    Arctic 182 'OEM+' progress thread

    Still got them, they're just horrifically out of balance and buckled lol so figured I'd use the pro races for a while. At least until I get tyres for the turinis

    Arctic 182 'OEM+' progress thread

    Can't believe it's been almost a year since I updated this! Decided it needed a change of wheels again... Not much has happened tbh, it's not been used much but things have slowly been getting fixed. Got an extremely cheap donor car and it's been used loads so far to fix little things here...

    Martin's Clio DCi Van

    Conveniently... I have a set of 182 half leather front seats going spare 👀 Leather on the drivers bolster is a bit worn, but they're in one piece.

    Megane RS250 Cup

    This looks so mean from the front! Pretty sure I passed you the other week just around about Crainlarich. I think anyway. I was on the bike with 2 mates and it was raining that heavy I could hardly see lol.

    What premium tyres with comfort in mind?

    This is interesting, I've put assy 3s on the back of my E92 and had my share of B road fun since they went on. Not checked the tyres but I'm defo going to have a look now!

    Small bump - advice needed

    Just get your friend of a friend to make up the bill for the work and send it to the guy before forking out for it yourself? Edit: beaten to it lol

    Ahh that's unlucky! I assumed they weren't sold or they'd be packaged up. Suppose not if someones collecting them though 😂

    Lancer Evolution Appreciation Thread

    Oor Reece will be selling his old ones I think. I know he's got new ones for his new build anyway and I've seen the old ones still lying in the unit. Pretty certain they're Bilsteins too.

    I may know of some second hand coilovers for sale nearby for you...

    sburrell's dci 100

    Yeah they all fit. 172/182 springs worked well on the dci as the weight is similar. Wouldn't imagine it would work very well on a 1.2 petrol or something.

    Anyone give me an idea of parts cost from Renault - 197 just been hit up the back

    There's no way he's going to get away with not going through insurance. Headlights on a M140i alone for example are worth over a grand! He'll go insurance when he eventually realises what it'll cost him. Just speed up the process and start going through yours.

    sburrell's dci 100

    I'm not sure sorry! I'd guess around 40mm going off the pictures and what I can remember. They were Eibach sportlines for a 172/182.

    Agreed, but if that's what you're after it's quite practical!

    Spray bottle for tar remover.

    Interested in also finding something for this. Been through about 5 spray bottles with tar remover and they all just die off after a while! Found these: but they do say to remove the dip tube when storing for long...

    Addicted's Audi A5 3.0 TDI Quattro

    They had the sportback on the previous model too. For example... 9 years they've been around I think!

    Steering angle sensor issue

    Already had the steering wheel off and turned the angle sensor back 360 degrees to centre (it was indeed one turn out) but that didn't make a difference. Assuming that has the same effect as rotating the whole column anyway, as there's no other sensors I know of that detect the position. It's...

    Cracking stuff ( see pic )

    Interesting that. I'm pretty sure my boss's A5 had the same issue with a set of Dunlop Sport Maxx's. Also were only a year or two old at most and would be lucky if they done 5k. Think they were worse than that mind you. I'd be inclined to just replace those. If they're on the rear of a clio...

    How to disconnect the battery without the alarm going off

    I assume car alarms are self powered somehow so they still function without the battery, like in this case. We had a similar issue with the house alarm before where if they power cut out, the alarm would start to go off. It was the backup battery dying, so the alarm in the outside sounder box...

    Steering angle sensor issue

    On a 182. SERV and traction light comes on as soon as I move the wheel away from the centre position. All the lights go off when the car starts up and it works fine but as soon as the steering wheel is moved the lights come on. Any ideas what would be causing this? When I dropped the subframe...

    Wheel cleaner

    Bilt hamber autowheel/korrosol is pretty good as far as fallout removers go. Considerably cheaper than Iron X too

    Exhaust options?

    Go without, worst case scenario you can get them to weld a resonator into the centre section at a later date if it's too loud for you?

    Maybe take a run up on the bike for a watch if I get home from work in time. Sure as f**k won't be making it in a Clio anyway lol

    The New Phone Thread

    I've not had any of their phones since the OP2, which tbh, I thought was worse than the Oneplus one I had lol, but they seemed to up their game a bit after that. I'm hoping for waterproofing (sort of confirmed) and wireless charging. If it's got that and a good camera I think I'll be seriously...

    The New Phone Thread

    Anybody been following rumours for the oneplus 6? Looking like it could be a very decent phone but prices are rising every model... Been considering replacements for my S8 so waiting to see how the OP6 looks. I like the S8 and don't mind the Samsung UI but the time they take to roll out OS...

    Detailing Chat & Questions Thread

    I buy the Costco packs of 36 and use them on paintwork once or twice. Give em a wash if they're a bit dirty but demote them to interior cleaning or wheels, tyre shine etc. Then probably just chuck them after that. They're never the same after a wash

    Undersealing recomendations?

    Have a look at Upol Raptor. Not sure on cost vs anything else you've looked at but a couple of my mates have used it now and it's meant to be fantastic stuff

    Hmm weird. That works every time on mines. For edge lighting notifications anyway. Any apps that use those, it seems to work on.

    Figured it out. Swipe down on a notification to open it in a popup window! Definitely a new Oreo feature as I've never had it do that before the update either.

    The New Phone Thread

    I had this also the other week! Got a WhatsApp notification and it opened in a pop up window and not full screen. No f**king idea how I did it though! Definitely only happened since the Oreo update. I know Google maps works with "picture-in-picture" where if you come out the app while using...
