    Bit of exhaust **** .

    Just got these back on Sunday . The plan was to fit them today but the rain kind of stopped play , I jacked the car up and got the wheel off ok but the wheel arch liner was a different story , then it started to rain so I bunged it all back together and put her back in the garage . At least I...

    4200 Spyder back box removal , ‘how to ‘ thread .

    Hi All . Is there a ‘how to’ thread for removing the exhaust back boxes from a 4200 Spyder ? I have searched but not really uncovered a good step by step guide . Just wondering if it’s worth having a go myself or take it to my local garage , has anyone done this themselves ? I do fancy giving it...

Originally the plan...

    Air bag wire orientation.

    Hi Guys . Removed my 4200 Spyder steering wheel the other day and sent it off to be ready trimmed . I have re-stuck the leather on the airbag at the same time . My question is , does it matter which way round the airbag connection wire plug goes back in ? It looks like it can be plugged in...

    Spyder handling transformed .

    Yesterday I totally transformed the handling of my Spyder . Coming from a VX220 ( Lotus Elise alternative ) which had very tight , on rails type handling I found the Spyder a bit wallowy and baggy , I knew about the scuttle shake but she really shook her head at certain speeds and grunting past...
