    Brake pad recommendations.

    I had mintex 1144 and used them everyday and for sprinting my clio trophy at places like Coombe, landow etc and they never missed a beat. But some people say they are rubbish but my experience was a good one

    Clio trophy

    Hi all, Any trophy’s likely to come up for sale soon? I have seen the ones on eBay and they don’t have Sachs or are not original so keen to ideally get one needing some work or ready to go. I used to own number 409 but sold it last year. I am after one to be driven rather than stuck in a...

    Low Mileage Trophy for sale.

    There are a few cars about at the minute but in my opinion the prices being asked isn’t representative of the quality, prep and standard of the cars. for example there is one on 126k with little or no info on the belts, Sachs refurbs and a few other things - the seller wants £6k. Good luck and...

    Removing interior carpet

    So good!!

    Don’t say that, I sold my trophy earlier this year as I wasn’t using it. And have just managed to persuade my wife an alien green 200 is a good purchase.. are the 200’s not great? Gearboxes better than the 197? thanks pete
