    Looking for caliper powder coating - Yorkshire

    LSN Coatings in Castleford get my vote. They have done plenty of wheels for me, and the upper inlet manifold on my Clio. I have spoken to them about calipers before, wouldn't hesitate to use them.

    Laguna driver trapped for an hour at 125mph with no!

    Holding the switch on an electronic handbrake will make the car do an emergency stop.

    Aftermarket bulbs

    Must be the ones to go for then, but not the Extreme Brilliance.

    Looking for a new snow foam

    Have you tried Bilt Hamber foam, I think "Autofoam", doesn't foam that much but has an excellent rep on dw for actually lifting the muck.

    Aftermarket bulbs

    On the flip side, I have had Bosch (standard spec) headlamp bulbs fail in as little as a month. Know what you mean though, Halfords "Extreme Brilliance" have had very short lives in my wife's CR-V, and were not perceptibly better than standard, nor were Bosch's uprated bulbs when I replaced one...

    Grumpy Twig the Jurno

    Picked up a copy tonight, looks like most of it is my buyers guide which to be fair I edited and sent over to him. Quite chuffed TBH! N0ddie - what should I do with the updated version, should I just edit my original buyers guide on here?

    I mounted the screen on the dash beside the A pillar and the controller opposite the start button.

    Ultraracing rear arb

    Stiffer front ARB made the understeer much worse, so stiffer rear should help. Stiffening the rear will usually reduce understeer in favour of oversteer, when it gets too much you start stiffening the front to counterbalance.

    People moving on from clio

    Don't you find the Clio a bit "easy" on track though? I thought it was great fun but arguably doesn't necessarily reward a skilled driver that much more than a complete amateur. I do occasionally miss mine but wouldn't have another due to the poor fuel economy and expensive component failure...

    Headlamp washers, which way around?

    Passenger nozzle sounds like a slipped seal, if you are careful you can remove via the arch liner, then dismantle and reassemble with the seal in the correct position.

    Help...where to buy?

    A pillar is probably not a good idea due to the curtain airbags. I was going to mount one on top of the clock. Or you could mount one in one of the centre vents.

    197 Manifold

    Problem is labour, worth trying for a contribution from Renault first, especially given low mileage. Removing and refitting the manifold is around 4 hrs work, plus the time to chop out the old flexis and replace with new, which isn't as easy as it sounds.
