    Pic of the day

    Greypaul are asking £365,000 for the Dino in the picture. In answer to Zagatoes, yes - it had very smart black leather seats with red stripes.

    Pic of the day

    Seeing as how Phil liked the photo of the Dino I did... I was back there again today, this time deliberately with my wide angle lens.

    Lowering 3200Gt

    I have had my 3200GT lowered (15mm - Assetto Corsa spec) but it was as part of a complete AC exercise as suggested by Davy where I swapped out the springs for the AC items (surprisingly half the price of regular springs), an AC steering rack, the SM ARB and finally a full precision geometry set...

    Brake Pads

    I didn't realize until reading this that there was a discount code for EBC Direct - I was going to buy some yellow stuff pads myself from them so (big) thanks to Newton I just saved £40! Terrific stuff...

    Exhaust pipe colour

    An MoT emissions test immediately reveals any rich running, even if it's not excessively so. If you had an MoT recently or the exhaust looked the same at the last one then you are fine, if the Mot's due soon then that'll do. If you are really worried (and as Zep suggested, you probably...

    Replacing the Audio System.

    Should be straightforward. The Mexico has 2 ISO connectors and a proprietry Becker connector solely for the CD Changer. It's very easy (Amazon/EBay) to get adapter leads from the car ISO plugs to Pioneer or whatever make you choose if it doesn't have ISO itself. Do not be fooled into...

    Audible warning on 4200

    I had something similar on my 3200GT where I got a very strange noise for a few seconds, no warning lights or anything the car continued absolutely fine. It turned out to be the death throes of the factory alarm siren or more to the point the internal battery within it. You don't normally hear...

    New tyres for my 3200!

    I just fitted a pair of Michelin SP4s on the rear (where a 3200GT needs it) to replace some P Zeros and there was a huge improvement. Michelin don't actually do SP4S in 265/35 x 18 just the SP4 but as Matt says the Michelins are more expensive. I had previously tried some Bridgestones as well...

    3200 rear shock absorber

    If you suspect electrical then it's worth trying to clean the connection itself - both the one at the suspect actuator and the connection at the ECU. Try and find some aerosol "switch cleaner" such as...

    3200 rear shock absorber

    When the ignition is turned on, each adjuster rotates fully in one direction and then the other to check that the adjusters are working and the shock absorbers themselves are able to turn and respond. If any of the 4 units refuse to comply then the error message appears. What is happening is...

    3200 rear shock absorber

    The electronic suspension is not fixed, it continually adjusts all 4 shock absorbers independantly during driving. There are 2 "maps", the regular map and the sport map (generally stiffer settings) where each map interprets throttle position, brakes and acceleration force in multiple directions...

    3200 AC ARB Group Buy

    Lozzer, I had my local tame (and highly trusted) garage fit the new bar - it was very important that a full 4 wheel geometry was executed afterwards because we had also fitted AC springs, 2 new front shocks and an AC steering rack. Over the years I have found that the 3200GT benefits from very...

    Brake pads 4200cc

    That was for the 3200. I thought as the discs were the same that the calipers would be similar enough or the same to have the same pads. Looks like my assumption may be wrong.

    Brake pads 4200cc

    I suspect FERFCP451H for the rear and FERFCP1298H for the front. Those are numbers looking like Ferodo part numbers in the listings in the Demon Tweeks website https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/ferodo-competition-brake-pads-ds2500-compound-ferfcp451h/...
