Own up. Who crashed the type-s

Post by Scott560 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:56 am

Its a hassle to strip parts from a car, and ship em off / delivery, and end up with your driveway looking like a scrap yard.

Hoarding parts is rarely useful - the quality of the original parts are very high, so the failure of them is rare. Outside of service parts , or minor parts that can be substituted with generic things, how often do you find yourself needing to replace a specific part...

I wouldn't mind the seats if they offered a bit more support during track days, but would struggle to justify the expense and hassle of buying the whole car.

Yep. I've always felt under-privileged having only two.

I thought they followed the N+1 rule? :lol:
Sadly one is in pieces at the moment as it's in the process of being converted to a manual and my daily will be going up for sale, I'm too attached to it :roll:

bah humbug, went to register - but noticed it says you cant place any bids until your proof of address has been verified etc :(

300+vat + small hammer price fee + any storage still a bit of a bargain... I was only after the seats lol

Yeah, it's sold now. I didn't bother in the end, I just don't have the time more than anything else.

I was tempted - if the registration process hadnt have required an activation (proof of adress docs) then id have been bidding - should have checked in with the mrs yesterday instead of leaving it last minute...
