    Dont want to start an argument here or offend anyone but i'll say it anyway...... Why is it when theres drag racing mentioned all the track nuts come on and try to downgrade its appeal or try and make it sound crap, for the people who enjoy it I hope they never get disheartened by the...

    Crail: 300bhp astra vs ek9

    The astra wasnt 300bhp if you read the comments in the video. And at crail the more power you have (especially front wheel drive) the harder it is to put on the ground cos the surface is dire. I'm not here to take anything away from what you see in the video because I wasnt there and dont...

    Sounds like a good day out :) Make sure to get some mileage on the clutch before you go to break it in properly (suppose to be around 500 miles) just try getting as much as possible !

    what grade oil for my s80 ?

    If you pop into your local Honda dealer parts dept you should be able to buy some MTF the S80 takes 2.2 litres IIRC - try and take a container for them to put it into.

    Issues with high revs?

    If you keep trying to shift at high RPM's and forcing it you will damage your gearbox. The good thing with your issue is you know you have a worn clutch, this is actually a good thing because its showing a large chance that it is the problem. There is many reasons why you might not be able...

    Bushes etc..!?

    I have no personal experience on these bushes or hardrace just from what I have read. I havent seen a direct comparison either but PIC suspension components are very highly regarded in USA. I think comparing them to Hardrace may be a hard task as they are similar design I think the PIC...

    Thinking of saying bye to my ek9 already...

    An EK9 to me is an engineering masterpiece a true drivers car, no other way to explain it. A Seat Leon is a rebrand of a VW Golf which is just a normal car thats in the market for normal drivers/normal everyday people to buy to have a little more fun in their daily commute, i'm not saying I...

    Thinking of saying bye to my ek9 already...

    Wow, more mature car? An EK9 aint immature, maybe some of the mods ive seen fowks do make them look like teenage boy racers but that can happen with any car. And a leon is more like, unreliable, lumbersome, numb, boring VAG, doesnt get a second look, common car (in comparison to an EK9). My...

    Just buy the EK4 kit! All the components involved in the 5stud swap are identical to the ek4 minus the actual hub!

    Bushes etc..!?

    I'd rather use hard race stuff which is hard rubber rather than poly bushes, i've never been a big fan of poly bushes tbh. I'm sure more people will have opinions on the matter and i'll try and find a link to some hard race stuff...

    lights pealing?

    Ahhh I just re-read it and makes sense ha, yeah a good machine polish would make them a lot better. Stick them in the oven separate the lense from the headlight casing then re-seal them with sealant. While you have got them seperated you could paint the inside to match EK9 headlights if you...
