    Just seen this.

    Have left three sets of Alloy Wheels at CPC in Digbeth so far this year and another two sets ten days ago which I shall collect soon.

    Delighted with their service and they now have a female receptionist on the front counter which usually means the phone does get answered by someone instead of leave a message as staff busy.

    Now had conformation wheels all done.

    I shall collect those two sets early next week.

    Hi John, long time no speak. Sadly, I've sold my MGTF now but I was wondering if these would be of any interest to you as they're still cluttering up my shed and the Mrs is giving me grief.

    Great set of winter tyres to keep you/your lad on the road once the weather turns crappy over the winter! I'll even knock a few quid off and drop them off for you if interested.

    Cheers
    Dave

    Hi John,

    Thank you for your quick response, much appreciated.

    Sounds like you're the go to man

    I'm based in Chelmsford, Essex but travelling isn't an issue for me. I'll be looking to produce more than 200ps from the 1.8T engine. So I think the 14 ball bearings would be the route I'd like to take.
    I shall give you a ring during this week coming as I've only just seen your message now.

    Hi John,

    I read many moons ago that you fitted uprated stainless steel bearings to your gearbox?! I currently own a Mk1 160 which I've turned into my 1.8 K-Series turbo build, I'm looking to uprate the PG1 gearbox but been told that the 220 turbo gearing and LSD can fit in the bell-housing of the 160 PG1. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction of the right bearings to purchase, ideally I want the bearings you used.
    Also would you consider doing the gearbox build for me obviously name your price haha, I'm just out of my depth here but would be happy to help if you would consider taking the job on.

    Looking forward to your reply

    Jay Lawrence.

    PS by I'm all/most of the Facebook groups if that easier to talk on.

    hi john
    if you can give me some pointers to my 620 engine prob it would be great as the missus wants me to sell coz its just parked on the garden

    i dont wanna sell,i want it back on the road

    if you send me an email adress ill send u some pics,,then u will see why im still deeply in love with the old bugger

    ive never liked the colour(zircon) as my old one i had in 2004 was green and was much prettier but like a fool i sold it and it only lasted 3 days in the hands of the next owner,,it got wrapped round a transit van as he couldnt handle the power unfortunately

    ill go and take some pics in a bit,,id love to share them with you,,#

    i hope you can get my enthusiasm for the car back on track

    i remember a conversation on the fone with u a few yrs ago when i had a power steering pump off u,,seems an age ago now,,not used the car a lot since,,such a shame
    regards
    richard
