  1. Thanks mate - I'm afraid I don't have anywhere near that kind of budget. Hence not being able to repair it at the moment. I'm going to try and do it over time to keep costs down and get a run around in the meantime.
  2. Apologies for fueling the flames. Done nearly 20k Iover the last 2.5 years and loved every mile. Pretty gutted and easily wound up as a result. Thanks to everyone who has helped.
  3. Agreed. I normally stay out of it but given recent circumstances I'm a bit ticked off. Apologies. Over and out.
  4. I honestly feel like this might not even be sarcasm at this point. Anyway, it's a vegetable drink. You should try it sometime.
  5. ***** almighty. Using power isn't the same as going over the speed limit. You can get a 1.0 micra to break the speed limit. You write as if your engine is full of carbon deposits, is it?
  6. Unless you remove the backboxes in which case it pounces at a nano-second into a suitably roaring lion. And so on. I think some of the slipper and pipe brigade on here should be buying themselves electric cars. They're very quiet in case you weren't aware. You can leave the v8s to those that appreciate them then. 😂👍 https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?id=OGC.d028ce216f6b11b46240b449fbbbd6af&pid=Api&rurl=https%3a%2f%2fmedia.giphy.com%2fmedia%2f3ohjV9dp72oWsOP3mo%2fgiphy.gif&ehk=RGxvmFeKjzlC7tu4tCQYdA
  7. Not in my ownership - but there was an intermittent rev issue when I bought it which cleared up after an oil change and few miles of driving. I had the cambelt off twice as the first waterpump was faulty but that's only thing that's been done.
  8. Why does every thread on here descend into people getting upset about modifications or moaning about never using power. You fellas know what a v8 is at all? I've looked after this car impeccably and regardless of whether or not it receives a battering (it doesn't) it should be able to cope with no issues.
  9. The mk3 looks great and is a great car. The mk4 is a better car.
  10. How do I contact Paul? I can't find a website or ebay page etc.
  11. Wouldn't want to lose power and mpg by going to a mk3. Valves are bent. Just weighing up the best options now. 2nd hand head? What could've caused this?! 😞
  12. I'm reading that it's interference (98). It's not seized - spun over which leads me to assume bent valves.
  13. Camshaft pulley has fallen apart on one side and it's skipped 4 teeth. Happened on the motorway. What would you say my options are going to be?
