  1. Hi, I have CR CDI's in both my cars, 2.2 and 2.4 E with MFI. The 2.4 was only recently fitted and to quote my mechanic "ran like a dog" when first connected to the CR CDI. The unit was drawing too much power and Simon placed a relay in line to it which solved the problem. Car runs perfectly now.
  2. Ryan thanks, I thought the bonnet release cable tube looked a little fragile but i'll give that a try. Regards,
  3. Thanks. I'd seen similar, how do you make them work on a long hood ? not enough room to pass the cable between the hood and its frame and no 'natural' attachment points in the trunk ?
  4. For those occassional track days requiring a secondary bonnet restraint and not wanting to use something external like the GHE rubber tie down or bonnet pins, what are you using ? Thanks
  5. Mine arrived Friday ! Had a quick look under the hood and promptly shut it gotta figure out how to get around the fuel pipe etc …
  6. I think with the steel bonnet on the T or 993 it's not going to be an issue, even the most ham fisted mechanic would get a little resistance and not force it down, you would think ... I've ordered 4, I'll let you know how they go 👍

  8. Hi Gavin, I'd love a Macan but settled on the SQ5 with the 3.0 TFSI motor. It does everything we need just back from a couple of thousand K's north and west, tows beautifully and my understanding is its pretty much the same underpinnings as the Macan, the only option I'd probably stump for next time is the air suspension.
  9. Going back to what John said earlier, it's easy to forget just how hand built these cars were well in to the '80's. Whilst this whole vid is worth watching if you scroll through to about 12:30 it's pretty scary ... Factory tolerance is 3.5-4.0mm for gaps pre '73 not sure after that, HTH.
  10. If you've recently re charged or changed your hood shocks, and they are 'over' charged, these can twist the lid, particularly the engine lid.
  11. looks like the old 901 on steroids John, colour wise at least ...
