    It’s an Sti. Loved that era of Scoob tbh, just glad I own one now. Am heading out to storage to drive it Friday and struggled to sleep for thinking about it. Sad as that is.

      Cool collection you've got there. They have a lot of driven wheels between them!

        Mini back with all the extra work and repair work done. The Ultra Gauge is in limbo somewhere in the DOD system, but it has passed customs according to their tracking. So, I've taken it easy with the Mini, just in case, however, my first small 20 minute trip in it after bringing it home I realised the fan started up after parking it. Usually a sign of low coolant. When I cam back to the car an hour later I checked the level and noticed quite a bit of dry coolant around the bottle. Mostly around the top of the seam, so I suspected the expansion bottle had split when it overheated, or maybe it even caused the issue in the first place. I decided there was enough coolant to get me home, and sure enough, popped the hood and there was coolant bubbling from the side. New bottle ordered and replaced, so I'm back to waiting for the gauge.

        Collecting new wheels for S8 and then collecting S8 to return to storage, should also have an update on Lada then.

        The Sti has it's NCT soon and will probably go back to storage then, once I get a little bit of body work sorted on it. Maybe an engine detailing too.

          Mini sorted with Ultra Gauge

          Work on Lada started, but it always looked like this.

                unfortunately, the closure means loss of an income, so I've little option... Not happy about it at all tbh.
