I've had new shocks fitted all round and a new n/s anti roll bar link fitted today... It's better and tighter. However seems to vibrate a bit more. Is that normal and because everything is obviously tighter---does it have to bed in?

In what way does it vibrate? Mine felt a bit more in touch with the road surface when I did my front end

Maybe ask at the garage that just rebuilt it?

You can use a hose pipe off cut like a stethoscope, one end to your ear and just point the other end at different bits in the engine bay and you will know when you find the offending item.

I had a very annoying noise caused by the exhaust a few years ago. The bracket which supports the bottom of the down pipe, from the gearbox (support, that is) had broken at the weld and that was vibrating. I found that by getting the car on ramps and just hitting things in the area with a rubber mallet and managed to locate the cause which would have otherwise been hard to find as it looked fine.

Had it at the garage today. Looks like engine mounts, as both have split and the engine does move. As it now has new shocks all round the vibration before could of been sent to the leaking shocks banging/old n/s link arm.

Anyway i am going to book it in with them to do top and bottom engine mounts both polybushed, while also getting them to fit a racing 4-2-1 manifold while it's there. Bloody cars!

After that just gunna try and clean her up, make her shine. Need to change this door too.

I intend to get a new timing belt and water pump but the hardest job I've done is my droplinks. I'm tired of spending so much money at the garage and I really wanna get into cars, but this is my daily.

For my Furio, I was quoted £100 for timing belt/new water pump fitted by my local garage I use. That was a year ago. Still thinking about it ha ha! But
Don't know if you have a VTR, VTS or Furio and if theres any difference for timing belts?
Nice looking car, better than mine.
Did a £260 Buy it Now on eBay without viewing and got lucky with mine.
Just normal service costs, new back brakes and rear box.
The roof peeled last year, quicky spray and lacquer to seal things. Bonnet now peeling!
Still a fun car to drive to work in!

Have a Furio with 185 alloys Usual trip to work. Usual idiots up my ar**e until winding corners section where I lose them! Onto A303, squirt past the 40 tonners going same way on inside lane of roundabout....love it! 80mph in crawler lane to pass last few slow ones. then 60 to conserve fuel.
Just love how you can drive out of corners in these.
Had some old Jap modded MPV giving it some up behind me. Absolutely blew him away coming off same roundabout going home.
This car has made a 52yr old into a boy racer!

Haven't posted in a while! Took my Saxo off the road for a bit as it was too loud for my daily commute to work, etc lol.... Been car shopping as well... Anyway, last thing I did to my Saxo was add rally mudflaps, to which the company contacted me to ask if they could use this picture to promote Saxo mudflaps on their site and I said yes.

You need to go to a nice scenic spot for a really good picture for the mud flaps lol. You're not going to get rid of the saxo are you?

My profile picture or whatever you call it was taken in london of my first saxo, taken on the road between horse guards parade and St James' park. And the bit at the back is the London Eye.

I can't remember to be honest. I just went around london centre for the evening and used the saxo for moving around. It was just framed perfectly for that picture making the eye look like a rainbow coming out of MOD main building lol. Just got another from when I drove off road up a hill near preston on Winter Hill, it's the TV mast near Preston if you've ever driven past. Stopped having the free time in the evenings but hopefully get back into it again soon. More of a winter activity because I go to bed too early because I'm getting old at 32 lol
