Hi All,

As you know, I am moving out of the world of Twingo with the plan to move on to bigger and better things.
I had a few choices with a brief flicker of BMW pining, but subsequentially decided it would cost a f*ck load to fix so computer said no.

SO, it's Japanese, it's not neccessarily bigger but is better :)

Will follow up some pics once I collect :D SO EXCITED!

This will be a progress/build thread ;)

I was thinking S200. I regret not getting one but going back and forth to Watford would kill my bank account

They're pricey. If you find a decently priced one it already got some mileage on the counter.
Nonetheless, they're LEGEN-wait for it-DARY cars!

I've lost the "Microwave" link :S

Will get some pictures tomorrow hopefully :)
Had a good choice to go over it with a fine tooth comb today to go digging and find any issues - unfortunately I found a few but HOPEFULLY, not too many :)

Mmmmmmm, peri port :)

Unfortunately, she's been in the ICU with some ECU issues (see what I did there), so I've not have the chance to get it cleaned and out for some pics :(

It is LOUD, but not Peri port loud and isn't Rotary :P

Well, this has been quiet...and probably still will be for a while because it has yet MORE issues, but I'll at least give you some pics :)

Now:

Been a bit of a tough story this one :cry:

Picked it up on August 15th. Took a flight out from Edinburgh to Belfast and then drove it from Belfast to Larne for the ferry to Cairnryan, then to Stranraer to tax it and back home to Clackmannan.

It had the annoying mechanical chime over 100kmph which did my head in and a fair missfire from 6.8 to 7.5 and was just running a bit s**t.
The power steering rack was completely gone and 2 of the wheels were buckled...good start :(

Tried to start it on Monday morning and it failed me. 3 Days Driven.
Had an individual COP conversion on the OE ECU which causes load of issues so an engine re-wire, new ECU, S-86 dizi relocation kit and magnecor custom lead set later, she sparked up.

After that, I got the rack pulled out for an AW11 manual rack and the engine started death rattle like a goodun :( think it was just oil starvation after sitting for too long but who knows, fecked now. Total - 5 Days Driven.

Plan is to get a 20v in to replace the current one and rebuild the current one properly in the winter - Head Cleanup, Cams, Rods, Pistons.

I've got a load of parts waiting to go in it - Shifter rebuild, Cusco Catch Can, Dash Lights, Replacement Switch Plate for heater controls and then I can start enjoying it again :P

I'll keep this updated as much as I can :)
