6n2 Suspension Upgrade!

Hey guys,Hey guys, I'm looking for a suspension upgrade for my 6n2. Currently on budget TA Technix coilovers which have done the job until now, but I'm looking for something more comfortable and with the ability to go lower. I've got around £500 to spend and I've been looking at these: http://www.aw...

Centre Bore of Schmidt Modernlines 1 Piece

Hey again, Recently bought these : http://i.imgur.com/tu53hHw.jpg I noticed 2 of them have spigot rings: http://imgur.com/LM0AwjM.jpg I just don't know the centre bore of the wheels themselves. I've tried measuring but not 100% sure it's correct it was around 62mm? I took pics of the inside of the r...

Could do with a refurb. Bought these before Christmas, but due to circumstances I can't keep them :( didn'...

Re: Temperature gauge not in the middle

Re: Temperature gauge not in the middle

Haven't had any problems starting the past couple of really cold days. The car warms up fine, get hot air blowing through without any problems within 5-7 min. No warning lights coming up, and it had MOT done right before I bought it and passed with 0 advisories. My journey to work includes a lot of ...

Re: Temperature gauge not in the middle

Re: Temperature gauge not in the middle

Nope, I've only had the car for 3 months and haven't had any problems with it. I just happened to read this post and thought, oh crap I think mine might not be working properly. Could it just be the sensor?

Re: Standard Steel Wheel Size on 2000 6n2?

Ah okay thank you, looks like the previous owner bought the wrong ones then... Didn't realise until 3 months later haha. Well I think I'm gonna get the 15 alloys, cheap set for with decent 195/50/15 tyres for £80. I was only holding off because of the huge rolling radius difference but seeing as its...
