad who is a mechanic and he suggested using a product called Holts Radflush to flush out the cooling system and heater matrix. I've bought myself some and am planning to give it a try, so I will let you know how it goes.
  9. Any chance you or GazzyG could share which one it is and where it's available? Cheers
  10. Further to my last comment, here's an interesting article from the Toyota Estima Owners Club that discusses some principles behind the levels of water to coolant mix and the benefits of using distilled water instead of tap water to fill up. Mixing Toyota Red Coolant with Water Food for thought?
  11. I think we're all agreed that if you own a Corolla from this sort of era and you're suffering problems with the heater, you have nothing to lose from performing the reverse flush procedure. I've still yet to do mine and am regretting not getting it done, the !Removed! thing takes ages before it manages to start chucking out any sort of warmth!!! Given that the majority of the UK is either hard/very hard water, it's safe to assume that the troubles can be attributed to the build up of scale on the matrix. I'm not sure if there's much you can do to prevent it from happening? Maybe someone else here has a better idea.... Urgh, Radweld. I've not seen too many people recommending this stuff, especially since it's only a temporary fix for what could be a rather serious problem. Coolant pipes do go straight into the heater matrix without any interceding valves, etc.
  12. Yeah there's an option you set when you enter your fuelling data to say that it's only a partial fill-up. This Fuelly FAQ will probably answer all your questions.
  13. Indeed it is. If you've signed up, where's your signature logo (like mine)? ;)
  14. I'll second that, the new one definitely looks like a rear coil spring.
